    I had my bridesmaids wear black, and Maid/Matron of Honor and junior bridesmaids wear silver. (MOH and JBs were my sister and his sisters.) It looked really nice and helped the sisters ‘stand out’. Maybe have your Maid/Matron of Honor wear black, and the others wear grey?

    I really like the grey because in that material, grey looks like silver or pewter which is so interesting.  I also like grey on younger girls.  Black might be too harsh for your pre-teens.

    By The Way – I also have a similar issue where my Maid/Matron of Honor wants to wear black – an off the shoulder that looks amazing on her.  I am putting my younger bridesmaid (13yrs) in another style in deep fushia.  So mixing can be great.

    Grey is REALLY in this year! As next year too.  I say go w/grey it looks good and you can have the girls wear colored shoes or silver.

    I would do a mixture.  I love the look of different colors together…fantastic! 🙂

    Cool beans. I think you should pick out your dress before you decide – picking Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses that complement/match you might significantly impact your decisions!

    @NotYourTypicalBride: Exactly what I was going to suggest!

    Personally, I’d rather the gray, because who doesn’t already own a LBD? If I were in a wedding, I wouldn’t necessary want another LBD to add to my collection – but a LGD might get worn again, because I don’t already own a gray dress!

    Maybe the younger girls can wear a sash in a blue color.

    Maybe have Maid/Matron of Honor and JB in black and other 2 girls in grey… you get both and then the Maid/Matron of Honor stands out with her different color and the JB will be completely different than Bridesmaid or Best Man
