LOVE Modcloth! Just wish they carried dresses in my size! 🙂 I too am doing navy dresses and letting the girls pick them (they have to be knee length and no sleeves (though straps are okay) are my only requirements). I think that if you say “buy a navy dress” that navy ought to be the same color everywhere you go. Or, that’s my thinking anyhow. But, even if they are slightly “off” of true navy, they’ll still look great! Good luck!

I am doing navy as well! 🙂 I am thinking you’ll be fine! Navy is usually, like rabbit said, the same wherever you go. I’m sure you’ll be safe letting your girls find their own navy dress. Good luck!

If I understand right, you’re just wondering how it will look if the different shades of “navy” end up looking a little different when they’re all together?  I have to assume that the difference would be so small, people wouldn’t really notice.  Also, I think if there is a noticable difference, it could actually be kinda cool.  I’ve seen it done where all the Bridesmaid or Best Man wear a shade of the same color, and we actually considered this with blue before we settled on a color scheme.

I think it will end up looking just fine. Different ‘shades’ of Navy can’t really be too different from Navy itself, you will probably get ranges from an almost black navy to a lighter (but still dark) blue.

This was actually my original plan, but my BM’s vetoed the idea of picking out their own dresses. They wanted me to choose and to all wear the same thing. So I looked for a navy or just blue dress, but couldn’t find anything I liked at an affordable price.

Good luck!

Have you checked out Dessy?  They’ve got a great selection of navy/midnight dresses.
