joanna.ball.902: You coud switch things up and have the bridesmaids in ivory.

They can also wear lavender, pale blue, apricot, mint, dusty shale, white (like Pippa), a very soft butter yellow.

There are some ideas in these threads:

julies1949:  Oo I second your soft butter yellow idea, that sounds perfect ! My 2nd is choice lavender, followed by mint.

joanna.ball.902:  Veil-wise, I would tone the pink down with a white veil but perhaps dipped in pink at the ends so it blends into the dress?

I too am wearing a blush dress. My bridesmaids are going to be wearing hunters green.

I think Ivory, champagne or lavender would look wonderful though. Congrats on the engagment!<br /><br />For a veil I am wearing a blush veil. It looked better with my dress. Your dress could look better with white though! (I also LOVE that line of wedding dresses…especially in the blush)

joanna.ball.902:  maybe consider a dusty purple for bridesmaids against your blush dress? if you don’t like that, try looking http://www.theperfectpalette.com/  – there are plenty of ideas there. also definitely a blush veil to match your gown.

I think the veil’s color depends on the shade of blush you’re wearing. Aside from the possibility of looking too “matchy-matchy” (which you may or may not like), I think having a blush veil with a blush dress could get tricky; you’d have to see how your dress’ color matches with the veil’s shade of blush. However, most ivory veils work well with blush dresses, so I think it’s a safer bet. I’m wearing a blush dress myself, but since it’s a very subtle shade of blush & my dress has an ivory lace overlay, I chose an ivory veil. It’s perfect!
