If you buy any sort of wedding apparel online, and your dress is pure white, ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS ask if an item that is labelled as white is actually white.
My hair flower arrived and it is all sorts of ivory, though the vendor had it listed as white and in the photos it looked white.
Same thing happened to me with the shoes I bought (that were over $200). Not the white I thought they were supposed to be, which is why I’m selling them.
I also dropped more money than I’d care to admit on some crochet doilies labelled as white, and they arrived and half of them were almost beige. LIKE, SERIOUSLY.
The hair flower is pretty but holy F what am I supposed to do with a damn ivory flower. The netting is white and the lace behind it is white but the flower and the pearly centre is IVORY. ughhhhhhhh. Maybe it won’t be super noticeable? I guess I’ll have to put it on with the dress and see.
For your own sanity, ask! ALWAYS ASK.
This has been a public service announcement from My 1950s - MY WEDDING DRESS IS WHITE NOT IVORY GODDAMNIT - weddings.
