My questions is who did you order through? They they should have been in charge of askign you if you wanted the color you were wearing or white? I would put some pressure on them to make it right.

 

I tried my dress on this past weekend as it just came in as well and had the same problem except my dress showed up in Ivory (I have yellow toned skin so this does not look good). When I complained I made them bring me the floor sample as I would NEVER order an ivory dress for me (especiallyw ith platinum crystals) on my skin. They brought in the floor model and the color was ivory but it had faded to white due to being in the sun....they should have told me this. I was furious as well. So, I understand your pain and have had to change a lot in the last 72 hours. The bottom line is...it is still a beautiful dress that I am sure it looks lovely on you. Give it a chance and see if they can fix it by dyign it for you. Good luck and I am sorry for your disappointment!

Kathie's Suggestion is TOPS!!! But.. I agree... that you need to love your dress... I would talk to the Bridal Salon and see if they can locate one in another shop... in your chosen colour of Ivory.

How do you feel about the dress now... Sorry to hear it's the wrong color, but I really hope it works out for you in the white dress!!

Goodluck and post some pics if you have them.

Awwww..I so feel your pain. Only another bride could understand..I'm sure someone has told you that it doesn't make a difference or that the colors are so similar it won't matter, but ofcourse it matters to you!

 

What about calling around some other shops? Maybe they have a sample in your size that you could buy. If your bridal shop is a chain, they may have one in another city...at the very least, you should be able to contact other retail outlets that carry the line and see if they have any samples available for purchase.

 

I wish you luck...try to stay calm. It IS a beautiful dress, no matter what the color. I hope you find a solution that will work for you!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
