For most brides, the white wedding dress is non-negotiable. It’s traditional. It’s gorgeous. And if you’ve been dreaming of your wedding day since you were a little girl, you’ve probably pictured yourself in a white dress.
But if you’re an unconventional, modern bride, you may be taking the untraditional route and wearing a grey wedding dress instead.
Grey wedding dresses are trending, and we’re seeing more and more brides pass on white in favor of wearing different shades of grey.
Which leads us to the question of the day:
If the bride wears grey, what color should the bridesmaids wear?
Don’t worry, there are PLENTY of colors that go with grey that you can dress your bridesmaids in.
Ready for some inspiration?
Here are 11 bridesmaid dresses that will coordinate perfectly with your grey bridal dress.
Grey Bridesmaid Dresses
There are endless shades of grey on the color spectrum, so you just might want to dress your bridesmaids in grey as well!
Put your bridesmaids in a shade of grey that’s considerably lighter or darker than your wedding gown. For example, if you’re wearing a light grey dress, have them wear dark grey or vice versa.
Prefer a more monochromatic look? Opt for bridesmaid dresses that are almost the same color as your dress.
Can’t settle on one specific shade? Put them in different tones of grey. Subtly different shades can make for a gorgeous mix-and-match bridal party.
