Hi ladies, I’m having a hard time picking a color for my bridesmaid dresses and I’m hoping for some advice. I was initially thinking red but I was in a friend’s wedding last June at the same venue in red dresses so I want to pick another color. It’s an evening wedding in August, and they’ll be floor length. Here are the colors I’m considering:
- Navy – one of my other initial thoughts, but the venue has a glass large glass wall overlooking the water and I’m afraid at night the bridesmaids will start to “disappear”.
- Plum – I like that it’s more of a color than neutral shade. I’m thinking closer to eggplant than standard purple.
- Silver/Gray – is it too much of a neutral color in a room with lots of wood paneling?
- Other suggestions?
Here are photos of the venue (both ceremony and reception):

I love eggplants purple. I love navy as well, but I think it would get lost. The venue is gorheous as weel.

If you are having floor length dresses, plum with silver/grey sashes would be beautiful, .

That’s where I had my reception (Ceremony was at Gas Works Park)! It was absolutlely wonderful and everyone there is just awesome. Such a gorgeous space! I’d definitely recommend adding some color- the plum would pop so nicely against all of the wood and the backdrop of the water. my girls were in a fushia-y purple and it looked really nice.

I love plum (my bm dresses are plum so I’m bias). Plum looks good on every skin tone.
My other suggestion would be a bronze color. That would look very pretty and elegant, but it would be much harder to find and leave you with less choices.

@livcurious: I really like the idea of navy to represent the beautiful view outside.
