    Ivory? Not white but closer to white than colorful??

    Moscato. It’s a subtle blush.

    White! I almost chose an ivory dress but couldn't. I love the bright white look of my wedding dress. Smiley smile

    Mine is white, I like the tradition of the bride being in white. Plus I want to stand out.

    Technically ivory with a nude underlay, but it looks white to me!

    Mine is bright white! I wanted a champagne dress initially but fell in love with mine when I saw it!

    Ivory. White is a bit too pure for me.

    My dress is a weird mix of blush and champagne but the color on the dress says it’s gold.

    I thought I’d wind up in ivory or off-white, but as it turns out I’m one of that special percentage who doesn’t get as washed out by bright white as the off-white variations, so QUITE THE WHITE for me.

    My wedding dress is ivory with a cashmere underlay. It pretty much looks white though. Definitely not colorful

    My dress is ivory and it wasn’t intentional! It was my favorite! Our colors are coral, aqua, and ivory

    My dress is ivory with a blush under-skirt so it’s not quite white but not entirely a pop of color

    I've got 6 dresses on my list to try on when I go shopping in a few months. 3 are color & 3 are Ivory. I have no idea which I will choose. I guess I'll just see what makes me the happiest! I never thought I would EVER wear a color, but we recently canceled our church wedding and decided to just hit up the court house. I feel like the court house setting opened the door to wear any color I want!! I am excited to try some on.

    Go for color color girl:

    Although brides choose white to symbolize purity of the soul, white did not become popular until the 1840s. White was not chosen for a wedding dress until after Queen Victoria wore a white dress when she married Albert of Saxe-Coburg. In those days, white symbolized wealth and blue was a symbol of purity.
