What colour bridesmaid dress?

Thu Jan 10, 2013 9:58 am

My dress has some pale pink in it (mainly ivory though)
what colour should I go for the bridesmaid dresses?
Thinking pale pink or grey...but open to more suggestions!
Edited to add the dress

Colour scheme? Um...pink I suppose. We don't really have one. It's a small destination wedding, 35 people, in Port Douglas.

I'm going bright pink for my bridesmaid dresses (our colour theme is chocolate, cream and pink). Bright pink is not to everyone's taste but I like the contrast of the pink dresses against my ivory gown :)

What looks good on your BMs? I think you need to take them shopping. Find a dress that looks good on them first, then decide if it clashes with your dress.

I work in bridal and have worked with similar bridal gowns. I like to pair them with either a very soft dove grey or a darker, carnation or rose pink.

I'd go with grey. And pink in your bouquets.

Oooh they all sound pretty! The dove grey would look lovely, you could include pale pink flowers in the bouquets if you wanted to bring the pink into it.

I think there grey or silver sounds lovely, but for something more dramatic you could go a beautiful navy or dark blue, or even black. My wedding gown was
pink (quite an obvious pink) and the bms wore black/pink..it looked fantastic.

If you went with navy they could have pale pink sashes and flowers with varying shades of pink in them. Also for something softer, pale green always looks
lovely with pink & ivory. :D

You could also have them in a chocolate brown, or a latte/mocha colour (like a pinky brown). My dress has a champagne sash, so I've decided to put the girls into different coloured browns, in dresses that each suit them, their body shape, and what they like. The boys are also wearing brown pants, and having cream/white shirts. Flowers are going to be yellow, green and ivory.
