    Its a very pretty dress. They are very obviously the same dress. The one you are wearing looks more white than ivory. The model photo probably just looks darker because the of the lighting in the photo.

    Yes, they are the same dress. What you’re noticing is likely due to the dramatic differences in lighting and photography.

    The bust looks different to me, almost with the dress from the website having an illusion “hidden panel” in the middle of the sweetheart. The embroidery on the website looks more prominent (3D) and less “beady” than your dress. They definitely look similar in shape and overall design, but to me, they do look noticeably different in color and detail. Hmm…confusing, as they are actually the same dress. Both are lovely. Good luck!

    I think the professional model shot has been done in such a way that the shininess of the beading is muted to fit with the ‘glowy’ tone of the picture. The same has produced a much darker ivory tone. However they are definitely the same dress with the same embellishments. I think bright shop lights vs soft candleight would produce the same differences if that makes sense.

    Looks exactly the same, except for the color.  Gorgeous!  I was a Casablanca bride too!

    Whoa.  When I look at the details I can tell it’s actually the same dress, but a quick glance at each and they give off a completely different look/vibe!!  Definitely see what you mean.
