    You’re being crazy! 🙂  Black is a really popular color, so it’s no surprise that someone else, much less someone you know, is having the same color!  Now, it might be a little weird if, say, you both wanted peacock blue, but I think it would be totally fine!  My friend and I are both getting married (and BMs in each other’s weddings) and we’re using the same accent color.  I hadn’t originally planned on it but then I changed my colors entirely and the honeydew green was really the only color that went with my primary color (aubergine).  I say, do it!  No one can have too many LBDs!

    You’re wedding will be unique and yours no matter what the BMs are wearing.

    No problem!  All the other details of your wedding will make your’s (and your BM’s) unique in their own right!

    I think it’s fine, but I don’t know your friend. If I were you, I’d ask her–she’d probably feel better if you explained that you loved the idea too, tried looking into other options but felt this was the best for your wedding and your girls, too!

    Good luck!

    Since your friend’s wedding is still a year away, I don’t think you’re being crazy at all. If you still feel weird about it, you can always ask  your friend how she feels about it. Just say you tried to find other colors, but they just weren’t working, and you didn’t have any intention of copying her.

    If your friend is THAT bothered by it (which she shouldn’t be) then she can always switch her colors since she has so long to plan anyway. Plus, black is so neutral, that with different shoes, accessories and flowers, it can look completely different.

    Good for you for letting your BMs pick their own dresses!

    Black is very popular! No way should you think that you are copying your friend, plus I am sure that you will each have your own accent colours that will really set things apart!
