My fiance and i picked out a type of bridesmaids dress but we are stuck on the color. we love both of these colors but only want one solid color to go with the silver and white we already have. so which one is better? Canary Yellow or Wisteria Purple?

@sheila.sierra.37: Purple definitely. Canary yellow is not a colour known for being universally flattering. I think it washes out a lot of people and can make curvier girls look lumpy etc. The purple is really pretty and elegant.

I don’t wear yellow at all since it makes me look like I need to be driven the nearest ER. purple is universally flattering

I personally prefer the purple!

I think the purple is more flattering, but yellow is less common.

I think both are beautiful colours, and it all depends on what looks best on your girls! Personally, I love the yellow, but I know a lot of people don’t wear yellow well – so if that’s the case with your girls, I vote purple.

Purple is my color so I am being biased LOL! Love me some purple. However, I don’t see yellow done a much as purple so that may add a little uniqueness.

If the yellow suits your maids, the yellow will look stunning and refreshing with white and silver. But, it’s hard to pull off, so I’d consult them before making a decision.

@sheila.sierra.37: Definitely purple. That yellow will only work on a few skin tones. You really have to consider how it will look on the majority of your girls.
Why not ask the ladies? Get their input. After all, they are wearing the dresses. I’m sure they’d appreciate the consideration.

Ahh I’m a sucker for yellow. But yellow dresses can be tricky. Depends heavily on your girls’ skintones/undertones – ex. I could pull off the yellow, but my sister could not. So I’d have them try on or just ask their opinion, and go from there.
ETA: Full disclosure: my colors are white, yellow and grey so I might be biased. =)
To get around the yellow dress situation, I went with grey Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses & yellow flowers.
