    Ok, so I found my dress, but now I'm doubting the color and I'm starting to freak out. This is the Mori Lee #1664 satin in Candlelight. It looks more champagne on me in one photo and it looks more ivory in the next. It does have more of a pink tone as the ivory had too much yellow and I didn't like that. I really didn't even notice it was a different color until I saw it next to a bunch of other dresses in my dressing room. I had originally planned on my groom wearing a white linen short sleeve shirt, but I think it won't "match" me now. He doesn't like ivory and says its "too yellow". He is driving me insane and I wish he would cooperate with ivory, but looks like that isnt going to happen.  The sample they had in store was only the candlelight.

     

    So should I keep the color I have:

    or possibly try to change it to white. Here is a bride (NOT ME) in the dress in the white color. moriwhite.jpg

      I would go for the white, personally. The ivory does look a bit too much against your skin, which is funny because for most of us it is the total opposite! 

      On the other hand, lighting in salons is AWFUL! I would ask if you could walk outside for just a minute (YES, they do this at some salons and give you a little hand mirror to take) and will go outside with you so you can see what the color *really* looks like.

        Thank you!!! I just changed it to white. I would rather have it be white than stand out from my groom and I figured it would look even darker on the beach at sunset.

          You should go with the color that makes you feel beautiful.  But if you go with the candlelight, have your groom wear grey, or tan suit.  and not white.

          I agree with asking to see the dress in the sunlight.  Since you'll be getting married outside, that's really important.  Perhaps bring a white shirt along and compare them.

           

          My husband wore a white shirt with my champagne dress and I don't think it looks bad.

           

          This is a picture that my mom took during our trash the dress session (so in NO WAY is it professional, but it shows you my dress color compared to his white shirt)

            Yes, keep in mind that your ivory / "candlelight" dress will probably look much brighter under sunlight.  Also keep in mind that for the most part, men do not know or care about the difference between white, off-white, ivory, etc.  Maybe your fiancĀ© is different, but I know that I could hand mine a shirt in any shade of white or ivory and he'd call them all "white".  :)

              I went ahead and switched to white. Groom hates ivory shirt and my wedding is at sunset so the candlelight would have looked darker. I'd rather be safe with the white and have a cohesive look. Thanks for your comments.
