I love a blush dress too, as long as it’s not too saccharine/candy a shade of pink. I like the monochromatic look for the wedding party (pale pink, nude, peach, maybe a soft lilac) or perhaps a soft dove grey/charcoal.

Ehh, I’m not a big fan of blush, but I don’t think tacky is the right word. It’s just not my style, I’m a bit more traditional and it doesn’t strike me as a “wedding” dress. I’m also not convinced it’s a bridal trend that here to stay (yes I know everything will look dated in 20 years but some things will look dated sooner than that!)

@Roxykitten:  I think the dress in the picture you posted is beautiful, and I definitely don’t think blush wedding gowns are tacky!

I will say, though, I wouldn’t choose to wear a blush dress myself.  I like pink (which is kind of funny since I don’t consider myself a girly girl at all, and that’s typically a “girly” color), but I didn’t want a pink wedding dress.  I actually didn’t want pink in our color scheme at all since my fiance isn’t a fan of the color.  That was just a personal choice, though, and I wouldn’t judge someone for choosing to use pink in their wedding (whether for their dress, bridesmaid dresses, flowers, etc.).

I think if you go with a blush dress you should choose very neutral colors for the bridesmaids.  Depending on the overall look you’re going for, I’d say either go dark (black or charcoal grey) or light (ivory or champagne).

I had a White by Vera Wang blush dress and i love it! And everybody else loved it! I say if it reflects who you are, go for it. Your family and friends and all of your guests know you and if it fits you and your personality, they will for sure love it too! My girls wore coral, almost candy red, dresses.

Here are some guest photos from our wedding:

@Roxykitten:  the dress is pretty similar and a few hundred dollars less. i think i like the shape a little more, too.

I wouldn’t wear blush myself (I never wear pastels) but I love it on a lot of other people.

It’s a matter of picking the right shade though. There’s quite a lot of different types of blush and they can look great or awful depending on your skin tones.

In some lights, the Maggie Divina looks like it has peach tones to it, meaning that it probably isn’t the best choice for cool-toned skin. 

I think the one you posted is a warm-toned pink too – the model wearing it has warm tones – so I think you would look good in it if you have warm tones. (A way to tell is whether you normally prefer silver or gold jewellery. If it’s silver, then you are cool-toned. Gold = warm tones.)

The one summerSmile posted has cool tones, so would look different.

As for bridesmaids, I second the PPs choices of grey or a navy with grey tones to it (like a slate navy). I think mint green could also work. I would stay away from nude unless you are sure that it actually suits all your BMs (it looks better on warm-toned girls and those with a bit of a tan).

I love blush dresses and I think they are so romantic looking. Like you, I felt Like blush complimented my skin tone more than ivory.. I was surprised bc I am usually pretty traditional. Even if I had gotten my dress in ivory, 10 years from now it would probably still look ridiculous to other people so I’m not too worried about that. 

Here is my dress (haven’t gotten alterations yet so it’s a bit big)

I am very pale with strawberry blonde hair and white dresses looked awful on me. I ended up with an alabaster dress.

I personally wouldn’t have chosen pink/blush simply because I don’t like the colour pink at all, but if you do..then go for it! Don’t opt for white simply because you think you HAVE to in order to feel bridal.
