I’m planning a September wedding and originally wanted eggplant/dark purple as my Bridesmaid or Best Man dress colors with orange accents in flowers etc. Now I’ve found the dress I want, and the taffeta color choices are limited. I’m choosing “sapphire” which is blue, but kind of has a purple shimmer to it. I don’t know what to do for my color choices throughout, esp the flower girl dresses. I don’t want to get official flower girl dresses, as they are so expensive! I’ve been looking on Zulily and thinking I can find something when Easter dresses come out. Since we already ordered our invtes, we kept the purple on those. Now I’m thinking I could have eggplant/navy and then the oranges/fall colors for flowers?
Advice please! This is not my strength! Thanks!

Do you have a pic of the sapphire blue dresses?
If it is the traditional sappire, like this,
you can use it along with eggplant and orange or burnt orange. Blue and orange are opposite on the color wheel so are complementary colors. Blue and purple are next to each other so that combination works too.
I found this dress which is called sapphire, but does have that prurple undertone you mentioned.
Have you looked at http://www.theprefectpalette.com ?
You can scroll down on the right, click on your color and see all the palettes they have developed featuring that color.
