Matching your bridal attire with the bridesmaid's dresses sounds like a wonderful idea. It is probably the easiest way to keep the flow of the visual part of your wedding set-up, especially if you don't have a particular wedding theme you want to follow. However, the idea of matching bride's and bridesmaids' looks isn't original. If you are a bride who loves color trends and fashion experiments, you deserve to take the most non-trivial decisions for your ceremony.

If you opt for a classic white wedding dress or choose between any other shade of white, like eggshell, ivory, pearl, or diamond white, then bridesmaids' white dresses aren't an option. At the same time, white and shades of white play well with almost any other color, therefore it is going to be easy to pick a beautiful bridesmaid's dress color. There is no need in searching for too long, and going too far for inspiration. An online retailer My Chic Dress helped me to find the most inspiring bridesmaids' dresses in sweet shades of pink.

1. Hot Pink

The classic combination of black and white is frequently used for many formal and informal ceremonies. But why opt for traditional combos, when you can take your duochrome wedding to a whole new level with black and pink colors. Gloomy and sophisticated black wedding dresses have gained a certain amount of popularity over the past decades. Therefore, sweetly colored with the hot pink bridesmaids' dresses are going to contrast beautifully with the bride's gown, don't you think?

2. Salmon Pink

Salmon pink is a truly majestic shade. It combines the hotness of the orange, mixed with the innocence and tranquility of faded pink. This shade works amazing for three different times of the year: young spring, hot summer, and chilly fall. Pair it with mint green, burnt orange, and light blue colors.

3. Orchid Pink

The first mentioning of orchid as a name for the color was recorded back at the beginning of the 20th century. It can vary in saturation, and undertones, but can be described as a bright pinkish-purple color with a prominent cool undertone. With the rising popularity of pink color, there is a big chance that prom dresses 2022 will be in this shade of pink. Don't miss the trend, and dress your bridesmaids in orchid pink.

4. Strawberry Pink

The next beautiful color for the bridesmaid's dress is strawberry pink. A soft mixture of red and pink, not as saturated as hot pink, or orchid pink, therefore it is easier on the eyes. Strawberry pink will go well with the hot time of the year, and with the rustic and vineyard wedding themes.

5. Neon Pink

According to the broadcaster Today, hot pink was the hottest color of this summer. No wonder, as people wished for something vivid and eye-catching after the lockdown. And, let's be honest, neon pink is the first shade that comes to everyone's mind when we think of pink. Consider neon pink dresses for your ladies, and don't forget to match them with other colorful elements. These will help you to reduce wedding expenses while keeping the color palette solid.

6. Dusty Rose

You are the biggest fan of the book "The Thorn Birds"? Then you will recognize this shade of pink in thousands of others. Dusty rose or "ashes of roses" was a color of Meggie's iconic dress. A pale-rosy shade muted with gray. This color definitely deserves to be remembered and memorized through a fresh wedding ceremony.

7. Watermelon Pink

Strawberry pink may look a bit too harsh for some color palettes. But don't fret, as there is a lighter, more subtle version of this shade. Watermelon pick closely resembles strawberry pink but looks less saturated. Match it with white, silver, and gold.

8. Powder Pink

If you have a post-pandemic, budget-friendly wedding ceremony, pick up cheap bridesmaid dresses with your friends. Something wearable that can be worn casually after the wedding is over. For instance, powder pink or nudish-pink fit every skin tone. This shade of pink is easy to find and easy to style with other basic colors.

9. Magenta Pink

The magic of magenta color lies in a perfect mixture of blue and red colors. It is very romantic, deep, and posh. Some may say that it looks more purple than pink, but I wanted to include it as pink color inspiration. Magenta is just as popular for homecoming dresses, prom dresses, and semi-formal cocktail dresses, as for bridesmaids.

10. Lemonade Pink

And, for the last, I left a lemonade pink shade. It is very similar to the blushing pink, and powder pink shades. Though, it is warmer and has a more sunny yellow to it. It goes well with pure white, creamy, glacier gray, and fresh green colors. Ideal for summer and the beginning of the fall.
