Hi everyone. I just selected my wedding gown (yay!) but cannot decide on which color to choose from. It is the Mathew Christopher – Sophia dress. The sample gown was champagne with ivory lace. You have the option to order an all ivory dress as well. They happened to have one at the store that a customer ordered so I could see both but could only try on the champagne and ivory gown. My dilemma is should I go with the more traditional all over ivory color or choose the champagne and ivory color to show off more of the lace detail? See pic of me in the champagne and ivory. The second photo is of both colors. The all ivory on left and the champagne and ivory on the right.

While I love ivory (since I chose that for myself), I think the stunner is ivory and champagne! It would look more couture and you look good in the champagne/ivory dress! 🙂

Champagne with ivory! It makes all the incredible detail way more visible!

@Arodef: Champagne! I think you won’t see that extraordinary lace work with the ivory/ivory option.
ps. that dress looks bonkers good on you. Like wow.

@Arodef: Champagne! I am partial to that choice though since my dress is similar and I ordered it in Café with Ivory Lace. (pic below)

The champagne, please! It makes all the beautiful lace and design details pop, and it still looks absolutely bridal and in the traditional white range to me.

Ugh, I see your dilema… both are beautiful. I personally think the ivory looks more classically bridal, but the champagne makes the lace detail stand out.
I almost went for a peachy coloured dress, but ended up backing out and choosing something ivory instead because when else will you wear the white/ivory dress again in your life? Is it something like this that is holding you back from the champagne? In the end you just have to go with whatever makes you feel the best.

Normally I am all for ivory, as I feel like a bride should wear ivory or white on their big day.
But in this case, I’m gonna say the champagne. The ivory is also gorgeous, but the champagne makes it easier to see the lovely pattern and detail in the gown, plus, it’s not too far away from ivory.

Champagne! I agree that it makes all the detail of the lace stand out.

I’m gonna be unpopular and say go with the pure ivory. You can wear a gorgeous champagne dress anytime non-wedding, and I think the champagne can look a little vein-y. The lines on the ivory are still going to work for your figure even if they can’t be seen individually from a distance, and a good photographer is going to catch all of that lace detail no matter what.
