Does anyone have any real life pictures of bridesmaids in Bill Levkoff dress in VIOLET??? Or at least, have any knowledge of what the color will look like (besides the swatch)?
I am panicking! I ordered the violet color but I was never able to see anything but the tiny swatch. After doing some research, I am realizing that the colors look much diff on the website than they do in person. I literally scoured the internet and cannot find any photos besides the one on the bill levkoff website. I am really scared it is going to be too light!! I attached a picture of me and how I am hoping the BL dress in Violet will look. Any help would be much appreciated!!!

I don’t have any advice on that designer but Im not gonna lie, that shade of purple in my eyes is lilac… not violet (however I know designers have their own ways of naming…and Ive googled the designer you have and the same colour pops up so you should be fine). Are there any stores close to you that carry his line you could go in and see a random dress in the colour?
BUT…. my wedding is technically violet and its a much darker very rich colour…for example:

I agree with PP that the colour of the dress you posted looks lilac or lavender to me.. my girls are wearing a Social Bridesmaids by Dessy dress in African Violet, and its a much darker colour than that.

Haha, I totally agree! Bill Levkoff should not have named it Violet, because it really isn’t a violet. However, my colors are grey and lavender, so I think it works. I should also note, that I am using succulents instead of flowers for my bouquets. So, I’m hoping that might make it more colorful. I guess my biggest worry is that the BL dresses will be so light that they will drown me out 🙁 Thank you for helping me out guys! I really appreciate it .
Any additional opinions/pictures are still very much appreciated as I am still an obsessive bride 🙂
@Moonbear17 Thank you so much! My dress is a Romona Keveza (Fall 2013).
