So I need some help figuring out my wedding party (warning, its kind of a big one)
8 bridesmaids in Black JCrew short silk chiffon dresses
2 Junior bridesmaids in to knee length Eggplant chiffon dresses
3 Flower Girls thinking they will be in white dresses to match my white gown
My hubby-to-be wants to wear Grey suits for him and his 6 groomsmen
my questions are:
what color shoes do bridemaids wear? I wanted nude but was told “thats too much colors going on in the whole party”
should the flower girls have a colored sash? if so, what color? (eggplant or black?) what color shoes do they wear?
what color shoes do junior bridesmaids wear?
what color vest do groom and groomsmen wear?
how should I do my flowers? my bridesmaids? and my groom and groomsmens boutonnieres?
Wedding is September 1st

@niftychic4: Pics please of the dresses!
Also! Are your colors eggplant, grey, and black?
“I wanted nude but was told “thats too much colors going on in the whole party””
Whoever told you that, don’t listen to them. This is YOUR day. You are the final decision of what looks good. Nude with black dresses could totally work.
Also what color are your shoes?

Black dresses with nude pumps look great.

I would have all the girls wear black shoes with the exception of the flower girls. They should wear white shoes. I would not put a sash on the flower girl dresses because I think it would be too much going on. Groomsmen should wear black shoes as well.
For our bridal party, the groom will wear a white vest and the groomsmen will all wear black vests. That’s one way to do it. Otherwise, the groomsmen could wear eggplant vests. You definitely don’t want there to be too many color options. But I don’t think the women wearing nude pumps is going to be too much if you really like that.
For flowers, do you have any other wedding colors? That’d be a good place to tie it all together. If not, then I’d probably stick with white and ivory flowers.

I would put all bridesmaids and junior BMs in nude shoes, with the flower girls in white shoes and eggplant sashes.
