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's your day. You can do whatever you want! Good luck
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. I think it sounds fine but then my tendency is to go with what I want rather than what somebody else might think.
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.
Thank you guys so much you had some great ideas! This helps so much.
I think brown and pink look very nice together.
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. These could me made just for your wedding party. Brown and pink are great colors. Go with what YOU want. It's your wedding and no one in a year will remember anyway. So you be Happy!
My cousin in Houston wedding was pink and brown, it was beautiful. It's yours and groom's wedding.Congratulations!
How about if they wear circlets of flowers in their hair?
My daughter is planning a Feb. wedding, with the dress colors chocolate with a baby blue ribbon as the raised waistband.
I am trying to decide on color combinations for my May 2013 wedding. I'm going for a classic, elegant feel to the whole affair, but would like to incorporate a spring color that would add a bit of pop. I would appreciate any suggestions.
How can I make these colors work for my wedding, purple, blue, orange, and cream?
