I think it’ll work just fine.

Are you going to make the guys wear light gold shirts under the grey suits? I think that might look a little odd personally…

My only other concern would be that grey dress matching the grey suits. I’m almost positive my MoH had that same dress but with cap sleeves, and it’s definitely more silver than grey, if you know what I mean (shimmery sort of?).

I think it will look okay. I think the gold & gray will be wonderful together. All the things I would suggest are pastels, so eek. Maybe if you add in some lighter toned flowers against the dresses?

Have you ordered fabric samples for the Alfred Sung dresses? I think I got mine from Joielle; I got several and the colours weren’t necessarily what I saw on my screen. I got a sample of that grey and it’s fairly shiny and lighter than it looks, so you might want a sample to make sure it goes with the guys’ suits.

I think the bright blue would be really pretty with a pale gold gown.

@CelticBeachBride:  Sounds like you’re prepared. I love these dresses by the way, so hopefully your bridesmaids do as well. I had originally planned to get one of the Alfred Sungs for my courthouse wedding because I figured I could get more than one wear out of it.

@CelticBeachBride:  Parasols could be fun, but hey, I like things like that! I was thinking about you earlier… or rather your question, haha. I was thinking if you decided to stray away from the blue. I think that coral, gold, & grey would look great together.

I also may have assumed you are having a beach wedding of some sort due to your screen name.

@CelticBeachBride:  I think both the two new colours would look great with the gold dress and grey suits – but if the tiffany blue/turquoise colour was your favourite, why compromise?

If there isn’t a particular reason why you have to have Alfred Sung/Dessy, Occasions bridesmaids (Lazaro/Jim Hjelm) have dresses in a turquise dupioni which might be closer to the colour you’re after. I can’t find photos of any of their dresses in that colour, but maybe it’s worth ordering swatches from them to see.

Secondly, I think the gold, grey and tiffany blue/peacock blue colour scheme is fantastic – it’s one of my favourites.
