    Where did everyone find their color swatches? Several family members want to know what color blue I am using for the wedding and I don't have anything to show them? I am absolutely clueless on where to find swatches, any suggestions?

    Thank you

    I'm pretty sure that any bridal shop of fabric store should be able to provide you with swatches.

      My bridal boutique gave me a fabric swatch. Since I only had 1, I went to the fabric store and bought a spool of ribbon in the closest matching shade (aqua). I also got a spool of turquoise ribbon (our accent color).

      Then I made a little newsletter for my bridesmaids and close family & friends with a pice of each color. We have asked our guests to coordinate with our bridal party (if they want to) because we are taking group photos and I'd like everyone to match!

      I also tend to lose things so if I can't find the swatch in my bag, etc. I can just cut a new one!

      Erin, that is a great idea. I'm gonna have to borrow it!

        When we ordered and paid a deposit for the bridesmaids dresses the bridal store cut a swatch from the sample they had and gave it to the bride.

          When I ordered my dress, the bridal salon gave me a swatch. If you've made your order already, I'll bet you could go back in and ask them for a swatch.
