    Do you have other colors in the wedding? What time of year?

    I voted mint. You can do coral flowers.

    Take a straw poll of your bridesmaids rather than internet strangers. As an alabaster skinned lady, neither of those colors jump to mind as super flattering, but the dress itself could be different. So, I’d much rather try on the dress and see how it makes me look in person. It might be worth it to let everyone try on both colors to see if there’s consensus then.

    If they are really pale, it would depend on their skin tone which color would be better. I am pale with a ruddy skin tone, so coral would look awful on me. I voted mint green for that reason and because I love green.

    i feel like mint is earier to wear – but ask your girls if they have a preference. plus, finding mint flowers is like..impossible, whereas coral flowers are easy. so you can always do mint dresses and coral flowers.

    I’d much rather wear mint. But asking your girls sounds wise!

    My answer would depend upon on the complexions of your BMs, the season, venue, etc…

    asummerbridet7 :  I voted coral. My sister had her wedding in July. Her colors were coral and mint. She originally wanted us to wear mint, but realized that it did NOT flatter most of our skin tones. Being very pale, the mint looked awful on me and my other sister. Maybe take your BMs to try on dresses in both of those colors and see what you like better!

    asummerbridet7 :  do you have specific dresses in mind for each colour? If so, maybe show them the two styles and see if any have an opinion then? Otherwise as a PP suggested,  can you take them to try on coral and mint dresses?

    Coral is beautiful. My bridesmaids wore it and it looked great with pale skin!
