Like zip.  Honestly there’s not even a huge difference between ivory and white.  I’m convinced it’s just something designers do to drive us crazy!

I had a diamond white dress from maggie sottero and I had to figure out what shoes to go with it.  I had white and ivory shoes.  I went for the ivory shoes.

For me diamond white was closer to ivory for me. It might be different for you.

This is me in my dress.

I think it differs for each designer. This might be a crude generalization but usually I’ve seen that in high-end designer brands, ivory to be more more yellowish and what they call white tends to be diamond white. For the more mass produced brands at lower price points, white is usually stark white, and ivory and diamond white are just softer shades of it, sometimes used interchangably.

… and it depends on the type of fabric.  My salon that I bought my dress from had a swatch of diamond white but in a material other than my dress (taffeta).  It looks close to white BUT when I put the swatch she gave me on a diamond white taffeta dress, my taffeta was a bit darker.  I think I am going with white.  However, I am nervous about the veil and pictures.  Pictures always show up a bit differently.
