I have the bridesmaid dresses that I love. It’s Bari Jay. Now I need some help deiciding on the colour. Originally I wanted a charcoal/dark grey colour. The colour shadow which is the grey colour is a lot lighter when you see it in person. I’m not sure if I should go with the grey or the black. My wedding is in August! Help

What are your other colors? What’s your venue like? Is your ceremony/reception indoors or outdoors?

I absolutely LOVE that dress!! Your bridesmaids will adore you, because if I was one of them I would want to wear it again. I never was a fan of black for bridesmaids or even for mothers of the bride/groom, as I think its too drab and down for a wedding. However, I know many brides are using black dresses nowadays. I think the grey is stunning!

Definitely the grey! Black is so overdone. I think alot of brides choose black so that their bridesmaids can wear the dress again but they could absolutely wear a grey dress again and still be a little unique.

I love the dress! Super cute. What are your other colors? It’s hard to choose unless we know what else you’re planning. For August I think Charcoal just generally, but it’s hard to say.

My other colour is pink. My flowers are also all pink. The ceremony is at a catholic church and the reception is at a nice elegant golf course. It’s all indoors except for pictures!

I prefer the grey. Love that dress. It was my 1st pick for bridesmaids dresses but I have a busty girl who didn’t think it would flatter her. I loved it so much I wanted it in coral for my rehearsal dinner dress, lol. You have great taste!

Grey!! I would go w/the Grey but then again my colors are grey and two shades of pink. It looks better than the black for an Aug. wedding.

I love the grey!! I agree that black is actually becoming over done now! Grey and pink will look AMAZING.

I like the grey. It looks like a soft dress so I would go with the softer color. I really like it! It will also look really nice with pink.

I just wrote to you on another post, but we picked the same dress for my girls! We originally had a different dress picked out, but once everyone tried it on it didn’t flatter them all. But this one so does!
Here are the flowers I’ll be having my florist do: But yeah I say go with the grey of course!

Both colors are beautiful and classy, but I’d go with the grey unless your wedding is going to be super formal. Black for an August wedding seems a bit harsh, plus grey tends to be more flattering on most skintones (especially pale girls).
Beautiful dress choice! I’m going to be my sister’s Maid of Honor and as the only bridesmaid I get to choose whatever I’d like. I may go with that style! Thanks for sharing.

I love Grey and Pink! 🙂 But I think the Pink against Black would POP and the black is alway elegant. Especially if its not the darker grey you were hoping for! Good Luck!

Thanks ladies for all your input. I have decided to get the grey dress. I will be ordering them this weekend!
Now what colour shoes would go with it? I’m thinking black strappy sandals may look good with some black jewellery to match. Let me know if you guys think any other colours would go!
