I have been agonizing so much over my BM dresses. My dress was bing-bang found it, done. But I feel so guilty about forcing my friends to buy and wear a dress that they’d probably hate since our colors are baby blue and pale lavender 😛
Then it hit me! GRAY. The perfect color to round out our pallette, and the solution for the menswear too! I can give them blue or lavender sashes for that pop of color, but then they can take it off and have totally re-wearable gray dress!
What do you think guys? is this a better idea?

@Butterbee: GREAT solution, my best friend had grey bridemaids dresses with her yellow (there was also no way she was putting them in yellow) and it looked amazing!!! Post pics when you find the dresses!!!

I think gray is a great idea, pastel/light colors are beautiful for decor/flowers but I don’t think your BM’s would appreciate wearing them. I’m sure they’ll look great with the sashes!

@Butterbee: Grey is definitely great. It’s a very good neutral. I love some of the grey, navy, and yellow color schemes. Anyway, with your other colors, have you considered having your BM wear cream colored dresses? I see that you’re getting married in the Spring I think that would just be beautiful

I did charcoal/pewter charmeuse w/ dried lavender bouquets. I think it was perfect. No worries about clashing with the venue. No asking my friends to wear a color that ONLY appears in bridesmaid dresses (27 dresses?!)

I think your idea sounds wonderful! I would definately be happy with your choice if I was a BM.

SUPER into this idea! I picked grey for my BM dresses too; one of them will be 9 months pregnant at the wedding so grey is the perfect color that everyone can find a dress in.

Gray dresses and tops are soooo in right now. LOVE the idea of a colored sash to make them a little more unique though!
