My dress came in last night (yay!!) and I still love it (yay!!) BUT – it’s a lot more “ivory” than I remember…
A little background: I tried the dress on at a bridal shop in NYC but ordered online from Netbrides (saved 20% – woohoo!). I was told at the bridal shop the dress I tried on was ivory, and I thought it was great so that’s what I ordered. The dress I received last night seems a lot deeper ivory than the one I tried one, so I’m wondering if the dress shop made a mistake when I asked? There’s nothing I can do about it now of course, but what do you guys think? Same color in different lighting…or different color dresses?
FYI – Working with Netbrides was AWESOME!! The mistake (if there was one) was RK Bridal (who were a pain in the ass to deal with every single time!!)

They definietly look like different colored dresses in those pictures…it looks almost gold (very pretty with your skin tone). i’m guessing your dress is the one on the right? I would take another picture in a well- lit room or with natural light to compare.

Not going to lie – those have to be different colors. On the bright side – I love the darker one on you better! I would have said that without reading the post.

It’s really hard to tell, but I’m leaning more toward RK bridal making a mistake on the color of dress you tried on.

That is definitely an ivory color.But i’d check it in a better lighting, too.
However, you look slimmer in it!!!! I’d go with it, haha.

I’m thinking your original bridal salon made a mistake is color. That first photo of the dress looks diamond white or somewhere between white and ivory, and the dress you received is definitely ivory! It’s really good that you still love the dress though and are excited about it, because for someone who really truly had her heart set on a white dress, that could be a real bummer. Are you okay with the color, I hope? Regardless, it still looks great on you!

Honestly, now that I’ve looked at the pics again I really do think the ivory looks much better on you color wise than the white anyhow. It could also be that the ivory dress fits you really well too, but it looks fantastic!

I agree that the darker color looks better on you. I think it’s two different colors.

It’s definitely an ivory color but I think it looks absolutely fabulous on you!

I agree with everyone…the dress is ivory, but it looks bettter that the white!

Personally, I would be upset, because I am not ok with wearing ivory. If ivory is what you wanted from the start anyway, though, don’t sweat it. You look great!

I like the darker (ivory?) one a lot more than the white one. It looks great on you!! I do think that the orginal dress you tried on was white.

The colors might be different but honestly, it’s hard to tell if it’s the dress or the photos. It looks like the first photo was taken under bright fluorescents while the 2nd one is at home under normal bulbs. Even your skin looks tanner in the 2nd photo. Any way to get a photo under natural lights?
Either way though, the dress looks fantastic on you so I wouldn’t worry about it.

The dresses definitely look like different colors, but I think the second one probably isn’t as dark as it looks in the picture because it looks like the lighting is pretty dim in that one. Given that, I agree that the second one looks great on you regardless of the color.

I think the person at Rk Bridal was wrong when they told you that you had on an ivory dress, because that def. looks diamond white to me, and the other one you got looks ivory, but I agree the ivory one looks better on you. =]
