AngelineRose:  You hit it on the head. The ivory over ivory will not show the beautiful lace detail. The ivory over champagne will.  Your FI doesn’t know what he’s talking about on this one, sorry!  In your professioanl pics your dress will look white maybe ivory at the darkest.  The ones that tend to look a little darker are the ivory over oyster, in my opinion.

My dress was a Casablanca ivory over champange although not lace.  I will show you several pics of the champagne liner but the camera makes it look mucher darker than it does in person. I will also show you pics of the ivory over oyster lace dress I tried on.

White and ivory are basically the same color.  You’ll be fine.  That dress is awesome, and your fiance is not going to notice the day of…

I also posted a similar lace dress in ivory that I tried on but it was an Allure.  It was very dirty though so I think the color is a little darker than it would be. I will post again here

Men are stupid and fickle. Lol. I’ve read on here a 100x that grooms say something and than love the dress. I would defiantly stick with your first choice!

my dress is casablanca 1900 in champagne and ivory. the last dress is 1934 in ivory over ivory. this is a sample dress so it is dirty and its from i believe 2007? so its been around for a while darkening and dirtying the lace. i think the only place you can really tell my dress was “champagne” was the sash. i too agree the lace gets lost in pics if there isnt enough of a contrast.

also to add in there i think casablancas champagne is more of a flesh/pinky tone than brown.

AngelineRose:  What skin tone are you?  Hair color?

I’m pale with blue eyes / dark hair and I LOVE IVORY OVER CHAMPAGNE.  If your fi was hating on ivory dresses, that’s just ivory dresses. Ivory over champagne is an entirely different story. Ivory over champagne (or blush, which I’m assuming is very similar) is so soft and delicate and feminine. Do you have any pics?  

 

I’ve tried on two ivory over champagne/blush dresses and loved them both… and one of them ended up being the one.  No regrets!
