I am so frustrated because we went Bridesmaid or Best Man dress shopping today and I can’t find anything with the rich royal purple color. They are either a bluish purple or a jewel tone purple. Any bees have suggestions?! Thank you!

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. : )

Davids Bridal carries a strapless dress in plum.
It’s taffeta, which isn’t my favorite fabric but I think the color looks pretty awesome!

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

Well we tried on a few of the dessy dresses and I have admired them for a while. However, when I saw them on my girls I wasn’t very impressed. Ahh..so many options! We didn’t get to see any of the purple options. They only had eggplant and I feel like that is too dark. Am i just being too picky?

Also, do you think that color above is plum?

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!
