Hi All, I'm having a bit of silly moment. I'm trying to pick the colour for my bridesmaids. I really love brown suits for the groomsmen so its needs to complement that. At the moment I stuck on Teal. But I'm a huge Matthew McConaghy fan and recently re-watched The Wedding Planner. There is a scene in it where Jennifer Lopez is telling him that his wife to be has picked Teal for her bridesmaids and that this is a sign that the marriage will only last a few days. :eek I know that my marriage will last a lot longer than that (well fingers crossed) but I cant get it out of my head. I really want teal but I keep thinking of this scene. :-8 Any suggestions??????????? Or indeed any suggestions for colours that go well with brown suits?????????????

Hi jdss, With brown you could have baby pink baby blue any shade of green orange cream (though prob not :eek ) soft yellow What time of year are you getting married, I would let that influence your decision a bit too. x

I am going for a coral colour - half way between pink & peach, would complement brown perfectly/
