I don’t think it’s really that bad. You’re not going to match every shade exactly perfectly anyway. The difference here is so minimal! You’re just stressing yourself out unnecessarily. And even if you’re not in satin, it’s a classic dress that will go with whatever you wear. It’s still going to match your overall color scheme and look gorgeous, and it sounds like your ladies really like the dress, too. It’s going to be OK!

I agree with @Amaryllis:. To me it almost looks like the difference in colors is because they are different materials. No one will notice or care if their material is different from the material in your dress. To be honest, I think the color of the BL dress will be a lot more flattering on a lot of different skin tones than the DB dress.

If it is something that really bothers you, would you be able to cancel the order at the bridal salon and place a new order with Davids Bridal?

Honestly, the colors are not that different.  When I read the title of this thread I was thinking something drastic, like you ordered blue dresses and they came in red.  Don’t stress about it!

I think I like the “wrong” color better.

Agreed with PP that the color you chose is better.

@SFreeman2187:I agree. The “wrong” color is much more stunning imo!

I think it will look great. I agree, the difference is mostly because it’s shiny. But it is very lovely and still very cafe latte.

Personally, I like the “wrong” color better. I think it has a little more depth to it than the DB one and will look better with a variety of skin tones. BUT I know exactly how you feel- I had to pick the marine color at DB without ever seeing it on the dress we were ordering and it made me nervous.

I think the wedding will be perfect no matter what color dresses the girls wear 🙂 Just watch 27 Dresses and remember how hideous some of those were, and then tell yourself that it’s not the dresses you remember, but the fun you have 🙂
