Oh me, I know I can help!  I was in your position this time last year! 🙂  My Maid/Matron of Honor tried on a very similar dress to the alfred sung dessy one above, and I think the shininess of it also made the blue look more like purple. Here’s that one:

And then here are the ones we actually chose, alfred angelo’s 7122 (I think they’re satin and cobalt blue with a navy blue sash, though you can change the sash to cobalt blue as well if you wish):

And then an outdoor photo:

Hope this helps! My girls paid about $130 before alterations for their dresses.

Some of my girls wore a cobalt blue. Their dresses were from different stores; Target, Overstock.com, department stores, etc. Prices were anywhere from $25-$250, I let them all pick whatever dresses they wanted so long as it was “blue.”

I’m looking for Cobalt blue sandals/flip flops to wear on a beach.  Do you know where I can find those?

I had cobalt blue for one of my wedding colors as well.  I went to David’s Bridal, and ended up going with some discontinued dresses in “blue velvet.”  Supposedly, it is only a tad darker than the horizon that they replaced it with recently.  Here is what my BM’s looked like:

@Alleycat: You’re welcome.  You can also order a sample fabric swatch from them, in case you want to see those first!

My girls are wearing Bill Levkoff in Horizon. It’s a different material (chiffon) but hopefully you get a better idea of the color. It’s gorgeous in person, I actually changed my wedding colors to accomodate this dress. 🙂

@pengoala:  Hi, I LOVE the Alfred Angelo 7122 dresses in this cobalt blue color you’ve got here. Do you know if “cobalt blue” is what the colour is actually called? I’m a total amateur at this but would you happen to know where to get this dress in this color online. Or if you know the full name of this dress in the proper name of the color, I’m going to go to the local bridal stores to ask about this dress.

Thanks for your help!!
