"Blushing" Bride or simple ivory?

Sylvia, on August 26, 2020 at 10:45 PM Posted in Wedding Attire 0 15

Hi all!

I have found my dream dress. I will be ordering it online from an Etsy seller. Yes, I have read all reviews, done research, and communicated with the seller. It's the real deal!

FYI. I also have never tried on a wedding dress, and I don't plan on trying any in person. It will ruin the dress shopping for me because I have ALWAYS HATED dress shopping. I am risking biting the bullet on this one I see myself walking down the aisle in!

I am stuck between two colors. Soft pink (blush) or ivory.

I seem to look nice in both colors (to me at least), but I don't want my dress to clash with my party.

Bridesmaids are wearing plum purple. Groomsmen black. France is wearing a dark gray.

Order of photos: wedding dresses, bridesmaid dress, me Smiley smile

Thank y'all!

    I like blush, but I would go and try on a dress similar in those two different colors so you don't regret it

    I personally like a bit of color. The first time I ever went dress shopping as a teenager for prom, David’s Bridal had a beautiful mocha champagne dress on display. I told my mom right then and there I wanted that dress for my wedding. Sure enough, I ended up with a champagne ball gown. Something besides white or ivory seems much more dramatic to me. I think it makes the details pop even more.

    I personally would do ivory but I think the soft blush would look really pretty on you!

    Oh that’s a tough choice! I love the blush but the Ivory is so classic and timeless, as is the dress.

    I think you pick the color that best suits you, but HONESTLY - have you ever tried a dress on of this style? I'm not hesitant of purchasing my dress online (because I DID)... but I would be hesitant of purchasing a style without trying it on. Because I envisioned myself in a beautiful trumpet / mermaid dress and when I actually put it on , I looked like Charlie Tuna coming out of a starkist can. I ended up choose an A-line Sheath which was NEVER ever my choice or vision because that style looked perfect and accentuated my body the way a dress is supposed to.

    Both colors are pretty, read equally "bridal" in photos, and will be fine with your bridesmaid dresses. Fabric color preference really does come down to the coloring (skin, hair, eyes) of the person wearing the dress. I honestly think the only way you are going to know for sure is to try on the different colors. But since you aren't willing to do that, just go with whichever one you like better on a gut level.

    Oh gosh, that blush is beautiful. I also ordered my dress off of Etsy, and I LOVE IT - it's everything I hoped it would be, higher quality feeling than anything I tried on in a salon, and was like 1/4 of the price also. Best of luck!

    Thanks all for the feedback. I think I am going for the blush color. I want my day to me memorable in all ways!

    I MIGHT go try on some dresses just for giggles, we'll see!

    I can't wait to post the results once I get it!

    I think the Ivory would go best with your skin tone.

    Honestly what do you color dress would you like to look at photos of in 25 years from now? Are you wanting to be a bit out there and do a color? Do you want the “timeless” look? Personally I say it’s about whatever color makes you feel the way you want to feel on that day. I know me personally I wanted a dress with color but ended up in a white dress by accident but I’m cool with because that’s my dream dress. Which one feels like your dream? That’s your color

    I love both. I think the blush and ivory would look lovely on you. I’m loving the dresses from that Etsy seller and am debating getting a second dress from her.
