I tried on the MS “Carrie” dress and fell in love! However the color that I tried on was Oyster/Pewter and would not compliment my wedding colors. I have not been able to find a good picture of one in Champagne to be able to compare it to one in Ivory. I must decide between those two colors. Other dresses that I have looked at always show the champagne color on ladies with darker skin or ones that are very tan. I worry that the ivory color will wash me out. I would appriciate any suggestions or pictures…Please! I have to make a decision soon!

The Maggie Sottero Carrie is a gorgeous dress! Have you tried on any dresses in ivory? If so, how does the color look on you? I would base your decision off of dresses in ivory or champagne that you have already tried on to see how the colors look with your skin.
I am very pale and I’m wearing a champagne dress with an ivory lace netting over the top. I think it looks good with my skin color.
Good luck with your decision!

OMG you are my wedding twin AND my dress is Carrie, in champagne! It’s a beautiful pale gold colour. I tried it on in oyster also, and my Mum thought it washed me out. I took a gamble ordering it in champagne without having seen it on first, but it is beautiful and I am very happy.
It has been hanging up in my parents rooms since September 2010 and I am still in love with it! It was the first dress I tried on, I tried another 4 or 5 after it and just kept going back to Carrie each time. I don’t have much of a tan either. Unfortunately none of the photos I took on my phone show an accurate colour, the lighting in the shop was not good for photos.
