I actually think yellow is the worst. Not that it's a bad color, it's just hard to pick a shade that everyone looks good in; depending on your skin tone, it can make you look really bad.

Just about any color (except teal-bleh) can look really good if done in the right dress style. I agree though, white is only for the bride. *Holleywood*

I love all things pink but can't stand fuschia especially for a wedding.

im wearing hot purple satin in a wedding this august. it's awful, and i love purple. i don't think black, brown, or red (any shade) are appropriate for weddings...but then i don't think bare shoulders are, either. call me old fashioned!

My girls were in purples! Most of these just sound awful to me! Yeck. *I reject your reality and substitute my own*

A neon lime green sounds pretty bad to me. My cousin is a bridesmaid in July and just saw her lime green bridesmaid dress... sigh.

I don't think there's such a thing as bad color, but there ARE bad silhouettes and bad prints... that being said, I think anything neon (particularly green and orange) would be a sad state of affairs for the poor bridesmaids that have to don it.

Can I choose all of the above? No matter what, the bridesmaids dresses will look terrible. I've never known it to be otherwise. And no matter what, you'll never want to wear it again. The bridesmaid is making the same style of investment as the bride.

I think the dresses above are hideous because of the hem or lack there of. I however don't think white is appropriate choice for anyone attending a wedding. I am also not a big fan of hunter green for a wedding. I just don't like how it makes a lot of people look.

Whatever color the bride and groom chooses. But this red, does not look like a wedding at all.

I like the gowns/dresses to at least all be the same color. It is a freakin wedding. But I think hte bride should pick a color that looks good on everyone, and a re wearable dress. But fuschia sounds really tacky, 80s prom to me, so that.

wow the reD!! it's so unfortunate for the bridesmaids. i am going to be a bridesmaid next Jan, and the color of the dress is a pale turqouise color. hmm... it's so not my color, but i guess i have to comply. haha...

The Red isn't appealing to Me!!But It depends on what the Bride wants, I've seen all colors but Red at A Wedding!!

I think it totally depends on each person -- while I don't like the style, I love the color of the red dresses above and would be more than willing to wear the dress. However, I would gag if anyone ever asked me to wear any shade of pink (because I hate the color) or pale green (because it makes me look green). My bridesmaids are all wearing floor length black dresses, and they can all pull off black well, plus have said that they will wear the dress again if they get it shortened.

The red is pretty nasty, but I agree with colorme about pink. My sister had her bridesmaid and me wear whatever we wanted, too. She was happy with our choices and so were we.

Pink, although that bright red in the picture is pretty gaudy too. I told my two bridesmaids to wear whatever the hell they wanted, just no blue and keep it pastel.
