What color should my girls wear if I want sunflowers?
I really like sunflowers and I want the girls to gold them and me to hold some. What is a good color for their dresses to be?

i'm using both red roses & sunflowers and my bridesmaid dresses are red. the yellow of the sunflowers pops really good against the red! you definatly want that contrast!

Blues, especially medium and dark blues look really good against the yellow :)

I like either of the above ideas with blue or red. As long as you pick something vibrant to stand up to the yellow of the flowers it'll look great! You could have your maids wear red, blue, brown, or even a vibrant pink/fushia color. What you might want to do if find a swatch of fabric or something that is similar to the yellow of sunflowers and go to a David's bridal or other bridal shops and look to see what colors go well with the yellow. That way you can get a feel and vision. :)

Chocolate browns look amazing with sunflowers! It brings out the center of the flowers and really is flattering on all body types, as well as is a good color for the girls to reuse beyond the wedding day. Hope this helps and good luck!!!

I agree with Angel and in fact that was the suggestion that I was going to make. Chocolate or even a burnt orange would look great.

I love any shade of blue, especially turquoise! And if you were looking for something more muted I think champagne would be amazing. Can't wait to see it come together!

I would say red or yellow, or maybe you could do orange

I was gonna say a royal blue or chocolate, but those have both been pretty much covered :)

I'm going with a burgundy/wine color (variation on red). You can check out the inspiration board which has pictures of sunflowers and the color of the BM dress if you're curious about the combo.

I am having yellow flowers too. My girls are wearing a bright blue, like a cobalt blue. It is looking nice!
