I just ordered my dress and am trying to decide on the BM dresses now. We are having a garden wedding. I have four BM’s, and then one Jr. BM and a flowergirl. My FI will be wearing a dark gray suit and the groomsmen will be wearing charcoal gray suits (similar to the picture, but maybe a bit darker) and I think the ringbearer will probably have something like a vest or suspenders.
I really want the girls in nude/pink dresses. This is my inspiration picture:
And this is the board I just made to compare the dresses I like with my dress, bouquet (sorry its blurry here) and the gray suits:
The first dress in the second row also comes in more of a pink color, but I’m not sure if its too bright, whereas this one is more of a taupe. And here is what I am thinking for the FG:
I am not sure what the Jr. BM would wear yet, but what do you all think? Could we pull this off? I really want the girls to have dresses with detail and are mismatched and fun. If you don’t like it, will you please suggest some dresses in this color range?

I think they would look nice but it sorta depends. I’m personally SUPER pale so if I wore a color like that I would look naked. But if you had darker toned girls I think it would look nice 🙂

I think it could look really classy! Are those the actual dresses that your girls have in mind?

Love it! So vintage/modern but whimsical as well, if that makes sense!! I love the mismatched aspect of it with the creamy pinks/nudes. I say go for it!

I totally love your entire color scheme! It’s so romantic. Perfect for a June wedding.
There just one thing, & it’s just a general personal preference. Firstly, I like short BM dresses; however, I think it looks awkward when the bride is wearing a long dress & her BMs are wearing super short dresses – even if it’s an outdoor wedding. The attention should be on the bride. Not sure if you’ve picked out your BM dresses yet. Just food for thought.

All of my girls are between 5’0″ and 5’3″ so I’m not sure how short these would actually be on them. Hmm.

@Shiner:As a shortie myself, I can tell you they won’t be too short on your ladies. You may still want a photo of each lady before she buys her dress.
Love the concept.

Those dresses would be around above the knee or knee length on me. I’m 5’3. Very pretty! I think it’s super romantic!

Personally I like there to be some contrast between to the bride and the BMs, so am not really a fan of this look.

I like the style of all of the dresses, but as a freakishly pale Irish girl, I can tell you without even trying them on that I would look terrible in those colors. I think it depends a lot on the skin tone of your BMs.

BEAUTIFUL!!! I especially LOVE that none of them are the same style or shade yet it flows!!

I like the first picture, but it really depends on the coloring of your BMs. I’m super-pale with red hair and would look absolutely naked in one of those shades, unless it was pretty close to ivory or white. If you’ve seen your girls in those colors before and it looks good, go for it!

Not my style, I like very bright colors, but it’s very pretty.
