- Wedding: July 2012
I’m about to place the order for my wedding deess and I need advice! I wish I were more decisive all on my own, but alas, I am not 🙂
We went to the bridal shop yesterday and finally decided on the Casablanca #2029 dress in the link above (and in the attached pictures). The Casablanca #2017 was really nice too, but it was just alot of dress and to be honest, I think it would have looked better on someone who isn’t pushing 32+ years old! 😉 I had a younger friend try it on and it looked better on her than it does on the website model, seriously to die for, but on me, the puffy lace skirt just kind of seemed less out of character for someone my age, very princess like, even if I had removed a few layers of tulle from it. The Casablanca #2029 just felt more like me and comfortable overall. I haven’t placed the order yet because I’m still trying to decide on the color and this is why I’m in need of some advice. The dress I tried on and that is in all of the pictures is the “diamond white with ivory lace and silver embelishment” color option. My mother told me that she likes that color and not to order the true white dress with the white lace option because it’s more old fashioned, but I think that the true white is what will look best with my Bill Levkoff Pewter colored bridesmaid dresses. My complexion is olive, so I’m not worried about the true white color washing me out or anything like that, both would look nice, just not sure which to order. Keep in mind that the color that appears in the pictures show is “lighter” than the color of the actual diamond white option.
Is anyone wearing a Casablanca dress that is satin with lace? Did you order the diamond white color or the true white color?
