What would be a good color for bridesmaids’ dresses?

My wedding colors are soft pink with greenery and hints of gold (inspiration pic below).  I don’t like the idea of pink bridesmaids dresses bc my friend did that, and I was one of her bridesmaids, and it just looked awful.  All the bridesmaids were completely washed out at her wedding, and only my maid of honor has a skin tone that will look good in a pink dress.  It’s important to me that my bridesmaids get dresses they are comfortable in, so hopefully they will be able to reuse the dresses again later on.  I’m not a fan of green dresses either because I feel like it’s very trendy right now, but I will regret that choice later on.  I thought maybe a light-medium gray dress might work or even a dusty blue with more gray on it.  But will that look okay with the rest of the wedding being pink and green?  Any other ideas?

    I wouldn't do the blue with this.  You've got a really nice vibe with what you have now, and the blue blows it up.  IMO, the same applies to gray or silver.  If anything, it would be the opposite - a champagne gold or even wheat color.  

    Also, you might be overthinking on the green (assuming it's like a sage color). I've always loved this color and I've never had trouble finding things in it. 

    Here's a champagne gold type dress. (Just showing color not style).

    NO grey.  Either a bright green or a dark green would look better.  You don't want to get to "washed" up looking with pale colors.

    I know no one who looks good in gray. If you choose aNY shade of blue, even a blue-gray, I do not think that will look with the gold accents you want. And with a blue-gray with the light pink  your colors will look li,e a baby shower, not a wedding.

    To me, it seems like the problem with your color scheme begins with the baby pink. Unless you go with a deeper color, like cranberry. And since a light green is not to your liking, what about a darker shade of green, like grass green or kelly green?

    Trying to pick a dress your attendants will wear again is impossible as you cannot please several girls to like the same dress to rewear...unless they pick their own dress in a color shade of your choice.

    I have been in four weddings and even though I liked each dress  I never had the opportunity to wear a brides maid dress for another ocassion.

    The gray blue sounds great since you don't like pink or green for the occasion dresses.  I would make sure it is a light or pale choice.

    It seems to me you've created a no-win situation. You've intentionally selected colors that you do not want your wedding party to wear.  How does that make sense?  So, you either change your colors or add a color.  

    You really haven't selected "pink," but rather blush. A great option would be to look for a floral print that include blush and sage, but has a pattern, other colors and potentially either a white or cream back ground.

    Quit trying to find a bridesmaid dress that they will wear later. Never works

    I really don’t see any shade of gray looking good. 

    Why not a darker pink or a deep rose. Or a pale green with a pink bouquet.

    My wife chose a cerulean dress that could be worn different ways for the bridesmaids.  Example, my sister wore hers as a midi, cross back but her maid of honour wore it as a maxi halter(hers was vermillon though.  There were many ways one could wear the same dress.  All you need to do is get the colour and you MOH should be wearing a different dress anyway.

    Gray doesn't look good on many people. You get the same washed out effect as the light pink. What about a deeper shade of pink, or something in the burgundy, wine, cranberry shades. Try to stay in same color family as your wedding colors.

    if you are wearing white then yes. otherwise to go with the colour scheme they would look nice but slightly (only slightly) a lighter grey
