    Hi ladies!

    Since I had less than 3 months to plan this wedding, I had to buy a dress off the rack. The one I fell in love with (and already purchased) happens to be a Maggie Sottero in Diamond White.

    Does anyone else have a Diamond White dress? Is my dress going to look funny against FH's white linen?

    I wouldn't have given it a second thought, but I've had a few comments from some people at home, and they're freaking me out!

      I have no idea! Have you held them up to each other??
      I'm sure it will be fine though!!!

        I ordered my dress in diamond white, I like it WAY better than regular white - FI plans on getting a linen suit - I am sure it will go either way :)

          Holding them next to each other is the obvious way to see how it'll look.....except that I don't have my dress at home because it is being altered at the bridal shop, which is 40 miles away, so I don't really want to drive there just to see if the linen matches. I thought it would just be easier to ask you ladies :)

            I have a diamond white maggie sottero dress - I love the color :) I don't think it will look funny.

                it'll be fine - white, off-white, diamond white, ivory - its all the same color family so nothing is going to clash. can't say the shades will match exactly, but it won't look funny. no worries!

                    When I ordered my dress, which is an off-white, I asked the designer (who happened to be there for a trunk show) about clashing whites with the groom. I was worried about his white shirt and the designer stated that you are never going to be able to match whites perfectly, not to worry about it and that this should not be a concern. As another poster stated, they are all just different shades of the same color family. So, my half a cent is you'll be gorgeous and it won't look funny at all. Good luck!

                      I've got a Diamond White Maggie too.

                      White-white can actually be a very harsh "colour". It tends to be stark and kinda cold to the point of almost fluorescing. Diamond white is often recommended since it is softer and thus tends to compliment just about everyone's complexion!
