Girl, you can do whatever you want. I think gray is elegant all year round.

Totally! My girls will be wearing either grey or red and it’s a June wedding.

Personally I don’t think there is any problem with doing a dark color for Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses regardless of season.  I think you can make it more summer-y with the specific dress you choose, flowers, accessories, etc.  But if you’re really worried about it, I think a light gray would be better suited for summer than a dark gray.

camette:  I think it’s totally fine. But I’m using a fall-ish color palette for my June wedding, so what do I know. 😉

Yes. I’m in a wedding on July 30th this summer and that’s the exact color of our dresses 🙂

I like the picture you posted where the BM’s have light colored bouquets. Blush would be really pretty with the dark gray & make it more summery! Here’s some inspiration.

Totally fine! I was in a wedding last August and we wore gray Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. The color was lovely.

Perfectly fine!  Grey is a nice neutral and a nice darker grey like in your picture does well with a lot of different skin tones.  You can always punch up the color with your flowers.
