Something sleek and long to balance out the frothiness of your skirt? I like the idea of black. It keeps the different colors of the sparkles and skirt on your dress from competing with anything, especially when you imagine flowers in front of all the dresses. Or, would a deeper shade of the lilac on your skirt match the rest of your color scheme? A deep plum would be pretty next to your dress.

Why not go the Adrianna Papel route… I feel like everyone wears those dresses but she has so many in the colors you want with lots of beading that would compliment your dress!

Pardon how blurry the above photo is. I was planning on an ivory  dress and mint bridesmaid dresses. I ended up choosing this moscoto with ivory lace dress and mint just looked wrong with it. We toned the mint down with this light green bridesmaid dress.

bluebee19 :  Well your dress does not really seem like lace? It’s just a lattice/floral design with a ton of beading and all. Which is why I mentioned the beaded dresses like http://www.adriannapapell.com/dresses/beaded-blouson-gown-887873497898.html#start=4

Otherwise I would focus on the bottom of your dress and the fabric that it is and have your girls go that route- even David’s has dresses now that are mesh instead of chiffon. I wouldn’t have your girls in silk/satin though especially if it’s in the summer. 

Are you wanting them in long/short dresses? If you’re fine with short- why not use fun tulle skirts with matching tops? Summer/flirty- similar to your feel but different.

bluebee19 :  Royal Blue would look amazing with your dress!! It would really make you stand out next to your girls.

I had a blush dress for my wedding and my girls wore gray. It looked pretty but I didn’t feel like I stood out the way I should have.

bluebee19 :  It totally goes….

Black goes more for the colder weather feel compared to a gary/brown.

bluebee19 : My dresses were royal blue and black, and looked awesome.  Royal blue is really different from navy, which a lot of people won’t use with black.

My girls wore champagne. My dress was champagne and ivory. A couple of them are quite fair as well. With lovely makeup and their hair done, they all looked perfect!
