It’s hard to tell in the picture, but IRL my dress is nude with white tulle. It looks more oatmeal-y color in person. I came in knowing I didn’t want white or ivory dress and that I wanted a sheath. I originally ordered a different dress and immediately regretted it and luckily the store was able to switch it. I had a mild regret with this dress too because I was rushed into ordering. But I’m making a few changes to it, so I think I’ll be happy with it in the end.

I’m still waiting on searches but anticipate getting this bridesmaid dress  dress in taupe, which reads between silver and champagne. I’m a second time bride and didn’t want white, didn’t want the ball gown, wanted something simpler. This is perfect for me!

I also ordered swatches in ivory, champagne, and peacock blue – my favorite color. 🙂

I ended up wearing ivory, but I thought about.  I’m not a traditional person- I’m an avant garde artist always looking for something different.  I choose a nontraditional engagement ring and lots of aspects of the wedding were not traditional.  However, nonwhite dresses are trendy, and I felt that everyone kind of aspected that of me.  So I surprised all of them by wearing a ivory lace wedding gown.  It was a darker ivory because I’m so pale and it was way more flattering, but still in the traditional realm.  I loved it!

My dress is nude and ivory. In some light it looks quite nude, it other lighting it looks more ivory. I say go for whatever color you end up loving!

I’ve been bouncing between a blue or pink dress- thats long sleeved. I think I have to stick with Pink – as the color is great with my skin and our party is in May. I’d wear the blue if it were going to be a winter party.

My dress is whisper pink.  I tried on a few white gowns and while the dresses were beautiful, the stark white just washed my super pale skin out even more.  As soon as I put this dress on, even strangers across the store were exclaiming over the color on me. The pictures don’t do it justice because the store lights were so bright.

No pictures of me in my dress yet, it comes in early September, but I will be wearing a white dress with black lace. I tried on a few fully black dresses and other colors with black details. I knew going in I’d never get a fully white dress. I don’t own anything white, I don’t like white, and I’m very pale so I’d look like a giant snow mound.
