Hii All,


I ordered color swatches for bridesmaids dresses from Dear Cleo and they are exactly the colors I had envisioned IRL. (Their Ivy color is exactly the dusy sage I have been looking for that doesn’t look too light or minty) That along with their reasonable prices, I’m definitely sold on having my BM get their dresses from them. They seem to be pretty new to the market, has anyone had experiences with them yet? How are the quality of the dresses?

    Can someone please post a pic of the ivy and or pistachio swatches? I’m torn between the two as well & I hate mint sage!

    Hi DiAra,

    Here's my pic of the swatches. The pistacio is REALLY light, almost a neutral with a little bit of grey-ish green. Especially in the bright light.

    The ivy looks like more of a lighter sage in the light, and more of a green in less light. They both look really good together if you wanted to mix & match them.

    Here's another try at the picture. The pistachio is too light for what I'm looking for. I'm either going to go with their Ivy color OR Revelry's Sage:

    I want to post this for any future brides who are looking into this company too:

    I contacted them and told them I was concerned about their lack of reviews and presence on the internet. They offered to video chat with me, and I talked with two lovely ladies (real people!) in their Seattle office. They explained that their company is brand new and currently, all of the weddings they were being used for are postponed due to Covid-19 so they don’t have many reviews because of that. They are also working on updating their website and eliminating any bugs, as well as making the colors for the photos more consistent.
    I encourage people to support this new business!! They were awesome and I’m going to use them for my bridesmaids Smiley smile

    I'm looking for the perfect rust color too - it's impossible! Did you end up finding anything? I'm waiting on my Amber swatch to arrive but I'm worried that it will be too light or too pink.

    Hi Christie! I got the amber swatch. It's SO beautiful!!!! Honestly, I'm considering having that as my color instead of ivy. It's beautiful! It's not pink at all, definitely more of a rust.

    So sorry, I thought I responded to this and now I'm not seeing it. Anyway...I totally know what you mean- I absolutely do not want too pink. But after seeing some swatches I also had to add not orange & not too brown to my list. I know that sounds crazy but I'm assuming you get it. Its been hard to track it down for sure. I got the Amber swatch (in chiffon & satin) and its for sure the closest I've found to the color I've been looking for. Maybe a tad lighter but honestly, its so beautiful! Excited for you to see it & hope you find what you're looking for!! Smiley smile Ah, now I want to talk wedding details! Haha

    Haha oh yea I understand, 100%. You forgot not too red also 😂. Such a struggle. Sometimes I wonder if I’m being too particular - there are hundreds of bridesmaid color options and somehow not a single one matches the color I want.

    I loved their swatches too. And honestly the sage green swatch ive gotten from david's bridals, and Azazie are way too minty! I was also concerned that they have no reviews or pictures of people ACTUALLY wearing them. But the shade of ivy is perfect! not sure what i will do!

    I totally know what you mean. But it sounds like we’re looking for the same color. The color is all over Pinterest but I haven’t been able to find the source of the dresses I’ve seen with the right color. Anyway, my sister got her dress yesterday! It’s great quality & looks wonderful on here. But, I will say...the photo she sent in it looks kind of coral-y. The swatch was def deeper and more rust (in my opinion).

    What I've been noticing with the Dear Cleo colors is they tend to really be "chameleon" colors. Meaning the colors really change depending on the lighting. I have both the Ivy and Amber swatches and I've noticed a difference in the look in different lighting. Especially the Ivy which goes from a dusty sage in bright natural light to a darker green in dim lighting. Amber I don't feel like it looks like coral or salmon, but more of a dark rusty peach.

    I would recommend taking a look at the swatch in the sunlight, it will probably look similar to what it looks like on your sister. Also consider what kind of lighting your wedding will have, whether it's indoor/outdoor or day/night. You might also want to try to get a sample (although they are low in stock) just to see how it would look IRL and try it in different lighting as well.

    I know what you mean and totally agree! They def do look different with different lighting. My venue will be lower lighting so hopefully it'll appear more of the rust than the peach. I just DO NOT WANT PINK or a pastel vibe. Just not my thing. But the quality seems great!

    Isn’t it crazy how color changes so much in photos, even without an intentional filter? It’s so frustrating. I’m starting to wonder if it doesn’t actually exist on instagram, it’s just all super filtered haha. I came across Kennedy Blue the other day and I just ordered their spice and cinnamon swatches. I have a feeling it will be the same problem though. We’ll see!
