I thought I was decided that Persian Plum would be the colour of my bridesmaid dresses, however after searching for things to match I am struggling! I wanted to have purple dresses and pink flowers, however when I saw this colour I fell in love with it.
My other option is African Violet which is much easier to match up and would go well with the colour scheme I want! I will put some pics below, with the shoes they will be wearing too (also, can you let me know if you like these!).
Please vote and take into consideration what looks nice, as well as what will be most practical!

i think because you are getting married in june you can get away with more vibrant colours, and that clutch and shoes do match the persian plum colour, i love it and think it will look amazing in pictures. im much more a fan of that than the violet colour

I love em both! How about your girls wear alternating colors or just have the Maid/Matron of Honor in one color and the BMs in another? Do you have an inspiration pic of the pink bouquets you want to help comare?

I was considering persian plum as well until I saw it in person. I wanted purple bridesmaid dresses, but the persian plum was just fuschia to me.

Thanks for the comments Bees! This is the overall look I am going for with flowers if it helps!

That’s funny, my friend is looking at that dress, too, for us! I like both colors, too. I think the shoes would match either one! Pick your favorite color or as another poster suggested, have the Maid/Matron of Honor in another color?

Both colours are really nice and I love that dress style but I think if you go with the Persian (which would look fantastic in photos btw) then perhaps a little less pink in the bouquet

I have just ordered swatches of both (complete rip off!!) so hope this will help me make a decision!!
Has anyone else used either colour? If so could you post some pics please?

I voted for African Violet because I think it’ll look better on more people (I’m not sure what your BMs look like…). I have blonde hair and would look terrible in the fuschia color, but that purple is more universal – and super elegant! Fuschia flowers are not very common so if you’re trying to match the fuschia dresses to the flowers that could be tough.
ETA: Where are the shoes from?! I love them!!!

So after getting the swatches, I just have to go with the Persian Plum, I just love it too much! Sorry to go agaisnt the poll Bees but the African Violet just isn’t bright enough for me!
Thanks for all the comments!
