If I were you, I would do long navy dresses. Then, with the groomsmen,  do the navy tuxes with mint vests & ties. Cream flowers with mint ribbon to hold the bouquets together. You know what though, when I was doing my engagement pictures,  there was a bridal party that wore navy blue fitted lace dresses that went right below the knee…and they looked so gorgeous & sophisticated. You don’t have to go with a “bridesmaid” dress. Sometimes regular dresses are even nicer. I’ll see if I can find some pictures.

Ha, I want Navy dresses and my boyfriend likes Mint! funny  I totally agree with you that navy looks so sophisticated, but mint is unique and different! The colors look awesome together, have you thought about having half your girls wear one color and half wear the other?

I would choose  navy dress so your bridesmaids at least had a hope of wearing it again. Do not have the men wear mint vests and ties. It looks too high school prom-ish to have colored vests. If they wear vests, have them match the tux. You can bring in color with their ties and/or boutonnieres.

Aftersix 6673 – this is my all time favorite bridesmaids dress.

I think something like this would be really pretty only sleeveless.

julies1949:  yeah you’re right….don’t do a colored vest. It should match the tux. But a colored tie would be fine.

Mint could be very nice the style of dress could be very class and so nothing prom like dresses navy i dont think for summer personally i like white,cream or ivory for bridesmaids for the traditional meaning of confusing any demons or bad luck away from the bride.

FutureBride625:  Why don’t you ask your BMs? If you think you’ll be equally happy with either choice, it may help them feel more included to have their input taken into account. Plus, if you give them the opportunity to help with some of these decisions, they may end up finding the perfect dress and save you all the work that goes into it. 😉

I work in a bridal boutique and the most popular colors are navy, plum/eggplant, and blush. Navy is awesome because its dark but not black so it looks slimming on everyone. I also agree with julies1949 about not having color vests. Do a nice neutral suit and matching color ties/pocket squars.

If you need any recommendation on designers or styles let me know!

FutureBride625:  I think if you want navy, then go for navy!

(besides, in summer, wont’ you have a lot of greenery around? The navy will pop more against it)

ETA: you can also incorporate mint by having say, a mint sash or doing bridesmaids bouquets with a lot of mint greenery (dusty miller, that sort of thing). Or you can also mix it up and have your Maid/Matron of Honor in a different color than your other BMs or the flower girl (if you have one) in a different color.

FutureBride625:  Everyone’s telling you different – but I would totally do mint since it’s a summer wedding. I had coral and it was nice! I agree with PP – Please don’t match the tux vest to the mint color. I hate matchy matchy… We did coral and the guys wore grey suits with a paisley tie that tied in the coral but wasn’t overboard. 

Go mint!

Definitely think about the color of flowers you want and how you want them to show up.  If you go with white flowers, they will show up more promintently on navy than on mint.  Also, think about the fabric you go with.  If you go with mint chiffon, it says country or shabby chic to me whereas navy satin is more preppy.  What is the vibe/theme you are going for?
