What color Bridesmaid Dress?

What color Bridesmaid Dress? 1
I’m having a hard time deciding what color to choose for my bridesmaids!! My original ideal was to do pastel colors - pink/green/blue/yellow… then I found this dress! It’s completely amazing and I love the colors this dress has but now I have no idea what color I should do for my bridesmaids that will pair well. I’m getting married in the spring, aiming for a whimsical garden wedding vibe and have 8 bridesmaids total. I loved the idea of different colors for them but now think they should be all in one color due to my dress. My sister is my maid of honor so I wouldn’t mind her being in a different color to stand out a bit. I’m thinking pink or green? The flowers on this dress are a slightly a peachy color. Would a dark pink be too much? Almost a soft pink burgundy? Please help!

    Another thing! I’m thinking my fiancé in a dark hunter green suit! So it needs to match that as well.

    I think a blush or a sage dress would be really pretty!

    I think a green similar to the leaves for the bridesmaids and a dusky pink for the MoH would be lovely.

    With your fiance being in green and your dress being colorful I would pick a more natural color such as a light gray/silver. Too many different colors might not coordinate well/look disorganized.

    You can do any color. Keep in mind that not all colors are universally flattering on everyone. Consult with your bridesmaids to see what they look best in compared to the color palette you want to use

    That is a good point. People's hair and skin color should be complemented by the clothing color. I'm not sure if there are some colors that work more broadly.

    Based on color charts from people in the fashion industry, neutrals (black, white, cream, grey) are the ones that tend to work best on cool tones and warm tones. But some people can’t wear white or grey without looking sick. Hair color has less to do with it than skin tone. Look at your veins on the inner wrist. If they are blue, then you are cool toned so you look best in cool colors (blue, green, purple, silver). Green veins mean that you are warm toned so you look best in reds, oranges, yellows, gold. Cool and warm and not interchangeable so that is why certain colors look great on some and make other people look like corpses. And why each person in the group needs to try on colors (not just tiny swatches) to see what is flattering.

    I did a color test online and it seemed to give some decent color matching.

    A sage/mint/olive palette would be nice! Then everyone can pick their favorite green and wear that

    You should have everyone in a shade of blush/sage green! But they should all be different that would be so cute and give people an option to do what is best for their body!
