it’s hard to tell. the embroidery looks light in some pictures and really dark in others.

she couldn’t find ivory thread? weird…. 

anyway, i agree that in some pics it looks dark and in others it looks light… if there’s a way to put it next to the dress, that would really help with your decision, i think…

in my mind, my dress is super-light-ivory (almost white) because that’s the way it looks in pictures; but in reality, it’s “normal” ivory, so the sash i had for it freaked me out because it looked “yellow” until i put it up to the dress and wha-laa!!! it was exactly the right color… it morphed to the “white” before my eyes! ๐Ÿ™‚

so with all that said, it does look a little “tan” in the natural light pictures, i agree… however, there’s no way to see how “off” (or perfect!) it is with your dress until they’re together! ๐Ÿ™‚

it’s a gorgeous veil, by the way! she really did an excellent job with the craftsmanship of it! ๐Ÿ™‚ and i love the little crystals you put on there!

When I bought my sash, I wasn’t sure that it would match so I just took it into the salon and asked to see the dress that I tried on and held it up agaisnt it. You could do the same to be sure.

I agree that it is hard to tell from pictures, but I would think that it will go just fine. The veil is so unique and pretty, and your dress looks great on you too! I don’t think you need to worry!

Personally I like the idea of it not being the same shade, then you don’t lose the detail.

@JJsGirl_09: That’s too bad! Maybe if you don’t want to keep it, try selling it off and see if you can get another one that suits the dress better?
