Are you sure they would look washed out? Rather, have they tried on the dress in that color already?

 

If you are considering one of the other colors: My bridesmaids are both very pale and they selected blush dresses that look amazing on both. The dress is actually from H&M and look like they are the same color as your third image.

Is it all your bridesmaids that are saying they’d look washed out? An idea would be to do the same dress in a few complimentary shades and have them wear different ones. I’ve seen this look great if done correctly, maybe ranging from a light apricot to a coral. My original colors were coral and ivory but I changed them cuz I wanted a more summery look. I think your colors are romantic, classic and really pretty!

That inspiration bouquet is GORGEOUS! If the girls are adamant about not wearing shrimp, I think the spice could work; you could work that color into accents like on the printed materials, the cake, maybe even a signature drink,, etc, and then keep the flowers to the more muted, softer pinks and peaches. But you and the girls should try to see the shrimp in person if that’s at all possible, because those computerized shades are often really off.

Btw, shrimp is about the worst name for a bridesmaid dress color I’ve heard.

I LOVE the shrimp color!  How will everyone be wearing their hair & makeup? I feel that hair & makeup play a HUGE role!  With good hair/makeup, it’ll look AMAZING!

Another user posted up pictures of their Alfred A. bridesmaid dress in the shrimp color, here’s the link:

If you do decide to go with shrimp, you can also spruce up the bridesmaid bouquets with colors that compliment the shrimp shade.

I’ve seen the Shrimp color in person, and honestly, I don’t love it. It looks a bit dated and washed out to me.

I recall the Spice color being more of a rusty orange, though in your pic above it looks more like pinkish coral. They do have another color named Coral, which might work best with your peach/cream/pink scheme??

Bottom line is that their website photos are not at all accurate, and on top of that, these colors look VERY different in satin vs. chiffon, so a lot depends on the fabric you choose.

My best advice is to go to the store and see all of these colors in person, in the correct fabric as well. You should be able to find one that works without changing your total color scheme. (Though I do LOVE orange! :))

The tea rose still goes with your colors, right? Do they feel washed out in that too?

I like the idea of them all wearing slightly different shades. That way, none of them can complain they look washed out if they technically get to choose which shade they are going with. I would just say “this is the fabric I like, these are the colors.” They need to respect your color scheme but should also feel confident and not feel washed out. Afterall, they are buying the dresses. Even if they all end up in the same color, who cares? 🙂
