[QUOTE=PaulaV;144926]I know, it has consumed me! I think once I get past the BM dress bit I will be much better off.
Ok Jen - you asked...
So I wanted to go with orange for dresses. The walk up to the gazebo is lined with nice green grass, the water is turquoise in the background, gazebo is white.
To add a pop of colour - orange. I wanted to pick a colour I would actually wear myself, so that would be green, turquoise, orange, burgundy. Not pastel colours. My dress is ivory, more on the yellowish side, so I need warm colour.
All the oranges I am finding are too 'fall' like. Not beachy to me.
My MOH and I have been everywhere in Columbus. When we find something online we like, they don't have it in the store, or not the right sizes online (ex: Nordstrom).
So this is where my dream picked up. I have two BMs that are currently pregnant.
One due end of Sept, the other mid-October. One has an idea what size she will be as it is her 3rd child, the other, her first child - no idea. In real life, the place where the dresses are I liked the best said the latest we should order is Sept 13th. We would get them 4 wks before we leave for Mexico and have time for alterations. Oh, did I mention two of the girls are in Mexico and I have to ship them to them and they can get them altered there? So I ordered them in my dream
and they came back too small and green! ~So I yell, "Just buy orange dresses! I don't care what they look like, just buy orange dresses!"
Ugh! This green really would be pretty on all of them, but I want a colour other
than what is already in the surroundings. It shouldn't be this hard... and I haven't been procrastinating... This weekend, MUST decide ... this is it. I don't want to dream about it again.
Aren't you glad you asked?
Oh, here is the colour that is *currently* in the lead.
A bit darker than I had in mind, but it is beautiful:

I agree, the orange would be a great contrast and those dresses are GORGEOUS!!! Definitely go with it. And if green dresses show up, it's ok - but don't worry, that won't happen. What a funny story!!!
