Hi ladies, just looking for some advice on whether I could make a blush wedding dress work with my wedding colours? I decided on a fuchsia and lemon palette a while ago, and really don’t want to change that, but I’ve recently fallen in love with blush wedding dresses. Will this be too much of a clash?
I don’t think my bridesmaids will be wearing full fuchsia/yellow dresses – more likely black or cream with a coloured sash and colourful bouquet.
Some inspo pics:

Sorry, I think no too as your colors are too close to blush already

It depends on how ‘blush’ your dress is. Can you post a pic?

Well, the color combos kind of remind me of sorbet. It wouldn’t work for me, but if that is appealing to you, then I think it does go.

It is you day and you can wear whatever you want….I decided on a blush dress and they will wear fushia also. The only difference is we are using fushia tableclothes and napkins, silver chairs, chargers, and silver overlay.
I was never a big fan of white or cream dresses, I wanted a red dress but my FI hates red but loves pink so I decided to go with blush pink. He has no idea what color my dress is and it will be a complete shock to him.

I think it really depends on the shade of your dress, your venue and your overall style. Just in terms of matching, you could be fine with the shades of pink. What color are the men wearing?

It depends on the shades of fuschia and blush. If you choose the right shades that work together I think it could look great.

Meh it’ll look fine as long as your dress is not too pink. But even if it is…who cares?! Either:
1) you’ll not look blush pink enough to “match” your decor (and which guests actually expect a bride to match her decor?). If any of your guests actually tell you that you clash with your decor, they can go lick the curb.
2) you’ll coordinate/match with a blush pink gown, and everyone will ooh and aah over your hyper-detailed cleverness. You won’t have to worry about “blending in” with decor either since YOU and your hubs are the focus. Not the fuschia seating cards or the lemon chair covers.
See? Either way you’ll win.

@seree: I agree with PP that it really depends on what shade of blush your dress is. I think a light pink would work well (like Maggie Sottero Divina) but a Lazaro blush (more peachy) or a more nude/champagne blush would not work well with fuschia and lemon.

I think it will be too much

@Nic01: I haven’t chosen my dress yet, but as I am super pale all of the ivory, white, cream dresses I’ve tried on made me look really washed out (and I don’t want to get a fake tan). The blush dress was the only one I felt ‘pretty’ in!
@niasg1: That sounds awesome! I think I would love to surprise my fiance with a blush dress!
@queenbee33: Most likely grey. All of them are in another wedding before ours where they will be buying their suits, so I will just go with whatever colour they are.
@MlleFabuleux: Thanks for this 🙂 I think I get so caught up in what I ‘should’ be doing that I forget this day isn’t about nuances of colour shading and matching!
@somethingaquamarine: Definitely a ‘pinky’ blush, not nude/apricot!

I think it could depend on how much yellow is in the blush. If it veers too much toward peachy orange, it could look a little off.
