    Hi

    Can anyone help me with this, I need to choose a colour for my bridesmaid dresses and I want turquoise, but have been told to choose from a chart

    Can anyone tell me which is the closest to turquoise from the chart, I quite like 11 but think this is more of a teal but am not sure (not very arty in any way, shape or form, which includes colour )

    Thanks for your help

      36 stands out to me...but it is so hard to tell. There are lots of variations.

        Yes that's what I was worried about, how close the colour is to the actual picture of it.

        Thanks for your help

          36 is definitely more turquoise, 11 has too much green. I hope this helps.

            36 looks more turqoise. You should get some swatches because you will be surprised at the color difference.

              Yea, I would say 36 or maybe even 47... i think you better get swatches because every computer screen is going to be a little different...

                Thanks for your help everyone, I think I'm going to go with 36 as I don't think i'm going to be able to get swatches. As long as the dresses, once they come, look nice on the girls, I won't mind if it isn't exactly what I had in mind. I will post piccies once they are here.

                Thanks again

                  36 is definitely turquoise - 11 is teal
