Omg how pretty! I love the beading and how light and airy your dress looks. Stunning!

I like navy and dark grey for the bridesmaids. I hear you about making the burgandy work; I think it could. But right now I’m thrown off because it seems too dark and attention grabbing, where the navy and dark grey are dark but blend in. Maybe a different shade?

tjncali :  I LOVE that burgundy dress, but like PP said it’s pretty attention grabbing. I’d go with navy or dark gray

tjncali :  dark grey/gunmetal to pick up on your beading. I also think hydrangea hues could work in with your dress and be very complimentary or even a greenish grey tone could work.

I think fabric choice and dress style is important too. You want soft and floaty to match your dress. The Burgundy dress you posted are too harsh simply for the dress structure and fabric choice. If you went more floaty and net or tulle type dresses burgundy could work too!

Gorgeous dress by the way 😍

I think a charcoal gray would look really nice.

tjncali :  First, your dress is absolutely STUNNING! The tulle, the beading, the color, all of it is just gorgeous. I’m a fan of contrasts so I’d go with a burgandy bridesmaid dress. Second choice would be a navy dress; third choice would be gunmetal gray. Look for a cool/blue undertone for any color you choose. Maybe a silk/satin fabric (not chiffon or tulle) to really make the dresses pop (both yours and the bridesmaids). Or you could go with dark-grayish-blue chiffon dresses (think stormy skies) for the bridesmaids for a more matchy look. Could you order/buy a couple of possible dresses in your preferred colors and see how they look next to your dress and return the ones you don’t like? Good luck!

Your dress is stunning! I love it! 

I would recommend to go with a way different color for the bridesmaids. I think if they are wearing gray than it will look too similar to your dress. However, I know some people like the look of a very muted color scheme too. 

I’m sure anything will look great!

Navy or charcoal gray are the best choices! I think the burgundy would clash.

Same for me!  Navy or dark gray.  The burgundy I love (it’s one of my wedding colors), though definitely takes the attention away from you.  

Beautiful gown!

Yay. Hello fellow blue bride! Your gown is gorgeous! I feel the navy or a dark grey bridesmaid colour would compliment your gown. The red is a bit strong, although pretty. You are getting married in autumn, right? Can your bridesmaids try on those three colors with you or send photos?

On my screen your dress reads a light turquoise. The opposite (complimentary) color on the spectrum is orange. I think a dark burnt orange could look stunning.

I think either charcoal or black would be a beautiful contrast from your dress and really make you stand out.

I think deep grey, light grey or even something a little slivery and metallic might work well. Your dress is divine!

tjncali :  I am doing burgundy and navy as my wedding colour sand the cpntrast is stunning! Maybe use one for bridesmaids and the other for groomsmen?

Though personally I think a navy blue, maybe sequin navy blue? would be totally stunning against your soft blue/grey dress. <3
