Bridal Party Attire

I am getting married next September and I can not pick what colors I want my bridesmaids to be in! Our wedding colors are Navy, Lilac, Grey and Gold. My future husband is to wear a Navy blue suit with the groomsmen wearing grey suits. Originally I was going to have my girls wear, navy blue but with Brian wearing navy I wasn't sure. Then I was going to have the girls wear lilac, but am considered it would just wash out everyone and no one seemed thrilled at the color I picked. Then I was thinking they could wear grey .... Long story short I am all over the place and I have 0 idea what to do!!!!

Would it be weird to have my husband and bridesmaids in the same color? I seriously have no idea!!!!! HELP!!!!!

    As soon as I started reading your post, I was originally thinking lilac. I'm still thinking lilac. I don't think it's weird to have your husband and one color and your bridesmaids also in a similar color.but I think it seems like lilac would be the best option in this case. Otherwise it's going to be too much of one color. Best of luck

    I would do Lilac. There's some gorgeous color options on Azazie. If your girls don't like the Lilac color.. then what about the color "wisteria" or "iris"? they are still in the same color family. OR, there's a color called "dusk" which is almost a gray/purple- could work nicely in combo with the grooms suits.

    I am not a fan of the groom in a different color suit, but I like lilac with gray so that's probably what I would.

    I echo lilac! I put my girls in champagne dresses, basically a very neutral light beige, and was terrified they'd either look like potatoes or washed out. After actually trying some dress colors on with them, I feel so much better! Play around with a few different shade options, maybe you just haven't found the right one yet.

    I ended up using Brideside for my dresses - the actual brideside line is reasonably affordable ($150) with lots of color options. Plus for my BMs that weren't located near a physical store, they were able to have dresses shipped to try on at home.
    FSIL is a wedding photographer and she also recommended using Birdy Grey. She said they look great in photos and they're all under $99. They have a cool silvery gray color.
    Last rec: I just bought a BM dress for my friend's wedding from Lulu's. I don't know how many color options you'd have but after using a coupon code I think I ended up paying about $65 total and was extremely impressed by the quality.

    Lilac! My friend did it for her wedding and groomsmen were in grey. I think it looked great!
