I have a question that may be a bit silly, but I would really appreciate your input! I have narrowed down my dress to two contenders, and they are both ivory/cream — not white. My bridesmaids will be wearing either light or dark gray (haven’t decided yet). Do you think this will look ok — having ivory with gray? Am I being wayyyy too nit-picky and worrying over nothing? Thanks hive!

Yes! There’s actually a JCrew wedding dress that is ivory and gray, and it’s pretty pretty. (Just for an ivory and gray looking good together reference. )

I think it will look fine. Plus remember that you’ll be holding bouquets that will bring all your colors together.

Thank you!! This is all very reassuring, and I can’t wait to check out the J Crew and Vera Wang dresses for more color reassurance, hehe. And charm bracelet — you’re absolutely right, I forget that I’ll have other things (bouquets, paper lanterns, etc,) that will tie everything together.

I definitely wouldn’t worry about it!! I think that it will look gorgeous with the two colors together, especially with your bouquets, etc! Even alone together, I love ivory and gray!

Neutrals always go together, in my book. Gray in the new neutral.

I think it will look good together. I haven’t been able to find an inspiration board with this color combo yet, but you could make one to get a better feel for the colors together. Are you doing a bolder accent color with these two neutrals?

Gray is like the new wedding color! I’ve been seeing it in so my inspirational boards! I think it’ll look great!

Grey is the current IT color. And many brides wear ivory. It will look A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.
Here’s an example from Snippet & Ink I found that has grey, and warm whites and yellows: http://snippetandink.blogspot.com/2009/03/board-362-milk-honey.html

Yup, I agree that would look lovely together!

I think this will definitely work well together. Like Kate said, I look at grey as a neutral, so it will go with anything.

My dress was ivory and my girls wore different shades of dark and light grey. It looked great and I have photographic evidence!
And… (gasp!) the guys’ shirts were white, not ivory!

Thanks everyone! I have been drooling over that Snippet and Ink inspiration board for awhile now — it really helped me pin down gray as one of my colors, and as the color for my BM dresses.
JeniRae — I LOVE your pictures! Your BM dresses are exactly the two shades of gray I’m currently deciding between, and I am using pale pink and bright pink and green as accent colors too (bouquets, lantern colors, ribbons to hang the lanterns, etc.)! Thanks so much for sharing.
I think I’m just starting to freak out because I’m thisclose to buying my wedding dress, and I am the type of person who second-guesses and obssesses over a lot of things…especially big purchases for our wedding!! Thanks for all your input and assurance!

Thanks, buttons! Here’s one more picture of the BMs, if it helps you decide! (Maybe you could do both shades of grey?)
