Hi Fanal Brides!
I ordered the Fanal dress in Off White but am now reconsidering the Oyster. The 2012 manufacturer’s picture on the La Sposa website shows the Fanal in Oyster, and it’s beautiful! But other pictures I have googled show it as more of a gold. The bridal salon I ordered it through doesn’t have a swatch or another dress in the oyster color so I have to go off of pictures mostly. I think the Oyster currently on their website is gorgeous and so rich looking. I’m hoping this is close to the true color. I know it’s a darker color but I want to make sure it’s more champagne with almost blush tones rather than gold. I have an olive complexion with dark hair and eyes…any thoughts? any Fanal oyster pics?

Do you have any pictures of these?

Honestly, that color difference could be something as silly as the lighting, the photoshopping, or the lens of the camera.
Can you request a swatch of the oyster fabric from the company?

You’re right, it could just be the lighting, it’s hard to tell. I think it’s very expensive to request a swatch, I finally found another store not too far from where I live and am crossing my fingers that they have the oyster in store! Thanks, we’ll see how it goes!

This is my dress and I’ve tried it on in both Oyster and Ivory. The “less gold oyster” pic posted is Ivory. The Oyster colour is gorgeous, and really I’ve seen them side by side and there isn’t a huge difference, even the Ivory is fairly champagne-y. I decided to go with the Ivory just because it still has that gold/pearl-ish tinge but it’s a little more traditional and I think will go better with decor and flowers and all that. I think Ivory is a safe bet (at least I hope so haha)!

I have this dress in oyster. Here are some pictures in various lights:
In my friends apartment during the day, with indoor lights off and light coming in through the window (appears champagne/pale gold?)
Outside on a bright sunny day (blush pink?)
Indoors (silvery pinkish)
Indoors with sunlight coming in through the window (appears pink)
I would say that 90% of the time this dress looks very pale pink. In photographs with flash it looks white, and occasionally it looks silvery pink. Future Mother-In-Law thinks picking colors that “go” with it will be difficult (she likes certain shades of pink, purple, blue and green) but I think it is a subtle enough color that it goes with everything. I hope this helps.
