  • I was married in August and had my brides maids in a pretty sage green. Then I used pink and white for the flowers. In retrospect I wish I had gone with more jewel tones because that is what I really like, but the sage green was very pretty.

  • I show on some wedding show, a very elegant wedding where the bridesmaids wore black dresses. Any style black dress they choose to wear. It looked really classy and elegant.

  • I love jewel tones, but really anything goes. August is bright and sunny, so you could do something different and do yellow and orange, or go with your fav colors. A friend of mine got married in November, and each bridesmaid wore a different color, and her theme was just "fall". One wore yellow, one wore orange, one wore purple, one wore green.

  • I was thinking for August orange-y, auburn-y, maroons.. Things like that. Because it is the end of summer/almost fall I would definitely use the upcoming foliage as inspiration.

  • It helps to check out the colors of the room. I was interested in a Burgundy color, but the church had bright red carpeting. So I went with gold colored long skirt and vest, it was an fall wedding.
    My flower girls were dresses as fairies with wings.
    I love the renaissance theme with lots of flowers and ribbons with live period music. You could show up in a horse drawn carriage, have the minister dress up as a monk.
    What ever you decide, I hope it is all that you dreamed of.
