    New bride to the thread! Wedding is Feb 3, 2012 at the Jellyfish, staying at Majestic Elegance. We booked Julia Eskin for our photographer.

    I am having a dilemma with my dress! I tried it on in ivory and I bought it in white at my mother's request....now I don't really care for the white! I want to order it in ivory but of course that is going to cost more and then I have to worry about selling the white. What color is everyone else wearing?! I am trying to figure out what will look best in the sun... I tan pretty easily and will be in DR four days before the wedding. My fiance is Irish and has really fair skin!

      Congrats and welcome to the thread!!!!! We are getting married on the 4th and staying at the colonial! We were going to book Julia but she unfortunately was already booked so on her suggestion booked Katya Nova who we are really excited about using!  

       

      I never paid attention to the colours I was trying on until it came time to order the dress.  Luckily the shop I bought from had a similar dress to mine in white.  I tried on both and HATED the white!!! I couldnt believe it as I LOVE white t-shirts etc and expected to buy a white dress but I just liked the ivory so much more.  I was really tan when I tried on too (it was in the summer) and like you I tan easily.  That being said, this is NOT the case for everyone and each individual person has their own preferences! There is actually a whole thread dedicated to this and some more tanned people much preferred the white while others said no they preferred ivory.  Likewise very "pale" people said they found ivory was better for their skin tone while others with the same type of skin chose to go with white.  I think the colour is TOTALLY dependant on personal preference and no one elses opinion in going to help you decide.  You need to figure out what you are most comfortable in!

       

      Do you really HATE the white or is it just starker than you remembered?  My best friend got married in July and after the fact I asked, was your dress ivory?  In fact her dress was diamond white but I didn't even notice ( I was MOH lol) I think as long as it compliments you and you are comfortable in it then it will look great! What is going to look bad ona beautifully sandy beach with the crystal blue ocean and sky as your backdrop?

       

       

      Just got the call tonight that my dress has arrived so now to plan a trip to go get it!!!!!!!!!!

        We'll be neighbors!! Congratulations!  

        I went to the store twice this week to try on my white and the off white. I ordered the off white today!  So, now I have a dress to sell :)  I just posted in one of the "white or ivory" posts about my decision. This website has been SOOO helpful! I found the Jellyfish and Julia through it. I love both Katya and Julia's work and am so happy they are in the DR! I read one of your posts about phil s. on another thread and I can't agree with you more! He wasn't really our style (although he is a great photographer) but felt that was one of our only options, I was so happy to come across Julia and Katya in this website (what did we do before internet!)
