Dresses

So I just got home from round 1 of dress shopping. I thought for sure it was going to be a stressful time but I had SO much fun!! And I found a dress that i LOVE.. except for that it only comes in ivory. it is absolutely beautiful and i loved it so much i didnt want to take it off. but i want fuschia, black, white and silver as my wedding colors.. so i dont know if i should keep looking till i find something similar in white.. or if it doesnt matter what color my dress is compared to the colors of the wedding.. any thoughts?p.s. i have pics. just dont know how to put them up!!

  • its just that everything else about the wedding will be a pure white.. and i feel like ivory may clash with all the white aspects.. but i cant seem to even find a dress close to it in a white..

  • NO ONE will notice except for you.  Also you may find that ivory looks better with your skin tone, so you should go with the dress you love and not worry about matching everything.In my opinion ivory and white are interchangeable.  Get the dress and stop stressing.
  • I honestly can't tell that Ivory wedding dresses aren't white. I think it'd be better to "clash" with the ultra white aspects of your wedding (which you won't- as pp said no one will notice) than to be washed out in a super white dress.
  • Oh and again- I just wanted to say that when I went to try on dresses- the dress I LOVED ended up being ivory and I didn't even realize it wasn't white. Seriously. Also, the real white just did not look as good as the ivory on me. If you fall in love with how you look in the ivory dress, I don't know if I would risk ordering it in white and it not looking as good.

  • As PPs said, NO ONE will notice. AND, it's tough to tell the difference between white and ivory anyway. It makes you feel beautiful -- end of story! :)
  • Would it be horrible to substitute ivory for the white? Ivory looks amazing with black and silver I'm sure fuschia would look nice too.
