princessmiaofgenovia :  I attended a wedding last October that was hosted in a Greenhouse, so it had a similar look with all the greenery. The Bridesmaids wore a wine/burgundy colour. It was lovely! However I think something brighter might be in order, perhaps a yellow or orange? Or for some reason my mind is thinking of a soft lavender purple of some sort!

princessmiaofgenovia :  Maybe you could consider doing shades of different colours for the different girls? Might be a fun option if you want ti include both orange and yellow and then you can do pastels and brights depending on what each girl prefers! I bet it would turn out beautiful! ๐Ÿ™‚

I love the idea of the bright colours with the greenery in the back, I think it would be a stunning contrast!

I second the burgundy color.  Azazi has a really lush Raspberry color that would look great as well.  Why don’t you buy a couple swatches you like and bring them to your venue?

It might be easier for their skintones for them to wear coral, rather than orange or yellow.

I think magenta or a bright purple would look amazing and suits most skin colors. It’s also a great color for any season.

princessmiaofgenovia :  I totally agree with a lighter color against the dark beautiful landscaping.  Maybe a lighter shade of purple?

We had our wedding at a Italian villa style venue (wish it had been an actual Italian villa lol!) and I chose a deep grape color for my girls.  It was absolutely gorgeous.  My wedding colors were leafy greens, gold, and hits of deep grape.  I figured a “wine” theme would go well with my venue!  See below pics!  ETA: My bridesmaids were all different shapes and skin tones varrying from beautifully tanned Hispanic to a fair skinned red haired beauty (my hubs twin sister).

Let them choose a shade in the range that suits them? I have always perferred this way of dressing bridesmaids. They choose the style that looks best on their shape and the colour range that suits their skin tones and still look fantastic together.

Not my wedding. Just an example of orange/ yellow.

Burgundy was my first thought as well. I’ve seen a lot of weddings with heavy greenery and burngundy accents that look really nice.

I really like terracota as its bright enough, but not obnoxious. As it is a toned down bright color. It can be formal as well.

 

I also thought of a magenta. It is a great color to stand out in and it is a lively, dflowery color. ๐Ÿ™‚
