for an evening october wedding...what do you girls think of espresso or mocha colored bridemaids dresses? with ivory or white flowers for bouquet with maybe a hint of color? and if so what color shoudl i throw in to the bouquets? any help is welcomed!!!! thanks
I think those colours are gorgeous. It has a classy air to it and by having white or ivory bouquets, I think you are complimenting the brown tones. I think ivory would be better than white because white is too bright.
As for splashes of colour, that depends on other colour themes in your wedding. I think red would look very rich and striking. Pink could work too. Purple too. I would stay away from warm colours like orange, yellow and so on. It might just make everything look dirty.
the color is theme is really just the browns (espresso, chocolate colors and ivory)...but i would like to add some color in the girls bouquets!!! i was thinking the same colors...i think maybe a pink or purple with the ivory!!! thanks girls!!!! and good luck to you!!!
Oooh... yeah I do like the idea of lime green and brown, that would be gorgeous.
But yeah orange and yellow with the brown looks too dirty to me. Its like there is a rusty or earthy quality to it thats just not appealing as a grand colour scheme. If these colours were on something small like a cake that would be pretty but not as a big colour scheme. I dont think it would look nice in pictures either.
The idea of green is kind of cool though. It would be striking and the pictures would look awesome. Maybe you could have centerpeices with cut limes in them or even in the bouquets. Ive seen this done with lemons.
Either way you go, I think youre going to have an interesting colour scheme for your wedding! Will you let us know what you choose?
My daughter used espresso dresses for her wedding. You can see a picture on our website. Almost any color goes, whether you stick to the neutrals or add some pop with an accent color. myra at www.classysassyweddings.com
ah!!!!! I'm very excited! There is a Jim Hjelm dress that would be awesome for you. It is a dropped waist (so it fits lots of body types) tea length dress with pink piping at the top and a narrow pink ribbon. (not that you couldn't get it in other colors, but this is the one in the advertisements). It's GORGEOUS!!!!!
I was actually thinking of esspresso for my wedding in October and had my heart set on it, but someone made a good point that the color may not look good, next to a black tux. Just a thought, you may want to have a tux the same color or maybe it won't bother you, just thought I'd mention it. Let me know what you decide. Good Luck
