    I went dress shopping this weekend and found my dress! I didn't buy it though because they only had it in white and I want it in ivory. I am afraid that ivory will look different and will change the beading (the way it looks). I called all around and no one has the dress in ivory. It is also a new dress, so no one has even ordered it for me to come and look at. What should I do? Should I just order it and go for it? They (David's Bridal) said if I hate it then I could exchange it for something else in the store, but no refunds can me made.


    Here is a link to it: David's Bridal - Bridal Gowns D9538 Halter taffeta pick-up gown with draped bodice and beaded lace empire.

      I say go ahead and order it. You've got plenty of time until the wedding, and if you absolutely hate it, David's will give you store credit. Even if you don't buy your gown there, you can use it for bridesmaids dresses, accessories, etc.

      If you really like the style of the dress you could exchange the ivory for the white later on.

        Is it a DB design? Could you look at another davids bridal dress with simalar fabric and beading but in the ivory to compare? Usually, the colour issues are worse when you pair two fabrics, like lace and something else for example. If you love it, I say go for it and exchange it if you hate it, but I'm sure it will be fine.

          Great idea to look different ones online!! I didn't even think about that! I think it will be fine. I have friends and family telling me not to do it, but I want this dress!! Thanks ladies. I think I will just go ahead and order it then!!

            I love your dress... it is beautiful!

            It is funny to see your post today as the same thing happened to me just last week. I found the gown I wanted at David's Bridal. The one they had in stock was white, but I wanted ivory. My concern was that the white dress had silver and white beading, and I do NOT want gold and ivory beading... We looked at a few ivory dresses and the beading was not gold on any of them, it was ivory. So I took the chance... I ordered the gown! I am keeping my fingers crossed

            I am glad to hear that I can exchange for another dress if I don't like it...

              If the style looks great on you and you love it, then I think you should go for it and just be happy with whatever shade ivory it comes in and whatever kind of beads it has. I'm sure they'll use coordinating beads and it will be beautiful!

                Go for it girl! The dress is gorgeous. I would go ahead and order it, you can always exchange it. I am in a similar situation. I found the dress I love at David's Bridal and they only had it in Ivory. I wanted white, so they ordered it in white. I haven't seen it on me or anyone else in white and am hoping the beading is all exactly the same. (I don't see why it wouldn't be) Let us know!!

                  Thanks so much ladies! I am going to check out one more dress shop this weekend and then order it if I don't find anything else. This is my second dress shopping trip and this is the ONLY dress that I liked and felt comfortable in. I will let you know when I order it! I have pictures in it, but they are on one of my bridesmaids cameras. I will share and get your opinion when I get the pics.

                    Jodi - let me know when you get your dress in. I would love to hear how it looks! I am sure you will love it!
