    I really like that dress.  Anything in the pink/peach/cafe shade is forgiving.

    I was. I almost ordered my dress in baby pink but was worried about what the final product would look like and I know the swatch isn’t always the best indicator. I ended up going with a cream color b/c the white was SO white it had a blue hue to it.

    I voted for ivory.

    I’ve never been a fan of white. Something about being plus sized and a negative bidy image and this pesky frightmare about the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man in tulle and taffeta. I haven’t seen any dresses I like in champagne, but I think it’s a beautiful color nonetheless.

    That dress is gorgeous, and I think a champange colour would be amazing! 

     

    I’m wearing grey 🙂

    I didn’t vote because I don’t have a dress yet, BUT I will be getting a champagne or cream dress because I look awkward in white (skin tone has yellow undertones) I just end up looking sick or yellowy lol I LOVE the color of that dress a LOT. I say go for it. It’s gorgeous and will look like a wedding dress still.

    I went with ivory myself. White wasn’t flattering with my skin tone AT ALL. 

    I actually tried on a Champagne and a Blush dress, both of which looked soo much better than white on me.

    I voted ivory/champagne, but if you don’t want a white dress and you don’t feel confortable in white, then don’t wear white. Have you looked at dresses that have embroidery/lace overlay in a color (other than white)?

    My dress is champagne over light gold. I thought it was ivory over champagne when I ordered it, but it is actually light gold. I haven’t gotten it yet, but I really think I will like it and it will make it unique! I say go with the darker color and be remembered 🙂

    I mainly chose white because I pictured my mother having a fit about a different color but seeing as how she is already crazy about this wedding I should have maybe gone for ivory

    It still looks like a wedding dress! It doesn’t have to be white to be bridal. If you feel uncomfortable in white it will show. Get what will make you feel great!

    I love your dress! i do not think some people can pull off white. To me, the most flattering color is like an ivory or cream. The color of the dress I will be getting (i haven’t bought it yet but can’t wait too!) is called champagne, but it doesn’t look as dark as yours. And the color of it looks different in natural light and salon light. So i am posting pic of both..lets hope WB doesn’t eat them!
