I’ve fallen in love with a wedding gown that’s a freakin’ steal from a consignment shop. The only thing I’m worried about is that the gown is champagne-colored and not really ivory or white. I still love the dress, and I love the way it looks on me, but I’m scared of how it will photograph. The whole ‘it’s not white’ thing doesn’t bother me a bit b/c I realized early on in the shopping process that traditional white just doesn’t fly with me for some reason. But in my head I pictured ivory, not champagne.
Did anyone else have a champagne-colored gown? Personal experiences with how it photographed? Any advice or thoughts would be appreciated!

I don’t have one, but, if you love it, get it. I’m sure the pictures will be gorgeous.

I personally thing champagne is gorgeous. But if you want ivory, think long and hard. A friend of mine had a gold wedding dress and it was just beautiful. Classy and elegant.

Mine is champagne too!! But unfortunately I have no pics of me in it, and I don’t get to wear it for almost 10 months! When I tried it on I fell in love with it, but was worried about the champagne color as well. The people at the store did a good job convincing me that the designer made it that color for a reason, and ivory or white wouldn’t have the same effect (for the record, it’s available in ivory and white as well, so I don’t think they were just trying to get a sale out of me). So I say go for it, and then post some pics!

My gown is champagne sateen with ivory lace over it. I love it, and think I will look amazing in photos:

I have a champagne colored gown and in the fitting pics I have taken it just has that aged vintage look. I am very fair skinned so that looks best on me because I look like a ghost in white.

Mine was champagne-colored but definitely came out looking white in photos.

I want a champagne dress, too! 🙂 They’re so pretty! Carrie’s dress in the first SATC was champagne, now that I think about it.

Don’t worry about it! Champagne is such an elegant gown color. It’s timeless, and certainly no one will wonder whether you’re the bride!

I had one! I don’t think that most people pay attention to the exact shade of your dress 🙂

Mine was champagne with an ivory colored lace over it. It photographed pretty much like ivory. I really loved the champagne color and almost whish it showed up more in the photos….but it was really pretty in person.
