Okay, so the wedding is in August and I’m bouncing between colors and dress ideas for my bridesmaides. The colors are gray and dark purple. Since my fiance and I are paying for our wedding ourselves my girls say that its okay that they go out on their own and get their favorite dress.
My first thought is to get my girls swatches of the colors and have them pick out a dress as close to one of those colors as they can get.
My second idea is to have them get a black dress of their liking and adding purple or gray to it.
AH help! I can’t decide what to do!

something to consider- It might be easier for them to find a black dress- I know dark purple isn’t always in season around springtime (which for the fashion world will be in stores soon). But I love the idea of them getting their own dress soo much!

@niicooleejean: I’m going to be in a wedding this spring and the color scheme is purple/gray as well (so pretty) and the bride asked us to find our own dresses as long as they were a dark purple, chiffon-like material and knee length. We had her approve each dress before making a final decision and just got together recently to try all of our dresses on together – it looked awesome!
That being said, black is definitely easier to find and very versatile. I don’t think you can go wrong.
