Ok, I just recieved my wedding dress and im having second thoughts on the color. Its Allure 8634 and its in a more antiqued or creamy ivory color with more of a whiter ivory lace overlay. Im a little nervous about the color choice in that my fiance might not like it or that it wont match well. Any other brides/brides to be going the same color route and have pics? A litte input would be great!

My dress is straight up not white. My rule is slap a veil on anything and boom, bridal. I’m super pale so a white dress didn’t go well against my skin. A blush/sand dress looked better.

Yes mine is cleary not white eiter. The under neath is a champagne color and the lace is ivory. I think that im a little nervous that others will not like it or people will talk. When i got it i bought it online from preownedweddingdresses.com and was able to try on the dress at a local bridal shop, I thought it was the lighter ivory one but turned out to be darker. So when the dress arrived i was a little shocked that it wasnt the color that i was expecting, but i think that im slowly comming to terms with it.

@Jules0218: I don’t think so! Bright white isn’t flattering on most people, and for me personally the darker the dress the better I looked!

@Jules0218: My experience is that most guys don’t perceive a difference between ivory/light cafe and white. My FI has never commented on it and he’s pretty dress savvy/traditional.

Mine is called magnolia which is a dark ivory. Sounds kind of similar to your antique ivory.

@Jules0218: I googled the dress and it’s sooo gorgeous! I’m super picky about wedding dresses (hate strapless so that’s like 90% of dresses out there) and that one is amazing. I looked it up in your colour and love it even more. I wouldn’t worry, I imagine that you’ll look amazing 🙂

I don’t like those stark white wedding dresses. They remind me of a piece of computer paper. Sexy, right? I have a dress in Alabaster and though for sure my MIL would say something (very religious family) and she didn’t. As long as the color is a shade of white then I think it’s okay. Now if it was purple or something people would probably say something. But in the end it’s YOUR & HUSBAND’S day, not anyone elses. 🙂

@Jules0218: I googled your dress, I think it’s beautiful and I like the contrast of the lace and underlay. I know how you feel though…I have two dresses one is Ivory but I think it’s more of a butter cream and I’m afraid it will come across as yellowish 🙁 And my second dress is Antique Ivory and it has lots of ruffles, to me the ruffles look kind of dirty!! But when I look at the dresses as a whole and while on me, they look amazing. Try not to focus on the color contrast but the “big picture”. you picked the dress for a reason, it’s beautiful in my opinon!!

@Jules0218: BEAUTIFUL dress! Personally, I think off-white shades suit most people, and I find stark white reminds me of toilet paper…. Don’t flame me!

Nothing wrong with being a little different, and you don’t need to match either.

@Jules0218: I tried on that dress and loved it. I think the colors are stunning. It sets off the beautiful lace well.
