Gray and Yellow!

Posted on December 28, 2010 by  Miss Eclectic Bride   //   3 Comments

I have known for quite some time that I want to choose one main color for my bridesmaids to wear, and then have them select a unique dress in a shade of that color. However, it has taken me forever to decide which hue to choose. Since my wedding colors are blue, yellow and red/orange/pink, I started with those options. Here was my thought process:

Blue. This classic color would be a great choice, but we are getting married in a light blue room and I do not want the wedding party to blend into the walls. Blue was a no-go.

Yellow. This is one of my all-time favorite colors, but I know it is not the most flattering on all skin tones. I want to make sure that the dress my bridesmaids purchase is something they might wear again, so I decided to save yellow for an accent color.

Red/orange/pink. If this color is too difficult for me to even put into words, I cannot imagine how hard/stressful it would be to find a dress in this hue.

With all three of our main wedding colors out, I decided to go with a neutral color. So, I am opting for my bridesmaids to wear dresses in a shade of gray. By adding yellow shoes and bright flowers, I hope the overall effect will look modern, pretty and summery. Here are some pictures that helped me make my final decision:

Speaking of bridesmaid fashion, I cannot wait to share my next post with you!

    I love this color combo! I have been trying to convince my friend (who is getting married in August) to do this.

    Hi Mia,
    It looks like Miss Eclectic Bride credited the dress as a “Sarah Seven” dress. Not sure of the exactly style number/name though.
