I’m planning a black, white, and yellow wedding (like that of Knottie SpringChic) but stark white dresses just didn’t look good with my coloring. I ended up with an ivory dress, but the actual color is called "ivory silver" so it’s not so ivory that it looks yellowy but it’s also definitely not white.
What would you do about having a black and white wedding with the ivory dress? Am I completely overthinking this? I love the look of black and ivory together, but I’m not sure it will pop as much when yellow is thrown into the mix. I’m mostly concerned about stationary and linens, as the BMs’ dresses will most likely be all black (maybe a sash though).

There is no rule that your stationery and linens have to match your dress I had a similar conversation with my mom recently, because I want a champagne dress but our linens are going to be ivory…. we joked that no one is going to hold a napkin up to me and say "tsk, tsk! You don’t match your tables!" Hehe.
I think you’re completely fine going with black, white, and yellow as wedding colors/accents, but wearing an ivory dress yourself. Especially if your girls are wearing black, your dress will still pop next to them. If they were wearing yellow I’d maybe be a tiny bit concerned, but if yellow is only going to be an accent in terms of flowers and decor, I think you will be fine. Plus, as far as pictures go, I always think that ivory/champagne dresses look much whiter in photos than I ever expect, so it really shouldn’t be a big deal.

PS – I just looked at SpringChic’s bio (so pretty!!!!) and I could swear her first dress is ivory….. it’s hard to tell but when she’s in front of that stark white background, it looks ivory, yet doesn’t clash or look bad.

I agree 100% with everything Miss Blushing said! I sincerely doubt anyone will notice and it will still "go" with your color scheme even if it’s not an exact match! Go for it!
