@PeachPineapple:  Before I read your post, I was going to suggest blush but I totally understand your BM’s concern about skin tone.  Too bad though!  That being said, I think the color in your dress is, as you asked, subtle enough that a deep purple would still look great!

@PeachPineapple:  I think floor-length chiffon flowy dresses in soft pastel colors would look gorgeous with your dress. And honestly, I think it would look incredible if your BMs wore different colors. My BMs wore 3 different colors – blush, sage green, and gray – and I loved how it turned out – it looked really natural and a little different from the typical matchy-matchy wedding parties.

As for overall color palette, spend some time on the website The Perfect Palette – there are so.many.ideas there!

Since you like soft muted colors, one idea is an ivory/gold/blush/mint palette –

How about champagne colored? It would go well and still be very elegant. Him Hjelm has a beautiful color called Shimmer.

Also, at the end of the day you have to pick what you like. It’s a little ridiculous for someone to say blush doesn’t look good on them and they won’t wear it.

I agree – I thinka  dark purple would look fine. I don’t think it would clash – it’s not mixing tones and I am pretty sure I have been wearing pink and purple together since I was two monthes old – lol

@PeachPineapple:  What about grey? It looks beautiful paired with blush!


You would go with light or dark whichever you prefer. I love blush thou and think that would be fabulous with your dress…..blush usually loosk great on everyone….hate to hear your 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man is giving you a hard time about wearing it…..


As far as style wise since your BMs are all different sizes, I’d say maybe something flowy…..maybe chiffon. I’d stay away from satin b/c it is less flattering.

@PeachPineapple:  yep, I always love how blush looks in inspiration photos, but I know it would make me look so washed out haha! I also love weddingbound’s suggestion of grey!
