    No one really looks good in canary, so I am going with the blue!

    For some reason I’ve never been a big fan of black and blue together, so I would go with the canary. I’m getting married in October and my girls will be wearing a taffeta Bill Levkoff dress in canary and I think it will look GREAT on the girls. I’m a little biased on the yellow though 🙂 Our girls will be wearing yellow dresses and guys gray tuxes. Hope this was a little helpful!

    We’re doing navy as well but with brown tuxes.  I’ve seen navy with black and it looks just fine.  Yellow is more difficult to pull off for some skin tones – I would ask your bridesmaids (I have one that would absolutely look terrible in yellow).  I love yellow myself but it’s just not a color that everyone can pull off.

    Navy is a much better color on the vast majority of people compared to yellow.  I vote navy!

    Man, it sounds like I lucked out. Yellow looks great on all of my girls!

    Navy is much more flattering! We’re doing Navy dresses with yellow flowers. Our guys are wearing charcoal grey suits or tuxedos (haven’t decided yet) to combat the whole black/blue issue. Although, there are many threads about the black/navy debate and overall, people seem to like it. It really doesn’t look bad, IMO.

    As much as I love the canary color, I think you’d be better off with navy if it flatters the majority of your girls. Yellow is a hard color for many women to pull off. Navy and black will look fine together, btw. 🙂

    My girls wore “lemon”, I think yellow is perfect for June!  Is it the most flattering?  No, probably not.  But its a bridesmaid dress.

    @EleanorRigby: although many people think Navy looks better, it’s ultimately YOUR wedding so pick what makes you happy! Bridesmaids are going to find ways to complain haha. You can’t please everyone but you can please YOU!

    I don’t think navy is too dark for an outdoor summer wedding. I was in a wedding were half the girls wore tangerine and half wore watermelon. the bride picked who wore what color. I love watermelon, but I got stuck in tangerine… I looked like an umpalumpa, but I didn’t complain and neither did any of the other girls.

    I agree that yellow is not a flattering color on (almost) anyone. I don’t think the black + blue is a problem either. I think navy would be pretty, maybe with yellow flowers, yellow sash and/or yellow shoes to tie it all together.
