I Have the Satin Sample Board

I ordered the satin sample board because I'm not sure I want a white/ivory dress and color is very important to me, and because I wanted to test their shipping practices, which seem to be as others have described them.


On first look the colors online, at least on my monitor, tend to skew a bit cooler than the samples I received.  IOW the real life samples are slightly warmer toned than what I see on my monitor.


The Ivory is very pale, similar to bridal shop Ivories.  The Lt. Champagne is more like a true elephant ivory.


Let me know if you'd like a verbal comparison and I'll do my best. (I'm an artist).  I'll probably be selling the board when I'm done with it.

I am curious to hear your verbal comparison of the ivory vs. the lt. champagne.  I want a dress that's not too white, but not something too beige or pink.


Thanks :)

I forgot to mention that my fiance and his groomsmen are wearing barongs (see link below), and I don't want my dress to be darker than this:

I would go with the ivory.  It took me so long to reply because I never had time to look at the samples in daylight while looking at the link.  


The lighting in that photo makes me nervous--it's deliberately low and angled in order to show the texture (which is beautiful, btw).  The lt. champagne looks like it would show too much color against it.  


I think the ivory is going to look very white when you get it, but don't worry, it's not white!

Hi blissing,


How did you get the sample board? I see where you can order swatches, but I can't seem to find out to order a sample board. I'd love to see the chiffon sample board! Thanks!

I'm not sure how I ordered it anymore!  I was thinking of selling the board since I don't need it anymore...if I find it again I'll post here and let you know.  


I ended up not ordering from them, fyi.

blissing, did you end up getting a dress from a local shop?  Or did you order from a website?  Just curious.  I would definitely be interested in buying it.
