A few weeks ago I found this pictures in a goggle search and fell in love with the color scheme of the flowers (the blue/purple flowers really pop) Now I’m not sure which David’s Bridal Bridesmaid or Best Man color it would go best with. I am choosing between Persimmon (which is similar to the color the Bridesmaid or Best Man are wearing in the pictures) and Apple Red.
Also, if anyone has pictures of dresses in the persimmon color I would love to see them. The color of the dresses in the picture is so similar to Persimmon I’m wondering if they are in fact David’s Bridal Dresses. If they are I would probably pick that color since the color in the picture is more rusty (I Love it) then what you see on the DB website.
Let me know your thoughts!

Ohhh, I like both colors! And each lend itself to the time of year you’re going to get married. Honestly, I don’t think you can go wrong with either.

I should have mentioned that my ceremony will most likely be in an old theatre. The colors in the theater are primarily red and gold. That’s why I originally switched from Persimmon to Apple red. I was worried that Persimmon would clash with the red. However, I suppose if I have red in the flowers it would tie it all together.

I’m partial to the persimmon even if there is red in the theater. It has kind of an old world vibe to it, where apple in person (at the store) is a BOLD bright red. I actually think that might clash a lot more than this.
I may be alone in thinking this, but the persimmon to me is a more ‘wearable’ color that flatters skin tone (as shown above) wheres apple can wash out some ladies. Everyone seems to look good in a different shade of red! Ever tried to find the perfect red lipstick? 😉

I would go with Apple Red unless you are pulling in more of the red/orange tones into your wedding. To me persimmon is just that, a mix between red and orange.
In the end, choose the color that you like best whether or not it will clash with the theatre. I doubt anyone will say, “oh my, those dresses clash with the drapery! Bless her heart…”

I think the persimmon would totally complement your colors with your flower tie-in. My Bridesmaid or Best Man color is Spice (from Alfred Angelo) and is very close to Persimmon. It is a very wearable color and looks great in person!

I am using David’s Bridal apple red for my November wedding. I already had a color picked out, and when we went to pick out the Maid/Matron of Honor dress, the sample she was trying on was apple red and i fell in love with the dress and the color. Here is a picture of my future step-daughter in the dress…she is my Maid/Matron of Honor (future step-son is Bridesmaid or Best Man too).

This is a persimmon dress is real life, that I wore this past November. It’s more pink than red, IMO. DB Cognac would be a better “spice” color.

As an add-on to my pp, I’d suggest actually going to DB and looking at the colors. They show up very differently in the store than on the website! Swatches are only $1 a piece too 🙂

when dealing with persimmion it all depends on what fabric u choose. I say this because my bridesmaids have persimmon dresses that are satin and they have a glossy/metalic look to them. To me, they look much better in satin as the other fabrics tend to dull the color. My only problem now is I changed my fall 2011 wedding to a dec 2012 wedding and im stuck with those dresses! If I would not have rushed to get this wedding pulled off in the beginning I could have thought out my scheme better. I love the persimmon color but I seem to have a time tying it into a winter wedding! I’m thinking of adding aqua blue or a deep purple.
If my bridesmaids would not have gotten their dresses already I would have loved a spring wedding with yellow and navy blue! Ahhh Im kicking myself now!
I love the dark reds with persimmon but it seems to fallish for winter.
I tell ya I have a big old mess. I already bought 100 ivory chair covers that were suppose to go with my persimmon and chocolate wedding! Geesh can it get any worse?
