What color dress should my bridesmaids wear for this wedding theme?

Asked by ItalianPrincess1217 (10529points) August 17th, 2014

I am having a rustic wedding with the main colors being purple and green with some brown on things such as burlap and twine decor. What color bridesmaids dresses should the girls wear? The purples are so hard to match and green can look like a St. Patty’s Day celebration. What would compliment the theme nicely and still look flattering?

How about very pale lilac. Or pale emrald green?

Hmm, what color dress are you wearing?

I think they should wear purple. Use greens sparsely and you will be golden (as in perfect and well off)

Make sure your purple has more red in it than blue so it can pop off the minimal green decor. IE Use a hotter looking purple than a deeper color.

What about letting them choose varying shades of purple?

I agree with @Kardamom. That’s a great color.

One of these greens would look good with a sash in the purple that @Kardamom posted.

@Kardamom I love that color! That would work really nicely I think.

I like @dappled_leaves green with the eggplant purple.
