I don’t really like the white on the ivory, either.

But, the shape can be fixed with a crinoline.

My first thoughts: yes, steam will take care of the “dents” in the first dress, and yes, the white appliques on the ivory dress look weird. 

But don’t panic!  Just email them your concerns.  The girls who get the best results from these places are VERY specific with the things they want changed. 

Let us know how it goes!!

Don’t leave it to chance.  Email them and specify that you wanted an IVORY dress and thus Ivory lace over the Ivory dress.

Be specific with everything you want changed.  You’re the customer! 

And it looks weird to a bunch of us, too.  Not life ruining, but just a bit off..

axeyourmakeupkit: said, 

Those dents actually look like stitches to me..

Agree… my first thought was Stitches OR left over Pin Marks from when they were fitting / assembling the draped pleats.

Hope this helps,

I can clearly see the white lace over the ivory dress… It doesn’t look good at all… =(

The white and ivory mix doesn’t look right to me either. Definitely voice your concerns about the color AND the little dents.

I love your dress choices!!!

I am so confused why they would use white appliques on an ivory dress?  I would be insistent to get it changed.

@MrsVandykins:  Just tell them that you specified an ivory dress and you don’t understand why they would put white over ivory because the colors obviously clash.  Then tell them that you also don’t understand why they used such a thick lace when the picture you sent them shows a much thinner lace.  Tell them you don’t want to have to resort to a paypal dispute, but that you will not pay for a dress that isn’t to your specifications and you will go elsewhere if you have to.  I’m sure once you put the ultimatum, they wil come around.

I’m comparing your dress to the original photo and i agree that yours is much more A-line…the original has the dress and ruching very fitted and tight even over the hips. And then the dress poofs out considerably from that. The copy is really not cut like that at all. As everyone else has said, I would voice your concerns and insist on changes. The color of the ivory looks butter yellow on my screen 🙁
