@upallnight:  I’m also doing sunflowers and I’m doing black dresses because all my bridesmaids are far away from each other, and most from me. Also, our wedding colors are black and white because I am planning the wedding long distance and don’t want to try to match things. That being said, I think purple will look lovely, black might be less of a headache though, depending on what effort you want to put into it.

I love color, but that’s just my personal preference.

I think purple dresses. I don’t think purple is too hard to find. Like this:

I love eggplant purple, and I think it’s universally flattering. I have an eggplant dress that I wore as a bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding, and I would certainly wear it again. I think the style of the dress is more important than the color as far as rewearing is concerned.

I am also doing non-matching bridesmaids dresses. I made a pinterest board to illustrate the dresses that I would choose so that they could see the formality, color range, and general vibe of what I was looking for.They finally picked dresses, but it was a pain getting here and I haven’t seen the results together yet, so I don’t know ultimately how it has turned out. My best advice would be to be very specific about what you want. You could potentially even just pick out options for them. 

I would go with purple because of the setting, it will be more difficult, but even different blacks aren’t really the same. Also, I would guess that they would be able to find a dress that they wouldn’t mind wearing again since they are choosing it. Plus if your wedding is casual, it’s much easier to find occasions to rewear that type of dress.

Personally, I would go with the black dresses. I’ve reworn my black bridesmaid dress several times. And I think the sunflowers would really pop.

I like the purple personally (but its also my favorite color). I think the purple would look the best and be an added pop of color which would look really pretty.

If your bridesmaids live far away from each other though, black might be easier since it would be hard to find purples that match or somewhat match.

And who says a bridesmaid can’t ever wear a purple dress again?!
