The colour is definately brighter, more redish, than the pic depicts but it was still absolutely fabulous to look at.
I felt a million dollars and quite the Mother of the Bride while wearing it. I got complimented over and over on the exquisiteness of my choice and many have taken the web details of where I bought it.
The dress is gorgeous - simple but very beautiful! I had the dress custom made, and it fits perfectly. Lenght is a bit too much, but that is easy to fix. I received the dress in 3 weeks from my order date to Northern Europe. Very very satisfied!
