I like it. I also like the idea of using the flowers in the bouquets to tie the color of your dress in with the color of the BM dresses.

sarah.ware:  If your dress is a pale blush like in the photo presented, I think it could work. I agree with boogiewoogies that you can use pale pink bouquets to make the look more consistent. I’d do a white or cream bouquet for you, but that’s my perference and you might have a different idea of what you want.

sarah.ware:  I really like it!

My dress is a pale peachy/blush colour and I’m getting darker coral/peachy dresses for my bridesmaids. My FI will be in a light powder grey suit, with the groomsmen in a much much darker charcoal grey. So I figured that the BMs in a darker shade similar to my dress would make us all go together well but also make sure that my FI and I stand out a bit from the crowd!

From the way the picture presents it I think it will look beautiful and that you are ok to keep the bridesmaid dresses as is. As PPs have said can work with the flowers to help bring the look together if need to at all.

boogiewoogies:  I second that! Flowers can really tie it all together. Even without them, I think the color combo looks great!

sarah.ware:  This is my color scheme too, with brown and gold, and I am having hardest time picturing it.

I would be a little worried about the combination. To me, coral generally looks very orangey, ESPECIALLY when you pair it with a pink tone. How dark are your bridesmaids’ coral dresses? Do you have pictures of their actual dresses?

I think it can look good.  It will also depend on how you tie it all together. . .like white roses with either gold or silver accents. Since you are already having all of that color,  you should only use neutral accents.
