    thegingerbride:  Teal. I think as the BM’s are so lovely a pale (Whoop to us brits!) the champagne actually makes them look washed out. The teal is lovely and I think will go with the suits nicely. Props to the BM’s for the dress and socks look! I always do that and my Mum moans at me telling me I would probably like the damn outfit more if I bothered to take my bloody socks off! ha ha.

    I think the teal are too casual and the color, to me, is too much. The champagne are more formal and elegant and look better on your bridesmaids.

    I think the teal dresses clash with the (lovely) blue suit your Fiance is wearing.

    The style of the champaigne dresses are infintitly more flattering on your BM’s than the teal (I really don’t like the sleeves).

    Column dresses make people look longer and leaner in my opinion, plus your BM’s don’t need to purchase shoes in a specific colour with a floor length gown.

    thegingerbride:  I think a champagne color dress would be PERFECT but I’m not in love with the ones they are wearing. If it’s your only option, they I’d go with the champagne ones, but if not, I’d keep looking for some other kinds. 

    The teal are nice too, but it’s too much of a color contrast (IMO) with the grooms suit and your gorgeous dress and I’m not a huge fan of the sleeves.  They’re kinda… confusing, I guess.  Like long and bell shaped, but not long enough and not really bell shaped. 

    I think champagne would look much more formal and tie into your outfits better.

    Can you get the style of the champagne dresses but in the teal color? I think the teal color works much better with both of their complexions but the sleeveless style of the champagne dress is infinitely more flattering on both of them.

    I think the champagne long dresses are the most flattering on your BM’s both in style and colour.

    Agreed, I think that champagne dress fit the more formal style and it’s flattering  But echoing here, I agree with pps on a different color.  Also, I love the suits and your dress!

    The style of the long dress fits your event better and compliments their figures.  The color is not the best but the lighting in the store may be throwing it off.  Neutrals always look better in natural light rather than flourescent.  Given the choices it is the best option.  Maybe add a belt to compliment the suits or incorporate some color into the bouquets.

    Definitely Champagne! I think the teal and the blue suits kind of clash but maybe thats just me.

    I think the teal dress is more flattering on both bridesmaids, for their coloring and figures. They can dress up the look of the shost dress and look more formal with an updo, shoes, jewelry and accessories (perhaps a blingy belt or hair accessory).

    What about incorporating teal into the guys’ boutonnieres (flowers or ribbons) and champagne into the girls’ bouquets (maybe have them do their shoes and jewelry in the champagne tone too?)
