I like it with the ribbon tied in the front!

I think it’s beautiful, but I wish they’d clipped you in a little tighter; it’s tough to envision how it would look on you in the correct size. The website photo is stunning though, I can see why you fell in love with it.

I like the ribbon both ways for different reasons, I think it depends on what look you’re going for. Darling Husband just leaned over and said he liked it better tied in front, so there’s a guy’s opinion if you want it, lol.

Are you looking for ivory or white? I find the lace around the bustline doesn’t stand out quite as much in the ivory (which is what I’m assuming the sample is).

It is beautiful, and I’m sure it would be even better once it fits you below the bust. I love the lace, especially around the neckline.

Wow, that’s a pretty dress.  I like the ribbon in front too.

I normally vote for ribbons in the back, but on you, the ribbon in the front look is perfect!

@winnie22: If you’re concerned about ivory vs. white, try on the dress in both! They wouldn’t even let me order my dress in white until I retried it on in both ivory and white just to be sure I really wanted white. And just know: most women do get ivory these days. It’s looks better on most, whereas white tends to wash out a lot of women. There are, of course, exceptions like me–ivory washes me out, whereas white makes me pop!

@winnie22: That’s a good plan! And yes, your dress definitely looks very white and still very bridal, which I’m sure is what you and your grandma are looking for.

If you’re still worried, just try on another dress to see what the white looks like on your skin tone. That’s actually what I did, and I was able to rule out the ivory and the style!

Keep in mind the inspiration picture is taken in very bright studio lighting, so you’ll want to take your venue lighting into consideration when deciding between white and ivory.

I actually think white would look amazing against your skin tone and might suit you bit better than ivory, and a yellow ribbon would pop more against it as well. BUT I also know I had a huge opinion about ivory vs. white for my own dress, so whatever makes you feel beautiful and like a bride, go with it 🙂
