Here’s mine, but our bouquets were just green and white.  I totally got flack at the bridal stores every time I asked about grey dresses, so be prepared that even if your girls get on board, it’s not over…

I think that’ll look great! I’m also planning on bright pink and orange flowers, and using greyish-purple dresses to balance that out.

Yep, we bought ours from the one bridal store that we walked in, asked about grey, and the saleslady was automatically like… “Chic and sophisticated, that’s going to look awesome!”, rather than “Ew, why would you want grey, that’s so drab and dreary”. Apparently they’re becoming much more common so hopefully us early adopters have paved the way for future stress free grey bridesmaid’s dress shopping 🙂

My husband was wearing RED, so it started out as a way to not clash with that, but as the resistance became clear I got really defensive of my dresses.  hehe.

I always crop heads off pictures for privacy reasons when I post them openly, but if you want I can link you to our full slideshow in a PM.

Ok, I hate how you can’t seem to just attach one photo to a PM, so you’re stuck with the link to the whole thing, but hopefully you can get something decent to show the girls.

This is part of one of my favorite inspiration boards I’ve found while looking for my own wedding, I am planning on grey/silver dresses too. Love them with the pop of color in the shoes and flowers!

Personally I love grey! Even have our bedroom walls painted grey.

Priscilla of Boston has a ton of cute gray dresses. Jim Hjelm has a bunch too, although they’re lighter, more like silver-y. I really wanted to do gray but it didn’t end up working out 🙁

I saw was waiting for a post like this one. I want to do grey dresses as well since I love the idea of fuschia flowers but my sister wants a pink dress. I am having a hard time selling the idea of grey dresses to her but the MOH is totally on board.

We had grey dresses before they were a ‘thing’ (and got the ‘oh, grey? huh.’ response). Enjoy!
