I’m planning on doing black and white with a splash of green for my colors.  I want the BM’s to wear black dresses and to accent they will probaby wear a green sash along with green shoes.  I have also considered having them wear a green petti coat under their dress.

Oh.. and accents of green (or pink in your case) in their jewelry, flowers and handbags.

My wedding colors were black and white with touches of pink here and there.  But I really wanted the focus colors to be black and white.  MY BM’s wore black floorlength gowns with white pearl jewelry set in white gold and held white calla lilies.  Our wedding was an evening wedding in November, so I wanted a very simple, elegant, candlelit evening ceremony and reception.

The touches of pink that I added into the mix were mostly in the stationary and little touches here and there at my reception.

Good Luck and Happy Planning!

I have seen gorgeous weddings done with black bridesmaids dresses. Adding in a pop of color on the sash, bouquets, broaches, etc. makes for a very pretty wedding party. Good luck with your planning!!

My colors are green, black and white, and my gilrs are all wearing floor length black dresses! First I don’t think you need to worry about it looking colorless, black is elegant and classic and stands out against any backdrop!!! Second, if you do want something "extra" as far as color, pick ONE color, such as your pink and keep everything very monochromatic it will make the black pop! i.e. All pink flowers, pink accesories, pink napkins or chair covers or sashes.

My colors are black, turquoise, and pool with pops of bright white.  I totally think doing pink sashes and flowers will look great, but I would still have them do black shoes

Our colors are black, ivory, champagne, and soft pink. I plan on incorporating the pink mostly in the flowers, though possibly on some things like ink in the programs or menus, or the table cards.. I’m keeping the girls only in black rather than adding sashes so the pink will really only be a "touch" of pink.. 

Oh, you could also throw it in by your linens, possibly bows on chairs, or napkins..

The last wedding I went to the bridesmaids were in black and their flowers were pink just to add some color.  You could do something like that.

Mine are wearing black and matron of honor is in apple red. Their flowers are calla lilies and underneath them is a collar of green orchids. We are going with a damask theme with runners on black table linens and filling up cylinder vases with red water and floating candles with votive’s around it. We are trying to keep everything pretty classic.

My girls are wearing black dresses and instead of carrying flowers down the aisle, I had custom cluthes made (through a vendor on etsy.com). The clutches have various colors on them, pink, orange, green. My florist is make bright pink corsages that we will attach to the clutches.

Since my colors are actually fushcia, orange, and black, I have made sure that I use fushcia and orange in my decorations (paper lanterns, favor wrapping, menus, centerpieces, etc.)

Black is very chic and it is your wedding…. do whatever you want to do!
