I like the color you chose! And I think if everything else is a softer color then the maids will really stand out but that could be good or bad depending on what you want. If you want everything to be a little softer and romantic I would suggest a lighter pink or soft coral color. I still think the bright pink is very pretty though 🙂

Some thoughts:

Have you seen an actual fabric swatch?  Sometimes colors are slightly misrepresented online.

I think it’s difficult to pull off hot pink with “soft romantic/classic/timeless”, but that is just my opinion and YMMV.

Online the watermelon color is a real eye-grabbing color for July and works with the season.

I know it’s not fitting your vision, but the same dress in Cornflower or Amethyst would seem more fitting to my eye for the “soft floral romantic” thing.  Jim Hjelm did a lot of his dress shoots with a similar theme/idea last year, so maybe take a look at some of those for ideas.

@skylar1224:  I like the blush/rose flowers in the bouquet (with the ivories and whites and other colors in the arrangements – those are gorgeous!!) with rose-colored Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses – rose is such a nice, soft color that looks good on everyone.

That dress you picked out is so lovely!! It’s really hard to tell from online (because colors seem to always look different in-person) but I would guess that sherbert is brighter, and rose is more muted – and I would pick rose if you want a soft, romantic look.
