Diamond White vs. White

Recommended Posts

Not so helpful... but off the site Maggie website:

 

What is the difference between White and Diamond White?

Our Diamond White is a very light ivory. It has a beautiful softness that makes it very flattering on all skin tones. White is a true, pure white color that would give you that “wedding white” look. Our authorized retailers will be able to show you the differences between Diamond White and White with their fabric swatches.

Abbie- I think EVERY bride who ever encountered the Maggie gowns for the first time wondered the same thing. My initial thought was the same as yours. Diamond White should be a brilliant, pure white. But not according to this manufacturer. Oh well. I'm all for cream/ivory/off white..WHATEVER. But it sure seems hard to match.

I think they created the diamond white because not everyone looks good in stark "white", so I think the diamond white is almost muted a bit, to look good on brides that want a "white" dress.

 

does that make any sense? I feel like I just said the word "white" 800 times and confused myself!

I think it's called "diamond white" because that sounds good. They are selling them to brides who probabaly recently got a diamond they can't stop looking at.

this is probably the color of my dress. it's called ivory, but it's somewhere between ivory & white. I guess thats diamond white. Mike wants to wear "pure, snowy white because he is angelic" he says. He says he wants a white shirt & white pants too. I'll get him some angel wings while I'm at it.

Oh ya...get some for me too while you're at it!

So, you have faith that the pure alongside the light ivory/diamond white will be ok? I know I'm over thinking this. But damn.

I'm sending something to IslandImporter.com where I found the shirts I want for the guys. They are good about customizing orders, and they do have an "off white" version of the pants I want for them, so I'm going to ask if they can do the shirts in that same color and material. The off white that the guy is wearing in the pic looks like what I am imagining for the Maggie Diamond White.

I NEED to be more worried about how I'm going to fit into this dress without putting somebody's eye out.

I haven't gotten to Mike's shirt yet, but I was hoping to find something similar to to color of mine. I need to spend a weekend shopping for his wedding clothes. He needs an entire vacation wardrobe. If I leave it up to him, he'll be in his torn up korn t-shirt from high school or something else with holes in it. He doesn't shop for clothes.

I bought my dress in diamond white. I thought it'd be WAAAAY more ivory than it is. To me, it looks stark white. They tried to show me the difference and I couldn't really tell. Diamond white apparently is just a very little, tiny bitt less white than the White dresses. It's white, not ivory!

 

I don't think it'd look weird or bad, etc if your FH's shirt didn't quite match your dress! Stop stressin'! wink.gif

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
