I am trying to not stress over wedding planning and also trying to not become Bridezilla; however, as all brides know, nothing comes easy with weddings. Things go wrong. I have chosen a color scheme and dress order for my bridesmaid dresses. All the other dresses are going perfectly except one! They are DISCONTINUING one of my colors in my chosen dress! No other color fits the scheme as perfect.
I am in search of a DAVID’S BRIDAL dress style # 83690 Short Cotton Dress with Y-Neck and Skirt Pleating in PERSIMMON. The size needed is an 8, but would be willing to consider a 10 or 12.
PLEASE HELP A BRIDE NOT BECOME BRIDEZILLA (at least over bridesmaid dresses for now)! 😉

ZFaith87: What about the color Guava? They’re pretty similar. Not knowing your color scheme, you could have possibly already used that one or it doesn’t work with the rest of the dresses, but it may be a good backup if you can’t find the one you’re looking for.

ZFaith87: have you asked your local david’s bridal store to look to see if any of their other stores have the dress in the right size? Even though they are discontinuing it, maybe there is one floating around in a store somewhere?
Is there time to change to a different dress style in the same color?

Yes, guava is one of the 4 colors. My 4 colors (in order) are/were Persimmon, Guava, Tangerine, Coral Reef. It is a mix of orange and pink shades. Persimmon is more like a burnt orange and there is really no other color that is similiar. :/

And another yes, my local David’s Bridal is doing everything they can. They checked in their system for other stores and online. They have them in sizes that are not even close to the size I need. They called cooperate to have an override done, going to have them call the buyer to see if they will agree to make an exception. The manager has even googled it for me and is looking at her old client list to see if anyone who bought that dress in that size/color is willing to sell it to us. Lol! They are amazing at that David’s Bridal. They are truly doing everything they can. I give them high praises for helping me in every way possible.
There is time to change dress style or color, but its not ideal by no means for the look I am wanting. :/
