I think ivory is lovely.

Perhaps go to the salon and try on a few ivory sample gowns to get a feel for them?

If you don’t hate ivory (which I don’t think you will) and you MUST have that SPECIFIC dress, I say order it in ivory. <3

I would be wary of replica sites- they’re kind of a gamble. I’ve seen bees post the dresses they’ve received, and while some of them have been wonderful, some experiences turned into horror stories. So if you’re absolutely DEAD SET on a specific dress, you might be a bit disappointed with a knockoff, which is unlikely to look 100% identical to your dream dress.

@lboatnerscott:  That’s why I’d definitely say go try on a few ivory sample gowns, even if they don’t have the gown available that you’re looking to buy.

Honestly, in most cases ivory is so close to white, that unless you’re standing RIGHT NEXT to something totally white, nobody will really be able to tell the difference anyway. At least I can’t.

That looks gorgeous. I think if you want the dress, go for it.

Like I said, unless you’re standing next to someone wearing stark white (and at your wedding that should NOT happen lol) nobody would even be able to tell. 😉

I think it depends on your skin tone. Personally, I’m very fair skinned so ivory looked better on me. I don’t think it would be that drastic of a change [unless it’s lace- usually the ivory looks darker in lace for some reason]. Go to a store and try on an ivory dress by the same designer. I bet once you see it on you’ll go get that sample. Good luck!

Now that I see the picture it looks white to me, but I have a hard time telling ivory and white dresses apart unless there’s something white right next to it.

The dress is gorgeous!  I can’t imagine that a designer who puts that much quality detail in her/his work would choose anything less than a beautiful ivory fabric. 

It seems like you are really in love with this design.  If you get a replica and it isn’t quite the same as the original, you will be disappointed even if the color is perfect.

So, I think you should go for it.  I think you will only be happy in the real dress, and I think ivory is actually much more flattering than white on most people.

@lboatnerscott:  Ahhh Maggie makes gorgeous dresses. I was sure before I got engaged that I was gonna get a Sottero dress, and then I ended up not even trying one on lol.

I’m glad you’ve decided to give ivory a chance. 😉 I honestly have never heard anyone say that ivory was unflattering on their skin tone, so I think you’ll be happy.

Give the ivory a go, it’s pretty close to white!

There probably is a reason why you’re only finding ivory versions of this dress 🙂 It means it was the more popular color, or else why would other brides pick ivory over white? It probably looks best in ivory! Just a thought. I think the ivory color is very beautiful!
