SO! I went and changed my order to a Divina…and I was thinking I wanted blush, but when I saw the color swatch (omg it was so small I can’t even be sure how it would look) I was iffy so I thought I wanted the Ivory to be safe.
Which color is better?Keeping in mind my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are cornflower blue and groomsmen tuxes are grey.
Help me save my sanity please!! I don’t want to keep going back and forth, and I know that if anyone/anywhere can bring me peace of mind- it’ll be you ladies here!
I REALLY want to wear pretty like crystal ish accesories and a black belt…
ETA: Does Silver Jewelry clash with Ivory? I don’t like gold 🙁

I think it depends on the blush. My dress photographs blush in some lights and ivory in others, so it doesn’t bother me that it doesn’t look white 100% of the time. Do you think you will regret not wearing white? The divina on the model (in blush) looks pretty pink, but my dress also looks gold on the model (which it definitely isn’t) so its tough to tell if that is really how it will look.
ETA: I can post pictures of the color of my dress, but I’m not sure if it would be helpful because the materials are different.

If you really want to do the belt I would do a white or ivory dress. The blush or pink dress to at a color belt may take away from the color that’s already in your wedding dress..

Ivory — especially if you want a belt. I think the belt will “pop” better with the ivory. That being said, the blush is an absolutely beautiful color, I just don’t know if I could personally wear blush on my wedding day (and, I’m a huge pink fan!). I’m always in awe of the girls that do.

does silver/crystal jewellry clash with ivory? I don’t like gold. I think this is one of my concerns too 🙁

any thoughts on jewelry, ladies?

I think blush gives the dress an incredible wow factor that ivory wouldn’t. But, ivory is more traditional.

I wore white gold jewelry with my ivory wedding dress and it looked great. I can see why you like the blush, but with your color scheme I really do think ivory is going to look better with everything else. And the other bees are right that the belt will pop more with the ivory.

i think ivory with silver coloured accents is just fine.
if your bm dresses are cornflower blue, i’d stick with an ivory dress. the light blue and the blush together is too baby showerish. when you add in the grey tuxes, too much going on.
stick with a neutral.
i love the blush in this dress but only if everyone else was going to be in neutral blacks or charcoals.

I think ivory with cornflower blue, grey and silver accents sounds beautiful. Blush and cornflower blue might look a little..cheap..

yeah, I guess you’re right! I was thinking that blush would look great with blue and grey… I would definitely go for the IVORY in this case, unless she changes the bridesmaids color to a light grey?

Thanks ladies! I LOVED the blush when looking at pics, but when I went in, I was not too into the small color swatch, so I picked Ivory… I keep looking at the blush pictures (I know, BAD me) and had a bit of doubt for a while there, but I think you ladies have put that to rest.
I do wish I had a bit of color in the dress.. maybe I’ll do a cornflower crinoline that can’t be seen during ceremony but do a front bustle for the pictures to add a bit of “fun” to it 🙂
Glad I can still do my silver 🙂 thank you! (I often question if it has to be gold with ivory but really this ivory specifically is not too far from white)

Silver and crystals look beautiful with ivory. I used to wear gold jewelry and now I wear all white gold and silver.
Yellow gold is back in style in fashion this fall.
I personally think the crystals look better in silver.

@happyface: ugg lol don’t get me started. I’m actually having bridesmaid dress regret, since they already got their dresses 🙁 I’m now worried that the shorter dresses won’t look good with my Divina. UGGGG whyyy did I rush?!?!
