My dress color is ivory on the bottom and a champagne color on top. My wedding colors is a dark purple. (either plum or lapis) and champagne. My question is I have only 2 girls standing up with me, should I have them in purple? Or champagne? I really like the purple but I’m afraid that their bouquets will blend in too much since i planned on purple flowers. But with the champagne color dresses I think they will be too close to my dress. Any suggestion will help!

Do the dark purple dresses and purple flowers, but incorporate lots of white flowers into the bouquet…. personally I feel hydrangeas would be stunning against the plum dresses! 🙂

That’s a pretty bouquet. Yes I should have mentioned that I wasn’t doing all purple. I did want some whites in it as well. Thank you!

The purple is the only color that works for me. The champagne is a washout and the pink undertone of the biscotti does not work with the yellow undertone of your dress.

Firstly, we have the same dress! Secondly, go with the purple! I think it will look amazing together!

I think purple dresses with purple, white, and light color flowers would look fantastic together.

Actually, my bigger concern with the beige dresses would be how they will look against your girls’ skin. The champagne dress will likely look gorgeous on warm/gold-toned girls but make cool/rose-toned girls look washed out; the biscotti dress will probably do the opposite. If all your girls share similar skin undertones, then it could be perfect to go for either of those, and I do love neutrals. I don’t think they would be a problem with your dress – IMO it would just make the bridal party very soft and natural.
That all said, I think the lapis is gorgeous and would probably be the safest bet.

Cassidylouise: I just got my dress over the weekend and was excited because I actually bought it off the rack and need hardly any alterations.
Bananafairy: That was another one of my fears. One tans very easily while the other does not. I just forgot to mention that as well.

Definitely the purple, and I would go with pale flowers for the bridemaids. The purple and champange are such rich, bold colours, I think you’re better playing off on the drama.
These aren’t exactly the same colours, but it shows how stunning it can look:
