    I like the purple better, but I feel like the lilac may be better universally if they all have different skin tones.

    OT but what designer is this?

    First, they are both beautiful! I’d say think about your BM’s skin tones. If they are fair skinned, the lilac may “wash them out.” I think the richer color is flattering to more skin tones. Also, think about your wedding venue/theme/ etc. Does one match better?

    The lilac looks blue to me, so if you’re going for a purple theme, you should pick the darker one.

    Purple!  I tend to always like brighter/deeper colors.

    Do you have any other colors picked out that it would need to coordinate with (flowers, linens, decor, invites, etc), or will you work around the dress? What about any other details on the wedding (evening/day; ballroom/outside, etc)? Both colors would go well with a purple theme; it’s a beautiful dress.   Which color looks better next to you?

    @sunflower2014:  If you have someone who’s that fair, maybe the purple would be better. It may also pop out a bit more with your reception venue. Thank you for the designer!

    I like the purple. The lilac looks almost bluish

    I’d go with the purple. I’m fair skinned with dark hair and although the lillac is pretty it would really wash me out! They are really pretty dresses:)

    the lilac is beautiful if you’re going for a softer look but the purple is such a unique shade and really pops! My Maid/Matron of Honor is super pale and that was her only dress request that it not be a soft color!

    I chose the lilac because certain purples just scream Barney to me.
