I haven’t worn it personally, but whenever I see ivory over blush I love it. It makes the lace stand out SO nicely! I find ivory lace over ivory makes it harder to see the beautiful detailing of the lace.

I enjoyed having something a bit different and I loved seeing the pink in the sunlight of our outdoor ceremony

I wore ivory over blush and it was awesome, I got many compliments and it was more pink outside during our pictures than indoors.  Indoors it looked more ivory

Can you post a couple pics for reference?? I’m in support of ivory over blush for the detail factor for sure, but want to see to make a decision

I would go wiht the blush but I might be biased, my dress is ivory/champagne because I wanted the lace to really stand out. Ivory/ivory with lace doesn’t photograph well in my opinion.

I think, it is good combibation, don’t worry, I think it won’t be too pink.

I wore marrianne in blush color and LOVED it!! White and ivory made me look really washed out, but blush was perfect 🙂 in certain lights you couldn’t tell it was blush, especially since the color was stronger in the skirt. I loved it and wouldn’t change it for anything.

I’m wearing MS Rosamund in Ivory over Pale Blush and I love it. It really makes the applique lace pop, the Ivory/Ivory is nice, but i don’t think it shows teh detailign as much. It’s much more flattering on my skin tone too.

I just went to a wedding where the bride wore ivory over light blush. The lace and detailing really “popped.” I’ve seen a number of ivory on ivory gowns and the detail just fades into the background.

alz624:  I tried on the Maggie Sottero Haven in blush for my family (wish I took a picture in it) but at the bridal boutique, it looked way too pink and I couldn’t get past the color. Had I wanted that dress, I would have probably gotten it in ivory.

I think blush dresses are becoming the in-thing right now, which is fine, but you have to think about the overall look and envision what you really want. For me, I knew I wanted a white dress because of how it would pop against my golden brown skin, and I didn’t budge on that. Best of luck!

alz624:  Have you been back yet? It is a stunning dress and i think the pale blush is pretty subtle compared to some of the blush dresses that are available. I’d share my pics but i wasn’t allowed to take any   Here’s some pics of other bees in the dress
