It’s gorgeous and looks ivory to me. TOTALLY normal to have second thoughts about your dress after not seeing it for awhile. Go look at the “before and after” dress threads and that should help put your mind at ease.

one, it looks gorgeous NOW.

But steaming makes a WORLD of a difference. remember that you tried on a floor model that was steamed and pressed to look extra perfect on you.

It’s ivory. Look at the fabric behind you compared to the stark white door. It probably just looks white in that light because the lighting is  fluorescent, which tends to give things a bluer tint. That might be hiding the warmth you wanted to see in the fabric.

That aside, I think it looks great on you. It will look even better after alterations, but it’s already plenty flattering. But if you hate it, sell it. I am sure there is a bride out there who would love to get her dream dress at a discount from you rather than paying a premium for it at the bridal shop.

I agree with @mchitt329:  some have a bit of dress regret at first, it’s normal. Your dress is gorgeous. Don’t change it.

I’m curious to why they don’t steam the dress now. Has anyone else had that issue?

That dress looks amazing on you, the beading on top looks gorgeous and I bet this picture doesnt do it hardly any justice, you know yourself best but as someone who is just starting the dress shopping process I hope to find a dress that fits me as well before alterations. That dress is beautiful though what an amazing train.

It looks great on you… very flattering ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s definitely ivory too, though maybe lighter than you were expecting. Maybe this dress was from a different dye lot than the floor model?

That dress is very flattering on you! I think the color looks fine, but maybe you’re remembering a dirty sample dress that was a darker color because it was grungy.

@Asilver89:  you’re doing what we all do, haha. we buy a gorgeous dress, and then we second guess it.

chill out, stop looking at dresses. you really and truly look phenomenal. you can tell it’s ivory, but fluorescent lighting does make it look more white. it looks great now.

it’s perfect. just stay off of google and the dress boards on here for a while. it leads to second guessing ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Looks beautiful! I love Maggie Soterro dresses (I bought Jessie). I sometimes panic and think that there might be a better dress… but then I remember how I feel in the dress, how my moms face looked…. it’s the one!

I think your dress is beautiful, BUT I have been in your shoes, and I know it sucks more than anything to feel like you don’t like your dress. I straight up hated mine, and then luck struck and I had the opportunity to change it.

IF you are able to sell it (you’d probably take a loss) and you’re okay with doing that, I say go for it and find something you love. BUT I think you will look awesome in anything ๐Ÿ™‚ it’s a bride thing!
