I am interested in what other Bees have done about finding and using jewel-toned or “bright” purple bridesmaid dresses.
I’d love to see any pictures you have, or hear any input about what others have done!
For more specifics on my situation, I have looked at David’s Bridal, and the lapis color seems too dark for what I’m interested in, and the regency color photographs too blue, but I definitely like the prices of them. Other colors I have considered are by Mori Lee and Jordan. These are definitely the price points I’m interested in, and I’m not interested in finding dresses at a department store, although I’ve seen some pretty ones at Nordstrom.
Any help is appreciated!!!!

I got these at DB, still might be too dark for what you’re looking for though.

@Misstnt That’s a pretty color! What is the name of it at DB? Is that a regency dress?
@FutureMrsChaney I haven’t stopped by Alfred Angelo yet. I did send away for the book of swatches, and there were NO tried and true purples in it! I’m glad to hear that there are possiblities there, though!

I’d take a look at Dessy! My girls wore Dessy After Six dresses and they were really nice and quite affordable too. They had a ton of color options so I’m sure one will fit what you’re looking for!
EDIT: Maybe “majestic” in the Dessy Alfred Sung line. Or “African Violet” in the Dessy After Six line or the main Dessy Collection.

What about David Bridal’s Sangria? It is like a magenta purple. See the thread I posted here:

I just went shopping this past weekend with my maids and this is the dress they chose. It’s a beautiful different shade of purple. Sophia Tolli style 110022. Hope this helps.
If anyone can help me find a jr bridesmaid dress to match or tell me where to look. I’ll be forever grateful

@Bride_2011: I’m sorry I don’t really have help to offer but I was just wondering, I also ordered the swatches from Alfred Angelo but it seems like it’s taking forever to ship. Did that happen to you?

@SenoritaRita3: It didn’t seem to take long to ship for me, but I swear mine contain no purple like I describe. (Or, I think there was one jewel-purple, but it was only in a very few styles?).
I’m interested to see things in person now, though!

Hi my girls and guys were in Dessy’s African Violet in Duchess Satin. It turned out really nicely in the photos and was really affordable. The girl’s dresses were tea length to start with and were about $150 each after taxes.

The color name is plum…and I don’t remember the line. It’s tafetta….and it comes in like 4 different styles. If you do a search on DB by color and click on the plum color swatch, the dress will come up. It’s the only one(s) in that color. 4 different styles but all my BMs liked the halter best.

Loving that Nordy’s dress!! Love that purple!
I really love the Grape color from Alfred Angelo, just not their material!
