So here is a pic of the bridesmaid dress I am thinking of ordering. I am deciding between a regency color or plum color. I have included samples of both colors in the same material as the dress I would order (chiffon). Which color do you like better?
Plum color (in more natural light)
Plum color in darker lighting:

What color flowers, etc, do you want to have?

If I were your Bridesmaid or Best Man I would much prefer the plum, it tends to be much more flattering on different skin tones.

Plum seems classier in my opinion.

I strongly prefer the plum color. It’s dark and forgiving and the cool undertone is very flattering. The regency color is pretty, but it might be a bit bright for an October wedding. I love the dress you picked for your bridesmaids!!

Another vote for plum! It looks like a deeper, richer, jewel tone that would most likely be universally flattering. At least, more so than regency. Good luck!

I’m hoping to have different shades of purple and blue for the flowers

I like the regency personally – what do your maids think?

I had pretty much the same decision, my BM’s and I ended up going with the more regency shade. Somehow for us it was more flattering and more elegant. Both colors are gorgeous though!
Edit: I just saw the regency color in the sunlight.. I’d go with the plum. I like the darker purples. The color we had gone with was called ‘lapis’ at david’s bridal. It was the regency shade.. but much darker. That first picture was a little deceptive!
