I’m having a vintage/rustic wedding incorporating lots of burlap and lace. I want green bridesmaids dresses with brown sashes. I love “clover” at David’s bridal but Im not a big fan of their dresses. Ive looked at other designers and their “clover” is either too dark or too bright and obnoxious. Any help would be much appreciated!
Here is clover at David’s Bridal.

I had the same problem but with teal. Nowhere had my shade of teal. So, I went with black dresses and I added teal sashes (home-made) that WERE in my color. And the girls looked stunning still!

J.Crew has beautiful bridesmaid dresses in a color called “jalepeno.” It’s a little darker than clover but would look gorgeous with chocolate brown sashes.

I’m using David’s Bridal clover for my wedding! I’m letting my girls pick their own dresses and my priority was keeping their costs as low as possible so that’s why I went with them.
I also loved “Apple Slice” by Dessy Group in their After Six collection. It’s pretty similar to clover so you should check that out =)

i know this won’t really fix your problem, but to answer the title’s question, it’s because the human eye can detect more shades of the color green than any other color. thus….there are a lot more greens to chose from! i’ve also noticed it can be quite difficult to find nice, subdued greens even in normal clothing and decor. good luck finding the one right for you!

I had this problem too which is why for the wedding I decided to use many shades of green and for the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses were doing black now… lol I hope you find what your looking for =)

I wanted my girls in green dresses as well, but I couldn’t for the life of me figure out how we were going to find the right dress. One girl is a size 18, one’s a size 6. Skin tones go from “pale and cool” to “quite dark and warm”. And to top it off, they’re spread across four states.
To avoid all the hassle, we’re going with mismatched dresses. My fiance and I went to Lowe’s, found paint chips in the shades of green we liked, and sent them off to the bridesmaids with some basic style pointers and the suggestion that they take the chips with them when they go dress shopping. I’m hoping it comes together nicely, and it should fit nicely with the laid-back feel of our wedding. So, you know, that’s something to consider.

First, if you find online a color that’s at least somewhat close to what you want, it might be worth it to see a swatch at a vendor. I found a Dessy dress I loved when we were Bridesmaid or Best Man dress shopping and I went and looked at a swatch and it was much brighter and more green than I was looking for. (my color was a soft tiffany blue) So it doesn’t hurt to at least see in person if the color is different than online.
Second, what about finding a dress in Clover from DB and then having it altered elsewhere to something you like a bit more? What is it you don’t like about the DB dresses? It’s possible that it’s something that could be easily changed/added.

Thanks for the great advice! Ive looked at After Six dresses and really like the Apple SLice color. I saw it in person and it wasn’t too bad. I’m really wanting a chiffon dress with a sash. The sash could be easily added but I do want to keep the cost down for my girls. I might try DB again. There might be something I missed. My girls are all so different. They range from 5’0 110 llbs to 5’5 200+lbs so I realyl want something that they all will be comfortable in. I thought about doing all different dresses but Im just not sure how i feel about the thought of a bunch of different lengths and fabrics. I swear the MB dresses are the most difficult part of this wedding. ALl of the other big stuff is done.

Have you thought about Bill Levkoff dresses? Pistachio or Kelly might be close, and he has TONS of styles for chiffon Bridesmaid or Best Man options:
