Hey Bees, I have a small problem. I found a bridesmaid dress that I like from David’s Bridal, which is great. However, our colors are navy blue, white, and champagne and the groomsmen are wearing navy tuxes. The closest to that the dress comes in is Marine and I’m worried that the blue of the dresses won’t match the blue of the tuxes. Is it close enough for me not to have to worry about? Should I keep looking? If so, what are some good places (preferably not online, but not completely opposed) that all of my bridesmaids can get their dresses in navy? All but one are out of state so the big perk with David’s bridal is they’re literally everywhere so they could all go in and pick up their dresses at any point.

MsSparrow: The dresses do not have to be an exact match. In fact, the whole look will likely be more interesting if they aren’t.

Depending on where you get your tuxes from, Davids Bridal and Moore’s do colour matching so you know it will be fine.

MsSparrow: My BM’s dresses were the Marine from DB. It is most definately navy blue. Not the best picture but in the back ground is one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man in the marine dress.

Thank you all! I suppose it wouldn’t be too much of a disaster having two different shades. We did think about changing the shade of the tuxes and will do so if we don’t like the Marine shade and the navy shade of the tuxes side by side. I’m going to go in and compare within the next couple weeks.
Sassygrn: thanks so much for your picture! That shade looks perfect, so I’m not too worried anymore. You and your bridesmaid look gorgeous, by the way!

My Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses were DB marine. We went with Men’s Wearhouse and the navy tuxes matched perfectly. I can’t remember the designer/style number of the tuxes but Men’s Wearhouse will know if you tell them DB marine is your Bridesmaid or Best Man dress color.

I’m a Bridesmaid or Best Man and we will be wearing the marine color which is on the girl on the far right. And it definitely seemed navy to me!
Another place to look online would be weddington way? They have a ton of dresses by different designers. 🙂

I used DB marine for my wedding as well and I was worried about it too. The swatch online is terrible. Once I saw it in person, it was definitely a true navy blue!
