If you're arranging a wedding, you will find plenty of details to arrange and choose upon, from picking your wedding dress to setting a date and booking a photographer. Even so, you also have to aim a few of your focus in your wedding party, particularly your bridesmaids. Amongst your bridal shower, bachelorette party and your big day, your girls will be helping you out a lot. You'll need to decide on their dresses, including the fashion, length and especially the color with the dresses.

Can you use brown as a bridesmaid dress in March? My wedding was originally planned for October has moved to March. I liked my colors so much, I kinda wanted to keep them. So the idea was to use a brown dress with a turquoise sash, but that doesn't seem very springy. I need advice!

What if you reversed the colors? Maybe a turquoise print in a sheer fabric with a brown satin ribbon?

It depends on the brown -I think - if you go too dark it would not work, but a bit warmer lighter brown with a soft turquoise (not too jewel tone - more soft spring turquoise) would be nice I think! Fresh - reminds me of a lot of the trendy fabrics that are out now.

I agree with wvrdnkwmn. It's your day. Do it if you want to. I think it sounds fine but then my tendency is to go with what I want rather than what somebody else might think.

Maybe you should consider making the sashes out of spring colors, such as pink, light blue, yellow, etc.

My daughter just got married in Oct., her colors were brown, turquoise and dusty rose. It was really pretty. Use one more color as an accent color like dusty rose or light pink.

I wouldn't even use a sash. go with a bouquet of pink spring flowers with a silk brown ribbon to match dress in the flowers. Maybe find "pink pearls" as a accessory and a bridal gift.

These could me made just for your wedding party. Brown and pink are great colors. Go with what YOU want. It's your wedding and no one in a year will remember anyway. So you be Happy!

I think it would be nice to have something untraditional. When you get to be my age, weddings can be boring as they all seem alike.

rofl. I think the colors you've described will be wonderful. Do your own thing and don't worry about anyone else. You have a great idea. I'd stick with it.

I am currently a maid-of-honor in whats suppose to be a late spring, early summer wedding this upcoming year. The bride is very much liking the brown and blue idea. I think it is going to be beautiful, we are accenting alot more of the blues than browns but I see no reason why you should think that you need to change your colors. Besides traditional ideas are not commonly used these days.

I wore brown as a bridesmaid last July for a wedding. Like everyone has said above, it was a beautiful color scheme! I'd even go one step further- I think brown is the in color this new bridal season -- I'm seeing lots of chocolate brown with pastel highlights. Have a great (brown) day!

I think brown with turquoise sounds really nice. Just remember you don't have to stick to tradition. It is your big day and if that is what you like go for it. I'm sure it will be beautiful!

I am trying to decide on color combinations for my May 2013 wedding. I'm going for a classic, elegant feel to the whole affair, but would like to incorporate a spring color that would add a bit of pop. I would appreciate any suggestions.
