@Butterbee: i think lavender might be better than baby blue (personally), and I also think its fine, as long as the dresses are stylish, I see no problem with it, hope you find the perfect dresses!

I think it really depends on the dress. I’ve seen a lot of photos where the BM’S wore pastel colors and it looked amazing. Personally i would prefer baby blue over royal blue ( for example), everyone has a different taste

I would cry if someone put me in pastels.

@Butterbee: you can always just go with white….i know, some ppl frown upon it, but its not like it will look like wedding gowns. Or do you want a bit of colour?

@WillowH:

if you did use white, maybe you could also have a coloured  (pastel)  underskirt just peeping out from underneath.    that gives the splash of colour,,  but they then only have a white dress that they could maybe use again….?

Mine are wearing 4 different pastel colours,  50s style.   but they dont mind,  and i am paying for the dresses anyway,  so it wont matter to them too much.  i LOVE pastels. 

they are wearing a pastel dress, with a deeper colour underskirt….so a lilac dress will have a purple underskirt,   the pink dress will have a darker pink underskirt  and so on…

@anne B: I love your idea, sneeking the pastel in there, I would have totaly taken your advice on this one ! 🙂 and maybe add a coloured wasit band or something 🙂

@Butterbee: Don’t worry, I think the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are a bit of a worry for all brides! I still hope mine does not hate me for putting them in bright purple…they are more earth tone kind of girls, but my wedding is SUPER bright and colourfull like me, so I think they will still love me afterwards 🙂 good luck, post pics when you find the perfect dresses!!!!

Love the dress, and I think as long as you get the dresses right, they’d look fine in those colours.
