Any advice is appreciated. We are getting married on 4.3.21 I have several color schemes chosen that I love, but I’m having an extremely hard time deciding on what color to choose for the bridesmaid dresses. My dress is Stella York ivory over almond, I’m thinking the guys will be in Navy, and I’m wanting to do like a peony pink for the girls, but every pink I come across is either tooo pesto bismol or too dark and dungey and I want warm colors. Does that make sense?! I can picture it in my head, but can’t find any pictures that explain. I already purchased my save the dates and they are a very light pink, almost off white, with light grey writing. Any other color options match with this? I definitely want pink in the flowers.
I found these images that might help... if you can't find the right shade of pink, I think grey would be really pretty! Or, you can put the girls in navy and the guys in grey. David's Bridal, JJ House, or Azazie are places you can check for bridesmaid dresses that might have the color you have in mind.
I totally know what you mean with the pink. To avoid that, what about choosing a much lighter pink instead, like a blush or petal pink? That was my first thought since peonies look lighter pink on the edges of their petals. It would look gorgeous next to navy suits and any darker color pinks in your florals would pop. It also looks great on a range on skin tones and is an easy color to shop for. You could even do a floral pattered bridesmaids dresses that are light pink with darker pink flowers on them.
If that's not your jam, you can always google 'peony pink color schemes' which could give you some fresh ideas.
It's ok to be picky! Sometimes different shades of colors are in depending on whats trendy for the year, so it could be the shades of pink that you're seeing offered don't match your vision for that reason. I think the Dusty Pinks are really trending right now, which seems like the color you're looking to avoid. Have you looked at different swatches in person as opposed to online? That could be really helpful! Even looking at google photos of real weddings in the color and designer can help you see the actual color:
