    @TCbride1:  I am thinking of doing charcoal for the groomsmen and a lighter kind of dove grey for bridesmaids, kind of like this:

    @TCbride1:  I didn’t even think of that!  I don’t think charcoal for everyone would be too much though, as long as you had pops of color for flowers, etc. like you said.

    Personally, the gray dress you posted looks to me like it has blue undertones to it. I think that it will be different enough from the charcoal color of the suits and won’t read monotone in pictures. I love the idea of the greys because your eyes will be drawn to those pops of color in the photos. It will be a very pretty backdrop for fun flowers and shoes!

    Ahhhh I had the same dilemma and ended up choosing pale pink Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses instead.

    I had the same dilemma, but I think it’s going to look awesome! The Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are a darker charcoal grey and the Groomsmen suits are a lighter grey. We’re accessorizing with yellow and teal, so there will be still be a lot of colour and I think that having the two different greys will contrast. 

    Any way you can go for maybe lighter grey dresses or suits for contrast?

    We did charcoal gray dresses with light gray suits, and I thought the effect was great! Here is a picture:
