    I love the Moscato. It really shows the details of the lace. It’s a beautiful dress.

    You are obviously more inclined to the moscato ,and though pps pointed out the crotch situation, I believe in reality no one will focus on that. The moscato suits your skin tone, and I think you will be happier in it.

    At the end of the day, it’s really about YOU!

    Looking at the pictures, initially I was all for the Moscato, but I have to say, now that someone mentioned the V crotch thing, I can’t stop seeing it… I think based on that I want to change my vote to ivory

    If you really want the lace details to pop then I think that the moscato is the way to go. If that’s your gut feeling, go for it! I also wore a Stella York dress, mine was white on white, not Ivory (but I did try on Ivory, I just liked white better). But I am attaching the image to see if you like it. The lace does not pop as much (which is what I wanted) but it does still show off. I personally LOVED my dress, and I really don’t think you can go wrong! It looks beautiful on you!

    My dress is Eddy K’s Sydney, which also features allover lace appliques. I decided to go with the Ivory instead of the Champagne (pinkish) underlay.

    As annabananabee described, I personally wanted the lace on the body of the dress to serve more as textural interest, with the actual shapes to be most visible around the neckline, back, and train. I also did worry about the Champagne color looking dingy or too pink with my skintone. 


    Although I like the visibility of the lace with the Ivory, there’s a noticeable difference compared to the pinkish underlay.

    So if you want the lace pattern to be readable all over the dress, then the Moscato would be the best way to achieve that. And the Moscato does look nice with your skin in the photos you’ve posted, though I do see what I would call that dull cast in the skirt in a few of the photos. But if you were happy with the color in person, I would argue to just enjoy how it looks on your wedding day and not worry if it may look off in a few photos. If you had concerns about the color in person, then that may be a reason to consider the Ivory. At the very least the Ivory will have that classic bridal beauty to it.

    And FWIW, I didn’t notice the V-shape to the lace on your dress at first, and seeing it now I still don’t think it’s a problem. Weddingbee threads are often quick to hone in on any abdomen/crotch shapes, but I usually don’t think they’re a big deal.
