    This is the dress I've put a deposit down on. I keep having doubts about the color now. It's a Mori Lee 1664 in Candlelight. The white was so stark white and the ivory was very yellow. This color was close to the ivory but with more pink than yellow hues. Sorry for the deer in headlights look- I wasn't looking when the pic was taken. Now I'm going back and forth on what color my groom should wear- I know that's another topic!

      This is a beautiful dress and looks like it fits you perfectly!  White - especially those stark whites, is a very hard color for anyone to pull off.  And you're right, ivory colors often look yellowish - but that's usually because you're looking at it in the bridal store and the lighting is kinda funny.  Ivory will usually just look off-white when you're in natural light and it photographs beautifully on just about everyone.  My dress is a "diamond white", which is basically an off-white.  I also felt the same way you do about the stark white versus ivory so that was the middle ground and I went with it.

        Thank you. I just went ahead and changed it to white. I was having so many doubts that the dress would like even darker at sunset on the beach and that I would stick out in photos in a diferent color than my groom. I'd rather have a cohesive look. I feel much more relieved now. Whew!
