Colors for Accentuating a Petal Pink Bridesmaid Dress

Because petal pink is a color that is light and subtle, there is a wide range of colors that you can pair it with. There are greens, yellows and blues as well as neutrals. The right color depends on the season and type of the wedding.

You can use black, brown or gold to reduce the feminine tone of the event. You can opt to use red sashes or bows on bridesmaid dresses to give warmth, vibration and excitement to the overall look. Pairing a petal pink with purple exudes boldness while using metallic colors gives an edge to the total look.

To balance out the muted qualities of a petal pink, find accessories in flattering colors that would look good on various skin tones. Sometimes, a petal pink color may not be for everyone but it pairs well with many shades. Accent it with navy, charcoal, chocolate, burgundy, teal, olive, emerald and many more.

Accessories That Work With Petal Pink Bridesmaid Dresses:

Metallic colors either in silver or gold will do wonders to transform the total look of a petal pink dress. Silver or gold strappy sandals, bags and hair accessories will complement an evening dress in petal pink. For a more confidant and daring look, consider a butter yellow or candy apple red accessories. This combination will work for warmer weather weddings.

A spring or summer wedding any time of the day is the ideal occasion to pair neutral accessories with a petal pink bridesmaid dress. Choose nude high heel shoes and add a little sparkle with silver or gold dangling earrings.

Create a hard and soft look by contrasting a petal pink dress with accessories in black. Because the pink color is quintessentially girly, you can toughen it up with a splash of black. You can also add black trimmings on the dress. To complete the contrast look, have the male members of the wedding party wear black coats with a splash of pink color on their ties or lapels.

A petal pink bridesmaid dress can play a starring role in any wedding occasion when styled to suit the season and theme of the event.
