Hi Bees, my reception dress arrived today and I’m in two minds about what to do with it. There are these pale pink accents sewn onto the underlay of the gown, on the layer beneath the lace. They look like they could be relatively easy to remove (as in, unstitch, as they appear just to be ribbons and layers of organza). The most complicated part would be removing them from the bodice, which would involve unstitching the top of the bust and then sewing the lace back on.
Originally I thought the blush would be pretty, but now I just find it distracting and a bit saccharine. I think it’s also because it’s not the entire gown that’s blush, just a few pink accents underneath which gives it a not-quite-right kind of hue. Opinions?
This is the blush:
This is what ivory looks like:

Yeah I think the ivory looks nicer personally, and since you prefer ivory I would go for that. If you liked the pink but weren’t sure I would say keep it, it is ok for it to be outside of the box, firstly because it is your wedding you can get what you want, but also because it is the reception dress, not the ceremony dress. Sorry I am not much help!

Thanks! Yeah, I was thinking a lot of people might just keep it because blush is so on-trend at the moment (as far as bridal trends go, haha) but I think it’s the fact that it’s just random flashes of pink every now and then. If the entire lining was blush, I think it would be better.
I’m also planning to tack in the lacy frilly bits that stick out at the bustline, to make it a clean line like the second dress.

I think it will work well once you make the adjustments 🙂

Gorgeous! I like everything you want to change. Lol. Either way the dress will be amazing.

I actually love the accents of blush – I think they give that extra something to the dress and make it stand out in a wedding world of whites and ivories!

I love the blush accents! It makes it look soft and feminine. I think it might be the photos that you posted but the ivory one looks harsh to me.

I like the blush, but I love the ivory. If you want to take it out, I say go for it! Only you will be able to decide which fits you and your wedding more

I like the blush. Especially because it’s a reception dress. You can have more fun with it!

I voted to remove the ivory because I think it looks more classic, but the blush accents are beautiful!

Keep the blush, I love how it makes the lace stand out, it’s a gorgeous, detailed dress and the ivory on ivory lets the lace blend into the background. Besides, thinking about your ceremony site (when is it btw?) the pop of color would look utterly gorgeous in photographs. The blush really isn’t that noticeable in photos so you knoW.

I would remove the blush. For me it’s too random and sublte to be noticed, but almost like what’s that stain under the lace kindda reaction to it. The dress is beutiful though
