    EDIT: Ok, cool, I see the poll now!

    I like the idea of yellow for a summer wedding as I think the grey will be a bit too heavy. But I like grey dresses more. Sorry, I’m no use!!

    I would have grey dresses with bright shoes, necklaces and flowers. Best of both worlds?

    Also depends on your maids. Yellow can be a difficult colour for some girls to pull off.

    You could do your Maid/Matron of Honor in one color and the other girls in the other, and maybe have sashes of the opposite color or something?

    I prefer the yellow one though!

    Yellow is a very hard color for many women to wear.

    I think either would work! I love both of your inspiration pics.

    Those were the colors I used too! I did my Maid/Matron of Honor in yellow and the others in gray. I used a darker yellow, but here’s a pic of our wedding party so you can see

    I love them both!!  I say yellow looks best on tanned skin.

    @taylor.ashleys:  

    Do the bridesmaids dresses look purple to anyone else?

    LOVE the colours by the way. Yellow and grey are lovely together!

    Gray is a neutral, much like a tan, white, or dark blue/black! I think it’s totally fine for summer – I wear gray all the time in summer!

    I love the color yellow, but I think it may be a hard color for people to wear. It makes some people look sickly. It may depend on your bridesmaids’ skin tones as to which colors will look best.

    I think gray is easier to wear and more likely to be worn again.

    It’s also more classic, and less likely to feel dated in a few years.

    My vote is gray. That dress is beautiful!

    Yellow is one of my favorite colors, but I love the gray/silver dress you posted as an example (I know that’s not actually a contender for your bridesmaids’ dress, but I really like it.)  What is stopping me from saying gray is that you plan to have the groomsmen in gray. I am not a fan of a mostly gray wedding-color palette, as I don’t think it will have enough color or contrast.  Would you consider having all of the groomsmen in black, all of the bridesmaids’ in gray, and having yellow represented strongly in your bridesmaids’ bouquets and the men’s boutineers?

    @BerryBerry:  They DO have a purple undertone which I almost panicked about when they came in, but ended up matching the gray ties perfectly!
