    can you take a photo of your dress and their dresses/sash together? even just the fabrics lying together not necessarily on someone.

    Is it possible just to purchase ivory sashes for the dresses?

    im doing the same thing, my dress is ivory, the girls dresses are yellow and white. so i started adding a white and ivory mix into everything. Fiance is wearing white shirt ivory vest, and I have 2 flower girls one in white one in ivory. For tableclothes im doing white cloth, ivory napkins, just little things like that. This way it makes everything blend in together well.

    I think it’s fine.  I doubt anyone will think your dress looks dirty in comparison.  Could you have their bouquets have some ivory colored flowers in them to mix in the shade?

    I had a friend in this situation and she had a seamstress custom make sashes, it was not very expensive.  I don’t think it’s a huge deal but if it’s something you’ll notice and it bugs you, you could probably take care of it for cheap ($20 a girl or less).

    I think they look fine together! Your dress is a pretty light ivory, so despite the color difference, the beading and stuff gives it enough of a ‘texture’ difference that the color isn’t noticable.

    I think you’re in the clear!

    I think it will look fine. I would not have known that your dress was ivory without by just looking at it.

    I think it will look fine!  I could barely tell the difference in the pictures.  You have nothing to worry about!

    I think you could purchase another sash or even dye the current one ivory but it really is fine as is. I had to look a second time to even notice the difference. Ivory is still white to me…and most other people will feel the same way!

    I think it looks fine together.  Your dress is a very light ivory, so there isn’t a huge difference between your dress and the white sash.  I don’t think it makes your dress look dirty.

    I think it’s fine. We need to remember that, as brides-to-be, we are WAY more sensitive about this stuff than most people. I doubt anyone else at your wedding would even notice or think about it.
