SO 2 days ago I boughy my dress. i put it on and fell absolutely in love with it, i know its the dress i want to wear- no doubt about it. HOWEVER when i went to pay for it and get my measurements taken she aked me if i was ordering it in the color i tried on...... because the color i tried on was champage/ivory. The champagne is very subtle and underneath the ivory & the rest of the dress is IVORY.
I was DEAD SET on getting a bright white wedding dress.... myself and my friends all though the dress was white until she told us it wasnt!! anyway they convinced me that i loved it as is and to not change the color but its 2 days later and its all i could think about!!! The consultant told me that the designer I ordered uses a very bright white and it cheapens the look of the dress. she said the one i tried on was the richest looking & i would be dissapointed with the all white, but i can still change my mind!!
The dress comes in either champage/ivory/silver, /ivory/ivory/silver or white/white/silver. not only did i NOT get the white but i got the CHAMPAGE ( just saying the word scares me ) i am totally freaking out.
am i going to look dirty next to my white tablecloths ??? AHHH GRRR someone help me what would you do !?!? my friends and family thought i looked beautiful and think im insane and dont want to hear about it anymore. =**(
I think that you should go with the color that your tried on and fell in love with, your first instinct is most of the time the best to go with. Also, you don't know what the "true" white will look like against your skin tone and you could absolutely hate it and than you are stuck with a dress color that doesn't flatter you. I would say that I see less and less brides getting true white dress, they are more off white, ivory and champagne has also become very popular. I would say the color you tried on sounds extremely beautiful and will look nice a rich and won't look off from the white tablecloths.
Hope this helps a little and you have a right to stress as it's a huge decision to make for that perfect dress. Honestly, go with what you fell in love with and you know that looks amazing on you.
