Hi ladies! I bought my wedding dress months ago and at the time, I loved it. However, now I’m getting nervous because it isn’t the traditional white color. It’s champagne and ivory. Did any ladies wear a champagne dress? Do you have pictures? What color veil did you wear? Thanks in advance!
Very few people wear true white anymore because it actually photographs blue and washes many people out. Most dresses in salons are ivory. My dress was champagne with an ivory lace overlay. I wore an ivory veil, and it matched perfectly.
Mine is champagne which I like but the only reason I may exchange it is if I lose more weight than expected and decide to get a whole new dress lol.
Yes mine was ivory lace with champagne sheath underneath!!!! I love champagne it is beautiful. My veil had both ivory and champagne tones. You will be beautiful!
Hi! I have a champagne dress with ivory lace appliqué and went through the same OMG my dress isn’t white/ivory freak out. But now I look at ivory dresses and can’t see the lace pattern as much and love mine so much more. I am wearing an ivory veil with it. It compliments the dress nicely and doesn’t get “lost”. Please don’t mind my double chin, my mom took the photo at an awful angle. Haha
My dress was labeled as gold. With the tulle it looks more champagne/ivory in pictures. I’ve included two pictures from my wedding so you can see it. I didn’t have a veil - I was having a beach wedding and I didn’t want to fight with a veil. Thank goodness I decided against it because it was extremely windy that day as a tropical storm was coming ashore in LA. The other reason I was against a veil is because my hair doesn’t hold hair pieces that well. I know my hairdresser would have done wonders to make sure the veil stayed. After all the wind on the beach, only a small strand of hair fell down.
I would say don’t worry about if your dress isn’t traditional white. Is the dress you picked the dress of your dreams? What drew you to picking that dress? Do you imagine having a veil - do you want a veil? You can always do a really cute hair piece to make your hair stand out. But for your veil I would probably go with an ivory/champagne veil. No matter what dress you wear, you are going to be stunning. And you should have a dress you love. I remember slipping my dress on everytime I tried it on. And I was so excited to put my dress on for my wedding day and show my whole family and my soon to be husband. You are going to be a beautiful bride. I wish you the best of luck with the rest of wedding planning. Happy days! 🥰
Mine is Blush with Ivory lace overlay — any color is beautiful- it’s what you feel comfortable in!
I had tha EXACT same freakout (sometimes still do lol.) Attached is my champagne dress. I try and remember that I LOVED it when it was on enough to buy it and I'm probably being anxious for no reason (I have an anxiety condition.) I'm sure your dress is lovely!!
