I hope this isn’t too late, but let me share my own little experience with the Dessy dresses (specifically, the colors “rose pink” and “cameo.”).
I am having a garden wedding in May, and my wedding dress is a flowy, silk chiffon Monique Lhuillier. The whole aesthetic and vibe of the wedding reception is going to be very feminine and romantic. My color palette is pale blush, the palest of pink, ivory, and champagne/nude/light taupe.
For a long time, I was considering the Dessy Twist-Wrap dresses in rose pink. I had always invisioned my (7) bridesmaids wearing flowy, silk chiffon, pale pink dresses. I liked how the Twist-Wrap dress can be tied to suit a variety of styles and body types, however. Upon second thought, my Mom and I thought the matte jersey wasn’t our favorite fabric. I also started having second thoughts about the rose pink!
I went to Bella Bridesmaid to look again, and decided I liked many of Dessy’s short, silk-lux chiffon dresses. I still couldn’t decide between the blush pink and cameo colors, however! It took a long time to decide. However, after seeing the rose pink color next to a white wedding gown, it looked a little too bubblegum “Elle Woods” for my taste. The cameo, on the other hand, was perfect. It’s much more of a NUDE-pink, if that makes sense. No, it’s not officially considered a “pink” by Dessy – it’s considered more of a neutral. The store owner called it a light beige or even “champagne.” However, we all agreed that the cameo color looked much softer and more romantic next to the white wedding gown than the rose pink. I would highly recommend it! Seeing it in person, I would describe it as a very, very, VERY light nude, blush pink (almost more of a nude ballet shoe color). It is GORGEOUS. The rose is definitely pink, but just a soft bubblegum or baby pink. It was beautiful, too, but the “cameo” color was more “me.” I hope this helps!
Leggy, it looks like the “cameo” color is a light beige on the website, but I would agree it has a HINT of pink to it, after seeing it in person. I think we have the same taste! Glad you took a picture – it’s very true to how it looked to me in person. I went with Cameo, too, and am so glad I have! I think my girls will love it.
I am not a fan of the satin sash, and will probably tell my girls not to use or wear it. What do ya’ll think? I picked out 5-6 short, silk chiffon Dessy styles, and the bridesmaids can choose which style they want – but they will all be wearing the color “Cameo.” I like this, because each girl can pick a style that flatters her, but there is continuity with the color palette.
