So I am torn between what to choose for my bridesmaids dress colors. I was thinking of purple but it seems like everyone is doing purple and its going to be hard to find gray flowers. However , with gray dress I can have their bouquets with purple flowers which is easier to do.
Do gray dresses look good in pictures?

This was a tough one for me too but i went with the grey silver! My florist actually suggested the silver because then the purple flowers would stand out more. Here is a pic of my Bridesmaid or Best Man. It was hard to find shoes tho.

Purple IMO…it pops and is flattering on most all skin types and hair colors.

I really like that color of grey you found. It’s like a dark metallic grey. I think it’s like a black and most color flowers would go well with it.

I say purple because it’s timeless. After all, it is the color of royalty!!!!!

I’m for purple too – a most flattering color.

I actually like the gray. I agree the purple flowers will pop. Otherwise, you’d need to pick a third color for flowers since purple dresses and purple flowers would be too much. You could do the plum purple dresses with lavender colored flowers though or vice versa. I feel like sooo many people use purple, but that’s just me. 🙂

I had a tough choice between purple and gray too. I didn’t want purple because of the 2 weddings I’ve been to recently, both had purple BMs dresses. I wanted to do something different. I narrowed it down to either gray or black. Here is a picture of one of my BMs in her dress. Please excused the wrinkles. We just picked them up :p

I like the dresses that are in a steel gray color! Way more flower options than with purple. However I love the style of the purple dress :o)

Before clicking on this I thought… purple, no contest. But once I saw them, I liked the grey dresses so much more! They’re gorgeous! I also like your idea about having contrasting bouquets. Much easier with the grey dress.

I like the grey one, it’s more neutral and universally flattering than purple! Plus, like you said, the purple flowers will pop!

Why would you want grey flowers? I think the gray looks better. I like purple don’t get me wrong. But more of a lilac/lavender purple than deep purple. I love the grey dress but not so crazy about the material though. Love the color.

Definitely the grey! It’s a flattering color and more timeless, and the flowers will really pop.
I’m not sold on the big poofy bubble hem of that grey dress you posted, though. I like the actual bridesmaid dresses the PP showed a little better. (That’s my unsolicited opinion on that! 🙂 )
