I just ordered my wedding dress a few days ago, it is a Casablanca, crystal taffeta material in diamond white. I originally wanted to order the white. The lady at the boutique talked me out of ordering the white saying that the diamond white looks better on. I am upset and worried that I made the wrong decision. I would like to see if any of you girls out there have pics of a casablanca dress on in diamond white, taffeta fabric if possible. I am tan and have dark brown hair and I am just worried that the diamond white will look too ivory colored and look dirty on. We also have ordered white linens and chair covers so I am hoping that wont look bad either! I would appreciate any feedback!

@Zoie00: ok, i dont have Casablanca diamond white. but i ordered a maggie sottero in diamond white and i have somewhat tan skin. i dont know how dark i am compared to you, but i am certainly more tan than my pale white friends! i am half egyptian. and i also have drak brown hair. and i personally liked diamond white MUCH better than any white or ivory dress i tried on.

That material is the “soft taffeta” also as the consultant called it.

I purchased a Casablanca taffeta dress in diamond white too. The sales lady advised me to and said most brides choose diamond white over white. She said that “white” dresses looks gets a washed out look in photos. I thought the dress I had on was white but she said it was diamond white.. so I couldn’t really tell the difference until she held up a white dress next to it…it doesn’t look ivory at all to me…

I also ordered a Casablanca in Diamond white and I am a little nervous about it since I don’t know what it would look like. Like in your case the consultant recommended to order diamond white.
Getting my dress in April so I could post pictures of it then. 🙂 (what I tried on was ivory)

The dress I actually ordered that I tried on was in ivory too which i did not like on me. They did not have a diamond white or white to try on in the dress I ordered. I tried on another dress in diamond white casablanca just to compare colors. To me the diamond white on looked pretty and looked white until next to something white. Which I want my fiance and the groomsmen to wear white, so I hope it wont look bad! Our linens and everything are white also. I am still worried about the color too and I am sure I will be until June when my dress comes in! But from everything that I have read and seen, it seems like diamond white is a popular color and looks beautiful on!! I am sure when you get your dress in in April it will look gorgeous on you!! I would love to see pics! Best of luck!!
THanks to all of you who posted your pics in your dresses! You all look beautiful in your dresses and make me feel better about ordering mine in diamond white!
