10 Colors Your Bridesmaids Don't Want to Wear

Poo Green

There are so many gorgeous shades of green to choose from, so why do brides insist on selecting this one? A most unfortunate cross between brown and green, this color should be permanently relegated to Yoda costumes and split-pea soup.

Your bride probably thought it would be a nice shade since it was described as cypress or forest moss. Of course, some brides unwittingly select this shade based on a photo, only to be appalled once the final product is delivered.

And this brings me to yet another piece of unsolicited, but valuable advice: Insist on seeing a swatch or, better yet, an entire dress in the color before placing any orders.
