Just guessing here, but it looks a lot like “Tiffany Blue” – which is actually a copyrighted color from what I’ve read.

@pixiecat:  We are colour twins!!! My BM’s will be wearing Coral dresses though, and we having them made, so we just heading off to a fabric store. I have been having a hard time finding aqua shoes, and some accesories. For that reason I am going with shades of coral and aqua.

Bill Levkoff’s glacier is a great Tiffany Blue. Went to a wedding where the girls were wearing similar to the J. Crew you posted, except it had a couple flower detail on the neckline.

@pixiecat:  David’s Bridal has a pretty good aqua! It may be a little darker than you’re looking for, though…

If the girls are fine with the dresses, why not just go with the J.Crew?  I don’t think you will really save that much money going elsewhere.  Most bridesmaids dresses are $150-250. If you are worried about the price, maybe you could chip in $50 for each of the dresses?  And then you will get the exact color you want.

Tiffany Blue is trademarked rather than copy written. It means the color can not be used with a trade (jewelry marketing in this case) just as Louboutin has the trademark pod red on the bottom of his shoes. But it doesn’t restrict ALL use.


As far as this aqua color, it looks more like something that would be marketed in the spring than the late summer approaching fall. I think you’ll have a difficult time finding it off the rack. If that’s the route you want to go, honestly I would just grab the J Crew ones before they discontinue them. I mean, you like them, and J Crews stuff isn’t usually lavishly expensive, particularly for bridal party gear.

Seems like colors in real life differ a lot from online, not sure how this one would work out but you could always order one and return it – from Target. The color is called Blue Ocean and it’s $55.99 USD
