    I just looked at Serene colored dresses at davids and im kinda confused why you think they cant wear that again but they could navy

    Edit- I just saw you said AS wearable. Personally I would wear a color like Serene more then i would navy. But I wouldnt pick out a dress thinking that they could wear it again because who really wears dresses more then once. I know I NEVER do.

    How many bridesmaids do you have? You could put them in both colors–I think it would look fine. For me personally, I would rather have the Serene as well, but both colors are lovely and wearable. Another option would be to ask the bridesmaids which they like more–if you’re really concerned about them being able to wear it again.

    I chose the navy only because if you are putting the men in navy suits (you didn’t say) I think that looks really sharp together.

    I love your original idea… The navy with bright pink just seems to pop for me!

    Go see them in person. The serene looks like it borders on a pale teal on my monitor. I voted for navy anyway because that is my color scheme only with peachier pinks.

    I adore the look of navy and bright pink.  It’s fun, maybe a little unexpected, and definitely complements your yacht club venue.  Also, navy is a universal flatterer, meaning it looks great on everyone (of course, not everyone may LIKE wearing it, but it looks good on pretty much everybody).  I say, stick with your first palette!

    I voted Navy. It’s prettier IMO and Navy looks good on all skin tones, while Serene could wash some of your girls out.

    I picked navy, but only because my colors are navy, blush pink, and ivory! The serene is nice too, but I would warn that it might be harder to find fabrics and accessories in that same shade.

    The navy, pink, ivory works better to me because you would have one pop of color with two neutrals.  The serene color, while pretty, seems like it would compete with the pink rather than complement it.
