      I've been trying to decide the same thing. That dress looks pretty white though, how much brighter is the "white" as opposed to the "natural" - can you post a picture of both maybe?? 

      The lady at the bridal salon was definitely trying to steer me toward a less "bright white", I can't remember exactly why she said this, maybe because it can wash you out if you have blonde hair or something ~ but I plan on having a very nice tan by my wedding day so I'm not really worried about that.

          They didnt have the dress in white.. so i havent been able to see it. They just brought over another dress in white to show me the color. Most people say to go with the natural so it doesnt wash me out. And apparently the natural is supposed to look better in photos.. I read that on a photographers website somewhere. But like you i intend on having a good tan by then... oh the decisions....

            just my opinion - most of your guests won't be able to tell the difference between white and ivory (or natural). and most people do look better in the ivory, regardless of whether or not they tanned. When I was trying on dresses, there was a gorgeous Indian girl with dark skin trying on dresses. the ivory was incredibly beautiful on her. she was insistent on the white - which also looked pretty (she could have worn a paper sack and been drop dead beautiful!). the difference when I was watching her was that in the ivory, I saw a beautiful girl, and then a beautiful dress. In the white dress, I saw the dress first, and then the girl. again...just my opinion. good luck with your choices!!!

              I like the way you put it. I think that must be what the lady at the store meant - that in the bright white the dress kind of takes over.

                Kristi-  I also tried that dress and and fell in love with the back.  I think that it will be gorgeous as you walk down the aisle.  I too purchased a Mikaella and here is my insight.  Their white is not a true white but is a couple shades off.  However, I too have been told that the natural looks better on almost everyone and does photograph better.  I did go back and forth and ultimately decided on natural for myself.  When I look at pictures your dress as well as my own definitely still looks white.  Either way, I know that the decision can be daunting so just go with your gut!

                    We went to Kleinfelds on Saturday and not only did they choose my group to film for the show "Say Yes to the Dress" but I said yes and finally found my dress! I was certain I wanted a mermaid/trumput style gown and was pretty certain I def didnt want anything princessy but after I tried this dress all that went out the window =) It absolutely made ne feel beautfiul, sexy and a bride! Like a dummy we were all so wrapped up with the camera crew no one took a pick of me with it on and it wont be ready til March 2013 ugh!! But in any event here is my dress....My Dress 1.JPG
