    ??? There are blush/champagne/etc dresses all over these boards. It’s obviously not a deal breaker for a lot of people. A lot of people specifically seek out those colors. And your dress is gorgeous!

    SO has dreams of a white wedding. So for us, if it isn’t white. It’s a dealbreaker.

    I didn’t wear white. Mine was cameo with ivory lace. I don’t know many people that do stark white any more. Blush & blue have become very trendy. It’s beautiful on you! I say go for it!!!

    I was AGAINST white/ivory. I definitely wanted blush. My first dress was actually more mauve. I lost a significant amount of weight and the dress (and no longer looks as nice on, even clamped at the seamstress, so I’m purchasing a new one) and my new dress is either going to be petal, champagne, or a beige pink. I just can’t decide.


    that said your color is so subtle and is BEAUTIFUL

    This dress is perfection. It also appears to be white/ivory with a blush underlay, no? Either way, GET IT!

    I’m going champagne (which sometimes photographs pink lol) with an ivory overlay, parents are ok with it but there was intial “seriously really?” from them based on their ideas of what a wedding dress should be.

    I’m fine with it I think because coloured dresses pop up a lot on my feeds so it fits in my “what can be a wedding dress” image. For that price I reckon go for it unless you’ve had the “white dress” in your head since forever, and just make sure there’s nothing cosmetically wrong with the dress 🙂

    It’s a lovely dress 🙂 It looks absolutely bridal and if it makes you feel beautiful I say go for it. It’s a blessing 🙂

    I opted for a true vintage, white satin gown because it fit my style a and love for 1940’s-50’s clothing but absolutely would have considered a non-white or ivory gown. After all, in many cultures white is not the standard wedding colour.

    I think blush looks amazing – very dramatic with an amazing white or Ivory veil, I think you found a bargain.

    Honestly most of the time it’s really hard to tell the difference between a white dress and an ivory dress unless you’re holding the two right next to each other. IMO a lot of white dresses can look too harsh on girls, especially depending on their skin tone and hair color. I certainly wouldn’t let that be a deal breaker for you!
