Anyone using Lapis color from David's Bridal?

This is such a deep purple I feel like I'm having a hard time matching it.  Does everything have to match exactly?  I'm doing ivory table cloths with purple napkins and the centerpieces will be a green wine bottle with a candle inside.  Bouquets will be ivory roses and green orchids.  Did everyone's invites match the same purple?  Mine are a lighter metallic purple pocketfold.  I just feel like I'm all over the place.

I am using this color for the dresses, only because it was the only purple that came in the dress my bridesmaids ended up loving.  It originally wasn't the kind of purple I wanted, and when I was trying to match everything to that color, it just was not working.  Now, I am using various shades of purple throughout my wedding (decor especially) and so far it looks nice... so I think you will be fine!

It was a very hard decision for me regarding what shade of purple to use... I was going actually thinking of lapis from david's bridal but ended up choosing regency instead since lapis looks like navy blue when i took a picture of my bm wearing it... So like blushingbride I  think that varying shades of purple will be okay...

I'm using lapis. I'm using many shades of purple and grey so I really didnt think much of it 'matching'

I am using lapis for the BM dresses. Initially i wanted the table clothes to match but dont seem to find the exact color. Decided to go with ivory table clothes, lilac overlay, ivory chair cover and lilac sashes.

Yes, I will agree David's Bridal lapis is a very hard one to match exactly. I can give you a few ideas from ordering experience.


Wedding Linens Direct "eggplant" color is a near perfect match.


They carry chair sashes and overlays in both organza and satin.

JoAnn's Fabric has eggplant organza ribbon with a thin satin edging that is an exact match. 


Now I'm on a search for the perfect eggplant napkin and gels for my uplighting...any ideas?

YES im using this color as well, and like kendran, none of their dresses are the same style. Matching colors is very difficult, so I just decided, no more trying to match everything perfectly. no one will notice

<-----------Lapis light here! Ivory and Purple are mine, I will be using various shades of purple as well i think it will be fine.  However this brings a good question:


BM bouquets are purple (look like wild flowers) will have a hint of pink and an ivory flower added.  Will this be too much purple as their dress will be Lapis????


I will have an ivory bouquet,  now i am thinking that it should have been the other way around????????

Our colors are Purple and Silver, originally I was thinking about using Lapis.  It does look a little to dark for me however I have been looking at the eggplant shade as well as African Violet...


I thought I was going to purchase bridesmaid dresses from Priscilla of Boston that were similar to a Lapis color.  However when I got to the store I asked to see the dress in the color I saw on the net and the lady told me that it doesn't come in that shade, it's really navy blue...I was heart broken...lol...she then later said that sometimes the color swatches look one color on the internet then they actually are...


So def take pictures of the fabric you want and make sure that it doesn't look red or blue if that's not what your going for.

Girls with BM dresses in Lapis - what color are you BM bouquets? My bouquet is going to be light purple roses and originally I was thinking of having the girls bouquet's cream/ivory roses - but now I'm thinking I should add some light purple roses as well to give them some color.


Thoughts?

Amy - I think that good! Yours should be colored, theirs should be cream/ivory.  Although it would be nice to add some of the colors(flowers) you have from your bouquet...

I'm not doing Lapis, because I felt like it would be too dark for my wedding. But I think its perfectly fine to do different shades, just as long as they kinda tie in with each other :)

I'm using Lapis, Regency and Lilac.. from David's Bridal.. I absolutely love this color pallet. My sisters wearing Lapis, my bridesmaids wearing Regency and my nieces are wearing Lilac... Check out those 3 colors together next time you are at DB.

I guess I'm a little bold because I chose to add orange with my Lapis BM dresses. I didn't go with DB tangerine because it was so bright. And I'm using silver as a accent color.

I felt like Lapis was too dark (more navy-purple)... but on the web site it does look like a viable option... just not purple enough for me.  I fell in LOVE with Regency instead, but it seems like you can get everything in it... very disappointing.  <3 David's Bridal though, even if the saleslady did lie to me :(

i'm using lapis, lilac and wisteria with silver accents. these are the exact colors of my fav flowers, moon carnations which is also my bouquet. instead of making my brides look like "barney" we went with different shades of purple. to me matchy matchy starts to get cheesy and look cheap...my bm's flowers will have white with hints of purple...

Is the lapis color from David's bridal a shade of purple or blue? I've been looking at it online and it looks great and fits perfectly with the shade of purple I want but I've been reading that lapis is blue... :S
