I really want to find floor-length bridesmaid dresses that are a very dark pewter/charcoal/slate gray color — I wanted the dresses to be black, but I think it’s just a bit too severe for my Vintage May wedding, so I’m looking for a dark pewter color. I think it will blend well with the tuxedos in fotos and be flattering on my bridesmaids. The problem is that I’m having trouble finding a good, long dress that’s available in this color — seems like everything either is short, or is the paler silver color. Has anyone found any good designers that use this color? Any other tips?

I found my BM dresses in pewter at David’s Bridal. They had quite a few floor length gowns. Anything that is available in their 42 color selection comes in pewter.

Alfred Angelo has a color called “charcoal.” Check it out to see if it is dark enough for you.
Best of luck to you!

Dessy/Alfred Sung has a dark charcoal that my girls all wore. It was a bit shinier than I expected but still darker than silver, and went well with the black tuxes.

Pricilla of Boston has some of the deepest grey I have seen out there if that is what you are looking for. Dessy has all kinds of matching accessories like guys vests and ties, flowergirl dresses and shoes and hair accessories. I have grey bridesmaids dresses in my wedding and word to the wise greys are near impossible to match. I kind of wish I had gone with Dessy just to simplify things!

I suggest checking out Bari Jay dresses, that’s what I’m going with…except my bridesmaids are going to order them off of netbride to get them a little cheaper 🙂

Try looking into Dessy.com. They have a fabulous pewter color. That’s what I’m going with 🙂

Lazaro has a gorgeous steel grey. Darkest I’ve seen and I personally would want to wear any of those dresses.

I just picked out my BM dresses from Priscilla of Boston- they are dark slate color.
Bonus- Priscilla’s has now posted all of their prices online so you can see if some of the options are within your budget 🙂 I personally found them to very reasonable for floor-length gowns.

Hi – I’m also looking for pewter david’s bridal dresses — preferably a F13277 in a size 12, but, I’d consider any david’s bridal pewter dress at this point, and, I can get the size altered. If any of your bridesmaids are looking to sell, please let me know! DB cannot get me one before June 25, 2011.
