    @rebelsquest:  Slate, absolutely. I think the colours look great together and having bridesmaids in slate also lets you, the bride, stand out more, IMO 🙂 

    Btw, you could use silver as your accent colour, I think that would look lovely.

    I’m no help, I love both. My girls are wearing that color blue with silver accessories, but idk how I feel about a silver dress. I do think the slate would be more universally flattering though

    @rebelsquest:  I agree with PP’s about slate! I think the darker color is going to be more flattering on people and it’ll make your dress look brighter. 

    P.S. yay for thedaintyard! That’s who we ordered from! 🙂

    I am in the minority here, but I prefer the silver color for your bridesmaids. I think that with this choice you will stand out more.

    I really like the slate, but the GM could get slate or charcoal suits. If they wear the dark gray, have the ladies wear the silver.

    The slate color is very similar to what my girls are wearing so I picked that one. I think it is so pretty.

    Slate! I agree that it’s more flattering, makes your dress look extra bright, and they’ll get more re-wear out of it.

    Slate for sure, it really makes your dress POP.

    I like the slate dress. You could put the GM in black or a dark gray.

    I’m going against the grain here – I prefer the silver. Generally in wedding photos the white of the bride’s dress gives a lift, I’d be worried that if the entire wedding party is in dark clothing the overall effect will be very dark. 

    I’m having a dark purply-pink colour dress, and planning on my bridesmaids being in white.
