Can you use brown as a bridesmaid dress in March? My wedding was originally planned for October has moved to March. I liked my colors so much, I kinda wanted to keep them. So the idea was to use a brown dress with a turquoise sash, but that doesn't seem very springy. I need advice!

What if you reversed the colors? Maybe a turquoise print in a sheer fabric with a brown satin ribbon?
It depends on the brown -I think - if you go too dark it would not work, but a bit warmer lighter brown with a soft turquoise (not too jewel tone - more soft spring turquoise) would be nice I think! Fresh - reminds me of a lot of the trendy fabrics that are out now.
I agree with wvrdnkwmn. It's your day. Do it if you want to.
Maybe you should consider making the sashes out of spring colors, such as pink, light blue, yellow, etc.
My daughter just got married in Oct., her colors were brown, turquoise and dusty rose. It was really pretty. Use one more color as an accent color like dusty rose or light pink.
I wouldn't even use a sash. go with a bouquet of pink spring flowers with a silk brown ribbon to match dress in the flowers. Maybe find "pink pearls" as a accessory and a bridal gift.
I think it would be nice to have something untraditional. When you get to be my age, weddings can be boring as they all seem alike. rofl. I think the colors you've described will be wonderful. Do your own thing and don't worry about anyone else. You have a great idea. I'd stick with it.
I am currently a maid-of-honor in whats suppose to be a late spring, early summer wedding this upcoming year. The bride is very much liking the brown and blue idea.
I wore brown as a bridesmaid last July for a wedding. Like everyone has said above, it was a beautiful color scheme! I'd even go one step further- I think brown is the in color this new bridal season -- I'm seeing lots of chocolate brown with pastel highlights. Have a great (brown) day!
One of my girlfriends just did the colour scheme and it looked incredible. I was also just in one with chocolate brown dresses, floor length, with ivory sash, those were great too. Also have several dresses if your needing any.
Here in SD, I don't consider March to be that much of a spring month, no matter what the calendar says. But from evertything I have seen and read, brown with blues, or pinks are really in right now.
We are planning a March wedding, for this year. What are good color options for this month?

Congratulations! My birthday is in March and the birthstone is a beautiful aquamarine....
Spring arrives in March, why not go with a spring theme? Aquamarine,the March birthstone, is also the color of a robin's egg.
I am the bride who asked about the March wedding colors - I loved all your input, thank you so much. I thought I would update you with the decision: I have selected Ivory and Champagne with Calla Lilies. Things are moving right along and I have the dedication and encouragment of a wonderful sister who is planning it for me. I am blessed - thank you Jesus.
How about Kelly Green, Peach and Creamy White?
Kelly Green because it is a true St. Patties color, Peach because it is a nice complimenting color with Creamy White tying the two colors together.
Peony, buttercup, and celery with ivory chiffon.
I was thinking of a yellow and silver wedding, I chose yellow as I want daffodils.
I am having a March wedding and my girls are wearing gold dresses and the flowers have a vintage look, peach, pink and maroon berries.
I am getting married next March and we have decided on Ivory and Lavender. There is a plethora of lavender colored flowers in march as well as beautiful white ones as well.
I got married in March and had ice blue accents on my dress, cake and invites. I contrasted with navy blue bridesmaids and accented with silver. Flowers were all white with ice blue accents.

Yes go with the blue and silver for sure. You could also add dark blue and white as well but whatever you do don't go with red. It wouldn't fit the theme.You could have all white flowers (eg. white poinsettas) icicle lights in clear and blue snowflake ornaments and silver garland. Hope this helps. Cheers. (08/06/2005)
What about bold, bright green, white and silver? Not Christmas green or Kelly green, more of a spring green, hint of lime, that type of green. Spring does begin in March, though I realize that spring in the Dakotas is slow to come. But spring green combined with silver and white would remind people of the new growth still hidden under the snow. Plus it would be unique and happy. (08/08/2005)
Go with whatever colors you like. My daughter just got married 2 weeks ago. She chose a deep deep red for her bridesmaids to wear. She went with white roses for the girls to carry and she carried a bouquet of deep red roses. It was an outdoor wedding. Beautiful! She used white toille and mini lights inside it and also accented with silver throughout the ceremony and reception area.
The colors you choose you must like and be happy with. Any color will be fine. (08/19/2005)
