I’m getting married in December and have picked out my bridesmaid dress, which is made by Bill Levkoff. The style # is 165 and it’s a Chiffon material.
I can’t decide between the colors Latte and Sangria!!! I initially wanted Latte due to my vintage theme, but thought it might wash the girls out in December???
Does anyone have pictures of ANY chiffon Bill Levkoff dresses in Latte or Sangria?!
NO bridal shops around here have EITHER color in a sample dress!
Thanks for your help!

I did some googling and I found this is Sangria:
and this is Latte (not in chiffon but satin):
Even in Chiffon I don’t think the latte color is light enough to wash anyone out (like champagne might) so go with whatever color you’d prefer!

I think that is a beautiful bridesmaid dress, and I don’t think that you could go wrong with either color. I do like the latte, and don’t think it will wash anyone out!

@KimmySumShuga: Thanks for your help!!! The colors look SO different on the website than when photographed!
@nutMeg13: Thanks, I love the dress! It’s very flattering on all builds!

@sdino: I know right?! Its so annoying how different things are online than in person… makes all our internet research 1000% harder!
Do the pix help make your decision?

@KimmySumShuga: I know! What’s even more frustrating is that the stores in my area have swatches the size of matchbooks, and don’t even have any for sale! I haven’t figured out what I’m going to do about that yet…
Also, although I really love the latte, I think I have decided to go with the sangria! I’m getting married at a little mansion that has a lot of golds and tans in the room already. So I figured, since there is a very tiny bit of purplish red in the carpet, I may try to pull it out in the dresses. I think it’ll be nice to have a pop of color in there =)
Below’s a picture of the room (well, only half the room is shown) that we’ll be getting married in, as well as having the reception. Coctail hour will be in a room in the front of the mansion so they can do their transformation.

I think you made the right call, though that’s just my personal preference. I look weird in nudes, taupes, and tans, and I think the red will be nice and warm for your winter wedding! Plus, yes, you don’t want them to blend into your background. 😉
