Does he even know what champagne looks like? Most guys wouldn’t be able to notice a difference. I think that no matter what you will look beautiful to him on your wedding day. My Fiance always tells me it’s about the girl in the dress and not the dress itself. 

I know every company’s version of champagne is a little different too. Do what makes you feel most comfortable. If his thought really bothers you would you be able to buy the same dress in another white or off-white color?

@FloretteLiz: I agree.  My Darling Husband would not have had any idea what I meant if I told him my dress was dark ivory, and he probably would have had the same reaction… but on the actual day he couldn’t stop telling me how beautiful I looked.  Don’t worry about it… I don’t think he will even notice once you’re in it! 🙂

If there’s one thing I’ve realized during wedding planning, it’s that when I say something related to the wedding, there’s about a 95% chance that what Fiance imagines is way off the mark. He doesn’t think your dress is “eew”, he thinks that whatever image his fevered brain conjured up when you said “champagne” is “eew”. I really don’t like pulling the “guys don’t know what they’re talking about” card, but sometimes it’s true. You have a dress you love, he will love it on you.

…and you can always post a picture of it and I am sure your fellow bees will reassure you! Smile

Don’t fret! When I told my now husband that my dress was “light gold” (because I really doubted he knew what champagne looked like), he freaked out! I doubted my choice for a while, but when he saw me that day he couldn’t stop saying how amazing I looked and how he had been picturing something so completely different.

I hope your Fiance is the same way, because in the end the dress is what makes you feel beautiful!

Don’t get caught up in the “luck” part!  You love the dress.  He will love you in it.  He’s looking at another woman in the dress…of course he won’t have an emotional reaction!  You are going to look even more beautiful knowing that you picked it and are comfortable in it.  Wait on it…don’t make a rash decision and then end up regretting it!
