Talk to a seamstress, changing the underlay could be a complicated process or an easy one depending on the dress. The ease of the alteration and time it will take would vary the cost. Have a seamstress or a few, look at it to explore your options.

Do you have any pictures? I would think ivory over champagne would still be a nice contrast. My dress is ivory lace over a gold/champagne and i had the opposite problem. I thought my dress would be too dark and wanted ivory on ivory. I started thinking about whether i could change the underlay, but thought it would be pretty expensive since you’d basically be making and buying a whole other dress to go under the lace. 

Have you seen the dress in the color you ordered? As long as its not ivory on ivory there will be a color contrast and the lace will stand out!

After my terrible seamstress cut my underlay too short when hemming, she offered to re-line my dress. I didn’t take up that offer because it seemed like a heck of a lot of work. I imagine pricey to have done but sounds like re-lining it could be an option if your heart is set on it. A seamstress would know more though if possible. I love the look of the two tone lace and underlay. Good luck!
