I’d really like for my bridesmaids to wear a very pale yellow dress, and I see a lot of very pretty ones online.. just not where to order them! My bridesmaids are all long distance and they don’t even live close to each other. Does anyone know of a popular website that would have this color? I’ve looked and looked but I’m having a hard time.
I’d love to find a site with this particular color so that I can leave the rest up to them, since they all have very different body types, but if anyone has come across a sundress in this shade (doesn’t necessarily have to be a bridesmaid dress) please share it with me! I’d love for them to be able to wear it again. Wedding is going to be more on the casual side if that helps.
Thanks a bunch!

Have you looked at Light in the box? They have a great range.
Here is a link to their short dresses in light yellow
This is the link to their long dresses in light yellow
Hope that helps. I’ve heard quite a lot of positive reviews about them and they’ve been around for years.

One thing I will say, is that yellow is quite a hard colour to pull off well. I did want one of my bridesmaids in yellow but thought it was too mean as her skin tone had yellow undertones. My other bridesmaid was blonde, so that was a no!
Hopefully you can get it to work. I still wish my bridesmaid would have worn it but even though she would have, I knew she preferred a different colour so we went with that!

Alarae makes a really good point about yellow.

David’s Bridal has “canary” for a pale yellow. There are certainly locations everywhere so your girls could even go try stuff on in person. I checked on their website and it looks like you have tons of options in that color.
(This is not my pic or my wedding – just pulled off Google to show the color)

Yes, I totally agree with this. During this whole process I’ve been trying to get their opinions on different colors and I want to make sure they are all comfortable in whatever color we go with. So far they’ve all agreed to go with yellow but they’d like to see some options first, which is why I was looking for a website. I think yellow is gorgeous but you’re absolutely right, and we may end up going with a different color when all is said and done.

For some reason one of my sisters nixed the idea of David’s Bridal but it looks like they have some nice dresses. I will definitely take a look. Thanks!

I always had good luck buying dresses at davids bridal–just dont get them altered there unless you wanna pay big $$!

I don’t think many people can pull off pale yellow…it tends to wash you out if your skin tone is anything but tan/dark. Would think seriously before making your BM’s wear that color!

Thanks for all the input. My bridesmaids are all dark-haired with pretty tan skin. Still might go with a different color. I appreciate you all for sharing these ideas with me, makes it easier to think about! 🙂

If all your girsl are tanned/dark then they are just the ones who can wear pale yellow. And they all say they are happy to wear it . I wouldn’t give up your dream just yet! I’d send them the links pointing out the ones you like best or just give them free rein. There were some very pretty dresses there.

We got our dresses from Dessy and they have a million colors.

I looooove a buttercup yellow or even paler than that but I will say I have yellow undertones and just cannot wear the color. Hopefully none of your bridesmaids suffer the same fate!
I would recommend asos or modcloth, they generally have dresses in various colors.
