What about a pale pink or even a champagne? Alfred Angelo also has a really pretty gold color that might be nice!

I love the idea of champagne or gold!  You’re an angel for not wanting to put your girls in yellow. My Maid/Matron of Honor is convinced that when her wedding rolls around we’re all going to be in yellow! 😛  And we’re all asian…not really too funny…

The “ivory” to me looks like a really light pink, but I suppose that could be my monitor….

I agree with @jo.lee that a pale pink would look nice with those colours, especially with antique gold accents. You could also do ivory & gold dresses (or gold with ivory trim if you don’t want them wearing a “white” shade). I don’t really think that gold is a very “yellow” colour, but I suppose it would depend if you could find dresses in a “non-yellow” shade or not.

@jo.lee: I agree, a pink, ivory or champagne would be lovely. Brown would go well with the pallet aswell but it’s a bit sombe for a spring wedding.

ETA: Your gown is beautiful btw!

I really like the blush pink, but if you and the girls aren’t into pink then I’d do a light champagne color. I had to wear a yellow bm dress and it was atriocious (her colors were yellow and silver). We all hated it, but wore it with a smile and didn’t complain. But we looked like ears of corn walking down that aisle!

I love the idea of blush pink Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. But dont worry about it not doing anything for them. I wore yellow as a Bridesmaid or Best Man and we all looked ok, and I’m just about as pale as they come.

if you dont want to do yellow gold or champagne is nice. My sis made us wear yellow and I was dreading it till we found our dress ( we got to pick) picture kate hudson on the cover of how to lose a guy in 10 days. It is SUCH a pretty dress. Our dresses were similar. I am darker skin tone and yellow looks great on me and my sis the other bm is fair skinned, looked great on her. Just a thought if you do stick with yellow. yellow can be scary or elegant.

I agree with PP that a blush pink or champagne would look good with your palette. I also really like the idea of a very pale, dusty blue, like super pale periwinkle- I think it would go nicely with the pale yellows and ivories. Like the blue color that’s on the top right corner of your color palette collage.

@Jenniphyr: The “ivory” on perfect palette always looks pink on my monitor also.

To the OP:You could find a dress that has ivory or cream on the bodice and yellow on the skirt. More women can wear yellow if it is not near their face.

Dessy has this dress:

A beautiful cornflower blue would look lovely against the neutral and yellow/gold/ivory canvas of your wedding colors.

I think you should go with a grey bridesmaid dress  🙂

I vote grey or pink!

 

On a side note, I LOVE your wedding dress!

You could also  give your girls paint chips that reflect your color palette and let them choose their own dresses with some guidelines re fabric and style from you.

A variety of soft prints would be lovely:

This one is a brighter  but a great example of mismatched dresses with colors that link to a chosen palette
