I was initially thinking of a silver/platinum color for the brides maids

I like them in silver. Or platinum even.

I think having the maids in silver with dark flowers would be stunning!

I was thinking grey/silver as well, especially since the embroidery on your gown is silver.

I vote silver; definitely not light blue-it isn’t the most flattering hue on all body types. 🙂

I agree, silver is your best option.

I love the silver idea and your dress is absolutely stunning.

I agree with the ladies above.  Silver or plantinum would look great and compliment the details on your dress so well.

I agree with silver or grey. But, you could definitely do white!
I’ve seen this done before. A bride I know wore a pink dress and had all her bridesmaids in white. It was a beautiful wedding, so I’m sure no matter what you decide it will look great!

Keep in mind that many people cannot wear silver or platinum without looking washed out. The same goes for gold. Anyone can wear black although that may be too dark for what you are looking for. Dark purple would be fine.

Silver would be a stunning combination.

I think whatever color you decide to do, whether silver or blue or what-not, it should be a lighter color.  That will create more of a contrast against your dress, kind of like the reverse contrast to a white wedding dress against darker colors.

I vote silver or lighter blue.
