    Hi Ladies,

     

    I've chosen teal as my main color with fuchsia and white flowers. Well, I chose this color because I do love the color and I thought it would be more flattering on my MOH than a fuchsia dress. Anyway, I've been having the darnedest time finding teal dresses and sashes. Most designers consider a peacock blue or dark turquoise looking color teal. I'm looking for a greenish looking teal.

     

    I really wanted to go with a dress from the dessy group - After Six or Alfred Sung because they have so many options for men's accessories. However, they no longer offer teal in any of their dresses. So, I found a color Caspian that looks okay but then there is the matching items for reception. I'm falling short. Then, I came across their color Oasis. Well, in some pictures it seems more green than Caspian but I've never seen Oasis myself. They did not have it at either bridal salon I visited. So, I'm not sure how it differs from Caspian.

     

    In the picture, Caspian is the more shimmery satin on #3 and #5. It looks bright in the picture but in person it was a bit darker.

     

     

     

    This is Oasis. As I said, I'm not sure of what the color really looks like in person.

     

     

     

     

     

    So, I continued searching and I came across Alfred Angelo tealness which appears to be the shade I've been looking for.

    Problem is Alfred Angelo doesn't make accessories for men AND I can't seem to find any chair bows or table runners in this shade.

     

    So, I wanted to know if any of you ladies chose teal and/or did you go with any of the above designers? If you did, what did you do for matching reception decor and groomsmen accessories?

     

    If not, what designer did you choose?

     

    HELP PLEASE!!!!! I'm so stressed!

    I too had a similar problem.  I choose the color turquoise for the girls dresses and everything else.  I had no problem finding a dress in that color but trying to coordinate all the other decorations and what not soon because a hassle as nothing seemed to be the exact same color as each other.  I found that I just had to end up going with what was closest and realize that not to many people will notice if the color is slightly different.  You could also use different colors to accent so its not so noticable of the color difference.  As to linens I found this site has the most options, try looking there to see if something will work.  Plus, you can order swatch samples from there to find the color that is closest.

      Hi JayKay,

       

      I've searching and I did come across the same site you posted. The guy said he has a color Oasis which is comparable to David's Bridal Oasis. I went to the store and it's definitely closer to the teal color I had in mind. I am just not a huge fan of their dresses so hopefully I can find a color in the Dessy group that is very similar and go from there. It's just so nerve wrecking. I just went through the same thing with the invites! It seems never ending.... Thank you for you advice.

        I didn't have teal as my color but I choose coral and was having a SUPER hard time matching things... So I am having custom made dresses with the color coral that I could match... Maybe an idea for you?
