Needing Help with Dress Color

Hey there all :)

My wedding has actually came and went.  But I remember the great advice I got here, so I thought I might seek some more.

My husband will be a groomsman in a friend's wedding in early May.  It is semi-formal, and an evening outside wedding at a riverfront.  My dilemma is what color dress I should pick to wear.  I don't want to be mistaken as part of the female side of the wedding party, so silver / grey is out.  I would like to complement my husband, who will be in black, white, and dark blue (David's Bridal Marine).  So a mint green is out (was next on my list).  I know I could wear black, but I was hoping to snag a color without being gaudy and out there.

Any suggestions are appreciated!  I really like this couple, and want their wedding to look lovely ... so don't want to pick and outfit that clashes.

    You could do dark fuchsia, kelly green, eggplant, or coral.  I mean that blue color is pretty much navy blue so you could go with almost anything.

    OH i'm such a huge fan of navy and coral :) if you have a coral dress, i choose that! Are you choosing from something in your closet? What are your options? Otherwise, go buy coral IMO!

    I don;t think you have to worry about looking like a bridesmaid, so you can wear silver/grey if you want to.  Other suggestions: navy, a lighter shade or blue, pink, coral, gold, peach, yellow, plum, violet, or jade.

  • I'll be buying a dress, so I want to choose the color first.  I have never worn coral before, so I am very open to that idea, since I want to wear something fresh, and new for me.  I also like the idea of a lighter blue or plum.

    Now to find a store that sells dresses for a reasonable price .....

    Thanks so much! :)
  • Why can't you wear mint great with his navy/black/white? I think that would look great together!
