Hi all! This is my first post to the Bee, so if I’m approaching this incorrectly, please let me know and I will fix any problems.
I am trying to work on a color scheme for my summer 2018 wedding and I fell in love with this color. However, I can’t identify it. Some sites say it’s indigo blue while others say snorkle blue or teal.
Could you lovely bees help me identify the shade? Thank you so much.

my dad’s camaro is about that color… it’s called marine blue in the case of his car. It’s gorgeous.

It’s definitely NOT teal. I’ve never heard of “snorkel blue.” I’m not sure what I would call it exactly, but the pp’s label of “marine blue” seems to fit pretty well.

It’s a beautiful color choice, btw

The maker of the dresses calls it Island Paradise.
Pantone calls it snorkel blue
I would call it teal blue.

Marine blue / Snorkel blue.
Indigo is more purpley, and those dresses aren’t greeny enough for teal.

I would say it’s a soft royal blue but Pantone says snorkel blue.

yeah – I’m with you. I was going to say ‘muted royal blue’ describes it quite well. I’ve never heard of snorkel blue before.

Thank you all for your thoughts!!! I really appreciate it! It’s so nice to find a community like this. 🙂
Ooh I would love to have a car in this color one day, haha.
Thank you so much and thank you for your thoughts…marine blue seems to be a consensus here.
Wow, I can’t believe you found the designer! Teach me your google ways, haha. Island paradise might be hard to get consistent across the wedding, I suppose, haha. 🙂
I was thinking indigo would be more purpley too, but then I wondered if it was my eyes, haha. Thank you for your thoughts!
I had never heard of snorkel blue before either! I’ll look into soft royal blue!
Thanks for your reply! Since both you and sunnyland said a soft/muted royal blue, I’ll be sure to look into that color too, since I hadn’t seen it mentioned before.
