So, I am having my 6 bridesmaids in 3 different colors: Blush, Mauve, and Merlot. Two girls in each dress, and they can pick whatever style as long as it’s floor length and not one of those see-through overlay skirts. It seems that blush and merlot dresses are super easy to find, with lots of selection. However, that is not the case for mauve. First off, mauve is one of those colors that seems to mean something different to everyone. I’m not looking for a purple tone, I want more of a pink tone to match the other girls… So I’m finding that most dresses that closely match my idea are called “Dusty Rose”, but sometimes those dresses aren’t quite right either. It’s driving me nuts, to the point that I’m thinking of eliminating the color entirely and putting those two girls in something like taupe or one merlot/one blush. But, the two girls getting mauve really like the color, so I’d like to try to find dresses in that color before moving on. SO, my question to you all is…
Have you found an online dress manufacturer that is awesome? I know about Lulus.com, and they have a couple mauve dresses I like, but they’re not in stock of course. I just stumbled across Tulle & Chantilly, ColorBridesmaid.com… which have sort of what I’m looking for, but am unsure of quality/customer service/etc. Any other suggestions would be lovely!
For reference, here is the color I am looking for. I am not particular in it being a perfect match, as all of the girls will have a slightly different variation of blush or merlot… I’m going for a mismatched but coordinated look.
Thanks for reading, and thanks for your input, Bees!
