So I was so excited after getting a call from our consultant that Priscilla of Boston was indeed starting to make the dress we had picked out (Vineyard style 1515) in navy and went in today to get everything organized so that the girls could call/come in with their sizes and turns out it’s not even available in Navy!!! I was speechless and angry! Luckily we’ve still got 6 months to go, but I now need to come up with another dress. I like short dresses for the most part, and love chiffon, satin, really any fabric other than cotton
Does anyone have any suggestions???
Thanks for your help!

Have you checked out J. Crew at all? They have all kinds of dresses in navy!

That is so frustrating! I really do not understand why, if a company sells dresses of the same material in the same color, and has to custom make all dresses anyway, why they cannot do it in the color you want. I’m sorry I don’t have any suggestions, but good luck! Priscilla of Boston Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are some of my favorites, so I feel your pain.

What do you think about something like this? it’s an alfred angelo & you can get the sash in the same color as the rest of the dress if you want.

I got my girls dresses from Dessy- After Six. They have many types of dresses in a variety of colors. Look at the midnight color!

Thanks so much ladies!
@u.p.girl – I checked out J.Crew once in person, Fiance wasn’t crazy about the cotton cady but I may make another appointment to check out their new spring line!
@vegan-I know right!
@MrsMenard and Miss Farmer – thanks for these suggestions, I will definitely check them out!
Keep the suggestions coming!

I know I saw Mori Lee had bridesmaids dresses in Navy. And I’m looking at j.crew and their navy dresses for my girls as well! Good Luck with your search!

@vegan, the reason why they cannot do that dress in Navy is because the flowers are a different fabric, and sometimes they can’t get the colors to match, It can be frustrating, but I would rather the dress look good than bad becasue the colors won’t work. (I am a consultant for Bella Bridesmaid, so i know how the process goes) and btw, I am not sure who you talked to at PB, but they never made the dress in Navy.
First off what kind of style do you want? Do you want straighter skirt or a line? whats your price? Have you looked at styles 1415, or 1502 from PB/Vineyard? Those are both only $188, and they come in a beautiful navy. I have seen both in person and they are lovely on all body shapes. I sell them quite frequently.

Not a typical bridesmaid dress, but I’m completely head over heels in love with this dress from Modcloth:
it’s out of stock right now, but they’ve had it for a while now and they always restock it pretty quickly! I have been lusting after this dress for months!

There’s are a couple Alfred Angelo and Mori Lee styles similar to that POB. I’d check out those 2, they both have a bunch of cute, short dresses. Also Dessy, but I think someone already said that.
