You should stay out of it and let them wear whatever they want. They’re adults and they aren’t in the wedding party. Let them wear what makes them feel attractive and confident.

@cbartlett37:  Let them wear whatever they want, the bride does not get to dictate to her parents what they can wear, just like your parents don’t get to dictate what you should wear.

Sorry they are not your bridesmaids or groomsmen. They choose their own attire.

@cbartlett37:  If one comes in something less than flattering, so be it. She’s an adult and the only person who will look bad is her. Setting a color doesn’t mean she won’t choose an unflattering dress anyway. When they ask, tell them to choose what they want.

@cbartlett37:  How about a lighter pink tone that would compliment the navy and fushia?

I would just show them your dress and wedding colours and let them choose what they want to wear. They are likely to pick somethink on there own that will work well with your dress and wedding colour.

I would pick colours that are flattering for them and work with your colour scheme. You could go with soft metallics (like a champagne gold, charcoal/silver) or variations of your wedding colours (different shades of blue, blush, dusty rose). Go with what suits their colouring and style.

A lot of colors would go with that combination. My bridesmaids are wearing navy and the guys are wearing grey, I’d prefer my FMIL didn’t wear black but I haven’t had the courage to tell her.
