I am absolutely in love with the jenny packham Willow dress and have only realized recently that it comes in ivory or champagne. In the ideal world i would try on both samples and take pictures of me in it and see how it looks on me, but the only store that carries it in western Canada sold their sample dress and now I’m left with just pictures on the Internet. I am also purchasing it as a second hand dress and most brides are selling their champagne color Willow dress, but my heart tells me that the Ivory one is a safer bet. I think the champagne would be unique and outstanding, but the Ivory is more subtle and more bridal.
Please vote which one you think is nicer! Thanks!!!

Both gorgeous! But depends on your skin tone? I’m extremely pale (Irish) and I found champagne was a bit less stark but if you were more sallow the Ivory might suit. But I don’t think you can go wrong really!

My dream dress! I love the champagne but I agree, it really depends on your skin tone.

I personally think the ivory just looks better.

Skin tone plays a huge part! But good choice on designer her dresses are gorgeous i tried on a couple and the detailing is stunning! I will say though this style, lots of beading slight 20’s feel is very in at the moment so its worth goig to some shops you may find something similar to try to check you like the style and colour although champagne varies a lot!

I tried on this dress in Champagne and it’s beautiful, but it’s really quite dark. Much darker than in the photo you posted, so much so that I would never have called it “champagne”.

Thanks everyone! I’m chinese and have medium skin tone? Haha probably not helpful.. But I am drawn to rose gold as opposed to white gold/silver accessories… I don’t think im worried that it doesn’t look good on me but more like it’s too “out there” for a garden/beach outdoor wedding.
oooo can you tell me more about what it looks like in person? Did it still look like a bridal gown? Or more like a reception second dance gown?

maybe try finding a similar dress in the two colors and trying them on? just to get a feel for the color on your skin

Oh man both are nice, normally I don’t like “champagne”. Def agree with maybe trying on some different dresses in similar shades to get a feel for what looks best with your skin tone 🙂

I’m Chinese too, and I would also say I have medium skin tone. I felt the champagne was too close to being the same colour as my skin and there wasn’t an ivory version to try on. I tried on other Jenny Packham dresses in ivory and thought that colour worked MUCH better.
I don’t think the dress style is too “out there”, and would be lovely for a garden wedding, but probably not the beach as it has a lot of beading and a 20s Gatsby kind of feel. I LOVED this dress and Jenny Packham gowns in general and really wanted to make it work as my own wedding dress, but it was out of my budget and I just didn’t have the right figure for it as it doesn’t have much structure so every bulge shows. If you’re slim, I think it would be gorgeous and if you’re worried about it not being bridal enough, go for the ivory as the champagne really can come off as an evening gown. I did consider it as a reception gown but the price tagged killed my Jenny Packham dreams.

Another fellow Asian-Canadian in Montreal here! Do go for ivory! I’ve tried on Jenny Packham and the ivory shade is bridal perfection.
