you sound like me 6 months ago! Our colors are grey and dark purple and I didn’t know which one I wanted for the Bridesmaid or Best Man dress.

I ended up going for the purple dress but I kind of regret it. I love the look of a grey dress with dark purple flowers. I think that would look absolutely beautiful. I say gray!

You should add a poll πŸ™‚

Good luck!

Ohhh we have similar colors! Personally, I really love the look of gray dresses, but when I brought it up to my girls they ALL vetoed it. πŸ™ They said it would look too depressing if they were wearing gray. Pffff, what do they know? Anyways, since they all said they disliked it, we’re going with purple. I do love gray dresses though… PP is right, it looks so pretty with the pop of purple flowers!

I’m going for a similar color palette too! I love both of those dresses, but I think I want to figure out a way to bring in lighter colored dresses – champagne.  And have my Maid/Matron of Honor wear a dark purple and my younger sister Mauve…idk still trying to put it all together! I’d love to see ya’ll’s inspiration boards!

I have the same colors too! I decided on grey dresses and I am having them wear dark purple pashminas and have purple flowers. I just thought the grey would be more timeless looking.

I think the purple is more universally flattering than the gray. Gray can easily wash somebody out if it’s not the right shade for them.

I personally love grey. πŸ™‚

Our colors are charcoal grey and pink.  Don’t tell your BM’s they will wear their dress again but the chances of them wearing a neutral again over a color is pretty high. 

Here is the ones we choose.

Definitely gray! A few weekends ago I was a bridesmaid at my friends wedding and we wore gray dresses. It made everything else pop, color wise. Our shoes and bouquets. I was pleasently surprised.

I love the grey! and love the idea of having the purple be present in the flowers and/or shoes.

I prefer the grey dresses because everyone I know has had a purple wedding lately. Purple is gorgeous, but I have yet to see bridesmaids in real life wearing grey and I think it would be a refreshing change and a colour that you won’t look back on and wonder why on earth you picked it lol. And it’s soo easy to match things to!
