I think you’ll be better off having her wear a different color.  You’ll probably have trouble finding a perfectly color-matched dress.  If her dress color is just slightly different it will looked mismatched; if it’s a totally different complimentary color it will look intentional.

I think it would look great if you chose a complimentary color for your Maid/Matron of Honor and your sister.  I, too, am not a fan of the cookie cutter BMs, so don’t think it’s necessary to find expresso dresses to match the J. Crew dresses.

I like your idea of a champagne or lighter color in the brown family.  Have you considered a complimentary color that’s entirely different?  Brown is such a hot color combo with different colors right now. 

I attended a wedding recently where all the BMs were in chocolate dresses, and the Maid/Matron of Honor was in a powder-blue dress, then another one where BMs were in chocolate, and Maid/Matron of Honor was in a celedon green color.  Both tied it all together with bouquets that featured the Maid/Matron of Honor dress color in it and they were gorgeous.

Since your sister will have a pink sash, how about choosing a pink dress for the MOH?  Pink, Latte and Expresso would look fantastic!
