I’ll try to make this quick. My wedding color palette was/is greys, pink, and peach colors, soft and romantic. I ordered my bridesmaids’s dresses about 2 weeks ago and chose the color Rosepetal, I thought petal pink was too light and I didn’t want it to look too close to white and I thought the pewter grey might be too drab for a summer wedding with the guys wearing dark colors and all.
Now Im starting to really dislike rose petal. It is VERY pink and frustrating to combine with pretty flowers (I would be doing very pale bouquets). I also feel like it doesn’t really allow for me to use peach (without looking like a crazy pink peach wedding I would have planned as a five year old lol).
I am considering calling the store I ordered from and asking/begging me to let me change the color to the pewter/grey. It would let the flowers pop and then the bridesmiads could wear a blush heel. Does anyone have ADVICE or PICTURES of real brides in rose petal or pewter?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Pewter: Rose Petal (a bit far away):
Also, blush pink roses look good with a rose pink chiffon:

OP, my palette was the same as yours (I have sinced modified it to remove the pinks altogether). I wanted really classy blush and greys and I was considering petal pink until I saw how white it looks in pictures (I only had the swatch in the store). I decided to go with the pewter because the other shades of pink were just too much pink.
My wedding is in November though, in a very modern resort filled with shades of grey and tans (hence my color palate change, the pink clashes and I’m crazy. Now it’s shades of greys, and tans), so the pewter really works. But I think the petal pink might be nice for summer. Would you consider going with more subtle flower colors? I’m going with only shades of white, off white, ivory, cream, etc (you would want to add some blush off-whites as well). I think that would be lovely with the pink dresses and give the wedding more of a classy understated look instead of OMG PINK.

I just got some of my pictures back so I thought I’d share some of my bridesmaid’s in their Bill Levkoff Rospetal Dresses! When I first got them in, I was kind of iffy on the color, because I wanted it to be a bit more mauve-ish. Looking at these pictures though I like it! I would say it looks a little more muted in the natural light but maybe looks a little darker in dimmer/indoor lighting.

@Bethanybee: they look amazing, especially against the colours in the bouquets!
