I’m in a bit of a panic here, and I’d deeply appreciate any advice anyone has. I went to order my flower girl dress the other day, and apparently it will take 12 weeks (which is *just* after the wedding itself, so not the tiniest bit useful). The dress I’d wanted is David’s Bridal H1256, in Regency. All the rest of the bridal stuff is ordered in Regency already.
I really don’t want an ivory dress for her, and neither does she – we really want purple. But the only option from them we could get in time is Lapis, which is just so dark and doesn’t really match anything else. I’m open to another style, but DB says they can’t do anything in that colour in time, and I have no idea what other colours will be close enough. I live in Canada and can’t get to a DB in person to compare colours, and given that we’re apparently already too late (who would’ve thought it would take as long for this small, simple dress as for my wedding gown!) there’s not really time for ordering swatches, etc…
Help?? Any suggestions? Thank you!

@teleute: I needed a gown for my junior bridesmaid that matched the gown my daughter chose for the wedding. While there wasn’t a DB anywhere around me that had the gown I needed in the size and color I needed, they were able to tell me which store DID have it in stock. I called a store in Georgia, paid for it over the phone, and received it two days later perfectly packaged and exactly what I expected. It’s a sample, but I don’t care about that and I don’t think my niece does either. She’s just happy to have a pretty dress. 🙂 Did you check to see if ANY DB store has it in stock?
By the way, it was the exact same dress in a different color that I ordered! 🙂

PP had the BEST idea… if that doesn’t work, you might try online for another color… amazon has lots, some of the dept. stores might have things. But I’m betting trying to get another store to send is your best bet; my Maid/Matron of Honor had to do this, and it worked out fine.

They did check, and no one has it. Apparently they don’t stock that color at all – if it’s ordered, it has to be cut from that point. 🙁
I’m okay trying for another store/dress, but I just don’t have any way of matching the purple. Anyone know which other colours are the closest match? Grape from Mori Lee, maybe, or Purple from Anfred Angelo, or African Violet from Dessy, or…?
