White or Ivory? Advice needed!

Recommended Posts

Hey ladies, Since planning this wedding I realize I can NOT make any decisions without over analyzing everything. lol!

I am trying to figure out what color to get for my dress. White, Ivory/Pewter Accent?

If FI wears a white shirt & I get ivory will my dress look dirty in pics? Or if I go with white will it look too bright?

Anyone have any thoughts or what they are doing. 

Still haven't had the dress moment but I am pretty sure I am going with this dress since I can't stop thinking about it & am comparing everything I try on to it.

Personally, I would want to be consistent - both in ivory or both in white. Depending on the shades, it could possibly make your dress look yellow compared to his white shirt.

 

Just my opinion, but I always say "go with your gut" on decisions like this!! It will be a beautiful day regardless of the shade - but hopefully you'll have some shade so you wont be too hot (haha sorry I'm a bit punny today LOL)

 

BTW, that dress is STUNNING!

My dress is white and  my FI will be wearing a white shirt as well, then that way it will be consistent and look the same in pictures.

I ordered the Ivory. The white seemed too white with my skin tone. I was blinded in the store & thought this white in the sun will be too bright. lol Hopefully I can find him a matching shirt & we won't look bad!

I did ivory because it seemed like all the shoes I liked were ivory, not white. Plus I was also thinking like Sharon about the white being too bright outside.

I "think" there is a threat on here about ivory dresses and white grooms shirts.  I think in most cases it ended up being fine, especially if he is wearing a jacket.

Actually you should base the dress color on your skin tone versus what your groom is wearing. A white dress can really wash out someone who is very pale, therefore they need to go with Ivory. But a white dress looks fabulous with a tan! Try on a dress (any dress really) in both colors to see which one complements your skin tone better.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
