    I looooove those flowers. I honestly can’t decide between purple and blue, but maybe you can incorporate both colours? I feel like they might get lost in the blue dress, but how about a royal blue sash on the purple dresses?

    I’m so torn! I Love those flowers but I like the purple dress more than the blue, only because I think royal blue is a bit more bright & vibrant while the purple is more understated and elegant…. BUT If you want those flowers I’d go with the blue dress probably…

    First, I’d check with your florist that you will be able to get those colored flowers during your wedding season.  Then, go from there.

    @djenah79: Oh, since you’re getting married in St. Thomas I’d definitely go with the royal blue!

    I love the purple with the flower color pick.

    @djenah79:  I say pick one color for the bridesmaids and the other color for the MOH 🙂 I was stuck between those colors too!! I went with the purple simply because I wanted to incorporate gold and I like gold with purple better than gold with blue but blue is and always has been my favorite color.

    My vote is for all one color, no matter what you choose.  I’m biased towards the blue since that’s what I did,  but they’d both look lovely!

    I think the purple is much more elegant than the other colors and goes beautifully with your inspiration flowers! In any case, I’d have just one color for everyone.

    My colors are purple and blue, but I’m having trouble with deciding how to use both colors. I’m thinking of either using purple for my bridesmaid dresses and royal blue for the MOH, or putting all of the girls in purple and putting more blue into the flowers. If you’re doing all different colors, I like the combo 2 on the bottom 🙂
