    I love the pink/blush undertone, it makes the lace details really pop! But if you are not 100% sold on the color as it is, then I would just error on the side of caution with ivory, since that will never be a mistake when you look back on your photos.

    I voted moscasto – I love the way it makes the lace pop, as mentioned. That is one gorgeous dress, and looks fantastic on you!

    I think it is more a matter of what do you prefer to be the focus of the dress.  With a different colored underlayer, the main attention will be to hyperfocus on the specific details of the lace pattern.  With a matching underlayer people will be be more inclined to be looking at the dress as a whole with the lace being more subtle textural interest than the main focus.

    Even though I prefer a different color underlayer about 75% of the time so details can pop, I personally am not in love with this arrangement of lace when it is the main focus and would choose ivory for this particular dress.  There’s basically a heart shape pointing right at your crotch and the arrangement of the lace is pulling the focus downward and is more obvious in Moscato than it would be in ivory.

    I’ll make this a separate post…

    Would you be having the straps and neckline like the ivory dress (sheer, v-neck, on the shoulder) or the moscato (lace edging, sweetheart, off the shoulder)?  I personally prefer how it appears on the ivory.  However, if you are going with how it appears on the sample you tried, then that would be another reason I would vote for ivory over moscato.  That lace edging is pretty heavy handed and the color contrast of that is just a bit too stark against the rest of the dress making it look not as cohesive, in my opinion.

    The V pattern placement is… awkward. I’d go with ivory, as the dress photographs as extremely pink in some lighting.

    angelnz :  It looks to me like Moscato is just their term for blush. Which is fine if you want a blush dress, it is certainly pretty. If you weren’t looking for blush though, I wouldn’t choose it just because that’s what color the store had for you to try on. My thinking is, you can wear a pink dress to any occasion. When is the next time you’re going to get to wear a white (or ivory) floor-length lace and tulle gown? I voted for ivory.

    annabananabee :  I also think the Moscato is a little too pink for a bridal gown. It is was a more blush shade it would work better. But yes, I agree… I normally like a colored underlay, but not as much in this one.

    Yeah…the V shape pointing to the crotch area, with basically flesh toned highlighting around it, so it’s like some kind of lace Brazilian  is awkward to me … I think ivory is lovely

    I haven’t tried on your particular dress but have tried on quite a few Stella York dresses. Moscato is definitely more light pink, I wouldn’t even call it blush. It does look beautiful and shows off the lace so much more! It just depends if you want to wear ivory on your wedding. For me personally I was only looking for ivory, and didnt consider anything else. But if a coloured dress is not a deal breaker for you I think it looks beautiful. Here’s a different stella York dress in moscato on me. Sorry about the close up boob shot, shows the colour better Haha.
