I’m going out with my 3 BMs on Tuesday evening and we’ve narrowed it down to 3 dresses…..but I’m still stuck between 2 colours. Please help me choose a colour. I had been thinking I’d go with the lighter blue (Malibu on the David’s Bridal website) but I’m not sure anymore. Could it seem a little “young” for me (I just turned 30)? Does the tie look a bit fruity on the guys?
I do like it because it’s more “summer-y”, but the darker blue (Horizon on the DB website) just seems like a safer bet and might photograph better. I really just like them both.
So, could you please help me decide?
FWIW, our flowers will be white and blue (not sure what shades or flowers yet, I’m not too picky) and the wedding will be on June 2 but will be mostly indoors. The girls range between age 27-31 years old from a size 0 to maybe an 8 (they are all slim). Fiance says he doesn’t care what colour tie the men end up with and to get whatever we like. The girls like both colours and say it’s up to me. Oh, and I’ll be trying to get them white cardigans and a blue one for me. 🙂
Here’s our “picture” in Malibu:
And in Horizon:

I personally like the Malibu better, but I might be biased because its close to one of the colors we used in our wedding 🙂

I think I like the darker color more, it seems a little more classic. I aslo think it might give you more options with flowers. Are you set on the white sash for the MOH?

I think I like the Horizon blue better. For some reason the other one feels very beachy to me…
Both are pretty, though.

@ieatunicorns: Nope, not set on the white sash at all. We’re just trying to do something to make her stand out besides changing her bouquet. Ideas are welcomed!

I said darker blue simply because I think most people’s skin tones go better with a deeper color like that. For June I think it would be perfect, especially since it’s inside.

I personally like the darker color, but that’s probably because I chose darker blue for my girls… I don’t think you can go wrong with either… Good luck!

@Juliepants: Not that it looks bad by any means,but I think doing something a little bit different with her jewelry would give her a little bit different look, but still keep them in the same dress. I don’t know if I have really ever noticed a different sash in real life or not, but for some reason on the DB mock ups it just always sticks out.

I like the darker blue…seems more elegant to me!

@ieatunicorns: Ok, thank you for your advice! I’ll have to check out what it looks like in person first and see what she wants to do. She’s the one who has to wear it afterall!

I chose the darker blue (Horizon). The Malibu reminds me of the beach, which isn’t a bad thing, but might not go with your venue.

I LOVE the darker blue. I think it’s so classy and more timeless.
The lighter blue makes me think of Tiffany blue – which strikes me as more trendy than timeless.
The style of the dress vs. the color makes me think summer.
And, picking either color would be age appropriate, IMO.
