@CutiePie10489:  I just googled that dress.  It is gorgeous!  I love it! 

Why does he want you to wear ivory or white?  Why does it matter?  Is it the symbolism, or the tradition?

That is a georgeous dress! I’d bet money that on the day the last thing he will be thinking is “I wish her dress was whiter.”  My FI probably wouldn’t even notice the difference between blush and ivory unless you held two dresses up next to eachother.


I say don’t worry about it!

Pft, my husband peeked on my gmail account and saw my actual dress after telling me that he didn’t like the ones styled like that, THEN tried to tell me that he was joking and like my dress. Eventually I tuned him out because I knew that on the day of when I’m wearing my dress, veil, jewelry, and I’m all done up he would love it.

Don’t worry! My FH put his foot down and said I can ONLY wear a white dress, and once I showed him photos of blush dresses, he said, “oh, those still do look like wedding dresses.”

Your fiance is going to be blown away when he sees you. The dress you picked looks like it’s straight out of a fairytale — so gorgeous! He’ll be thrilled.

The dress is so beautiful and so will you when you are wearing it.  😉  I think with men, most have an “idea” or “image” in their mind of how our dresses should or should not look like.. whether be it through what they see on TV, magazines, or other weddings they have attended.  But at the end of the day I think they all get blown away by how gorgeous their bride is on the day of that they forget all about their previous thoughts.

it is so close to white, I wouldn’t worry about it. is he really that color sensitive? I bet that if you told him “blush” he might be picturing something super pink, and not the beautiful subtle color that your dress actually is. 

the dress you chose is absolutely gorgeous! honestly, I think most men would get teary eyed upon seeing their bride for the first time no matter what they are wearing.

That dress is stunning! When he sees you in it, he won’t even remember that he wanted white or ivory! Enjoy your dress!

@CutiePie10489:  firstly I googled that dress = gorgeous! Second, when you walk up the aisle I’m sure FI wont even realise what colour it is, he will be focused on you his fine to be in a matter of minutes, I think the  dress come as a second afterthought.

i would KILL for a blush dress right now. In fact I’m half contemplating replaving mine with Maggie Divina.

youre dress is stunning. You’ll look back and realise it was on trend at the time but still elegant and stylish.

@CutiePie10489:  I wouldn’t worry. I showed my husband a pic of a dress that looked almost identical to mine and he didn’t like it because of the lace. guess what?  On the day he was speechless and his first words were that it was perfect.

its not the dress, it’s you in it that will blow his mind. 🙂

I actually almost passed up my beautiful blush dress because I was self conscious of people judging it not being white, not necessarily my FI. But then I relaized that it stood out because it is unique and such a beautiful color! I think blush photographs great by the way and photos will matter most in 10 years!

Go with whatever makes you feel best. My FI seems to also be under the impression a lot of lace looks ‘table cloth-y.’ Maybe some does. But not all. I will be wearing a french blue lace overlay over my dress, and I think it will be pretty. Not like a table at all! I am all for changing up the tradition and getting gals in some colors! I told my FI of the blue, and he seemed a little surprised, but I am sure he will like the dress when he see’s it on me. I think it is about time ladies started wearing more blush, pink, champagne, blue, etc. on their wedding day. I am sure you will be a beautiful bride on your wedding day, and he will think the same. Pick whatever makes YOU happy.
