Hey guys! Would a pink wedding dress look best on its own (no bridesmaids), or is there a color you can think of that would look good next to it?
Is black or grey the only thing that will draw attention to the pink or should I go with a light purple to keep with the floral/pastels? Any and all color
scheme ideas are welcome! Wedding is a year out and I haven’t yet asked anyone to be my bridesmaid.

I love gold or silver. I also think white bridesmaids with a colored wedding gown is unexpected.

I would look at white or wine for bridesmaid dresses. Either would look stunning!

Light grey or dusty blue would look nice! Or maybe a pale green?

My first thought before I even saw the pink was green. Like leaves around the petals of a flower. Silvery grey would be pretty but I think black would overpower.
I also love the idea of Bridesmaid or Best Man in white and bride in pink but it’s hard to tell if that shade of pink would be strong enough to stand apart from the white.
ETA that dress is beautiful and you are rocking it!

I think ivory or a pale gray would look nice.

Beautiful dress! I think it all depends on what kind of a look or vibe you’re going for! I had a blush dress as well, though it photographed as more ivory-colored in the sun (and more beige/gold-colored when indoors!)
I had my bridesmaids in a dusty purple color, with my maid of honor in a wine color (I also had a male friend standing on my side, who wore a medium-gray suit with a tie that matched the dusty purple of the bridesmaids)
Here is a pic, if it would help you see what the colors might look like near each other! (Again, I know my dress isn’t the exact same color as yours, but mine was from David’s Bridal too and I found it photographed super differently when it wasn’t in the DB lighting!)
Cut off everyone’s heads to protect the innocent LOL but here’s a look at our colors. Maybe they didn’t go together perfectly (I don’t know?) but I loved the soft color pallate. It felt romantic 🙂

What about maybe an ivory? Or a darker pink? And btw, love your dress. I want a pink dress too eventually.

What about ivory or crimson?

Champagne may look really nice with it but I agree with gold or silver especially since your dress has silver accents

You should decide on whether to have bridesmaids based on the relationship, not because they don’t work with your color scheme.
That said, I would go with light gray, silver or plum.

Silver, light gray or navy would all look great with your dress.

xitsperfection : Silver is my first choice, but burgundy/wine would also be beautiful especially for an October wedding. I would not do white dresses in October. I know the “don’t wear white after labor day” thing is old fashioned but that much white — with the pastel pink…. seems off for a fall wedding.
ETA: Ooh, just saw PP’s suggestion of Navy — that would look great too!
