I think all the girls in gray with green or yellow shoes (let them pick which color so it’s mixed) would be very pretty.

Otherwise, letting them pick is probably better.  Yellow can be a tricky color to wear.

Yellow can be tricky…especially if you are pale…it would be nice to let them pick if you had like every other but if not I would just choose it for them…I think green looks pretty good on most people. I do LOVE the idea of having grey with either green or yellow shoes…I think grey with yellow shoes would look amazing!

My bridesmaid dresses are yellow, and my maids run from pale to unnaturally tan (sorry, that’s a mean thing to say but it’s true) and they all look good in the dress.  I think it depends on the shade of yellow.  It’s my favorite color, so I obviously have no qualms about it.

I think gray dresses with yellow shoes would look great!  I like that idea.

I think letting the pale wear the green and tan wear yellow is a great idea and wonderful compromise! I’m in a wedding this summer with orange and coral dresses, I’m tan so I’ll be in an orange dress. I am 100% okay with this! I think yellow is such a fresh and pretty color! ๐Ÿ™‚

I have fair skin and yellow makes me look jaundiced.

Could you do a grey bridesmaid dress that maybe has a yellow sash? I think that would be  cute too.

I love yellow, but my mom always told me to never wear it because it washed me out. However, I feel that it depends on the shade. I say go to a bridal shop to try on Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and try out yellow, green and gray and see what you think then. You might be surprised, a friend of mine did yellow and it was beautiful!

Yellow is a difficult colour. But there’s ways around it. What about pewter dresses with yellow sashes and shoes and green bouquets? That could be a great spring type look. ๐Ÿ˜€

I’m a pale girl that looks good in yellow, I say if you want yellow, have yellow!

Oh I love the idea of the grey dress with a sash! I think that grey and yellow is so pretty! I’ve seen some really great fabrics with those colors!
