What color Bridesmaid Dresses would work best with my gown? 1

My fiance wants to do black on black for the the groomsmen. I was thinking a sage green, but of course I want some suggestions! My dress looks blush at times, champagne other times! -As you can see in this photo. Wedding will be late August or into September.

    If you want to bring out the blush tones you can do mauve or you can go more tan or champagne like a sandy taupe What color Bridesmaid Dresses would work best with my gown? 2

    Love your dress girl. I think black would be too much darkness if that makes sense. I think a blush pink, mauve or even a pastel green would look nice. It has to match your dress. Good luck

    GORGEOUS dress. I think if you wanted to do a sage green, that would look nice alongside your dress and the black on the guys' side because well...everything really goes with black! Except navy blue ha. I also like the mauve idea, my only thought would be it might be too close to your gown color if it's showing blush tones, but that all depends on how much you want to stand out. Dark red/burgundy also go wonderfully with your color dress and are nice fall colors. We are doing burgundy and blush for our colors and the guys will also be in black on black with a burgundy vest.

    Very pretty dress. Love the blush tone! I think sage green would look fine so long as it is not too close to a pastel mint color. Burgundy, light blue, or pure white would also be good bridesmaid ress colors that would make a nice contrast to your dress.

    I think maybe a lavender or a light blue would look good

    Any color you want that is flattering on your bridesmaids. Browse Pinterest for color palettes.

    I don't know how you feel about sequins, but I went to a wedding where they had dresses similar to this and they looked gorgeous. Could be similar color to you, but the different texture would help you stand out. https://shoprevelry.com/Revelry-sequin-bridesmaid-dress-chloe-maxi-dress/

    I think sage would look gorgeous! I may be biased because that's what my ladies are wearing. You could also go with a metallic like silver, gold, or rose gold.

    You look absolutely beautiful in your dress! However, you have quite a challenge ahead of you.

    Since your dress is a deep blush color with soft netting and lace appliques, it is important to not only take your bridesmaid's color into consideration, but material as well. I feel that certain fabrics like satin, taffeta, charmeuse in bold or metallic colors, or that have different accents like sequins will outshine the delicate, ethereal nature of your dress.

    Soft netting or chiffon will provide a natural compliment. Finding very pale, muted shades will be the way to go. Sage green could work, but it would have to be very, very specific shades of sage. I am leaning more towards an even more pale shade of blush for the bridesmaids, or ivory, pale taupe, muave/pantone, or very pale gray. I lean more against blues and lavender unless it looks closer to a very pale gray because it can contrast too easily in a way that is not complimentary to your dress. Conversely, if you don't mind your bridesmaids having a bold shade, especially if a wedding is at night or has a more glam vibe, maroons or a deep wine would compliment your dress too.

    As for the groom and groomsmen:

    An all-black look might be too harsh next to your dress unless your wedding is in the evening, and/or you want it to be more glam. Pairing a black tux with a black shirt, and some strategically placed gold or ivory hints can help soften the look. You could also "soften" the black by opting for a velvet jacket
    Other options to look into:
    -A cream or ivory suit with black trim, and gold accents will create a bold, complimentary statement.
    -Charcoal suits for the groom and groomsmen are more versatile, and can compliment more venues and skin tones.

    Good suggestion, I'm thinking pink and white bouquets with some pampas grass/wheat tails and pale greenery. Gold/rose gold could look really cool
