Torn between two color pallets! Help!!

Hi everyone! My venue is very open and has a ton of windows/natural light and wood (but not rustic) so we almost have a blank slate. I am torn between two pallets:

Muted neutrals - likely a pale pink, very light blue and sage. Open to a few girls having florals.
PROS - this is naturally what I’m drawn to and I think it would add a pop of color to the day
CONS - can’t find light enough colors anywhere! Also don’t want the pink and blue to feel like a baby shower.

Neutral tones - champagne, grey, cream, etc
PROS - easier to find, easier to make look cohesive
CONS - could not flatter skin tones, might make the wedding look colorless. I might not stand out as much as the bride.

What are are your thoughts??

    I would probably still go with the muted if it's what you really like. Somehow I don't think it would matter much to anyone else what it ends up looking like as long as you're happy with it.

    I think muted neutrals would look beautiful! That's my pick

    You will absolutely stand out as the bride even if you decide on neutral tones so don’t even worry about that! If you feel like the neutrals would lack color, you could always add pops of a specific color- maybe sage with greenery or light rose/blush with flowers.

    🙋🏻‍♀️ I had a similar dilemma ! So i have ALOT of bridesmaids “9” to be exact. I wanted a neutral color because finding a color that looks good on 9 girls is easier said than done. I decided on champagne. However, once i saw a couple of the fairer skinned girls in it i changed my mind because they looked washed out. I would bring your bridesmaid to try on different colors and once you see them in it you will be able to decide easily

    I love the muted pastel neutrals. I think they look fresh and cool -- both good things in July. I think the more earthy neutrals (the grays and beige) are pretty, but I think those are much harder colors for a lot of women to wear. Personally, I think they look great on people with darker skin tones or those who tan well, but for those of us who are really pale? There's just no way to not look like death-warmed-over in those tones (notice how many brunettes there are in your sample picture...).

    I agree using somewhat darker tones in the flowers would be gorgeous with the pastels. In one of the pretties weddings I've ever been to, the BMs wore pale lavender dresses and carried soft, salmon colored roses.... The contrast was stunning!
