My MOH accompanied me when I went to order my dress. We saw a picture of a bridesmaids dress that we thought would look nice with my dress. As luck would have it the store had it on their rack. She tried it looked like a glove. We loved it! BUT the designer didn't have it in a color that I was looking we held up the different color swatches up against my dress to see if it would work (really--how can you tell with a 4 inch by 1 inch piece of fabric). I only felt luke-warm about the Cafe color and was a little bummed since I loved the dress. So I began a search for another dress convinced that I didn't like the color that we looked at. Well I had made my way back out to the area where the bridal salon is (about 3 hours from my home) to check out a photographer and decided to pop in the store again. I wanted to see what other colors they had and see the Cafe color again. I asked if they had a dress in stock that was in the Cafe color. They did so I was able to compare a real dress with that color against my dress and it looked awesome. It brought out the gold tones in my beadwork. YAY! Crisis diverted. It isn't a brown Cafe color but had more of the gold tones (I really didn't want brown in my wedding).

On a positive note--my dress will be in the shop 7 May--I'm really hoping it will be sooner but I won't hold my breath. My consultant is so excited to see my dress (i think just as much as I am). It's red and she is just tickled that I am keeping it a secret from everyone except my mom and MOH.

I love that you're going with a red dress!  I'm sure it will be the wow factor of the wedding.  I think the two colors will work out perfectly if the pics are any indication of the two colors!  Are you getting excited yet?
