Anyway, I decided I was going to stop discussing such issues with said people and instead just do what I want. After all, if my wedding ends up looking like a circus I'll have no one to blame but myself! Don't get me wrong, I don't want it to look like the rainbow threw up all over our wedding, but I do want to use things like the flowers, the ladies dresses, the guys ties, the favor packaging etc, to add color to an otherwise white and natural backdrop.
So here are the swatches from the bridesmaids dresses and the colors that I will be incorporating into the wedding
And here are the ladies dresses by Mori Lee (in the order that they will be standing). The colors are much darker in the images than the chiffon is in real life:

My maid of honor will wear the raspberry colored dress, her sister and my first bridesmaid will wear the tiffany blue dress, my cousin the turquoise dress, and my lil' sister a tiffany blue dress as well. I picture the bridal party holding pretty bouquets of all white flowers to contrast the dresses and my bouquet being a piece of multicolored gorgeousness!
The invitations will include the tiffany blue against some neutral colors as will the favor packing, the groomsmen's ties will reflect the ladies dresses, and the flowers in the centerpieces will be colorful (more to come on these all soon).
So what do you gals think? Do you think I've lost my mind?
