So I had FINALLY decided on the colours for our September outdoor wedding. I was loving pictures I had seen of blush/grey colour combinations. I thought it would look really nice and fit with our sorta vintage theme.
However, after looking more at pictures online, I realize that blush dresses really wash a person out depending on their skin colour! We were planning to have grey suits and a blush MoH dress. (We are only having one person each in our bridal party). My MoH has a quite pale complexion so I don’t think blush would be best. I was thinking grey MoH dress would work but then that would be TOO much grey if the groom and best man wore grey suit.
I was considering maybe a grey MoH dress if the boys wore black suits? Then the blush colour could be in the flowers on our bouquet. Any thoughts on this? I never thought choosing wedding colours would be such a big decision! Haha.
I played around with the wedding party designer on the David’s Bridal website and this is roughly how our wedding party could look (sorry the quality of the picture is crappy, I had to take it on my phone!)

I would say go for the grey dress if it was in a shiny fabric so it looks like silver. I agree blush would wash out most people. I saw a picture recently (on pintrest maybe?) with your colour scheme and they wore silver dresses with pink boquets and pink shoes it looked really nice

I rented this dress for my bmaid dress for a wedding I was in a few months ago, and it was fabulous. All the maids wore long grey dresses:

@vivalakarly: I like that idea and to bringing in the pink with the bouquets would be perfect

Grey is the best color ever!!! I’m just joking however I think it fits well with your other colors. I think it might look a little better if the guys wore grey suits however it still looks fine if they wear black.

I am not too sure if you have seen this pic before….but here is one of ours. Like you we had a small wedding party of 4 so attire was a lottle difficult. After taking into account numerous things (flower colors, weather, skin tone, fabric, etc.) we decided on a silver Maid/Matron of Honor dress and men in mismatched grey suits. I liked the look and felt we had enough pops of color to make it work.
I think you can’t go wrong with black or grey. What about having the groom stand out with the blush tie and the bm in a grey to match the moh?? Or even have the groom in black to match your black sash and the bm in grey?? I think anything will look beautiful. Good luck.
