My florist and I (well… really just me!) are torn between dark purple or plum dahlias for my July wedding. Which do you think would look best with my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses?
Three are wearing Violet Dust, two are wearing Vintage Wisteria, and two are wearing Dahlia!
Here are the dahlias!
Other flowers in their bouquets: light pink spray roses, dusty pink roses, and a light pink hydrangea. Thanks in advance!

I love the dark purple! The plum one is a bit too dark IMO

The plum with the light pinks will probably give you a more vintage and romatic look while the dark purple withe the pink will be a bit brighter (like a summer garden theme)… what works better with your other decor or theme?
I would go with that.

I like the plum better because it doesn’t match any of the dresses, but it looks gorgeous with each color. I would love to see your bouquet after the wedding!!!

I would use some of each.

the dark purple variety hold up better than the plum. Even on the photo you posted it looks as if the center is starting to fade/bleed. I find the plum color looks kind of black on wedding photos. julies1949 idea of using both is probably a safe bet.
Dahlias are awesome!!! 🙂 Great choice!

dark purple because it is a medium shade between the darkest and lightest dress.
Your florist should make a decision for you.
