@Merinda1994:  If you love the dress in pearl, then get it. It’s your day, wear what you want 🙂 Congrats on finding “the one”

@Merinda1994:  TOTALLY FINE.  I’ve seen some awesome, more colorful dresses on this site (and on celebrities!)

Heck no it doesn’t!! Mine was a subtle blush and it was wayyyy more flatting on my pale skin tone than stark white would have been. I got a lot of complements on it!!

It definitely doesn’t. Not to mention not everybody’s skin tone works with bright white. Go with what looks best on you!

@Merinda1994:  It can be any color your want it to be! The Allure gown on you is beautiful. I decided to steer clear of the traditional white dress, too.  I went with a Marisa gown (Style #953) that is Ivory lace over Cafe. I love the contrast and that it isn’t like every other gown.

@Merinda1994:  That dress is a great color and gorgeous on you!  No, you absolutely don’t have to wear the standard white/ivory.  You should wear what you want to wear.

I’m wearing blush.  😉

@Merinda1994:  That dress is gorgeous and you look amazing! I love that colour and am thinking of going with a light gold/champagne/pearl coloured dress too! It definitely still looks bridal…I have similar colouring to you and I thought it just made me look so much more alive than ivory. I think you should go for it if you love it! It’s your dress.

I don’t think a dress has to be white or any shade of white in general. But personally I think Ivory and Pearl etc..are shades of white…I don’t understand when some people get all upset about a dress not being white…when it’s ivory! LOL. I just don’t get it?!

I love that pearl shade, my own dress is ivory, and I’ve seen some lovely blush, gold, and champagne dresses too! I think wear whatever you love!!

@Merinda1994:  If you’re unsure about whether or not this dress is your dress, it might help to shop around just a bit more.  I figured out that my dress was mine when I kept comparing all of the others I tried to it.

And I also chose mine mostly because it really looked good with my skin tone!  I looked a bit sickly in the shades of white I tried on.

ETA:  Thank you!  🙂

@Merinda1994:  I LOVE that pearl color!  It looks amazing on you!  I think its more common now for brides to wear colors that may not be white or ivory. I wish my dress had came in that color, I would have loved to have it!

I ordered the Allure 8955 in champagne because it looked way better on me than ivory or white.

Although I did just get a comment this morning from a coworker… “is it ok to not wear white for your first wedding?”  Ugh OF COURSE IT IS OK haha!
