    Hi all! Happy Monday!

    I am having a bit of a 'mare when it comes to colour co-ordination and was wanting some advice please...

    We are having a BBQ for our wedding breakfast rather than a formal sit down meal and so I am going for this look at the reception

    What colours would you suggest for bridesmaids dresses that would tie in with the theme? One bridesmaid is very dark haired with fair skin who usually wears red and dark colours and the other is a true English rose who mainly wears pastels and light colours.
    What are your thoughts also on flowers? My dress is "Courtney" by Maggie Sottero.

    Thanks in advance xx

    If you're going with grey and pink I would put the English rose one in pink and the dark-haired one in grey, perhaps with a sash or something in the other colour for contrast whilst further enforcing the colour scheme.

    Thanks Showgirl but it's more red and dark blue- not the best pic sorry. Had it in my mind that both BMs should be in the same colour?

    Ah I thought it was pink and grey till I looked closer and saw it was checkered. Then why not red or dark blue if that's what you're going for? You can have BM's in the same colour and the flowers in the other or if you're having a flowergirl/page boy have their dress/dress sash or tie in the opposite colour?

    i thought it was pink and grey too lol xD

    i dont think you can go wrong with dark blue, whatever your colouring, with red flowers? they will contrast lovely as well.
