They will be fine! I was investigating lapis as a color for my bridesmaids (love the deep purple too!), and yes – I did find some photos that rendered as blue, some that rendered as purple.

I think the best person to bring this concern up to is your photographer – let him or her know how important it is to you that things look purple, not blue. They can be extra aware of lighting and surroundings to capture the purple, and if any photos do look blue, during post-processing they can adjust to correct back to purple.

Just do a search: https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&gs_rn=11&gs_ri=psy-ab&tok=rJJ9qjdUNaXoIC9QtKfM1Q&cp=17&gs_id=1u&xhr=t&q=davids+bridal+lapis&rlz=1C2WCCE_enUS530US530&bav=on.2,or.r_qf.&bvm=bv.45645796,d.b2I&biw=1366&bih=643&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&ei=ndR-UYeMMsma2gWL7YC4CQ

There’s some real wedding photos in there, and I did see a couple that looked a little blue, but for the most part they look purple to me!

Just FYI… several of the David’s colors photograph differently than they look. I used Regency and it played some tricks on my eyes. Sometimes it looked purple, and others it looked blue just based on the camera. A lot of my cell phone pics looked VERY blue and in some of my wedding pics, they look blue – but you can tell it’s purple.

My MoH and my bridesmaids will be wearing lapis. I don’t have the links on this computer, though, but they’re from David’s Bridal.

My girls wore lapis, and the guys wore lapis for their ties (with grey suits). They definitely turned out purple in photos, no question.

@Tutti80:  I wanted the same exact Dress in the lapis color because the purple looked so pretty on the computer.. When I went into David’s bridal with my bridesmaids so they can try dresses I was drawn to the plum color.. The lapis looked nothing like the color on computer.. It looked like a blue/purple and the color looks a bit flat, like how flat paint would look with no sheen to it..I didn’t like how the plum color looked on computer but it was that dark purple i originally wanted. I included a pic of a sash in lapis color.. I also included a pic of the dresses that my bridesmaid had on in plum.. My wedding color is a dark purple eggplant color and I think the plum matches the eggplant color perfectly.. Last pic is the eggplant color I will be using.. Hope the pics help you out with the color.

@val_toro:  I ended up with plum too, although I started out wanting lapis. Plum looks like it has red undertones when you put it next to the lapis, but on it’s own, it is a very pretty deep purple in its own right.

@NAvery:  yes I agree plum on it’s own its a beautiful purple color And I’m happy i chosed it instead..In the end It all depends on what exact shade of purple is preferred.

@val_toro:   This is off topic, but what color is that pink dress on the left? Is it Watermelon? =)

My girls are wearing plum. My DB had dresses in both colors in the store.   They are both pretty dark.  Plum has more wine colored undertoned, and lapis looks more “grapey” like grape candy

@Tutti80:  We wore Lapis for my friends wedding almost 3 years ago… here is a pic of how they photographed… as you can see, it’s definitely purple-y, but the different fabrics photographed slightly different.
