I’m keen to get pashminas for myself and my two bridesmaids as the big day is right at the end of summer so by the laws of Melbourne weather, we’re either going to get a beautiful mid 20s day… or it could be quite chilly! This is my inspiration board which gives an idea of colours, flowers etc (although the guys will be in charcoal). Whilst I’m assuming the guests will not see the pashminas and it’s debatable whether they’ll end up in photos… I still want them to fit in in case they do get caught on film! (digital? heh)
Bridesmaids are wearing Navy… so should their pashmina’s be (a) light blue, (b) light pink (c) silver???
I’ve seen these on Etsy… the colour is described as “grey/silver”. They look super cute… but do they look at tad lavendar to anyone? What do you think of them?

Damn it, I typed my reply and lost it… what I was saying is… I think the pasminas are a lovely idea. I think the fact that they look slightly lavendar is just a trick of the eye – if you put your hand over the label and just look at the pashmina (or scroll your screen so that the label is hidden) the pashminas look grey/silver. I think the colour is being picked up by the purple blooms on the label.
As for which colours would go best, it really depends what look you’re going for. I’ve just done a google search for navy dresses with pashminas and I don’t personally like the look of the light blue with the navy, because it looks too harsh on the eyes. I do however really like white with the blue, but i see that’s not an option. If they are cheap enough, maybe it would be worth buying one of each of the potential colours and put them up against the dress? I’ve had many pashminas in the past and the textures, weights, finishes all vary so much that if you buy online you don’t know what you’re getting until it arrives. I’ve had super soft “matte” type ones, and I’ve had thinner ones with more of a sheen.
I 100% missed that pink was an option!!! PINK, of course. Blush, navy, & gold are my colours and I think navy and pink are beautiful together. My Groom is wearing a navy suit with pink shirt.

Is silver one your colors? If so, I think that looks really nice with the navy!

@MrsBee2B: Wow, nice work, thanks! And you know what, I think you’re right about the labels throwing the colour off, when I scroll it down so all I see is my inspiration board and the bottom part of pashmina, it doesnt look so bad.
@lorakath: No it’s not… but I’d be worried that if we went with pink, the shade wouldn’t be right … so I was thinking something more neutral … and since all our accessories will be silver I thought that was the best choice. What do you think?
