I like Dahlia – I think it will be a perfect rich, vibrant color that will go really well with a summer wedding! That dress would be beautiful with lavender roses and cream flowers.

Good luck!

lalexa01:  We had the Dahlia, although it was in the dupioni silk, but it was a beautiful rich colour:

I like the orchid. I think it goes with the other colors better.  (And I’ve been a purple nut all my life).

Orchid goes better with all the other stuff you’re going with, but man Dahlia really stands out and looks awesome. Good luck!

I think the dahlia is quite a statement color, it’s very beautiful. The orchid is a pretty color. Do you want that beautiful wow factor or a harmonious blending? which I’m sure is why you are asking us! 

My vote is for Dahlia!

Ok I was a bridesmaid in a Dessy Orchid chiffon dress and it was BRIGHT.  I like Dahlia much better.  Orchid photographed better than it looked in person, but in person it was very very bright, and not everyone’s cup of tea.

What did you end up doing?  We are doing 2882 in Venetian Gold – my colors are champagne and gold (no purple).  

Any pics to share?  🙂
