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.
