Thank you cake

biscuit enjoy your biscuit. I’d go for a dusty grey colour for bm’s, something OMG neutral. Your dress is gorgeous btw.

What season? Sage or mint would probably work well with what you've described.

SerendipityFelix Mon 12-Feb-18 21:07:37

Pale dove gray/silvery. Lovely.

UpstartCrow Mon 12-Feb-18 21:14:06

Pale green, like hex #B5D2B5

Which I've just realised is similar to the colour of the background of your post.

Sage/green is not what I would have thought in a million years.


I Think I like it grin

Ok sage green and perhaps dove grey. Would mh in sage and rest in grey work.

I'm so glad I braved posting.

The sage and green combo would be beautiful, especially with your blush dress. Go for it!

JontyDoggle37 Mon 12-Feb-18 21:19:11

Gah, sage and grey!!!🙄

Your dress is absolutely beautiful

Thank youflowers

I was looking for something cheaper but I kept coming back to this one.

We're having a registry office and hall reception but still wanted to feel wedding-ney with out being over dressed and I just love it so much

I figure it's cheaper then most dresses in bridal shops... well that's how I'm rationalisihing it in my head. wink

Silvery-grey? Pale lilac?

RosyPrimroseface Mon 12-Feb-18 21:36:46

my wedding was sort of dusty ballet slipper pink and pale green - and wood chairs/white flowers/candles etc. It was gorgeous!!

What colour is the groom’s suit/tie business?

HildaZelda Mon 12-Feb-18 21:49:46

I agree with pale grey/green. Your dress is stunning BTW :D

Thesmallthings Mon 12-Feb-18 21:53:18

rosey that sounds lovely.. I wasn't keen on having flowers but maybe a posey of them small airy white flowers. .. something breath? (Can you tell I have no clue what I'm doing?)

Groom wants a white suit... hadn't even thought of what colour tie.. what should it match ? My dress?

TheMadGardener Mon 12-Feb-18 21:55:35

Gypsophilia might be the flowers you are thinking of.

pilates Mon 12-Feb-18 21:56:46

I love your dress💕 pale green would compliment your dress

Thesmallthings Mon 12-Feb-18 21:58:29

themad I just Googled Gypsophilia and yes you are 100 percent correct baby breath.... Thank you flowers

tinyradish Mon 12-Feb-18 22:02:18

Your dress is stunning. I also first thought grey or maybe a pale lilac/purple colour?

RiojaHaze Mon 12-Feb-18 22:06:08

I'm having a combination of sage, mint, dark green and grey bridesmaid dresses.
I don't know what kind of dresses you want, but I got those dresses that you can wear about 20 different ways for £16 each from eBay. They're great quality and suit each bridesmaid really well, all of whom have very different body shapes.

Thesmallthings Mon 12-Feb-18 22:10:51

rio eBay/ other cheap shops is where I'm looking at, my bm are all different shapes and sizes so I'm glad to hear that they flatter all. I shall look up the dresses you mean.

Gaviscon pink is traditional gringrin.

meredintofpandiculation Mon 12-Feb-18 22:14:45

Gypsophila, also known as baby's breath

meredintofpandiculation Mon 12-Feb-18 22:16:26

Cross post. Don't you just love it when high frequency of replies makes you look an idiot?

Although you might like lilies of the valley, which have more scent, I think?
