That’s awful, I’m sorry! Can you find it used in white? Or would you rather just find a new dress?

Wow, that’s a gorgeous dress.  Is ivory the only other color or do they have other shades available?

I have noticed that a lot of dresses seem to have a “twin” dress made from another designer-or very similar-and the bees are great with helping identify a dress from a photo.  Perhaps there is another made like this from another designer that you can get in white???  Help bees!!!

That is a gorgeous dress. I 2nd lilyfaith‘s idea of getting it used. Can you ask for a swatch of the Ivory? Sometimes “Ivory” isn’t pure white but still a really white shade (not the yellow that we associate ivory with). Can they get you a sample of the material?

That really sucks!! Have you seen the ivory color…is it way dark or is it more like diamond white? my dress is ivory, but it’s not a really deep ivory color.

I’m so sorry.  That’s crazy that it took them so long to figure it out!

How can they not make a wedding gown in white!? That’s ridic. I think the ivory looks nice too though, in the picture above.

I know it’s not what you wanted, but I think the ivory is beautiful and would probably flatter most if not all skin tones! Definitely ask for a swatch so you can see the exact shade in person before you decide to ditch the dress.

That’s not right that you can’t get your deposit back…it’s not your fault, it’s theirs!  I think the ivory is beautiful, though, and will probably look wonderful with your coloring.  This may be one of those things that end up turning out right in the end!!  I’m crossing my fingers!Smile

I have a hard time telling ivory apart from white except when it’s next to white.  Ivory is more flattering to pale complexions anyway.

Can you try calling the designer and expressing your extreme displeasure and frustration?

Also, if it’s someone else’s mistake, you are absolutely entitled to your deposit back.  It really doesn’t matter what they say.

I second the idea to try to see if the ivory is ok to you.  Maybe you could call around and see if anyone has a sample from that designer in ivory that you could go try on.  Usually you would never even guess that the dress was considered “ivory” unless someone told you, it’s really just a more universally flattering shade of white.

I wouldn’t go by photos, a lot of ivory dresses look white in pics. If you tried it on in ivory and didn’t like it, I wouldn’t expect your dress to be any different. I’d suggest going back to try on the sample and decide if the ivory is one you can live with.

Also, I don’t see why you can’t get your deposit back if you choose to take your money and go somewhere else. You didn’t change your mind, they promised you something they can’t deliver!

I feel they should give you the deposit back if they can nto fill the order for the item you put a deposit down for. You put a deposit down for a WHITE dress
