Dress Color .... White or Ivory for beach wedding??

Recommended Posts

My input is the same as everyone else! I didn't think about the setting at all, just what looked best on me, and that is Ivory......either is going to look great in the setting, just make sure its what looks best on you!

Definitely depends on your complexion. I am very dark skinned so the white POPS on me, but would likely wash someone fair skinned out. It also depends on the fabric and style of dress.

Try on all the different shades of dresses. It totally depends on complexion so you want to make sure you buy a dress that compliments your skin tone!

 

My dress was a light gold color. :)

 

I should probably put a wedding picture back in my siggy.

Of course I feel that the best choice is whatever looks best on YOU since you're the bride, the main attraction of the wedding :) However, I did take into consideration that the light colored sand on the beach may look best with a white. I really don't think it matters either way, but if white looks good on you, it may 'pop' against the light sand a little better? Just a thought. I actually got a casablanca gown in 'diamond white' because I didn't care for how I looked in stark white or the darker ivory....

I ended up going with ivory but didn't really know it wasn't white until I asked!! When I tried on thw white it was far to bright for my complexion. But hnestly I don't think it makes a difference. Try a lot on and have fun. See what you like and you will know once you have found the one!

I also ended up with an Ivory dress and I didn't know it wasn't white until I was told. Also, the sample dress was ivory and they didn't have it white so I was afraid of ordering the white and not liking it, so I went with what I fell in love with. I have olive skin and even though white tends to pop on me, the white dresses I did try on were too stark. so again go with what looks best on you.

It's completely preference and skin tone. I ended up with oyster, I was planning on white but my dress is so pretty is oyster and I love it.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
