My girls wore the JCrew Heidi long dresses that you have pictured (in a different color) and I’m wearing the JCrew Megan long dress in Dusty Shale – the color you’ve posted – in a wedding in October. Groomsmen wore/are wearing standard black tuxedos with the long silk chiffon dresses.

krismarch2 :  There are lots of different options with dusty shale dresses available in pics online.

various greys

For a summer wedding, I would choose navy blue, a bit brighter blue or light grey.

Depending on the time of year, I would say light grey or charcoal grey…I think a light cool-toned grey would be great for keeping with the airy icy colour palette 🙂 Charcoal grey would work for cooler months or for giving some drama / dimension.

I would do navy or gray! I think navy would look great with that color dress.

krismarch2 :  I don’t mind the grey, but the choice of shirt color makes this a rather heavy look for a summer wedding.

JCP, Sears and Macy’s all have suit separates where the groom could choose the jacket and pants and the groomsmen, the vest and pants. I would lighten up the shirt to white or perhaps a gingham check to coordinate with the BM’s dresses.


 Your men can save a lot of money if you find something in this year’s summer stock on sale.

Those are almost the exact bridesmaid dresses I want too! I was going to do j.Crew dusty shale, or a similar color (sage, celadon, mint) from anothe company embarassed

I love the light and dark grey suggestions!
