Champagne Vs Blush

Hi all,


I ordered my dress about three months ago (Glorietta Lynette by Maggie Sottero) and it hasn’t come in yet. I tried it on in store (as pictured) and was told the one I had on was ivory over blush so I ordered it in that color. The more I look, the more I feel it’s ivory over champagne NOT blush. I’m terrified I ordered it in the wrong color and won’t look good in the one that arrives. What do you think, is this Ivory over blush or ivory over champagne?Champagne Vs Blush 1

    I can’t tell what color it is, other than it clearly not being white. Different designers have different ideas of what blush, champagne and ivory look like, so this may be what they call blush. If you’re that concerned it was ordered wrong, check with the store. You can always go back and try on the sample gown, which should have a tag on it saying what color it is. It’s a beautiful dress!

    Thank you so much! The dress in the store was definitely tagged as “ivory over blush” but the more I look at the one from the designer online, tagged as “ivory over champagne” the more the colors look the same to me. I’m just nervous!

    Don’t worry. Like the pp said, different blush to one designer is champagne to another. If you ordered the color you lived in the shop, then don’t worry.


    Also, what you see on the Maggie website may not look the same in person.

    How committed are you to Ivory over blush? I personally feel that color looks very lovely on you but personally I'm more partial to Champagne than blush. I think the dress looks lovely overall so you could probably order the IB over blush if that's what you're really committed to but I don't want you to feel like you look bad in that color because you don't.

    I’ve already ordered it in ivory over blush because that was the way the one I loved in the shop was tagged. My concern is that the one I tried on in the shop actually was ivory over champagne and was mislabeled, and I’m worried I’ll have a different color dress arriving!

    I’ve already ordered it in ivory over blush because I loved the dress in the store that was labeled that way. My concern is that the dress in the store was mislabeled as blush when it’s actually champagne and now when my dress arrives it won’t be the same color as the dress I loved! When I look at the dress I have on it looks champagne to me, not blush. But it was labeled as blush.

    Honestly, I think you're going to have to just take a deep breath and wait for your dress to come in. The picture you posted from online doesn't look the same as the dress in person because I've found that wedding dresses look so much different when you actually see them. To me, the dress you have on looks like blush - it looks more pink than champagne. The designer's champagne might look similar in online photos, but in person I would assume the coloring is more obvious. If you're really concerned, you could talk to the salon and confirm that it's blush and not champagne. Also maybe try to find photos of real brides wearing the dress in natural lighting as opposed to the posed photo shoot lighting? That might help you see the coloring better too.

    Thank you so much. It provides me a lot of relief to hear someone say it does look blush. Even if it did come in the wrong color, the wedding is too soon to re-order (and it’s not in the budget) so I’d just have to live with it anyhow. I haven’t been able to find any photos online of it in ivory over blush so I’ll just have to relax and have faith.

    I had a Maggie Sottero ivory over champagne, and this looks more pinkish than my dress.

    I agree that there is definitely a subtle pinkish cast in the photos, so I'd assume it is ivory over blush. Daughter's dress (Rebecca Ingram, so the MS family) was ivory over gold, and while it was subtle, the lining absolutely had a pale gold glow to it. I think the biggest benefit of ivory lace over any lining color is how much more the lace details "pop" against the background color. Your dress is gorgeous, especially because of the way the blush highlights the lace detailing. (Also, your dress will look VERY different in different lighting situations. We found, the brighter the light, the more subtle the color.) Congrats on a GREAT choice! Smiley heart

    I don't see a how the tag on the dress you tried on in store would be wrong. I'm sure the store you got your dress from knows how to order what you chose..


    I was worried that my dress wasnt ordered in the right size and that it wouldn't fit. I had no reason to worry. They knew what they were doing. I was just freaking myself out for nothing.

    I was worried because they hand type out an information card for the dress containing the designer, style, style number, colors it comes in, sizes it comes in and possible add ons and then they attach that to the bag it’s in so that all the information is accessible and then all the dresses and no matter the designer all the tags look the same so people can read them easily as they browse. The color of the sample dress is circled in pen after the card is made so there is room for error if things aren’t checked properly. I’ve known the card to have errors through personal experience (the first dress I fell for was labeled as coming in ivory but upon trying to order it as such it only came in white) I doubt that the consultants search the actual dress for a tag when the card they make is more easily accessible. I’m probably nervous for nothing but I just wanted some opinions to calm my nerves.

    Oh I see. I am sorry that happened. Would you have time to exchange or would that not be possible?

    I wouldn’t have time to exchange, or the money anyhow. I just wanted to see what others thought to see if I was worrying for nothing.

    As I see there is a small difference between champagne and blush so I think you will look beautiful no matter what and the dress is a beautiful fit on you.
