Moved wedding date!

We decided to move the wedding date to September 18, 2010. For a few different reasons. My wedding dress will go with the whole fall theme and I wont have to stress over the whole dark gothy feel and trying to achieve it. We are going with a more New England fall type theme wedding. So, Im asking you wonderful ladies, what colors would you recommend for my bridesmaids?

    Brown! :)   Check out my bio. My BMs loved their dresses. We tried Cranberry, but it is tough to get exact color matches unless your BMs all wear the same dress.

    I love the idea of brown or black with your red(ish) dress.

    Agreed on brown.  It needs to be a rich chocolate brown though, not anything lighter.  A caramel/gold/beige color could be very pretty too, but could look weird on certain complexions.

    For whatever reason, a lot of my inspiration pictures (non-matching BMs) are in beautiful fall colors!  Here are a few:[img]http://i907.photobucket.com/albums/ac271/lafemmerousse/kane_carpenter1.jpg[/img]

    With your red dress, I would do pewter or gray. The color is really in right now, it looks good on everyone and is a great neutral (hint: BMs can wear it again). Your red dress is a fairly dark color with some cooler reds, so I am not sure brown would be good for it.

    Personally, I don't like brown with your shade of red. I like a champagne/beige color, or black too. Grey would be really different as well. Congrats on finding a better date for you!

    Oh fine, no brown. :P   I do love the idea of pewter. And of course LOVE all of the pics that LaFemme posted. I LOVE when everyone wears different colors - if it is done well.

    I definitely agree with Nunu and the rest of the girls that the pewter would be lovely against that red dress! Molly - you mean like this, right?
