I don’t think you’re being a bad friend, but she might be upset with you for using it. For me, I use a short response like that when I’m upset or hurt. But like you said. you can’t call wedding colors. HAve you tried bringing it up again?

Uh, no offense, but I think your friend would be really out of line for being upset with you for this.  You’re right, your color schemes and the feel of your weddings will be totally different, and further, she is not even having a wedding any time soon, and even if she did, she might change her mind about colors in that time or could opt for having yellow dresses.  And even if she didn’t change her mind, navy is a pretty neutral color.  If she’s upset over your choice to use navy for dresses, she’s being extremely irrational.  No one will even remember what color your Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses were by the time she gets married, except for you and the people who actually wore them, and it’s not like she’ll want the same exact Bridesmaid or Best Man dress as you anyway.  It’s sweet of you to be concerned, but I don’t think you’re in the wrong here at all.  It’s not like she said she wanted to have halter-neck watermelon-colored dresses and then you decided to do the exact same.  You’re just using another color–a very neutral color!–that was already in your palette.

But, did you consider using a different lightweight fabric like organza, taffeta, or charmeuse for your Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses in teal?  It would probably still look great.  I don’t see any reason why the fabric of Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses needs to match the fabric of the bride’s dress, unless you’re really set on having them do so.

yeah, shes probably upset, but really doesnt have a reason to be – being that shes not even engaged yet. its not like she was in the middle of planning her wedding and you stole all her ideas. she will get over it. and look at it this way when she gets engaged, maybe she can wear whatever Bridesmaid or Best Man dress you pick to her Rehearsal Dinner since it will be one of her “hopeful” wedding colors.
