I don’t think it would look stupid to have one blue and one yellow dress. If you want to call more attention to the Maid/Matron of Honor you could also give her a different bouquet. Try not to stress about it too much because that won’t help you at all.
Could you have a jr. bridesmaid who would wear the same color as the non-MOH bridesmaid? The flower girl could also wear the same color of the non-MOH.
That’s all I can think of now but I’m sure the hive will have more ideas for you! GOOD LUCK!!!!!!

Are you saying that you have purchased extra dresses?  Or that your Maid/Matron of Honor purchased a blue and your other Bridesmaid or Best Man purchased a yellow?  A couple of things:

1.  You could go back and ask the Maid/Matron of Honor to wear yellow.  And distinguish her in another way.  (Different bouquet, jewelry, a sash or embellishment on the dress.)  Or if you prefer have the other Bridesmaid or Best Man wear blue.  But either way, I would NOT ask either of them to pay for another dress.  It isn’t their fault that this situation happened.

2.  You could leave as is, and have the one Bridesmaid or Best Man wear yellow (with a blue bouquet) and the Maid/Matron of Honor wear blue(with a yellow bouquet).  Really this would look cute.  And better yet, no mess, no fuss, (hopefully no tears).  Problem solved.

3.  Why not check again on that Bm who is still hanging?  If money is the issue, maybe you could privately offer to pay for her dress.

4.  If you’re not keen on asking Future Sister-In-Law, and she isn’t into being in the wedding, I wouldn’t bother.  But if you decide to go down that road, I guess I would ask her her size before buying the dress.

I’m sure it will all work out.  But even if you end up with just the two girls, I think hte easiest, and still adorable idea would be to have one in yellow and one in blue.

Well I guess you have to throw your hands up and say something will work out.  If they are both pregnant now,  I think they will have plenty of time to fit back into that dress.  Maybe swix months, or more.  Also, is it their 1st pregnancies?  It’s a little easier to bounce back the fewer pregnancies you’ve had.  Just my own experiences.

What about alternating sashes? Like the girl in the blue dress gets a yellow sash (and yellow shoes?) and the girl in the yellow dress gets a blue sash (and blue shoes?) so they match each other better?

They might need some spanx but they’ll have enough time to get back into them i think! And the sash may help too
