I think you need to decide if YOU feel beautiful in it and how you like it. I think those types of dresses are gorgeous! I recently seen another post with someone of a very similiar dress and I think its gorgeous. Sometimes white doesn’t go well with your skin colour, and it’s not like youre going too far off from white.

Then again, this is coming from someone that is going in the complete opposite direction and doing a black wedding dress! Do what makes you happy and feels the most “you”.

If you’re concerned about tradition, I would say that champagne is so close to white that you’re basically still in the traditional wedding dress color range.  It’s been becoming more popular and also looks fantastic on certain skin tones (whereas pure white and even ivory, for example, did me no favors!). I had a pale champagne dress with ivory lace applique overlay, and it was perfect.

Get what you love and you won’t regret it <3

I wore a champagne dress with ivory overlay and you can barely tell it is not white or ivory.

I also wore chanpagne with an ivory lace overlay.  It was beautiful, i FELT beautiful and you still have the feel of a white dress. I found white a little too blinding for me, and i felt the chanpagne/ivory was a good compromise for me.  But what you feel amazing in is really what counts.

I consider champagne, ivory and white to all be in the same category – they are all traditional wedding dress colors. And nowadays I think it’s rare to see a stark white dress; even the dresses that look more or less white are not pure white.

I think it all depends on what you are comfortable in! I tried on a few champagne dresses which I thought were beautiful before I settled on a blush colored dress. I just wasn’t comfortable in the white dresses I tried on. I think champagne is gorgeous and looks close enough to white that most people won’t even notice it isn’t white.

Does it flatter you, and do you like the dress otherwise? Then go for it! As a couple of other bees have said, champagne may not quite be white, but it’s still close enough to be considered traditional. As long as the fact that it’s not bright white isn’t a deal breaker, you should be good.
