    a friend of a friend who works in the bridal/wedding industry told me they say that as a tactic for you to order all at once

    For the most part, the dye-lot problem is a thing of the past. Most designers use dyes now that are mixed using machines and they can matc the shade perfectly. Think about what Home Depot can do if you bring in a paint chip. Their spectral analysis machines let them match the color EXACTLY. There are still a few exceptions though, so do your reseach and find out if the dye lot actually matters for Monique Lhuillier. They probably have a customer service number you can call.

    The dye-lot thing is no longer a big issue. It used to be, but fabric dying is now much more sophisticated and is calibrated by computer. So you don’t have to worry about any more than you do buying paint at the paint store and hoping each can will be the same – they’re all mixed by computer. 

    This is why bridesmaids who are all spread out geographically can each just go to their nearest chain store and buy a dress in a designated color.

    Go for it. Are there multiple sizes of the dress at the store? How different are the colors? I’m guessing it’s not that noticable. 

    Oh, and if your mom’s being a pain on this one, maybe you shouldn’t mention it Innocent

    @MrsWBS:  The people who are saying “don’t do it” aren’t aware of the recent information and technology about dye lots and how they calibrated by a computer, as has been pointed out above.

    There was just a psat recently with a ton of girls saying that the dye lots didn’t matter. Their girls had all ordered at different times or even gotten a used dress from long ago.
