@lmoss78: Is it possible it comes in any other colors? And she ordered it in the right color?

Why would you wait to say something?  Maybe she can call the company right away and change the color or cancel the order.

You should definitely say something to her now.

Why don’t you just call her back or send her an e-mail and say something like:

“Hey, just looked up the dress you ordered online. It looks like it only comes in blue. Were you able to order it in yellow or gray/black? Just wanted to make sure since I didn’t see that option on the website.”

I agree with PPs. Call her up ASAP so she can either confirm with you that it is ordered in the right color or she  can cancel the order. Once it’s already shipped and received, it’s much more of a hassle.

I tried to set colors for people other than my bridesmaids to wear…it didn’t work. Both moms and sisters and grandmas wore clashing colors and none would change. It was pretty frustrating. The bridesmaids wore the dress I picked in the color I wanted though.

@lmoss78: If you already told her what color the dress should be, then checking in on what color it is in no way makes you a bridezilla. Just better to let her know as soon as you can so she is still able to return it if it is wrong. At least this way she’ll know not to take the tags off if the color is wrong.
