When shopping for part of our groomsmen’s attire, FI and I had a hard time finding purple ties that are wide enough. So when we found the last three on the rack of a wedding salon, we snatched them up despite their being pricey.
Months later I went to a fabric store to pick out the material for my bridesmaids and really loved the shade called royal purple, and they gave me a swatch to give my bridesmaids so that when they go buy the material for their dresses, they don’t get the wrong shade. (The girls will be having their dresses made my tailors of their choice).
Today is when it dawned on me that the two shades might be too different to go together and when I checked, I’m not sure.
Please let me know what you think from the photos taken in different light settings- can my girls still wear royal purple (the swatch on top) or should I get them swatches in the shade of purple of the neckties (the material below)?
i’d hate to have to relinquish the royal purple, but we already paid for the ties and wide purples ones are hard to find, so we can’t get rid of them.
If it helps, our wedding colours are purple and silver; the guys will be in very light purple shirts and gray suits, and the girls will be in silver shoes.
