Crap - my wedding dress is the wrong color!!!

Recommended Posts

My wedding dress came in last week and I went to try it on on Saturday. When I put it on and stepped out in front of the mirrors I knew something was wrong because I wasn't teeming with excitement, but I couldn't figure out the problem until my sister said..."i didn't realize you ordered it in white". I'm all "huh? what are you talking abouthuh.gif". Turns out when I tried it on it was ivory, but i didn't realize it and ordered the WRONG COLOR! damn it damn it damn it!!!

 

I LOVE this dress, but I really wish it was ivory sad.gif Normally, I'd re-order, but it won't come in until the week before my wedding and it will need some alterations and I don't think I could deal with the stress of not having my wedding dress until RIGHT before we leave for Mexico. So, my options are:

 

- keep it in white and just get used to it

- buy the sample from the store that is 6 sizes too big and have it cleaned and altered

 

I cried a lot yesterday because I was so disappointed that I didn't LOVE my dress, but today I'm starting to feel like I shouldn't sweat the small stuff...except that I feel like my wedding dress isn't SMALL STUFF!!! The lace just looks so much more natural in ivory than bright white, KWIM?

 

What would you dohuh.gif

 

Oh - sorry I don't have any pics of me in the dress, but here it is on the model in ivory...not the shockingly bright white that I have sad.gif

Oh that sucks. I'm so sorry. I think I would try ordering the ivory one as long as the bridal shop will hold onto the other one for you just in case.

Oh, that is such a pretty dress. I hear you on not wanting to wait until right before the wedding for the right color to arrive.

 

Honestly, I think you will look wonderful in the white dress, but it is all about how you feel. If the dress shop says they can do the alterations on the right color and it won't come out looking too much different than the dress in the right size, I say go for that.

Oh I'm sorry you dont love your dress. It's a gorgeous dress. I would wait a couple of days and go back and try it on. Maybe after the initial shock of it being the wrong color, you'll like it more.

Can they put a rush on it so that if you reorder in ivory it will come in a little sooner? You definitely want to be truly happy about your dress when you put it on on your wedding day. I also agree that maybe going back to try it on again might work. You may like it more the 2nd time around.

Ugh, if its not one things its another, doesn't it feel like that sometimes! But your right, can't sweat the small stuff! You'll be gorgeous in that white dress either way... :) But i can def understand the frustration!!!

unfortunately this designer doesn't do rush orders...

 

i'm going to go back this weekend and try it on again and hope that i'm happier this time around. the bonus of having it in white is that i already have shoes and a veil to match courtesy of my sister and FSIL :)

 

i guess i'm just wondering if others have grown to love their dress after initially not being thrilled with it...?

I suggest doing a hair rehearsal and then go to the shop and try it on with your hair up and your jewelry and makeup, you know get the whole look. I think you'll love it.
