Finding the right color scheme for your wedding is always a challenge! In addition to choosing the perfect color palette for your decor, you need to make sure the bridesmaids don’t clash with the bouquets or blend into the tablecloths! When it came down to choosing your colors, did you start with your wedding party’s attire and then build the rest of your palette? Or did you pick your wedding colors first and then decide which hue your bridesmaids would wear?

Which color choice came first for you - your wedding colors or the bridesmaids dresses?

    Wedding colors (dusty blue and blush) first, then searched for dress options that fit with the color scheme!

    I knew we were going to get our dresses from Azazie. I knew I was going to let them choose their own style. But It took me a LONG time to decide on color. It was actually a last minute (kinda) decision to switch from light grey to dusty purple, but I'm so glad we did!

    We chose the wedding colors first and then based the bridesmaids dresses off of that!

    I choose wedding colors first! I had an idea of florals I wanted that could go with multiple deep colors for fall then I narrowed down to the bridesmaid dress color.

    I chose “moonstone” from Brideside, which is a shade of dusty blue! I think (hope!) it will look beautiful with the white/ivory/blush floral color scheme Smiley smile
