    I wore ivory. I tried a white one, but between my hair and my very fair skin I just looked too… bright? Does that make sense? lol!

    When I went to try on my dress they only had it in ivory so ivory it was and I didn’t feel washed out in it. As for going with a gold/champagne dress – I think it really depends on your features and how much makeup you feel comfortable with. In general, I do think you have to apply a lot more makeup to pull of beige if you’re blond.

    I think it depends on your skin tone rather that hair color! For example I’m a warm-skinned redhead, when most redheads seem to be cool-toned so we look good in different colors 🙂

    All pale and pastel colours make me look washed out, IMHO, so I wore a dark colour.

    That said, when I tried on white dresses I preferred the white ones, so long as they weren’t really stark arctic white (it tended to depend on the fabric – some of the white satin dresses lookred realy white, whereas lace was a softer colour). Some of the ivory dresses were too cream for me, but some were OK. 

    Also, it isn’t so much the blonde hair thing but the skin tones. I have cool skin tones so I completely avoid gold/cream/beige/champagne or anything with yellow in it. If I had gone for a pale colour, it probably would have been ice pink or pale silver/pewter. I tried those colours too and liked them on me more than I did ivory or white. 

    It also depends on whether you have a tan. I’m as pale as, but if you have a tan you can probably get away with more.

    @WNYBride704:  I am very pale with white blonde hair and have cool undertones. I didnt really get a choice in colour as my dress was a sample so I will be wearing diamond white which fortunately suites me and I don’t think that it washes me out…. everyone said that I look like a snow queen though which I quite like.

    I tried on lots of different colours of dresses and I found that silver and pearl colours suited me most. White seemed to suit me better than ivory as ivory has warm undertones.

    So I guess it depends on whether you have warm or cool undertones… but just go to a bridal store and try lots of different colours on, even if you don’t like the dress it will give you some idea of what suits you

    My dress was ivory. This was my second wedding, so I would have felt odd wearing white.

    Light gold looked INFINITELY better with my hair colour (a dark blonde with natural golden highlights) and I would have gone down that route in a second if the dresses I loved came in that colour! My skin tone is olive, if that helps at all too. In the end I went with ivory 🙂

    The tulle on mine is a champagne/light gold color. The lace is ivory/natural.

    I also think skin tone matters more than hair color.  Off whites don’t look good on me, I have a lot of gold tone in my skin.  So I went with true white, which was much more flattering.

    @WNYBride704:  

     

    My hair is a little lighter now. But I don’t feel like it washed me out. I love having a super white dress =)

    I’m a natural blonde too, and I went with diamond white.   I think it looked fine with my skin tone.

     

    A friend of mine got married two summers ago, she’s also a natural blonde (although her hair is darker than mine) but she tans well, she’s not as white as I am and she went with ivory for her dress becasue it went better with her hair and skin tone.

    Though I didn’t plan to, I went with a white dress. It’s not in yet, otherwise I’d post photos. However, it looked far better on my olive skintone and blonde hair than ivory did. I didn’t ever think that would be the case. I just knew when I put it on that the stark white soft, flowy fabric gave me a glow that any of the ivory dresses I tried on failed to do. Like the PPs said, it’s hard to say until you’ve tried each color with your own skin tone.
