I think we’re getting Bill Levkoff in Victorian Lilac, but I dont have a picture of it unfortunately. My girls should be going to get measured soon, if I get a pic I will let you know!

@swatt3:  I havent looked at lilac but I did consider pewter, we didnt end up choosing it so I dont have many pictures and they’re all from my phone.  Also, it looks very different in photos from one to the next so I am including a couple for you – not the best but hopefully it helps a little.

I got Bill Levkoff 521 in Victorian Lilac. Depending on the lighting the color can look lavender to a darker purple/gray. Hope this helps:

@swatt3:  since you havent seen the color in person I wanted to share as much as I possibly could (as I am going through the exact same dilemma with another designer- saw one color but not the other! urgh)

The middle dress in this picture is bill levkoff pewter and looks EXACTLY how it looks in person!

I’m also torn with this color.  I can’t decide between the euro pewter or the euro grey.  I thought I was set on the grey but when I went today to look at the actual color swatches, the grey looks brownish to me.   So I set up the bridesmaids dress file with the girls ordering the pewter.   However, when I look at the pewter online on the website, it looks purplish to me.   So I guess my question is….is the pewter really purple in real life or is it more grey?  or vice versa….is the grey really brownish?  It could just be my computer but I want to make sure I order the right color.  I’m going for just a nice grey….not too light but not too dark.

@Cupcake105:  Your issue sounds EXACTLY like mine but I ordered dessy gowns – I did end up switching fingers crossed it was for the best!

As far as the bill levkoff goes.  Pewter does have a SLIGHT purple hue to it but it is still clearly a gray  – if you scroll up on this thread all the pictures I posted were of pewter. I don’t have any experience with their gray color though – sorry :/ BUT I will say my colors are gray and blush and I did NOT want purple gray at all – I still would have picked pewter by Bill Levkoff, it looks very gray in person and only a slight hue of purple in some pictures, but not too bad.

@MarieeToBee:  Thank you for your comment.  That makes me feel a little better!   And the more I look at your pic above, it does look like a nice grey color.  The bridal shop is ordering me a fabric sample of each so I’m curious to see what they actually look like in person.   My colors are actually similar to yours….grey and pink.   So I’m hoping if there is no purple in sight, the dresses will just look grey!
