I’m putting mine in light blue, and three out of four of the girls said they really liked the color. You can never make everyone happy, but I don’t feel like a light blue is that bad! Try referring to it as sky blue instead of baby blue and maybe it will put it in a better light, too :).

My girls wore light blue as well, slightly darker than baby blue but 2 of the 3 have blue eyes so blue looks really good on them anyway. I’m still not sure how they felt about the dresses but they looked nice in photos and none of them expected to be able to wear the dress again regardless.

What designer/color light blue did you guys go with?  My wedding colors are light blue, medium blue and white.  I’d like to put the bridesmaids in light blue with medium blue accents, but I’m having trouble finding a light blue that I like.

Nah.  Do what you like.  Lavender would actually be really pretty!  I hate the DB dress your bridal party thing.  All of the colors are so flat…it doesn’t give you a good idea of what everyone will look like at all!

I dont see anything wrong with pastels either, although I personally dont like tea length dresses. Dresses look best if they are full length [maxi] or knee length, Anything in between can sometimes look a bit awkward

Personally, I don’t look that great in pastels, but I think other people can wear them fabulously. I would opt for lavender over baby blue. I remember when my friend was trying to find Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses for her weddind, I tried on a knee-length chiffon lavender dress at David’s Bridal that was actually kind of nice. If I can find I’ll post pic.

I love pastels so my Maid/Matron of Honor is wearing a lavender dress from JCrew but I hate hate hate tea lenght. So she’s going to alter it to knee length. The other ladies are wearing grey dresses. Yes, they don’t blend. No neither my Fiance nor my mother love it. Yes, they are still wearing it. Our colors are lilac, pink and grey and those were the colors the ladies picked.

I put my girls in yellow. They might hate the dress. but they haven’t said anything to me about it. If they’re real friends they’ll wear whatever you want. I know I’d do it for any of them!

Yeah, for this day and age, pastels are really hard to convince anyone to wear.  But good friends will do it and not whine about it (to your face)!
