I have a dilema. I purchased Maggie Sottero Aurelie in antique gold (which is a champagne color) for our October wedding. I LOVE my dress, so I don’t have actual dress regret, I guess, but I am nervous about what my fiance will think of it. A few minutes ago, as I was looking at another Bee’s post who happens to have a dress that is almost identical in color to mine, Fiance looked over my shoulder, and said something along the lines of “That’s not white. It’s more like the color of a bridesmaid dress.” Now I’m really concerned with what he will think when I’m walking down the aisle. I want him to think I look beautiful on our wedding day, not be thinking that I don’t look like a bride. There’s not much I can do now, as the dress is already purchased and paid in full. I guess I’m looking for affirmation that I still look like a bride… I don’t know

First, this color is AMAZING! especially for fall! Second, when you walk down the aisle, he will probably be thinking, “Oh my gosh here comes the beautiful woman I get to spend the rest of my life with!” Not “Hmmm…The shade of her dress makes her look like a bridesmaid…” Also, if the color in a picture on the internet can be way different than real life. You know what it looks like, how beautiful it is in real life, so what he saw on the computer was all he had to go off.
Take a deep breath. You will be beautiful and your husband will be blown away!

@Ashley0118: I’m wearing champagne and I sometimes hate saying so because people’s faces drop as if I’ve just announced I’m going to bounce the aisle nude. However my dress is beautiful as is yours, and in that dress you couldn’t look anymore bridal! Relax.

Thanks, everybody. You all made me feel so much better. I guess I just needed to hear that I looked good in it from someone other than my mom.
