Color Scheme Dilemma

It seems like I’m obsessing over a new wedding detail every other week! This week it’s bridesmaid dresses 🥲 I have to post here because, of course no one else cares about wedding details such as this lol
My wedding colors are burgundy, white and gold. Originally I had my bridesmaid dresses picked out as a burgundy satin dress. It was beautiful, but it was giving me fall vibes and my wedding is in spring time. I saw this pic on Pinterest (posted below) of blush colored bridesmaid dresses and thought this would look so much better for a spring wedding!
Color Scheme Dilemma 1
I was already planning on having blush colored roses in our bouquets so I thought it might tie together, but now I overthought it and I’m not so sure... Other than the bouquets, all of the other decor is gonna be burgundy, white and gold (I’ll post my “vision” below).So my question is, will it look totally random if my bridesmaids are in blush? Should I try to stick with burgundy dresses? I know usually the bridesmaid dresses are in the biggest wedding color.Additional info: I thought about maybe including blush linens, but I’m just not a fan I’d prefer to keep them burgundy and white. Also, my fiancé hasn’t picked out his suit yet but he will MAYBE be wearing a burgundy suit jacket and I’m worried that will throw it off even more.Color Scheme Dilemma 2

PS I know not all the pics I posted include blush roses, but just imagine they do lol!

    If there are some blush flowers here and there, and maybe groomsmen in blush ties, it won't look weird IMO.

    Thanks you! Smiley smile I will definitely have quite a few blush flowers in our centerpieces and on the big cross we're using for our ceremony, I wasn't sure if it would be enough.

    I think blush with the roses will look nice. Is there a reason you haven't considered them in gold if you're looking for a lighter, less fall-like, color?

    I say go with the blush dresses!! such a pretty color and definitely more spring. If they're accented with blush flowers, it would look great!! And like someone else said, put the groomsmen in blush ties and you'd be good to go!!! You can even do some girls in burgundy and some in blush, like the picture below. So pretty!! I also found a picture of the groom in burgundy and the groomsmen in navy..just to give you a feel of what it could look like.

    I actually did consider champagne dresses for a while and was almost set on going that route! That’s when I began overthinking maybe I should I should stick with burgundy since that is the major color 😭 lol but do you think champagne/gold would look okay?? I love that idea but I wasn’t sure if it would go together

    Thank you so much for this!!! Yes having the groomsmen in blush ties definitely makes me feel like it will end up all tying together 🤗 I love blush but I didn’t want too much of it, I think this would be the perfect amount.

    I think they'd look great! As long as they tie into your colors they'll match just fine. Especially if the guys have more burgundy on their side it'll even things out and won't have everyone in the same color.

    I think the burgundy dresses will be beautiful, if that's the color you want to go with. Take a deep breath and try not to overthink. My wedding is in August 2023 and my colors are emerald green, black, and gold. When I first researched these colors together, it popped up as being colors for a winter wedding, however, green is my fav color and black is my FH fav color. So we are sticking to it. Everything that I read was having me second guess my decisions. I have a vision for my wedding and with FH's help, Im sticking to it. He has been very helpful with planning the wedding. I was going to do emerald green for the bridesmaids dress, only have 2 of them. I asked my bridesmaids if they wanted to pick the color or style of their dresses. My MOH chose black and my bridesmaid chose green, so I chose the style of the dress. What does your burgundy bridesmaid dress look like that you chose? And what was the input of the bridesmaids?

    (Sorry for long post)

    I absolutely LOVE emerald green! Smiley love What season will your wedding be? It's crazy how something so little as a color can be stressful during wedding planning lol!

    I'm having 4 bridesmaids, they would rather pick the style than the color. Originally I wanted them all in the same dress (I'll post a pic below) but it's satin material and it's short. One of my bridesmaids didn't want a short dress and one didn't want satin lol which is fine I know it's a tricky fabric! Anyways, I figured my best option is to go with something from Azazie but I am not a huge fan of their burgundy or cabernet color dresses Smiley ups so now I think my best bet will be to go with either pink or champagne... Unless of course I find another burgundy or wine color dress I love!

    So pretty! Are these bridesmaid dresses azazie? If so, what color is the light pink? I’ve looked on their site, Pinterest, and have received swatches and everything is so different!

    I wanted blush as well (Spring wedding also) because it is my fave color. I actually switched it to black because blush seems to be the “go to” for everyone nowadays. Since my venue isn’t the garden wedding I initially wanted, and instead is a super glam ballroom setting- I switched to black and silver and I am considering fuschia as a pop of color but I’m undecided yet.
    I love the burgundy idea, and you can incorporate blush into the mix so that it gives more spring vibes than fall. I say do the burgundy dresses and rose gold accents, along with blush accents on decor to offset the burgundy.

    Blush definitely is the go-to, I've noticed that too! That's why I wasn't sure if that's what I wanted to go with. I actually am having a garden wedding (hence why I want SO many flowers lol) so I think either color would be fine, I think I just started doubting myself! I think I will go with burgundy after everyone's suggestions Smiley smile it was my first choice and I would hate to end up regretting blush when I originally said that's not what I wanted.

    I love the idea of adding fuchsia! Maybe you could do napkins that color or add bright pink roses in the centerpieces Smiley love what color will your bridesmaids be wearing?

    Blush and burgundy go together really well and I would absolutely go this route if you want to have a more springtime feel but still use the rich colors throughout your decor.

    I will also say that you can use whatever colors in whatever season you want, so if you love burgundy don't shy away from using it just because your wedding is in the spring. I personally LOVE the softer spring colors but don't feel forced into using them if they aren't what you want.

    I'm honestly not sure. I just found the photo on google. David's Bridal has a lot of different colors though and they're easy to match with groomsmen too!!!
