Another topic of heated discussion during the wedding planning process (we’ve already covered the dreaded guest list) is the bridesmaids dresses. The more bridesmaids you have the more voices will have to be heard so consider your choices carefully and try your best to pick a dress that will at least placate them all.
Grey is an excellent choice for bridesmaids dress. It might sound a little dull but light bounces off pale grey tones beautifully and the pops of colour in the floral bouquets really stand out next to the shade. It doesn’t pin you down to a set selection of colours as grey pairs nicely with nearly other colour, check out our piece on colour palette trends for this autumn including grey and winter berries. Not to mention, it really pulls out the definition in your white wedding dress, and lets be honest, their sole purpose is really to support and make you look good. Okay we’re kidding (not really).
So we’ve pulled out some of the most stunning grey gowns that would suit any theme or budget. Whether you want full on ball gown on the cheap or a really luxe investment that’ll double up as their bridesmaids gifts (and all future birthday presents) we’ve scoured it out for you.
