    How is black a more masculine color than grey? I don’t see that at all.

    I think it would look fabulous, and I also can’t imagine how anyone could think that black is masculine but grey is not.

    I like the color combo! I’d say if the girls are in black, it’d be nice to pair it up with a brighter, more bold pink for a summer wedding. I don’t view black as a “masculine” color per say, but a classic, kinda sexy color. Go for whatever you like!

    I think it would look great however you choose because those colors all look superb together. πŸ™‚

    Sorry I’m not much help, haha.

    I don’t think it will look weird at all…besides…they will be holding bouquets which will definitely add a pop of color. I think it will look great.

    I actually prefer the contrast (men and women wearing opposite colors). It is less matchy-matchy. I don’t think having the women in black while the men in gray will look bad at all. First, I doubt the guys (other than your groom) would even think that the women are wearing more “masculine” colors than they are. I think your Groom is having a little bit of Wedding brain thinking too much into the colors. Glad to know he is at least engaged n the planning! πŸ˜‰

    I do have to be honest, I think have both the guys and girls in grey looks a little odd. How about doing something like the picture above with the black suits and grey dresses? Or maybe putting the girls in something pink? Just ideas.

    Alfred Angelo has a charcoal color that looks like it is the same color of the dresses in your picture.  I got my dresses from them and they are $115.  I know most of their dresses are within the price range you are talking about. 

    If you are really not into that idea I think you are fine doing the girls in black and guys in gray.  Maybe you could even do a black dress with a pink sash to make it match you colors a little more.

    I don’t think black cocktail dresses is that “masculine”

    I think black on women is very classic and elegant. They don’t call it a little black dress for nothing. Grey suits with grey dresses would be weird. If Fiance wants to wear grey I think black dresses is the perfect solution.

    I think having contrast in the men vs women colors will look better. If you want the women to wear grey, keep an eye on J Crew sales – right now, they have a bunch of dresses within your budget. Otherwise, I think it will look fine to have the women in black dresses and the men in grey suits.

    All grey seems a bit bland. I love the pic you posted – grey for girls and black for guys. I appreciate the contrast, even though I like grey suits. But since Fiance has an opinion (mine did too – black tuxes, not grey suits, much to my disappointment) I’d go for the contrast, just the opposite colors.

    Ann Taylor has these in grey if you go for all grey:

    Most bridesmaid’s lines have a grey option…  sometimes it looks silver in some fabrics that aren’t totally matte.   I ordered mine from netbride.com for 120 per girl including shipping to Canada.
