    Mine was ivory. I never went in thinking I wanted a particular color. I just wanted what looked best on me. White was NOT that color.

      Mine is ivory. I knew I didn't want a white dress. For some reason, I've always loved ivory (light champagne) wedding dresses.

        Mine photographed Ivory, but was really diamond white or white I think. Keep in mind though, it really does depend on the type of fabric you choose, white in taffita vs. silk satin will look completely different. white in more man made fibers that are woven together with different fibers will be WHITE. You will never truly get a white white looking dress in natural fibers because of their nature. In order to get a White white dress even the synthetic fibers sometimes need to be dyed white. So my bottom line is try to keep in mind what color you want your dress to look like in photos, an White silk satin natural fiber dress will photograph more ivory, vs. a white taffita dress will photograph white white. Hope this helps.

          Mine is called Ivory, but to me, it's really darker then that. I would call it champange or antique ivory.

            Carly, I like that term/color "antique ivory". Edit: my dress is Antique Ivory.

                Glad to be of service, Amy! I just really don't know what else to call it, cuz it is darker then ivory to me, but not quite champagne. Who knew there were so many terms for colors so close!

                  Mine was "diamond white" which is really a warmer white, very close to ivory& champagne.

                    well i voted white, but it really isn't but kinda, it's lace and they call the colour 'natural'. whatever, it's pretty white if you ask me.
