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

Recommended Posts

I think it's all about what makes you feel good. The beach is stunning and any bride on it will be, too, no matter what she is wearing.

 

My FI only had one request and that was I wear white (even though I look better in ivory--tanning here I come). So I am wearing white.

personal preference definately, I'm going with white, because I don't want to blend in with the sand. And, I think it will pop more against the sand. But I'm sure ivory looked good for everyone else...just my personal opinion. (and the picture in my head!)

I guess it's your own personal preference! For my part, when I tried on a white wedding dress, I didn't like it on me. I wanted ivory... but ended up with diamond white. It's not white, but not ivory either.

I went dress shopping wanting a white dress, but I ended up with ivory. Actually it is more off white than ivory (as I find out when I am getting accessories and they are darker than my dress!). The color I think looks great with my skin tone too.

 

I think you should go with an open mind and see what happens! You don’t want to limit yourself and say you don’t want one color or the other because you never know what you will fall in love with until you try it on.

I agree with the rest of the girls on choosing the colour that best compliments your skin tone. I went with ivory because I'm very fair-skinned and didn't want to looked washed out. True white is very bright. Diamond white is somewhere between white and ivory. Also, it may depend on the fabric of your dress. My dress was chiffon, and when I got my dress, it didn't look as "ivory" as I'd imagined, just slightly off-white.

I have an ivory dress and my fiance and groomsmen are going to wear white shirts, sleeves rolled up, and khakis. I'm considering ivory/champagne or neutral colored dresses for my bridesmaids with yellow bouquet with peacock feathers. Has anyone considered a similar color combination (white/neutrals) for everyone? I want it to look natural and classy, but I don't know if we'll pull off the look. Does anyone of photos of the similar wedding color combo??

 

Thanks!

    • 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?
