The Bridesmaids: Changing Colors

I showed you our bridesmaid inspiration boards, which included grey dresses and yellow shoes, and I had mentioned that the search for yellow flats were causing some headaches but the website shoeocean.com seemed to be the light at the end of the tunnel...except it wasn't. The shoes the girls liked didn't come in their sizes or weren't exactly what we were looking for, so the search continued.

Now that the spring line of clothing and shoes are out yellow doesn't seem to be as popular as last year but coral/peach is very "IN" right now and it just so happens to be one of the colors I'm using as accents in the wedding. So MOH K and I went shoe and cardigan shopping on Saturday for the three bridesmaids and came home with these combos from Spring & Cleo for each girl, we opted for the same color but different designs for each girl - the shoes are a lighter coral then the sweaters but paired with the grey dresses and turquoise necklaces I think they will look great....

For my sister, MOH M...

{Tab Pocket Cardigan in "Poppy" from Cleo}


{Windhoek flats in "Peach" from Spring}

For MOH K...

{Elbow Sleeve Shrug in "Poppy" from Cleo}


{Jovel flats in "Peach" from Spring}

For BM K
Now that we have that out of the way we need to focus on finding dress patterns that are similar to the dresses chosen on the inspiration boards or something completely different, so my MIL can get started sewing them!
What do you think of the switch from yellow to coral? Did you find your color scheme evolve as the planning proceeded?
