    I don’t really think that’s something that girlfriends necessarily know about each other anymore — I don’t know my best friends’ favorite colors unless they’re really vocal about them, and I wouldn’t be offended if they don’t know mine.  It’s totally fine to ask!

    @butterfliesandhoney:  I think it’s fine. I know my mums and my SOs favourite colour, but I wouldn’t have a clue about any of my friends!

    I know my BM’s favorite colors, but I would not feel offended if someone asked me.

    Oops, I voted wrong in the poll.  You asked if I would be offended, so I voted “no way.”  But I see that the poll question is asking if it’s okay to ask about their favorite colors.  Sorry!  

    I think it’s totally fine to ask.  I don’t think any of my friends know my favorite colors.

    I’m not sure I even know my favorite color(s). I asked my bridesmaids for theirs and no one was offended (nor would I be if asked).

    I voted the wrong way in the poll- I need to learn how to read! I wouldn’t care if someone asked my favorite colors. I know a few of my friend’s favorite colors but they are very vocal about them.

    @butterfliesandhoney:  Asking their favorite color is ok, but keep in mind it doesn’t always translate to the gift. For example my favorite color may be pink and I wouldn’t mind a pink sweater, but I would not like a pink purse.

    I don’t see anything wrong with asking. I do know most of my closest friends favorite colors though….

    I plan on doing the same thing. I have a vague understanding of my friends’ favorite colors, but if I was buying them something they may wear, it’s important to know for sure. I also plan on asking my girls a few of their other favorites, just so I have that in the back of my mind as I’m compiling bridesmaids gifts. It’s more considerate, in my opinion, to do so, especially if you don’t know.
