I’m having a hard time deciding between J.Crew’s Graphite and Frosted Citrus for my bridesmaids’ dresses. I know the graphite color looks great, but I haven’t been able to find any real wedding photos with the frosted citrus. I really would like to see the dress in a wedding party. Can anyone help?
Deciding between graphite and frosted citrus:

I love the graphite. The yellow might not look as great on everyone’s skin tone. You should add in yellow accessories and flowers!

The frosted citrus color is very pretty, but I find that yellow is a color that’s very difficult for people Not everyone looks good in it–or in any one particular shade. I, for example, pretty much can’t wear it at all–I look like I have jaundice or something. I’d go with the graphite, if it were me.

I also think the graphite is more likely to be a flattering shade for all skin tones. It would look great with yellow flowers, too–my friend just used that color scheme and it looked beautiful. The graphite dress is also something that people would be much more likely to wear again after the wedding, too.

Thanks for the responses! Yellow was my original plan but then I found the grey and really love it. The yellow looks better in person than online, but with 7 bridesmaids I’m afraid it might be too much.
I’ve found pics of weddings in the graphite but none with the yellow… maybe for a reason!Plus I think my flowers for the grey vs yellow are much prettier and will really pop.
Thanks again! I just needed some reassurance because I tried to feel out my bridesmaids and they were leaning towards the yellow. I’m not great at finalizing.
No yellow tie… but this is what we’re working with:

I don’t know the theme of your wedding, but I actually think the graphite and citrus would look really pretty together! Maybe some girls could wear one, some the other?
