    I would def go with the coral, it looks really pretty and the terracota does not look coral in my opinion at all! And you are being outside in a garden, I think the bright coral will look gorgeous 😉

    Go with the Terracotta! I’ve seen the coral dress in person and it is PINK. The terracotta seems like it would fit in way nicer!

    I think Terracotta would look best with the grey. It has that “vintage” feel.

    Between orange or pink, which color do you like better?

    To me, their coral does look more coral-y than the terracotta, which appears kind of orange-y/brown.  Do you really not like pink?  ‘Cause then I could see how their coral would be disappointing.

    If you prefer pink to orange/brown, then go with the coral.  If you prefer orange/brown to pink, then go with the terracotta.  Personally, I’d pick the coral but that’s me.

    I explicitly didn’t pick my favorite bridesmaid dress because of a similar color issue.  My color is blush.  I wanted a very soft pink color.  Most designer’s blush was a beige, tan, brown, or nude color.  I ended up picking a dress that came in my true pink blush color even though it was my second favorite dress design.

    @Spanglbee:  Fair enough.  My thought was it could be pretty to have the ladies in gray dresses with coral flowers and the guys with coral ties.  it may eliminate your problem.  

    Of these two colors I think the terracotta is closest to coral.

    I like the coral, it’s a bright pop of color, and not muted.  With grey and then terracotta you have kind of muted colors.

    What do your BM’s think?

    When I look at the swatches, the first looks pink and the second looks coral. Both will look awesome with grey, good luck on whichever you decide! But if your looking for a true coral, go with the terracotta!
