Any of the colors from PPs would work 🙂 I LOVE burgundy and mauve. But if you really want a bright color, why not a pale peach or a coral? You can easily google tropical beach weddings for color ideas, but I personally would avoid anything blue – not sure why. Just feel like that color combo isn’t my thing lol

Eggplant or some other shade of purple, maybe? Bright enough for all the greenery but also gives a nod towards winter.

Great venue! Unlike PP, my gut reaction was blue, either sky or turqoise.

I’d consider Tangerine, Marigold and those kinds of shades (and also allow people to find shades in that range that work well for their complexions.) I think a space like the one you shared (and described) needs strong complimentary colors to avoid everyone being swallowed up by the setting.

Red would be really pretty but with it being a winter wedding, that would make me think too much of Christmas colors if all the BMs were in red.

I really like the picture PP posted with red mixed in with other shades. It looks like a sunrise/sunset!

I think a magenta would play beautifully against the greenery!

My first thought was orange as well, glad others agree! and i tink that actually if its the right shade orange can be a very versatile colour for all skin tones. I have a bird of paradie colour scheme going on in my head right now that could look beautiful in a tropical conservatory!Image result for bird of paradise

princessmiaofgenovia :  Hi! I LOVE your venue, very beautiful. I got married in a vineyard during fall in New england and I still had a lot of greenery and lush trees and bushes. I was going to do a green bridesmaid dress but decided that wouldn’t work for similar reasons as you. I went with a very light grey (alomst a silver but not metallic) My venue inside was also very industrial with harsh lines so the lighter color, lots of candles and white linens softened the harshness. I think go with a lighter but not obvious color, greys, creams, pale yellow/pink. You don’t want the bridesmaids sticking out with bright colors but you don’t want them washed out in too dark. I think in this case, neutrals are your friend!

I definitely think a color that stands out from all of that greenery would be best. I went to a wedding before where they had the ceremony in conservatory that looks almost identical to yours and all of the bridesmaids wore light blue dresses and they looked lovely since it was in the spring. I also second the burgrundy color or a deep purple, which I love.  Anything but green. LOL.
