    both are lovely colours and are subtle so you wont feel non-bridal on your big day. saying that, i dont really like the first dress, the second dress (blush) looks absolutely fab on you…

    Personally I love the one you picked. There’s nothing “not bridal” about that dress, the color is magnificent! I may be biased though because my dress is even darker than yours (dark champagne and ivory), but I think the color just has such a beautiful, soft appearance to me. White white is much too strong, imo, even solid ivory can come across as too stark.


    i really think you made the right choice, that dress looks amazing on you, however at the end of the day you should wear what makes you most comfortable.

    Have you looked into their policy? If it was just off the rack, the dress is unworn and can just as easily be resold I don’t see why they would keep your entire desposit / force you to pay the rest.

    You don’t feel bridal because your dress is white. You feel bridal because it’s your wedding day.

    I choose the second dress, not because of the first one’s color (color is very pretty) but because I think it compliments your body better and looks great on you.

    Both are beautiful but I think the second one has the edge – makes your waist look teeny and I love the proportions

    I do like the second dress better, but both are beautiful dresses, so I doubt it would be worth it to lose the 50% deposit that you put down on the first dress pictured.

    I love the dress you picked!!  I think it’s stunning on you and I love the colour.  I don’t think it looks dirty at all.

    It’s not the color that I’m not liking on the first dress, it’s the style. That blunt line chops your body in half. The second dress has a nicer flow & is much more flattering. I would find out what the bridal shop will allow you to do and figure out what you truly want in your wedding gown.

    The lighting in the two stores are very different and will affect the way the colours look in the photos.  On your wedding day you will likely have brighter light (even natural light if you get photos done outside) which will REALLY brighten up your dress.  I bought ivory and thought for so long I should have gotten white.  In the bridal store it looked stained and I was really upset (the sample i originally tried on was white).  Once I got it home and saw it in natural light it looked completely different.  In my wedding photos you just see a beautiful bride in a “white” dress. I could hardly tell it wasn’t white on my wedding day.

    I say stick with your original choice 🙂

    Nothing to do with color, but I like the second one better overall.
