Ok so I have had a heck of a time getting my colors straight – but I am getting closer I promise!
I need some final help though. My whole purpose with the bm dresses is that the girls might possibly be able to use them again. I am down to two colors a navy and a charcoal gray. My fiance loves purple (the first purple in the middle row of colors) and I love green. I can work in my green easily so I am not worried about that aspect. Plus with the flowers and the fact that the wedding and reception both are taking place outside there will be plenty of green around.
Here is an inspiration board of our location plus what I am going for decoration wise for the reception. I’ve included the navy dress and the charcoal gray dress to help. The third picture is the picture of the flower girl dress if we decide to A. have a flower girl and B. go with the navy but this is certainly not a deciding factor.
Here is the colors I am down to but I’m not sure which to go with the Navy or the Charcoal please help!!! The wedding is June 22.

I think the Navy combo flows better together.

I like the charcoal, purple and maybe even go with a lime green! Have you thought about putting your girls in green, the guys in charcoal and letting the flowers bring in the purple? Just my thoughts…

Here’s your determining factor: if you’re set on having the girls in charcoal or navy, think about their coloring. Is there anyone on whom charcoal or navy will NOT work? Does charcoal or navy look REALLY GREAT on any of them?
Think also about the type of bouquet flowers you’re going to want. I feel like the whites and greens that you’ve pinned above are going to be awfully monochrome against a gray dress (but they could be pretty with lots of texture, I guess!). You’ll get more contrast against a navy dress with that palette. Also, pink and purple flowers may get you more of a punch of color against either charcoal or navy.
For my tastes, I think that the navy (and hopefully it’s a bright navy rather than a dull navy) would be brighter for a summer wedding. Charcoal always feels more wintry to me.
FWIW, we got married June 16 last year, and had a similar color palette — except we dressed our bridesmaids in dark purple, and had our groomsfolk in dark gray suits. You could consider this color arrangement as well, since purple looks good on lots of people.
Ultimately…I’m sure that whatever you choose will look gorgeous!
