Maybe you could try dessy.com  The dresses are pretty moderately priced and there is a rainbow of colors to choose from.  I found a purple named “dahlia” available in dupioni silk on their site that seemed close to what you want.  I hope that helps.  : )

Kind of expensive, but Nordstrom’s has some – my sister got hers there!

Try Dessy’s African Violet.  It is a very pretty plum like purple.

What about JCrew ‘s spiced wine color?  I was also looking for purple dresses and couldnt’ find anything I liked.  I settled for Concord color in Dessy’s After Six Line. 

I hope that the color deoesn’t look like a dark blue in pictures but I was so tired of looking for the right purple 🙁

This is exactly my wedding colour, and it is SO hard to find!!

Literally anything I found in that colour I snatched up right away!
My Maid/Matron of Honor is in a dessy dress in African Violet D416 http://www.dessy.com/dresses/bridesmaid/d416/ it is seriously the perfect shade (although not my favourite dress I’ll admit)! In person it is actually a bit lighter than on the website, so don’t be put off.
Be as picky as you want! As a long-time purple fantatic, I totally support your desire to have the right shade! There are so many ‘blah’ colours of purple!

Good luck!! My wedding is going to be awash with this lovely colour!

i dont think youre being too picky! i wanted a pretty dark purple and i wouldnt settle! Davids bridals lapis was the best i could find for a while but i wasnt happy with it! I went with alfred angelo eggplant. They have the best purple colors and i think their violet looks close to what youre looking for!
