    Blush is a popular bridal color and I think the dress looks gorgeous on you.  For me, my dress had to be white or ivory.  The color looked best with my complexion and I liked the traditional look.

    Uh, no lol I wanted anything but white/ivory. I ended up with it bc my dress only comes in 3 colors and FI had a no black preference. Your dress is lovely and so light it might look ivory in photos anyway. If this truly bugs you then change it but I don’t think its worth the extra cost.

    I think blush has become a huuuuuge trend recently so I think your experience may be an unusual one – maybe based on your region. When I was dress shopping (in the U.S.), another woman trying on dresses a room over was in tears because it was the 3rd salon she’d been too and she’d tried on so many pink dresses but couldn’t find one she loved.

    My dress is not white-white and I prefer it that way, the whole white dress tradition has a lot of sexism and nonsense involved in it anyway.

    That dress is beautiful and the blush color is gorgeous! Remember that in pro pics, especially outdoors, the blush won’t be as apparent. It may even lean towards white. For my personal experience, I initially only tried on white and ivory dresses because that was the norm but the first two non white/non ivory dresses I tried on became my top two! One was blush and the one I chose is rose gold lining underneath with diamond white lace on top. I love it and can’t wait to wear it!

    I was quite happy to have a non-white/ivory dress (at one point I even told people I was open to a black wedding dress) but that was a dealbreaker for DH lol – he really wanted me to have a more traditionally coloured dress. I tried on a stark white dress and it did not look good with my complexion lol. In the end, my dress was pale gold with an ivory lace overlay – it photographed very white in my opinion.

    honestly I think it’s in general a more flaterring colour than pure white! It looks beautiful, I would go for the blush!

    I think blush would be great! Yes, I prefer white/off-white, but I think blush is totally bridal and if its a lot cheaper then you should DEF go that route!!! The dress looks perfect!!!
