Wedding Colors!!
Posted: Mar 4, 2011 2:18 PM

My Fiance and I are getting married in September 2011. He is in the Air Force and so we will be getting married at his bases chapel. He is going to be wearing his mess dress, which is a navy blue, my dress is ivory. We picked purple and silver for our colors. The boquets and bootineers will be white roses, with small purple flowers. So what color should I choose for the bridesmaids dresses? I don't want them to be too purpley because of their flowers are also purple. I have thought about doing a purple dress because the flowers have almost a reddish tone in spots, but i'm not sure.
I also thought maybe a silver dress, or maybe a black dress, that I can make a silver bow to wrap around the wasit. Is purple and silver okay with his blue uniform?? help! lol

I think your colors sound beautiful, and I think purple dresses would look awesome with the blue suits. I would steer away from black if you could, or your wedding might end up looking like a bruise :) Purple can look good on just about anyone though, so I'd go with it!

I like the silver w/purple sash. I would not worry about his Mess Dress, unless the groomsmen will be wearing it also. In that case you can take his uniform with you when you go dress shopping.

Silver with a purple sash would be very lovely.
