So we’ve narrowed down a style of the dress but can’t decide on a color. We’re looking at either black or purple. My dress is lace and ivory and the guys are wearing black suits. Any one have pics with bridesmaids in either black or purple dresses?
Also, not a huge difference but the black dresses are $95 and the purple are $150.
What color do you like?

I personally like the purple ones better. Also, are you paying for the dresses or having your bridesmaids? Because $50 might be a huge difference for them but if you are fine paying the cost for either then okay.

They are paying for their dresses. They all are comfortable paying up to $200.

What color flowers will your bridesmaids be carrying?

I find the whole black and white thing is getting over played. I have been to so many wedding now that do it. Very trendy. The purple is very pretty.

I am in the minority, but I really like the black. It’s classic. But in saying that, as long as they all look good in purple, they are totally wearable again.

Personally, I think the black looks kinda washed out. It’s not as deep or rich as the purple. For some reason my screen the black looks really dull. I think the purple will add a nice pop of color once the guys are wearing all black too.

Black, simply because I would be a thousand times morelikely to actually wear it again.

The black is cheaper, as in less expensive and TOTALLY re-wearable, and not in that convincing way that brides like to feed their bmaids 😉

Im alll about the colour 🙂 I feel it is elegant and also the pop of the purple I like. I also think that you could wear the purple again; I know for a while that purple was making a comeback (the new black I heard one mag say). I could definitely see someone wearing this to a cocktail party, or xmas party, or something else semi-formal.
