I got nothing but compliments on it, so I say... go with white!!!

    I did that too (putting the colors in the natural light) and thought the same as you. The sales associate kept assuring me that the off-white will go, even after I told her my colors. I just don't get that. But, anyways, I too will go with the plain white :)

      As a photographer, I like off white or ivory because it tends to photograph better.

      White White tends to wash out the color of the bride.  It also creates blown spots in your photo in direct sunlight like that on a beach.  It also tends to hide detailing because of being so bright.

      None of these things are a problem as long as your photographer knows how to deal with it, which any good photographer should.
