I don’t know what the difference would be in person, since they photograph so similarly.  But if you love the color you tried it on in, I’d say go for that one!

I have a Maggie in light gold and *LOVE* it. I like the way the color looks against my skin, I don’t look washed out. However, I think the color depends on what will work on your skin tone and with your wedding colors best. The white is pretty stark white, the diamond white is just a little bit of a softer white, a cross between ivory/white. We always used to joke it was the ivory dress that you could wear but still tell Grandma it’s white 😉

I agree with KansasPriness11 – whichever looks best with your skin tone and goes well with your color scheme is what you should choose.  If you like the gold best, then go for gold! Laughing

I saw order the dress in the color you tried on, especially if you loved it! I tried on an ivory dress and thought I have to have a white wedding dress. My consultant pulled a dress in the same material as the dress I was wearing, but in white and the color totally flushed me out. The ivory was perfect for my skin tone and I wouldn’t have known the difference unless I sat up against something white white.

My dress is shown on the Maggie Sottero website in light gold and it looks gorgeous.  However, when I saw it in person, it looked yellow and dirty to me (or antique-y, as if it had been sitting in a trunk for a hundred years).  Some may like that look/color but it was not for me.  I saw a different dress in white and also in diamond white.  The white was stark white, almost blinding, while the diamond white was a little softer and seemed more wearable.  Hope that helps!
