Okay, I am officially the most indecisive person EVER. Has this happened to anyone since becoming engaged and planning your wedding? I feel like I can’t make a solid decision on ANYTHING. :/
Anyway, here is my final post about picking a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress. Church ceremony will be at 2 pm followed by a cocktail hour at around 4 and reception that will be outdoors in November and we are still in the process of deciding the attire but it would somewhere in the formal area. Colors and decorations are all neutrals/golds/champagnes.
I need to decide if I should go with amethyst (dark purple) or black for Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. If I chose black, we would nix the black sash and do a gold/champagne belt or sash for a pop of color. So what do you all think, bees: PURPLE OR BLACK?!?!
Also, does anyone have any input on the whole black tie creative/optional attire setting for an outdoor day/night wedding? It starts during the day but it’s in late November and will go well into the night and early morning so I’m kind of on the fence about that!
Thanks in advance for any advice/input/suggestions. I appreciate all the help!!
And here is my dress in case that helps!

I voted purple because my bridesmaids wore purple and they came out great in pictures!

I voted purple because it’s a little bit softer. Your dress is very romantic and I think black can be a little stark on pale bridesmaids. The purple is more likely to suit everyone.

I think purple would work amazing with the accent colours you mention. And olso they would pop so much more in pictures and be a great backdrop to your gorgeous dress.

I love black bridesmaid dresses in cocktail length, but often feel like it’s too much black for floor length dresses. I really like the purple color and it’s PERFECT for that time of year!

i voted purple 🙂 but maybe with the sash in purple as well, the black sash clashes a bit with the purple dress

I hate seeing bridesmaids in black. Are they going to a funeral or a wedding? That’s what always springs to my mind.

I voted purple but, I had a purple wedding myself so I am probably a little biased 🙂

I picked purple only because I love the black sash with it! Also I think it’ll look so great next to your dress!
