- Wedding: December 2018
Hello Bees, I really, desparately need some advice here…
I’m getting married very very soon (11th May) – the whole wedding has been organised at pretty short notice due to overseas relatives all being in the UK at the right time so we just went for it – but it’s been a mad dash to get everything (i.e. DRESS!!!) sorted!.
This is the dress I have bought https://goo.gl/images/mig4sT which is a very pale ivory and it’s currently being tweaked for the final sizing. I also had a bespoke lace top to go over it made by a different person in Scotland and it arrived today…I specifically ordered ‘Soft White’ chantilly lace (and had a sample sent through to confirm this was the right shade).
But, unfortunately the lady made the top in ‘Ivory’ which is significantly darker…I love the top but I’m concerned that it’s too dark to match the dress and looks odd. I’m severely running out of time! (we actually leave to go to the wedding destination on 4th May, and I already know it takes the lady who made the top a week to get the fabric in from the supplier). If I had more time, I wouldn’t think twice about sending it back and asking her to make it in the specified colour, but I’m not sure there is now.
Could you kindly have a look at the pics below and give me your HONEST opinion – does the ‘pale’ dress underneath look way to pale for the top, OR could I get away with it? I only have a fabric cut off from the dress that the seamstress gave me for tying around the bouquet if I needed it, so I can’t show you with the dress on I’m afraid.
I’ve included another link below to show the kind of look I was going for…any advice would be hugely appreciated in my quite frantic state right now!
And sorry for so many pics, I had to take a few to show x
