    Hey ladies.

     

    I am not having second thoughts on my dress but on the color.  I ordered my dress in ivory but now Im not sure if I should have chose white.  Anyone have any thoughts?

      SAME HERE!!  Plus FI is wearing a white linen suit so I had to be as white or whiter than him.  I can't wait to try it on.  Mine comes in next month.

      Personally, I'm a fan of white.  That being said, I'm olive skinned, I tan dark quickly, and we will be in Punta Cana for almost 4 days before the wedding.  So white will be suiting me...if you are fair at all, or don't tan dark, then ivory is definitely the way to go.  It's all personal preference too...

       

      Good luck!!!!

As you can see, I loved that look so much that I had it on my own. Really good choice and go with your gut!

            Even though I already bought a dress, I'm now having dress regret and this is my new favorite dress that I might buy!

                  I say stick with the ivory. I ordered mine months ago and was having the same reservations. In my mind, "ivory" meant "yellow." I actually went back to the store and tried it on. Ivory is still white. It's just not diamond white. I also tried my dress on in diamond white, and it was soooo white! I thought it made me look...I don't know, fake? It might have just been my skin tone because I'm more olive-y, but I really liked the soft look of the ivory. :)

                    Sorry for double posting...

                    Everyone has such beautiful dresses, but I'm curious about TTD! I've seen a lot of people trash their actual dress while others buy a second dress. I'd really love to see some TTD pics from previous brides or some TTD dresses from upcoming brides. I started a thread if you want to post them there.

                     

                    I have no idea what I'm going to do. I would love to be brave enough to trash my dress, but I just don't know if I can. It's too beautiful!!!!!

                      Hi Jwed12!!

                       

                      I was having the same thoughts and reservations as you when I first bought my dress.  Here's what I have found out.  If your dress is a very chiffon-y, not silk or satin or (big) tulle dress, typically all of the salt and sand come out with a good dry-cleaning.  I actually found a thread on here about trashing the dress and it not being ruined after.  I was to the point I was looking for a second dress (just a white bridesmaid dress) to trash, then I ordered a second wedding dress, found that post and I'm going for it!!!! 

                       

                      If I can find that thread again, I will try to post it here for you to read into.

                       

                      Good luck!!!
