I really LOVE the first dress on you. I think you look gorgeous. And congrats on the 15 lbs. That is quite an achievement. I don't know quite what to tell you about the color thing, I couldn't really tell from the pics...but it does seems like most dresses can be ordered in "white" or "diamond white"/ "ivory". Once you have chosen your style, then see if you can try it on in both color options. I don't think it depends so much on how pale or tan you are...but what the undertones of your skin are. Some "pale" people look very nice in white..and actually look darker because of the contrast. I wouldn't think ivory would be the best for all of the paler types because you might sorta blend in with the dress. I don't know if that makes sense. I am naturally pretty dark with olive undertones... and get very dark in the sun.. and ivory looked much better on me than white. So since white doesn't look good on all darker people, I wouldn't think that cream would look good on all paler people. Bottom line...ask someone who can provide an honest, unbiased opinion (like a sale person) when no one else is around to stick their two cents in. Good luck!

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 am doing Weight Watchers with my two sisters. It works so much better if you have a buddy ( or 2). Can you get a buddy?cheer2.gif

Ok so here is a picture that I think will show the color much better. I can get either dress in cream or white. I am 6 feet tall so I will have to have length added to the strapless one.

Right now we are unsure where we are getting married due to the fire in Tahoe ( I am pretty sure the house we were renting is now gone). We may end up doing a beach wedding after all.

It will need to be taken in by "the girls" in order for it to fit better.

Oh and remember the flower is going to be replaced...and the dress will be steamedsmile36.gif

Although it's hard to tell from the pics, I would vote cream just because I think people in general tend to look better in cream or ivory over stark white. It's just more flattering, in my opinion. Softer, I guess.

 

Also, and this is just my opinion, that stark white looks cheaper and creamy ivory looks more expensive.

 

Pretty dress!

Pretty dress!
Funny you should say that because I was liking the creamier colors at the store. They did look more expensive. Ha I can trick people into thinking I spent money!smile120.gif
