Im currently looking for bridesmaids dresses for 7 of my girls. The theme is rustic. My colors are gray and yellow. The groomsmen plan to wear gray (not sure dark or light) I wanted my girls to wear yellow (any style) so they wouldn’t blend in with all the gray suits. We’ve been to David’s Bridal and they have 2 yellows. Canary (Light) and Sunbeam (bright). Though I love the color of sunbeam coz of the vibrant color I think it’ll outshine my dress and stand out too much. Where the canary meshes well with the rustic theme and subtle. However Im afraid the light yellow will not sure up nicely in pictures, that it would almost look washed out. Need some advice out there! 😀

tiramai: Firstly, disabuse yourself of the notion that anything is going to outshine the bride. You will be the only one wearing a big white (or ivory, blush etc) dress.

tiramai: Hey, I love yellow with grey. As you’ve got a rustic theme I don’t think the stronger yellow would suit, it does also depend on the material.

I went with sunbeam, I went back and forth with it but in the end I thought canary was a little dull for my likings.

jessicalaneee: I think I’m running into the a same dilemma as you. The store didn’t really have the colors in many styles so it was hard to picture. I love how the yellow looks on your bridesmaids! It’s hard make a decision lol

We did light grey/silver dresses with dark grey tuxes (the vera wang from men’s warehouse). Yellow can be hard to wear for a lot of people it seems.

My colors are dark purple and bright yellow. I thought it would be really fun, summery, and different to have bright sunbeam yellow dresses, but all of my bridesmaids kind of freaked out about it. Granted, they all have more pale skin and it didn’t work too well for them. We ended up going with plum dresses with bright yellow bouquets. I like what we picked, but the yellow dresses are SO fun! Especially for a summer wedding.

tiramai: I got lucky after a few weeks and they had a sunbeam yellow in the dress I wanted them to wear, and instantly I was sold.
