Wow!  That’s a huge difference!  I can’t speak about this particular designer or dress, but I have noticed that the “same” color often looks very different depending on the fabric choice.  I would say your best bet is to see the fabric in person.  If you go to a retailer that sells Dessy dresses, they will probably have swatches for you to see.  You may even be able to get swatches online.  Good luck!

I think the links might be a little screwy – the 1st one you posted shows a dress in “Merlot” but the 2nd is in “African Violet”.

I did click on the “Merlot” in the 2nd link to change the color to make it the same and it does look different but I’d check it out in a bridal salon if you can. It’s kind of like trying to pick paint chips online – it gives you a good idea, but it’s not really until you see it in person that you can get the best look at it. Good luck!

Edit: I read your orig. post wrong. My bad. I’d still check it out in person though – it might not be that different.
