mine’s all ivory, but your colors sound SO pretty. I bet the “pearl rose” really shows off the delicate lace! I was worried the ivory on ivory would make the lace disappear, but it was enough contrast that the lace still stood out. I can’t wait to see what those two colors look like together!

Thanks, littlebug.  Yeah my mom really wanted me to get ivory over ivory.  I had to get the pearl rose though.  I’ll post pics when my dress comes in.  πŸ™‚

YAY!  I got the all ivory Karena Royale last month!  πŸ™‚  I was going back and forth with the “pearl rose” one, but went ahead with the all ivory.

I’m going to have chocolate brown bridesmaid dresses and black tuxes.  I think the ivory dress will go okay (I HOPE!!).  Undecided

Looking forward to everyone’s photos, too!!!  πŸ™‚

The ivory will look awesome with brown! I wanted brown Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, too, but my Fiance doesn’t like brown, so that went out the window. I’ve seen pictures of brown dresses and black tuxes, and it looks GREAT. πŸ™‚

This is my dress too! I went with the ivory/gold – I’m a redhead with fair skin so the color is perfect. I am very much struggling with the veil though. I tried on a couple of lace veils and they are just too much. I’m pretty small, only 5’2″  and am wearing my hair mostly down with one side pinned up with a rose. What type of veil are you going with???? Thanks!!

I just picked up my dress this weekend!  I’m changing the gold ribbon to ivory, and ordering an ivory lace for the corset.  The gold is a little too dark for me.  But I love the dress, and I can’t wait to wear it!

I’m considering buying the ivory/light gold from another bee but am concerned that it will look too yellow.  I’ve only tried it on in the all ivory!  But it’s such a great deal that I’m SO tempted.

What are the opinions of the ivory/light gold??

I don’t think the ivory/light gold is too yellow, said that, I’ve only seen it in pictures.  I bought it all ivory, but only because I didn’t want the gold sash, and didn’t want to bother changing the sash, but if there was an option of the ivory/light gold with ivory sash, I would have gone for that!  I love the contrast of it against the lace!

@jgibso27 – I don’t think its too yellow at all!  Of course I’m biased because that’s the color I ordered πŸ™‚  The light gold just gives the dress a little more warmth.  What I don’t care for is the dark gold ribbon at the waist, which I’m changing to ivory.  The corset lace comes in the light gold color, which I’m also switching out for ivory. 

@CCSR – I can PM you with pics after my first fitting this weekend.  And wedding in Rio?  How exciting!

@JenniB — yes, please send pictures!  Yay! 

And yep, wedding in Rio — my whole family is from there, so it only seemed fitting πŸ™‚  I’m super excited about getting all my friends from DC down there!

Hi,

I’ve fallen completely in love with Karena Royale in ivory over light gold – but like someone else on here I’m worried about what bridesmaid colours will go with it. We’re having a summer wedding and my original plan was to have lots of bright colours (maybe bridesmaids in a pattern or each in a different colour), but I’m not sure I’ll be able to do that if i wear gold and lace. I really don’t want to put them in brown or black – does anybody have any suggestions or pictures of bridesmaids with a bride in this dress/colour?

Thanks!
