    I think it would work as long as the junior bridesmaids’ dresses are the same color — but a different, lighter tone of that color.  For example, I would not have bridesmaids’ dresses that are more purple-pink and junior bridesmaids dresses that are more peachy-coral-pink.  I know you said that the bridesmaids dress that you posted is not true to color, but I would contact the companies to obtain swatches of each dress you’re considering before ordering something. However, if time is of the essence, and you’re looking at junior bridesmaids’ dresses from Nordstrom, you may actually be able to return them if you take one to the store where you’re purchasing the bridesmaids’ dresses and you find that the colors clash.

    It’s also perfect for your Flower Girl to wear ivory, since she, ideally, should match you and not the rest of the women in the bridal party.

    Finally, if you can’t find a lighter shade of pink that works with your pink bridesmaids’ gowns, its fine to choose another color for your junior bridesmaids.  I was in a friend’s wedding, and she had the bridesmaids in burgundy, the junior bridesmaid in champagne, and her two flower girls in ivory.

    ETA: I just noticed your comment that the only other dresses you can find for the junior bridesmaids in the exact same fabric and color as your bridesmaids’ dresses are strapless gowns. I actually had this same issue, and we had the vendor add spaghetti straps on the junior bridesmaids’ gowns. I was like your Fiance, and there was no way I was putting girls ages 10 and 13 in strapless gowns.

    Those were Julia Robert’s two colours in STEEL MAGNOLIAS (Blush and Bashful), Sally Field commented, her colours are pink and pink!  Sounds lovely,
