st0dad :  Yellow and Grey would work really well as a theme I think πŸ™‚ a less severe ‘Bee’ combination too! πŸ™‚ yellow and black, yellow and grey… it’s close πŸ™‚

I think grey totally works – I think if you go too closely to bees it might be a little overwhelming on each girl, so the grey kind of softens it, but it’s still close to black and yellow.

st0dad :  I think maybe instead of just yellow and black, you can throw some gray in too! I think that will be perfectly fine! Find a way to add a little gray into the bee theme. Maybe use gray tags on your honey jars? Use gray paper for the invites? Put gray ribbon on the centerpeices? Use gray napkins? There are plenty of ways to add gray in!

st0dad :  Gray will look great. I think it is important to have a color in any theme/scheme that balances everything out. Gray is so neutral that you could use it to accent things in small quantities and still pull everything together. I like the idea that a pp mentioned about incorporating gray ribbon or napkins. Having a theme is awesome (I love theme weddings!) but balance is key.

Just give them some yellow flowers and it blends right in!

Your theme will look better if it’s not overdone. Small touches here and there are plenty.

I think gray will look good. It’s pretty neutral, plus if you have a springy/yellow bouquet it will really POP in photos against a darker dress background.

Also, if your theme is bees – black and yellow can look a bit harsh. So doing more of the dark gray and yellow can help tie everything together without looking so jarring.

You are overthinking. Grey will be perfect. You don’t want the theme to slap people in the face. Like a PP said, have them carry yellow flowers.

What a cute theme, so creative! I think that grey is very neutral and just like the PPs above, I think if you give them some yellow flowers to carry, it will fit just perfectly with the rest of the theme.

What if they wore accessories that pulled your theme into their attire?

You can do so many things with hair and jewerly that could all say “bees” laughing

I totally loooooove your theme idea! love love love love! Allthough the dark gold that you are describing probably would look much better (or even a brown-ish colour, think beehive!!!), I do not think that gray will look awful. Not matchy-matchy, or specially “fun”, but, yeah, not that bad. Quite neutral. Allthough I think gray is more suitable for fall or winter, since it looks “cold”, but together with the bee theme it will probably look ok for a spring wedding.. It will just not give a spring-y, bee-y feeling?

If I would be honest, is there any way for you to change the dress color? If you can, I would.

I think that even navy blue would look better with bees than gray! Actually that would look pretty “fresh” together! πŸ™‚ Gray and yellow and not that pretty when put close together!

Is there any light blue alternative? (as in the sky where the bees fly?) or even pink (as in flowers?), as said, gray is not totally bad, but there should be far better options? even a flower printed dress could look lovely! Or a yellow? Orange? Red? Even a green dress would look more “fresh” with the bee theme than gray will do! 

But as said, gray could do fine if you put some effort into picking up the gray in your decor somehow! πŸ™‚

bibilicious :  , a few bees here and there will just look “off” and probably a bit weird, if you don’t incorporate them into your wedding theme. Grey will probably not compliment the theme very well so I would, like bibilicious, suggest that you change the dresses if you still can. I am sorry but I think that grey is the worst color you could choose if having a bee theme.

I think grey would look great. I like the idea of them holding yellow flowers. If it bothers you that much could you give them pale yellow wraps or gold wraps?

 

I personally think this is a little /too/ yellow, i’d pick a paler yellow to make it more subdued. Sunflowers might be a nice touch. I would make black more of an accent color and stick to the grey and yellow. I don’t see how that conflicts with some subtle bee details, as long as the bees are of the black and yellow variety and not brown.
