So, I ordered the bridesmaids’ dresses from China myself from Dressz.com – they were more than helpful, very communicative and they had all 4 dresses made and shipped to me within a month.
My mistake was confirming the wrong colour for the dresses.
I had originally planned a more “aged avocado” shade – Hunter Green. When I got the swatches, I even confirmed the numbers with them to make sure I knew – but I did it by email on my phone.
That being said, instead of the dresses matching this swatch:
I got my dresses in this colour (excuse Fiance, he was being a pretty pretty princess, lol):
Now, I’m not freaking out – I promised myself I wouldn’t and I put an immediate call in to my Maid/Matron of Honor who calmed me somewhat, but with everything going on in my life right now, it just sucks, yaknow?
Sorry for the rant, but I felt like you guys would understand.

Ugh! That sucks! Can you dye them? Maybe do some kind of trendy ombre to avoid dying the pretty white detail?
Or start adding in little details to the wedding in the shade of the dresses. That way everything looks cohesive.

I know its no help, but I like the accident color better.

I’m so sorry. This sucks so badly.

Oh no! Good for you for not freaking out! So sorry. I hope you can manage to work that color in or that it still matches. I think it’s a very pretty dress and I really like the color. I think it could still match the other green shade in your wedding.
AND was it definitely your error or could it have been theirs? Maybe you can get them re-made?

@Beaukat: I don’t know what your other wedding stuff looks like but I love your accident. very pretty color…perhaps with some shifts in the accessories and flowers itll work out?

I like the accidental colour too! It’s more of a sea green as opposed to a forrest green. Much more feminine 🙂

i too agree the accident color is better, plus i really love when different shades of a color are incorporated into the weddding. i think you should be fine.

Yay for staying calm! Does the shade match ok with your colour scheme?

Ooooo, yeah I’m no help either, but I really love the new color! I think it will photograph better than the other color and doesnt scream “I’m a bridesmaid” as much. Its so pretty and makes me want that color now…
And I LOVE the look on your FHs face lol!!

I also like the teal/torquise color better too. I think you can still pull off a hunter green in your floral accents or in your centerpieces 🙂
