jennacaridi:  Not ridic. I think it would look lovely with the Mohs in the pink and the bms in the grey. I’m having my bms wear pink and moh wear a peachy colour, all wearing nude heels as well.

I think having the MOHs in pink with the other BMs in grey will look nice. Especially since you are having them all wear nude pumps. You may want to have them all do somewhat of the same hair style as well to tie them all together (hair up, hair down, curled, etc.)

With such a big wedding party I think combo is perfect! Helps them stand out a bit more 🙂

jennacaridi:  gotcha. in that case I think having the 2 in pink and the rest in grey will look fine. however, I would ask the 2 MOH’s their opinion on the pink color. They might not like it and prefer the grey. I know that pink color would look awful with my skintone and I wouldn’t want to wear it…even though I think it’s very pretty

I personally have never liked the concept of having the Maid/Matron of Honor or MsOH wear a different color from the bridesmaids. Nearly every photograph I have seen of this seems to draw too much attention to the Maid/Matron of Honor, which takes attention away from the bride.  It literally becomes THE accent color in the wedding photo, making the photo — to me anyway — appear unbalanced.

For what it’s worth, I generally like pink much more than than I like gray, BUT I LOVE the quarry color of that dress SO much more than the pale pink.  I think the quarry is SO elegant! I would have them all in that shade.

One crazy idea may be to have shawls made in the the pale pink for all of the girls, and you could take a few photos with the maids wearing their shawls. 🙂

jennacaridi:  Not weird! I’m having my Maid/Matron of Honor wear a different color dress than the rest of my BMs – although in a differetn color scheme than you, same idea. My Maid/Matron of Honor will be in plum and the BMs in victorian lilac. I’ve incorporated both of these colors into the wedding in various ways and have really used an entire palette of purples. I think for yours the MOHs should be in the pink and the BMs in the grey. Such a pretty color scheme!
