i am making myself lose my mind. it seems to have consumed my every free minute, and i am stressing out about it. is this ridiculous?
my theme is a new england shoreline wedding and my wedding is in september. below is my inspiration board:
so with this being said, below are the current colors for the bridesmaid dresses and maid of honor. my Maid/Matron of Honor is going to be in the “ink” color (the navy-ish one on the left) and the bridesmaids in the “slate” color – all of the dresses are lulakate and i let the girls pick whatever style they wanted, so they could be comfortable. the color in the middle looks pink but it’s really off-white and that is the plan for the sash color, at the moment.
here are my issues, i hope you can provide some opinions to help me:
1 – is the ink color too much of a contrast for the maid of honor?
2 – should i have all the girls in the slate color instead, and give the Maid/Matron of Honor a different colored sash?
3 – if i go with a different color sash, what would look good – pink?
thank you all for any and all advice/feedback you might have!

I think ink compliments the slate. Will all the girls be wearing the sash?
Don’t stress out – your color pallete looks great – as do the dresses.

Okay, I am color obsessed too and am by no means an expert, but here are my thoughts:
1) first of all you have GREAT taste! seriously i love this theme, i think blues and pinks are really awesome, fun, flirty, and romantic together, and you’ve really assembled the tones nicely. so no matter what, you’re on the right track and will eventually figure out something you feel to be a masterpiece.
2) i think i would probably have all the girls in the same color dress, even though i know you want to distinguish your moh. i like your idea of a different color sash– i would probably make her’s darker and bolder, maybe even more magenta.
3) i would consider having all your girls in the ink color over the slate, just because it’s a little more formal. don’t get me wrong, either will look fab, but i think again the pink and blue contrast on the girls and then throughout the theme would be really fun.
good luck! post your updates!!!

I think the colors are fabulous! Althought the Ink is very dark, I think it’s a wonderful contrast of the Bridesmaid or Best Man colors.

thank you so much! its kind of pathetic how much thought goes in to it, isnt it? it is really stressing me out, also because i can’t really compare the actual dresses because usually the places only have a swatch, know what i mean?
then there’s the flower girl dresses (don’t get me started, i didnt even want flower girls!) – i was thinking pink that could match the bands on the girls dresses?
so many details!!
