My bridesmaids picked this dress (Alfred Angelo 6129SN) and I offered them the choice of purchasing it in black with a blue sash or buying it in blue (cobalt), but they said for me to pick. We have three bridesmaids and groomsmen (each) and I can’t decide. I want them to be able to wear it again (I know, cliche, but its a satin LBD, so they could) but I also want some color. I am not sure the sash looks right (and my bad Paint mashup doesn’t help.) Opinions appreciated.

I’d prefer the solid black dress with the sash optional.

I feel like I’d like the sash better if it was thicker

I honestly have never worn a bridemaids dress ever again except on the day of the wedding, so I would pick which ever one you like better!

Honestly, I know you have the best intentions, but I think any dress that is a “bridesmaid” dress isn’t re-wearable, no matter the color. To me, it still looks look a bridesmaid dress, even in black. If you really want to go the little black dress route, I’d look at department stores for little black dresses that don’t have the bridesmaid look to them.
That being said, I like the blue better anyways! Especially for a July wedding, I think black is a bit dark for a summer wedding.

I think black is a more flattering color, and the blue seems a bit strong. Love the sash idea!
What a nice set of bridesmaids to not be picky over it! 🙂
