I’m having trouble deciding on a color for my bridesmaids’ dresses. We’re having a winter black tie wedding and the dresses will be floor length. The colors will likely either be gray/blush/gold OR navy/blush/gold. I like the way that dark dresses look in pictures because it makes the bride really stand out. However, my parents are in the camp of “dark dresses are for funerals,” and I have to admit that a little of that has rubbed off on me. On the other hand, do pastel dresses (e.g. pink or blush) look too out of season at a winter wedding?
Thanks in advance!

This is not one of your choices above but what about gold dresses? I’ve seen some winter weddings with gold as a color and the girls look gorgeous!

Grey or metallics would look great! I think pastels might work but it depends on your venue

@cluelessbride18: I say go with navy and maybe add a pop of a bright colour. IMO Funerals are for PURE BLACK and there should be no colour. So adding a pop with a sash, or bling, or shawl, or something, will elevate it beyond funeral

navy, blush and gold is my color scheme for my summer wedding lol, but it’s pretty versatile. I voted for black because I think it can look really good. but gold would be awesome too

I voted navy but that’s because my girls are wearing it and we have the same color scheme! Pewter and/or blush would be beautiful too – and fine at a winter wedding – but I’d take into account your bridesmaids skin tones before making those choices. While light colored dresses look gorgeous on the pictures you see online, when I put my girls in them it just didn’t work with their skin tones. Also, none of them were a fan of wearing such a light color, so I didn’t torture them!

I love gray so that’s what I chose.

Personally, I think of funerals as black, but forget dark colors don’t seem that way to me. I think pastels may be a bit out if place in the winter, but then again in a warm climate those colors seem more appropriate, so I’m not sure

For me, it’s between grey and navy. I ended up choosing navy just because I love blue too much not to choose it! I generally like darker colors on bridesmaids, but that’s my personal preference.

@cluelessbride18: I feel like blush is too spring, so I voted for navy. I think pewter would be good too, but it doesn’t work well with a lot of skin tones.

I vote either navy or gray – both are classic and classy, and would look gorgeous at a winter wedding. I’m a huge blush fan (my BMs are wearing blush dresses :)) but I think that’s better for spring/summer weddings

I did navy. I liked it at the time, but tastes change and in your color scheme I am leaning more towards the pewter/gray. I think that is more formal than a blush color, but I think the blush color is prettier as an accent with your other colors than navy.

I think the pastels are a little bit on the “summery side” but I’m sure there are ways to make it work! I am planning a gold/coral/blush summer wedding and these are my fav bridesmaid dresses so far. They are from Allure Bridesmaid collection. Soo classy!
