    These are not the best photos as I had no clue when they were going to be taken because no one knows how to use my camera. That and no flash was used--enough of the excuses.
    I am fair skinned (read-pale) and have lots of freckles. Reddish hair as well. Now here is my question--My sisters are encouraging me to get a cream colored dress over white. What do you think? I really don't have a huge preference so I thought I would throw it out there for you to see. Plus I know you all love photos. Nothing like seeing yourself in a wedding dress to encourage you to tone up and loose more weight ( already 15 down )
    I am not sure if you can really make out the difference.

    This one is very simple and more my style than some of the ones with lots of beading. This one is very white.

    Ignore the silly face! This one is off-white or cream. It has a flower on that I hate so would take it off and cover it with a pin.

    Arrgh I am so tired so I hope this makes sense. Oh and stay tuned for engagement photos--we got them done last night and I should have them by the end of the week!!

      Nice work on the 15! That's so awesome.

      I think you look great in the white dress. Actually I prefer the white dress with your skin tone. Which do you think you like better?

        I also prefer the white. If you were pasty & 'clear' (as Reggie so endearingly says) like me, I'd say cream!

            I like the second one---- it draws the attention upward and also gives more definition in the waist.

            Great job on the 15!!!

              ROFL..."clear" is hilarious!! I would say with such pale skin, that cream would be nice.

                I think with the skin tone you described, as we can not really see it in the pics, I would go off white or ivory. I am a little on the pale side and blonde and blue eyed, so I knew I was going off white, white is strong and I do not think it suits me. That is me though, so that is how I voted.

                I like the second dress better on you.

                  GREAT JOB ON THE 15 LBS. What did you do? I want to need to (says my doctor) change my diet so can you give me some advice.

                  I agree with Heidi if you are fair fair skin go with the cream if you plan on tanning go with the the white.

                    I like the first one on you. My wedding dress was "natural" but depending on the light you couldn't tell if it was white or off white.

                      I say cream...BUT, I love the first dress on you. It is flattering and looks great!

                      So...first dress in cream!
