    @DomesticDiva:  I have an ivory-to-blush ombre dress and I loved the way the ivory chiffon dresses looked next to the soft muted tone.  Black was too harsh but the colour I liked and was looking at donna morgan – so the colour is ‘candlelight’, i was thinking a soft champagne colour.  The lilac does sorta look a bit gray above – not sure what it looks like in person, but it might be a way to have a dress that reads gray in certain lighting.

    I think the ivory would be a very cool twist on things.

    I think ivory would look great! I really don’t like the lilac/dusty purple, it seems very harsh next to blush

    @DomesticDiva:  I think ivory would be stunning AND you may have to tactfully veto your lover’s opinion on the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. If grey would look lovely, grey might have to be considered. 🙂

    Love the dress either way, I actually considered this for my bridesmaids. We went with AA Victorian Lilac and I saw Bill Levkoff Victorian Lilac in the store as well and they were pretty similar in person. A lot of my girls commented that the Victorian lilac did look kind of grey-ish but it is also still definitely “Purple”. I think the Ivory would really look nice with your dress too and would probably emphasize the “blushiness” of it too. If you’re worried about the girls wearing them again one idea that came to mind if they got ivory – they could dye them any color later on and wear them again! Maybe that’s a crazy idea?! I don’t know but I’m just throwing it out there. 

    Another Bee had posted this picture showing her Bill Levkoff Victorian Lilac dresses and how depending on the lighting they looked “lavender” to “grey”. 

    I think a light grey like you mentioned would also look beautiful, I found this photo of a bride in blush with grey BMs – on a beach! I think if she can pull it off on a beach you can pull if off in springtime.

    I also think the right shade of mint would look beautiful.

    Something along the lines of this inspiration.

    @DomesticDiva:  My dress is blush and we will be doing ivory dresses.  I love the whole reversed look.

    @DomesticDiva:  I would say before you look at Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, try on Blush dresses. I thought I wanted one and then I did not like the color on my skin. I did go with a gold-tone over blush so its still not ivory but just so you dont pick a completely different dress and then stress over your BMs

    I’m a firm believer that only the bride should wear white/ivory….. even if she doesn’t want to! I voted for the lilac mostly because of this reason, but also its just a soft feminine color that I think would accent the blush perfectly.

    @DomesticDiva:  Those are beautiful gowns!!!!! My gown was a champagne/blush color and my Bridesmaid or Best Man gowns were black with very colorful flowers Smile I definitely heard comments from others that black is for funerals, but at my wedding, I heard endless comments about how elegant my BMs were and everyone complimented our color scheme. I don’t have pictures of our bridal party yet because my wedding was just a few days ago, but maybe I can post photos soon!
