I think it depends on the season, I love the dark blue for a fall or winter wedding. If you don’t like the blush pink, maybe go with “dusty rose” which would look nice with your cake and flowers…

ohdarling :  Blush and lavendar are the two colors I think look best with that palette, but you’ve ruled them out. The blues look ok. What about sage? Is rose gold too light? Some coppers would match, the pinky rather than orangy ones. Straw or butter yellow… 

At some point you might have to ask yourself how much is it worth stressing over. If you find dresses you like in a color you like but it’s not exactly some imaginary shade you’re picturing in your mind, so what? Nobody else will notice and you’ll get to stop stressing and move onto something else.

What about a sage green or pale green?

How about terra-cotta?  It can be a hard color to wear, though. Maybe a coral or deep peach?

Cornflower blue is pretty with those colours

Pick a company / brand first maybe? If doing Azazie, they have a beautiful Mulberry color that would pop well with your pale pink and blush accents.

OOh i just went to a wedding with really similar colouring and the bridesmaids wore these beatiful pale seafoam green dresses that match the light green of that bouquet. Search for “Dusty rose” and “seafoam/pale seafoam” if you’re interested!. Dusty rose is pretty big right now so that might be easier.
