Hello bees!!! So originaly when I got engaged I thought of gray/teal or gray/coral for the colors of my wedding. FH said he wanted to wear his favorite colors, black and gold. Ok it can be done, black tux, gold vest and tie, classy. I had decided on burgundy bridesmaids dresses to accent with the gold, but now I am thinking black bridesmaids dresses with some sort of gold accent. My wedding is at night so black isn’t a bad choice, it’s just my wedding dress has some blush color to it and I don’t know how to or if I should incorporate that blish color through the wedding if I choose black dresses. I am so not creative with colors and decor 🙁
I appreciate any auggestions! This is my dress, just so you can see the color in it.

I think either of those choices are good. I wore black when I was a bridesmaid and I loved it. It was super chic.
Take a step back and see what you’d like for decor. Do you want mostly black and gold or would you like more colour. You could include blush flowers with either one but burgundy would be more colourful.
burgundy bridesmaids with blush flowers and gold shoes would be so lovely in the fall.

I love the idea of burgundy bridesmaid dresses. I think the color mixed with touches of gold, blush and even navy would be stunning!

I’d actually avoid making blush a wedding color if you’re wearing a blush dress. You are not a bridesmaid; you are the bride. You do not wear a wedding color, because you do not blend in.
Black and gold are neutrals: you can pick any colors you want and it’ll look great. Personally we did grey and gold and I didn’t pick any “colors” beyond that (though we did have grey napkins). This allowed the florist to get colorful with her florals, which I loved. 🙂

let him wear black, but tell him gold has to be incorportated another way – decor, bridesmaid dresses, etc. but i wouldn’t have him in a gold vest…colored vests with a tux are a bit prom. if he’s in black, you can do burgundy for the bridesmaids, or gold (have you seen all the gold sequined dresses around?!?), and blush and burgundy flowers go well with both.
