I've started the dress shopping process and I'm so confused! I had pictured wearing a white dress, but every store I've gone to has had almost all ivory samples. I'm not opposed to wearing ivory, but since I had planned on wearing white, I'd like to at least try on a white dress. There's one dress that I really like so far- it's an older Jim Hjelm- style 8962 (really bad pic but you get the idea). It can be ordered in white, but I don't really feel comfortable ordering something that I haven't seen before. And I haven't found any stores in my area that even have a different white Jim Hjelm so I could at least see the color. Also, if I wear ivory does my fiance have to wear an ivory shirt? I started to broach that subject with him, and being the metrosexual that he is, he had a full-on panic attack. Lastly, do you even like this dress? Any input would be much appreciated!!
