Ivory vs. white

My dress color is available in ivory and in white. The lady at the salon suggested getting ivory because it's not so "stark white." she said a lot of brides these days don't go with white, ivory is a more subtle tone especially on fair skinned brides. What color did you order?

    White, the dress I tried on was ivory but I just thought it would look more stunning in white. I'm hoping I'm right Smiley smile

    I went with ivory myself. The sample that I tried on was in white and it was too bright for me. It is ultimately up to you which color you want.

    Mine is champagne with an ivory lace overlay and I love it. White can sometimes appear bluish in pictures but is say it's up to you. I'm blonde and the darker tone just looks better on me IMO but it's your day go white if you want to!

    I went with ivory. But I would go with whatever works with your skin tone.

    I went with white. Getting a white dress is important to me as well as my family so if the dress didn't come in white, I didn't even try it on!

    I went with ivory lace with champagne underneath. I had the choice between that, ivory on top of ivory, and white on white.

    Ivory because I have fair skin and white would wash me out.

    I went with Ivory...but it's a light ivory. Most of the white dresses that I tried on were close to "sheet of paper" white. However, some white dresses were a little deeper. I figure...if it means something to you to wear white or you look good in it, go for it!

    Ivory! Honestly, I thought the ivory dresses were white until the store told me otherwise! They brought out of a white dress for me to see and it was too bright for my taste. The ivory was just white enough for me!

    It depends on skin tone but I didn't even consider a white dress

    I always prefer ivory over white. White is too harsh/bright.

    Ivory. White is not very flattering on most.

    I think it depends on your skin tone. Not many people can pull of stark white. I am very fair skinned and my dress is light gold.

    I got ivory, I feel like white would be too harsh for a fall wedding

    Ivory. I'm super pale (like, can't ever find makeup pale enough for me and often glow a little in pics) and the white just really looked bad on me. We actually thought I had been trying on white until it came up and the consultant said it was ivory. She then showed us pure white and it looked over bleached and really odd on my skin.

    White. My dress has a lot of beading and detail and I thought it stood out more on the white dress.
