Hi everyone! This is my first post on WW so bear with me lol. I went to a bridal shop that was closing in my area and they had wedding dresses that were 75% off so I went to look. The bridal consultant ended up bringing me this gorgeous 2 piece ball gown that I absolutely loved on me and it was only $200 so I needed up purchasing the dress. The only reservation I have is that the dress is champagne. Not champagne with an ivory overlay, just straight champagne. I really enjoy the dress but I’m torn because I’ve always imagined myself in a ivory or white dress. My wedding is more than a year away so I have plenty of time to figure it out but I wanted to know if anyone has been in a similar dilemma? I unfortunately didn’t take a picture of myself in the dress.
Can you take a picture of just the dress? It sounds beautiful. I would say keep looking if you are iffy. You can potentially get a second dress and use one for the ceremony and the other for the reception.

I took the dress out and it was easier for me to put it on and take a picture as opposed to finding somewhere to hang it and take a picture of it in my house
My dress is actually champagne and I absolutely love it!! I agree w/ the previous post, if you don't love yourself in it or feel iffy then keep looking and keep this as a 2nd dress to change into! I say if it looks amazing on you then trust that you will look absolutely beautiful and save yourself some extra cash!!
The color is absolutely stunning but if you're not 100% sold on it, then I'd definitely look for another dress. You can either wear it for your ceremony and then change to a different dress for your reception OR you can just try re-selling it online. Whichever you decide, I wish you the best of luck.
That dress looks gorgeous on you, and it looks very bridal. However, it's ok to change your mind if you have your heart really set on white or ivory. I think it's beautiful, elegant, and bridal, but the most important thing is if you feel like a beautiful bride in it. Can you picture yourself walking down the aisle to your future spouse in that dress?
The shop even offered to let me try the dress on in ivory and I said no, but later wondered if that was a mistake and got super stressed. After trying it on again recently I fell in love all over again and calmed down. My advice would be to do that (carefully of course! I was queued I'd get mine dirty somehow or rip the lace 😫 so I handle it as little as possible but looking forward to getting fitted just so I can see it on and fall in love again! 😍 Attached photo of the dress
I say, dare to be different! It's beautiful! You will make a beautiful bride. It's ok to divert from the norm, makes it more memorable and special. I vote yes, to that champagne dress

Your dress is gorgeous! Thank you! The longer I think about it the more I feel like my reasoning for wanting to wear white or ivory is based in wanting to be “traditional” but it’s my wedding and I should do what I want!
