I have a Bm who lives in denmark so she ordered her dress here in America before she left and she is coming back for the wedding- 2 weeks after she ordered it in a light blue ( I already had to settle on the color cause they had NOTHING close to the color) tjjey called me to say that color was discontenued- so I had to pick a different color so i picked purple- yeah well it came and I am not happ about it.
i can’t do anything about it and I did some swtiching with the groomsmen and Man of honor so that hopefully it will be better- but it was supposed to be alot darker!
my Maid/Matron of Honor dress is peacock blue :S

Could you add a deep purple sash, brooch or other accesory? I think if it was kind of framed by a darker purple you would see a light lavender color rather then white. Also when she is in a picture with you, or in the ceremony the contrast with your white dress should make it obvious her dress isn’t white.

@nikkialys: Thanks! I changed the Groomsmen to a darker purple hoping it will help and I thin I’ll put purple in her hair or someting and have her do dark shoes :S
i’m just being a bridezilla!

In person the color is closer to a light lilac… I worked at a store that carried that dress in that color. Trust me, no one will mistake her for the bride! It doesn’t resemeble off or off-white in person at all 🙂

I personally think it is a gorgeous colour.
But, as a PP suggested, you could definitely add some darker coloured accessories.
You aren’t being a bridezilla at all. You just have a vision in mind!

I think it’s a gorgeous dress in a gorgeous color! And with some dark purple shoes…I think it will look smokin’!

I agree with the above posters – if you add a darker purple accent, you’ll be fine. It’s gorgeous and flowy!

It looks lilac or lavender, a very light purple. I think it’s lovely, but that doesn’t really matter lol. I just wanted to say that it definitely doesn’t look white if that’s a concern.

Thank you to everyone. I think I was already upset about how light it was then when 2 people txt me and said “I just saw your dress is BEAUITFL” and I said oh I gave you the link to it- and they said no on facebook – so they thought this dress was my wedding dress- and I was like bummed…
but thanks for all the reassurance!
