Hello Brides to be!
Im currently in a dilemma. I’m very indecisive about bridesmaid dress colors. I’ve asked for my bridesmaids opinions and each of them has a different idea which is making this even more confusing.
Here’s a little info prior to voting:
Miami Wedding @ 5pm. Black Tie Affair. Venue is on the Water. We will be having pictures with the bay as our backdrop.
Colors: White, Silver, with touches of Coral & Turqoise.
I want it to be CLASSY 🙂
Here are some pictures of the dress, church, venue:

@SunshineLovin: WOW what a church and venue how beautiful.
i voted for the Light Aqua your venue and church look so soft and elegant and CLASSY ; )
i figured a light color would do the trick.

Wow everything looks beautiful! Is the venue going to be lit up blue like that? If so I would go for the coral for contrast. I am considering the same wedding colors. I liked the dusty shale of the jcrew dresses but people have me all confused about it not popping against and ocean backdrop. Whatever color you chose I think it will be beautiful!

oh my word… that venue is my dream venue, no joke – can you tell me what your venue is and if you don’t mind, price point? seriously, i’ve been looking for a venue where the entire thing is open so you can see the water
i picked coral because i think it will be beautiful in that dress and with touches of coral and torq, i think it’ll work wonderfully!

@peonies09: I may have it lit up with that color, turqoise or coral! I was going to do a contrast as well but I have no idea what color… lol
If i choose coral dresses, then we will have turqoise lights. If we have turqoise dresses, then we will have coral lights 🙂

Personally, I think because of the black tie affair, the colours for the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses should be darker in colour (darker colours- more formal).
Would it be possible to have them in silver? Or black with a coloured sash or coloured shoes?
If you’re set on bright colours, I would go with the aqua or coral over the lighter colours, especially with the chiffon dress, which make colours look lighter to begin with.
Additional question: are you planning to have your BM’S in up-do’s and glam jewelry?

Everything looks amazing – church, venue, dress… I think you’ll have a very classy wedding.
Consdering your overall color palette, what about having a mix of the colors? All of those colors look gorgeous together, so you could have some coral and some aqua, or mix turquoise and aqua, coral and peach, etc. If your bridesmaids all have different preferences, it might appease them as well.

@SunshineLovin: beautiful church and venue. when you mentioned black tie my first thoughts for bm dresses were dark; black or charcoal. if you prefer to have the corals and turquoise colours, i would suggest the coral. it will compliment the water in the background and all of the colours will then pop.

@Ms.Meghann: Thanks for your input!!!
I personally don’t like black…it’s going to be a June wedding on the water in Miami.. so I want to go for that “Miami look”.
I am going to have them do either an updo or half up ponytail.
Here are some styles I really like:
LOVE her earrings!!

@ProfessorGirl: I thought about that but then if they are different when we take pictures with the water in the background… some will blend in and others will pop. I kind of what that to match.
I thought of doing my Maid/Matron of Honor in turqoise and BMs in coral but my Maid/Matron of Honor loves the coral lol
Love everyones input!! 🙂

@mypinkshoes: That’s what I’m thinking about the coral..that it will pop and add a lot of color.
SO excited!!! Only 291 days to go!!
