heatdisneybride :  My situation was somewhat similar. I got talked into Ivory when I wanted white. I was super worried about it. Also we postponed our wedding so I didn’t see my dress for a year so I was second guessing everything about it. But when I tried it on to take it home, I was in love. It was right. That anxiety is terrible. I was looking at different dresses I could buy second hand it made me so nervous.

I feel your pain I changed the color of the illusion neckline from nude to ivory without trying it on, the dress is supposed to be ready this month or early November (I’m waiting since May) I’m losing my mind, I want to try it on ASAP!! At least I found another gown with an illusion neckline like mine and I like it but it’s not the same dress.

I stressed about the colour of mine before it arrived – I just instantly ordered it in light gold with ivory on top, that was the style in the shop. I then started second guessing myself about an hour later!

When the dress came in I remembered why I’d chosen that colour. I’m sure the same will happen for you!

*Raises Hand* I definitely did. I stressed about my dress up until the wedding day. I kept watching the video and pics of me in the dress when I chose it over and over again and second guessing myself. And then when the dress came in I continued to second guess everything. My last fitting was the Tuesday the week of our wedding, because I changed my mind about my sleeves three times. 

P.S. I adore the light stripes in your dress. 🙂 I am a definitely biased to unique elements like that in wedding dresses. My dress was a true ivory with laced in a uniquely striped pattern and a strip of horsehair tulle at the bottom, but mine has vertical stripes. That pattern is what drew me to the dress in the first place.

A similar thing is happening to me! I drooled over my dress in ivory/nude online, but tried it on in antique ivory, and everyone talked me into ordering it in that instead of the ivory/nude, but all the pictures I’m finding of it are in ivory/nude and I love it so much, I’m worried I won’t love the color I ordered. 

But since your dress has so many textures, you definitely won’t lose any of that detail on the ivory over ivory! I’m sure your dress will be beautiful!

I feel your pain, except I’m super scared about alterations! Tried on and ordered my dress the same color, but it was big. So I’m super nervous about what it will look like after the alterations

I’m in sort of a similar situation as you. The sample of my dress that I tried on in the store was pink (not even blush, just straight up pink). The saleswoman put a panel of ivory fabric underneath the top layer of tulle so that I could see what it would look like in ivory, but even still, some of the beading/embroidery was pink, and I’m having it all done in just gold & silver. I know I love the style of the dress, but it’s kind of hard to visualize what it’s going to look like in ivory instead of pink, so I’m a little unsure of it until the dress comes in!

VERY NERVOUS. Especially because I got a sample dress… The suspense is too real.
