Ivory or white?

I always grew up thinking I would wear a white dress at my wedding, but now after seeing the current trends, I feel like ivory is so beautiful!  What are your guys thoughts?  Ivory or white?

I'm wearing Ivory. I have been married before and we still have family that believe you don't wear white if youve been married before. That's not the main reason why I'm doing it. I think its beautiful. I think you should go with what you want

Ivory is white. It's just a softer more suttle white. Wear what looks better on your skin tone and what you feel more beautiful in. Plus, every store's version of ivory is different! And every fabric, ivory looks completely different. It could look more yellow than you want it to (yuck)!


Go look at my bio and you'll see that the dress that I chose is ivory. But that's what looked best on my skin tone and what I felt most beautiful in. ♥

Ditto FutureMrs...sometimes ivory looks better on different skin tones, as does white. Try both on!! See what you think looks better!


When I was trying on dresses, the designer of the dress was actually there, and she kind of talked me into getting ivory because it still looks white in pictures, but gives a nice glow she said, versus white, but I've seen beautiful diamond white dresses that look great in photos as well. So don't let anybody talk you into anything -get what color you really want!

IVORY!!! My dress was ivory but it looked white with my skin tone until we would hold something white up to it or was in the light. It was beautiful.

Definitely ivory.  Honestly, an ivory dress looks white, it's just softer.  I personally feel that a white dress is too bright. But it also depends what looks good on you.  I have an olive skin tone and wanted my wedding to be soft and romantic, so the ivory worked well.

today it is totally up to you.  i say find a dress you love first.  it may not come in pure white.  that would make your decision easy.  if you find a dress that comes in both white and ivory, then i would go with which ever looks best with your skin tone.

I wore white! I wanted a dazzling white dress: because of my skin tone (Im black!!) and some other personal beliefs. I actually turned down some gowns I liked because they were not white. My white gown paid off, it was all sparkl-ly in the pictures.


I would wear white anytime..

I went with ivory because I just liked it better. It felt softer to me. This is my first marriage, I did not choose anything based on "current trends", I just went with whatever I liked. My grandmother wore an ivory dress as well.  Like everybody else said, it depends on your skin tone whether white or ivory would look best. Dress image:  http://bit.ly/1ctywWZ

Ivory is my favorite color so it was automatic for me to have an ivory wedding dress.

You go with whatever your little heart desires!! Seriously, there are no rules so wear whichever color you like best. And honestly, aren't there like 500 shades of white so chances are it won't just be white or ivory anway!
