Response: Hello Sherry, You can choose any color you like for the bridesmaids. If you like a dark color, such as black or navy blue, choose a dress in a style that looks cool, such as a tea length one with spaghetti straps. Then, use lighter colors for the flowers and centerpieces. I am not sure what you mean by two color motifs or where you would use them. You should use the same colors for the ceremony and the reception for consistency, but you can vary the amounts of the colors.
If you prefer lighter colors for the bridesmaids, then use a darker color for the flowers and in the centerpieces. You dont want everything to be pale.
