I’ve been searching every online website possible for wedding dresses for a while, and I’ve seen many that I like. I’m not a fancy ball gown type of girl. Our wedding will be a relaxed beach ceremony, and Fiance will be wearing khaki. I’m just wondering if anyone has bought their dress online, and if so, I’d like to know about your experience! I’ve heard many people say, oh you have to have the experience of shopping with your friends and family and blah blah blah, but I just don’t care much for that. And I’ve seen quite a few wedding shows, not to mention have shopped for many gowns in my day and I HATE the gown consultants. You tell them what you want and what you can afford, and then they bring you something $5000 over budget.
Also, I found a gorgeous lace dress online, only I hate it in white. I hate pretty much any lace gown in white. I feel like lace is vintage, and it doesn’t look vintage in stark white. Ivory and champagne however win my heart. I mentioned this to Fiance and he doesn’t like the idea of not having a white dress (although I don’t think he’d notice a difference between ivory and white). It’s the champagne lace gown that I don’t think he’d be okay with… and to be honest, I don’t know how I feel about it as a wedding gown. I absolutely love the dress, but I want to feel like a bride as well. Has anyone worn a dress that is not white or ivory, and if so can I see some pictures! I’d also like to know what your family and friends thought of not wearing white.
Here is the champagne gown:
