Your sash is a teal/sky-blue-ish color on your white dress. Picture your bridesmaids maybe wearing teal with white sashes…hmmm? I think it’s pretty! In case you were wondering what it would look like:

So your dress has turquois from Da Vinci. But you love the dresses at David’s Bridal. However the turquois at David’s Bridal is off from Da Vinci? No biggie!
Why not have your girls wear headbands or jewelry in the color that matches best to the sash on your wedding dress?
For example, take your swatch to a craft store, find turquois ribbon that is very similar, and wrap & glue onto headbands for your girls to wear along with their black dresses?
Or, take that same ribbon and have them use that as the sash! Still want to bring in more turquoise? Have your girls wear jewelry that matches.
There are several ways to bring in that color, and get it pretty close, without having to purchase it at a bridal store.

While browsing one of my new favorite blogs, The Bride’s Cafe, I stumbled across these oh-so-pretty pictures of hers!
Check out the colors, the pinks, oranges, and yellows truly do work so well with the turquoise accents! The bridesmaids wore orange dresses with pink sashes, and the flower girls wore dresses in turquoise.
The perfect inspiration!

I wish I would have known about this place back when we planned our wedding!
So many “looks“ you could give your bridesmaids. Whether it’s turquoise/teal dresses, pink & orange, or black and pink, the possibilities are endless! Here are a few ideas.
Keep in mind, with bridesmaids, not everyone has the same body shape, height, or skin tone. Try to pick dresses that will not only compliment your dress, but also ones that will compliment your girls.
Also think about this when you have the bridesmaids get their shoes…not everyone has the same feet. Some have wide feet, some have narrow…some have a high arched foot, some have flat. Best solution? Have your girls pick their own shoes, as long as they’re all the same color.
