      Don't freak out yet! I have 6 months to go, and haven't ordered BM dresses. I am also going with bright colors for bouquets (mainly fuschia and orange calla lilies). I want the dress to be a shade of bright blue (aqua/tourquoise). I have BM with all different skin tones and I think this is a color that will look good on both the palest and the darkest...and look nice with the beautiful blue of the Caribbean. Right now I'm looking at Jim Hjelm dresses in chiffon...he offers a lot of different styles that you can order in the same color and fabric. I like the light feel of chiffon, and it seems a little less formal, which is what I want for an outdoor DW. I'm letting my BM choose which style works best for them. I have 7 girls...all different shapes and sizes and ages...so I knew it was going to be next to impossible to find one style that worked for everyone. So all my BM will be in the same color and fabric, but all with slighty different dresses.

      Anyway...point is...I think a brighter blue would look nice with your flowers...or possibly a light green (maybe without the orange roses).

        I would do the cranberry (it is almost fuscia but not quite) color of the ginger flowers. It will photograph incredibly. Most of your girls have brown hair and would look gorgeous in a cranberry color and I would let them choose the style just keep the color and maybe the fabric the same.

            i'm really liking the idea of lime green and hot pink right now, both of which would look great with your bouquet...

                  I think a fuschia color would look great or maybe a creamsicle color

                  I really like bright colors for pictures, they look so great in pictures

                  All your BMs are gorgeous so I think any color you pick will look great on them!!!! I think it's impossible to make everyone hapy though. That pic of the flowers looks stunning. I love those colors!!!! I'm going for those colors in flowers too I think.

                  here are some ideas (Im bored)
