So I have decided on my bridesmaid dress style, but am struggling with the color since I haven’t set my wedding colors yet. I will probably use a lot of white colored flowers as a base either way (e.g., peonies, roses, hydrangea) and then decide on accent colors based on the dress.
Here is the dress (it comes in a few styles so just focus on the color, not the various styles). My BMs like them all but there isn’t a common consensus on which color we should go with, so I’d love some unbiased opinions. Please let me know which of these colors you like best! The pictures are mostly pics I found on the internet, hopefully people don’t mind that I am posting them …
Light Grey (couldn’t find a wedding pic of this colour and this probably isn’t a style my girls would pick, but just to show you the color):

All of these colors would be fine; I would just think about what would best suit your bridesmaids. Also, you could think about what time of day and time of year. Pink always comes off as a daytime color to me and generally spring/ summer color.

I am a fan of the navy and blush! but i might be biased because those are my colors!
Do you have a theme that your aiming for? Or a certain mood youre trying to set?!
Maybe a certain color would look great more than the others in your venues?!
I also like the charcoal! Haha i am no help! … I rethink.
I voted blue! (and i love that style!)

I like the blue but, just like the PP, I may be biased because it is one of my colors (going with a sapphire shade).

@Zusie: I totally agree with you, and that’s what I was planning to do – largely leave it up to my BMs based on what looked best on them. But there is 5 of them and they are all very different girls, so different dress colors look slightly more flattering on different girls (although they all look good in all of them). They all are fine with any of these colors but they all have different favorites.
As for time of day and year – we are getting married in the summertime. Our ceremony will be in a beautiful old church in the daytime and the reception will be in a modern, urban-chic kind of venue in the evening (5:30pm-2am) so we will have both daytime and nighttime aspects!

@tink1983: I chose the Charcoal based on the timing of your ceremony and reception. I think its a great tone!

I am inbetween the first two colors ( gray/blue ) myself! I love both! Depends on their skin color/time of year I suppose!

Thanks everyone for your replies so far! Quick question – do you think that, since it is a summer wedding, the charcoal is too dark? I know that was a concern that one of my BMs brought up …

I think the charcoal with lighter colors would be really pretty! Not too dark as long as you have lots of whites, etc.

I love the idea of the charcoal and think it would give you room to play with your color palette! Definitely not too dark!

I actually like the light grey!

I loved these dresses so much that I tried to find them on the internet (are they Amsale? Haha, I hope you don’t mind me creeping your dresses!) If so, I found some more pictures of the charcoal and it does indeed look darker in some lighting. Just a thought in case you were worried about it being too dark. Still beautiful though. My favorites are blush, then charcoal!

i first had a reaction to the charcoal, but i think the blue would be best for a summer wedding. it’s colorful and warm without being too bright and obnoxious.

Depends on the kind of feel that you’re going for. I really like the pink, or the light gray for Summer.
