I think that it would depend on the style.  Do you have a style already picked out, if so can we see it?

Are you deciding on color before you decide on dress style? It’s hard to say one would look better than the other w/out knowing what the dresses look like.

Nude seems to have gotten more popular over the past couple of years. Just choosing one over the other, I’d probably go w/mint, as I prefer to go the color route over muted.

There’s an free iphone app out there called ‘Picup’. It essentially a photo upload app for iphones.  What you do is upload your photo to this app and it gives you a web address for you to use for websites.  It doesn’t allow you to insert the photo into the comment but it does allow you to link to the photo.

Hi darling! Nude is classic and sophisticated there’s no doubt, but personally I think mint (without knowing any further details) would suit almost anyone’s colouring (nude can wash some people out, I’m one of them) and mint is fresh, happy, sophisticated and maybe easier to accessoriout else where in the wedding. Also in terms of photos if the next to you I think mint would emphasise the brightness of you especially if it’s white. That said, go wittoy our gut, it’s your dream and whatever you choose you will make it beautiful!

I have olive tone skin, and I look “green” in mint.  Think about the complexion of your BMs before you decide!!

Lol sorry so many mistakes in that, darn auto correct on my phone kicks in! I meant easier to accessorise, and mint next to ur dress could make it pop, but trust ur instincts, you will have a fairytale either way!

I would wonder about how nude would look on the skintones of your bridesmaids (and therefore  prefer mint).

Yeah, nude color dresses just seem like a weird thing to me. Especially depending on the skin tones of your BMs, it could just totally wash them out. I vote mint!

I love mint. Plus, it tends to be more flattering on more skin shades.

My photographer told me that nude dresses are really difficult to photograph. On certain skintones and at certain angles the BMs can look, well, nude themselves. And from a Bridesmaid or Best Man perspective, I always feel washed out in them.
