I would most definitely call the shop, especially since they made a big deal about you ordering the dresses at the same time to get the same colour. If they’re all the same brand and fabric then they should also be the same colour. You’re not being a bridezilla by complaining.

It is pretty obvious.. I would contact the store. The colors shouldn’t be off that far at all.

Maybe ask if 2 of the dresses were washed or something?

If the shop won’t fix it, maybe you could get some rit dye and dye the other 2 dresses the same dark color as the 3rd?

@lizzypoo96:  

If the store mentioned ordering them at the same time to ensure they’re from the same dye lot (a very important point, by the way), then I am logically presuming that all of these dresses are from the same manufacturer and line. However, I completely agree that something is not right. In fact in one of your photos, one of the dresses looks black and the other looks Navy.

The only possible conclusions I can draw based on my limited knowledge of the situation is that one of these dresses is made of a different fabric than the others (silk vs. polyester perhaps?), or that the direction of the fabric is of a different orientation than the others (upside down, possibly?), or that someone in the supply chain decided to substitute an existing dress from a DIFFERENT dye lot, thinking no one would notice (wrong.) Definitely notify the store immediately. It may be necessary to have all three dresses is remade.
