Alright dear Bees with colored wedding gowns, I need your help. I’m planning on wearing a red wedding gown and a black reception dress but I have no idea what color(s) the bridesmaids’ dresses should be.
I’m having a Maid of Honour and two bridesmaids. I really the concept of mismatched dresses and they’ve all agreed to wearing 50’s style swing dresses. The color scheme, subject to change if necessary, is black, silver, gold, bronze and white with maybe color accents insipred by gemstone colors like emeralds, rubies, sapphires, etc.
So if you could please give me any suggestions on what the colors should be and/or share what color(s) your bridesmaids’ dresses are – and feel free to include pics of the dresses and your own colored wedding gown – so I can get a better idea of what colors would work well together, I’d really appreciate it.

Here are my ceremony & reception dresses, respectively:
My bridesmaids will be in purple. I told them “wear any dress that’s purple.” So far what they’re coming up with is awesome!!
For you, I’d say gold or cream/ivory for BM dresses. 🙂

@Bebealways: Ooh I can’t wait to see your bridal party photos if you do end up posting them on here! And I think I’ve said this before but I absolutely adore your dresses especially the corset top on your ceremony dress.
Ok noting down gold or cream/ivory

Here is mine! I just have my sister and my brother standing up with me. My sister says she will be wearing silver and brother will be in a grey suit. I think you can’t go wrong with a neutral color. But if you go for color-color, AWESOME!!

I am wearing a blush/almond colored gown. My MOH will be wearing aqua and my BMs will be wearing a bright pink. We will be having a beach wedding.

@scubagal: That sounds like a good combination
@Selcier: LOVE your dress! I was toying with grey or silver for their dresses. But then I’ve also been thinking about blue.
