Any fellow Martina Liana brides out there? I bought 412 yesterday but now I’m having second thoughts about the color. The sample I tried was in blush silk, and I ordered the dress in ivory silk. I liked the blush but wasn’t sure how the color would appear during our outdoor ceremony — there wasn’t much natural light in the bridal shop.
The store had swatches of the different colors, but I thought they all appeared pretty similar, except for a blue/gray shade that I forget the name of (could be just “blue”). Even the blush was very subtle compared to the shade of blush I’ve seen used by other designers.
Does anyone have pics in a silk ivory, candelight, or blush Martina Liana dress? If so, I’d love to see them! Also please let me know if you have any advice…

Here’s the sample in blush:
I wonder if their ivory is lighter than other designers’ ivory and that’s why the candlelight shade exists? Anyone know?

I tried on a ML dress that was candlelight and it was a couple shades darker than normal ivory. It also had a little yellow/gold hue. Sorry, no pics though.

@spelunx: OMG your dress is BEAUTIFUL! I never saw that one in stores. How I chose between the two shades was I wore the candelight color i loved for a while, and then the store let me try on a similar martina liana in the blush color. As soon as I tried the lighter back on, I saw it washed out my skin tone a bit. Honestly, both shades were so beautiful; her gowns are so well made and she uses exquisite fabric. You look gorgeous in your gown. I only have pictures of myself in the ivory toned dress, so I’ll post that here per request (and because I’m excited about my dress!) Excellent dress choice, it’s sooo lovely.
