Grey may not be the color that immediately comes to mind when you think of a wedding, but it can certainly look stunning on your bridesmaids combined with the right decor and accessories. I especially like grey in a softer color, but a slate grey is also a popular choice.
Grey looks amazing when combined with bright colors in yellow and purple, or for a more romantic-chic feel, matching a soft grey with a blush pink is also gorgeous. Play up your accent colors in your bouquets, shoes, or sashes.
Also, consider letting your bridesmaid choose different dresses, but in the same color palette. This is a less uniform look than traditional, and allows your best girls to pick a silhouette that is not only flattering on them, but is also re-wearable for other occasions.

This is another one of Lela Rose’s designs: Style #LR120. I love the crinkled chiffon on this one – the material gives it an even softer feel. The hand worked origami trim is the perfect romantic touch. The satin belt placed at the natural waist makes this dress flattering on most figures. It is also available in other colors, including a darker charcoal grey:
