I think it’s find. I don’t have a picture of me in my dress yet because I justnought it and they don’t allow photos at the salon. But my dress is ivory over light gold and it definitely has a little pinkish hue too. I thought it went really nice with my skin tone and so did my mom & grandmas

My dress was ivory over light gold and I love love LOVED it! It fits a lot better with my skin tone than white. Frankly, I would have liked it to be even more gold. Unless it’s very plain or something, there’s pretty much now way you could mistake it for not a wedding dress at a wedding.  

Shamelessly throwing on (color) photos to give you an idea of how it turned out in real life, away from the wedding boutique of white dresses.

@Newgirl87:  It’s tradition here too. Do you have a picture of it? You can totally tell my dress is not white. Especially when it’s up against the white dresses. But it probably wouldn’t look as off-white if it wasn’t up against white. Did you see yours against all of the white dresses and is that what made it look so champagne/gold?

My dress is champagne and it’s gorgeous!  I was a little torn at first – I contemplated getting it in ivory.  My theme is vintage/rustic (I’m getting married on a plantation) and I wanted to be a little different.  My mom even liked the champagne color over the ivory.  I know it’s tradition to wear ‘white’ but that tradition is being broken by a lot brides.  At the end of the day, I would wear what YOU want and feel beautiful in.  After all, it’s YOUR day 🙂

My number 2 dress was a deep champagne color and I loved that about the dress. The only reason I didn’t buy that champagne one is because of a back detail on the one I bought fit my personality more…not the color! I absolutely love champayne colored dresses and feel they are very bridal in a dramatic way…think royal bridal lol.

Eek. I tried on a “champagne” Maggie S dress (the salon called it champagne but MS calls it gold on the website)  and I wanted it soooooooo desperately.  It was so beautiful in gold! I also had some good reasons: everyone said it looked great with my skin tone; I loved that it was “different”; I didn’t want to go with all ivory without seeing it in person. They didn’t have a sample of the dress in ivory over ivory which made it difficult to compare!

I went to try the dress on one more time the day I bought it and I was positive I was going to go with gold..However, I did decide to go with ivory over ivory because it did seem more wedding-y and also, my venue is very bright & white… I didn’t want to be appear “dingy”…. and also, the girls in the boutique talked me into it 🙂 They said the ivory over ivory is actually really beautiful and I won’t be dissapointed.

Here are some photos… She is holding up an all ivory dress for comparison sake… and lastly, my venue (the big reason I went with ivory!)

I do LOVE champagne/gold though.. Sigh!

my dress had ivory lace over champaign colored satin. The sash is a darker gold colour. I thought it worked fine for me, but there was enough ivory that you coudln’t really tell the under color in the pictures.

I didn’t have one but I think they are lovely. A champagne wedding dress can look just as ‘bridal’ to me as one that is white. First off, I tend to think the style itself is what really sets apart a dress from looking bridal and not bridal. Obviously color can play a part too, but if the dress has a style that does not look to evening wear then I don’t think you can go wrong. Besides, every bride has their own vision for themselves, and some bride’s even do wear evening gowns and it still looks bridal on them becaues they’re the bride. If you love then I would say go for it. If you are concerned heavily with having dress regret, look around some more and see if there’s anythin you like better in white or ivory. Compare how you feel in the two colors, which one grabs you more. In my personal experience, you can never go wrong if you really follow your gut the first time.

I wish I had a better picture of me wearing my gown…not just blurry iphone ones!  Also, I haven’t gotten it altered yet, ekk.  & sorry that it’s sideways, I suck at computers.  

I purchased Maggie Sottero’s Milana gown in champagne/gold & I couldn’t be happier.

It actually caught my eye on the rack because it was a different color than all the gowns I had seen/tried on.  I love vintagey things & artsy style.  As soon as I put it on, my best friends instantly said, “that’s you.”  If you feel comfortable doing something a little offbeat–then go for it.  If you are hesitant about it merely because it’s not the norm, then don’t.  You want to feel perfect & beautiful on your big day, not worried you might have made a wrong decision about your gown.

Another thing to think about would be your skin tone.  Pure white gowns could make you look washed out if you are pale, like me!
