Help! Blush Wedding Dress, Navy Groomsman Tux's-What color would compliment Bridesmaid Dresses??

I initially was wearing a Reem Acra gown as my wedding dress. In love with it and my fiance cried as I walked out fitting room. In any event, last month my Dad gifted me the wedding dress I initially wanted (more like obsessed with) without me knowing. So now, I am wearing my blush wedding gown ("Marianne" by Maggie Sottero) and the Reem Acra gown as the reception dress.

My problem:

The groomsman are wearing Navy but I dont know what colors to put the bridesmaids in. I picked a dress ("Annabelle" by Jenny Yoo also at BHLDN) but can't decide on a shade. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Could you put them in navy as well?

    I think the very first color you have up there would look nice

    I love the mint color. Mint, blush, and navy looks so fresh and pretty together.

    The second row, 3rd and 4th pictures - whatever color that is would go well with Navy and your dress. I like the contrast of the Navy (dark) and the light blue(?) of those dresses. It would look great in pictures

    I like the lighter blue. Mint is fine, I know it's really in right now. But I feel it can wash people out depending on skin tone, and I find a lot of people on here have trouble finding that color for centerpieces, accents, etc. Of course you don't have to use the bridesmaid color as an accent color as well; could stick with white/ivory and colors that match your reception dress.

    Too many options, right!?

    I'd go with navy gowns with a pink sash or belt.

    I'm thinking something in the green or purple family.

    Those same Jenny Yoo dresses are available thru Nordstrom in a wider range of colors. (Link below.) I am partial to the lilac and the raisin.

    BTW... LOVE the Marianne by Maggie dress.

    Light blue or plum purple. The mint is also pretty and would go, but like ELFie says, its a less forgiving color and may not be as complimentary for all of your girls. . .

    A really light blush pink would look nice too, if you wanted to go that route

    I think there is one tan dress, probably MOH
