Have you told this to your photographer? It could be the quality of your camera. Slight color variations can easily look the same without white balancing and a professional camera. Also, sparkle is hard to capture in pictures. It’s seen as you move around in the light and is only there in flashes. My dress had a good amount of sparkle, but even the designer Maggie Sottero official pictures don’t capture it.

Your dress is gorgeous. I have taken so many pics of me in my dress at the shop and in some it looks yellow and others white! I looked for pics of other brides in Ivory and they look White so I do think it has alot to do with type of camera. The pics you have put up one looks whiter than the other the second pic maybe there looks like a slight colour variation on the top of the dress but this to me just looks like the beading because if you zoom into the pic it looks perfect and no variation in colour which is why I think maybe it is how the beading is coming out in the picture.

@Stacey-x:  not to be rude, but so what if guests take pictures on their phones and the colors look off? Guests will remember what they thought of your dress in person. If you love it in person, and you have a good quality photographer for the day of, stop worrying about how it looks in iPhone pictures with crappy lighting!

It’s beautiful! You are freaking out about the money and looking for an opportunity to back out. And that’s fine. If you don’t want to spend this much money on a dress, you could cancel the order and buy somethign cheaper/2nd hand/etc. BUT – this is a beautiful dress and if you are just having a money freak out try to think about it rationally before making any snap decisions.

You have to be mindful that your photographer uses professional grade cameras so his photos are going to look a million times better and different from the common camera or phone camera, I say stop stressing your photos will come out well.

I’m not trying to be insensitive to your feelings one bit, but I’m really not sure what you are seeing. A lot of times, crappy cameras do this. Hopefully it’ll make you feel better if I share some pics I took of my dress at the fitting, where the bust area looked silver, & then show you the photos my photographer took where it looks totally different & matches the rest of the dresses color perfectly. Remember, this is the exact same dress in both pics:


(At the fitting, where the bust looks silver)



(On my wedding day. The bust looks totally normal & the perfect color match)

I’m having the same dress crisis, my friends said it was all because I thinks too much about it. Well, a lot of anticipation is sometimes just too much anticipation. The more often I look at the pic of the dress, the bigger the doubt I have about the dress. I think it is really true what mrsskeletonkey said, pictures taken with iphone or any compact camera just don’t do most of dresses justice. You dress is gorgeous, it’ll look even better through the lens of a pro
