Just wanted to share a quick photo! When the lady unzipped the dress bag, my heart stopped “is that white?” I asked. Of course not, I know a true white when I see one. I’ve been dreaming about my white wedding gown since I was a little girl. Dumb ass bride brain, I know I wanted a white dress, but I signed an order form that said ivory Without double checking. My bridesmaids looked at me in horror. My bridezilla moment had surely come!
I suprised myself by focusing on the positives, hopefully something I can do consistently! I always aspired to be a “go with the flow” bride, but you gotta walk the walk, so now I’m learning to love ivory, because there’s nothing I can do! The dress took 9 months to come in, and it was my own darn fault anyway!
Here’s to some new-found ivory love, and a whole new accessory shopping stint, because my veil, crinoline, and shoes are all white!

It looks perfect to my eye and photographers will always tell you that white is hard to photograph well, Ivory is less harsh. You look like a true Princess in your dress.

observer: Thank you! Silver linings ALL OVER THE PLACE! At the end of the day, it seems that the universe has a plan for me, and I’m just going to have to enjoy the crazy ride!

FWIW, I think the ivory is a more flattering choice for your complexion. You look great! Things happen for a reason.

You look incredible! Maybe you can sell the white accessories to help fund the new ones? I bought a second veil after realizing I only purchased the original one because I was caught up in that bridal moment, so I plan to take it to a local bridal consignment shop.

sabriel17: Thank you! 🙂 Thankfully, because I overspent on the dress I had only ordered fairly cheap eBay accessories, so I’m not out too much cash… Just a bit pressed for time now to order something new! Maybe I’ll check out the consignment shops to see if anything will work, I’m not fancy, I don’t need brand new!

I got ivory too but none of my bm or my mom noticed they thought it was white until I asked the girl about my light ivory veil… And I am very pail so the ivory looks much better against my skin
I think you look stunning and I applaud your go with the flow attitude, it makes things so much easier!

Thanks guys, y’all are very sweet! It makes me feel so nice to have some positive feedback. When my Mother-In-Law saw it I think her exact words were “will he even be able to get close to you?” Eesh! Princess dress deserves a queen’s attitude… “Let it go!”

WOW WOW WOW! You look stunning! Your dress is so so beautiful! In my opinion, Ivory looks much richer than pure white. Very elegant. The ivory on your skin tone looks so perfect! What a lucky mistake! LOL!
