My dress is “diamond white” which I found out is “off white”. Our bridesmaid dresses & tuxes are navy. What should I do for the flower girls? I put a white dress up to mine and it made mine look dirty. I’ve been saying our wedding is a “navy/white” wedding but it clearly isn’t white. Before I found out this weekend my dress was off white I was going to use silver glitter or silver as accent color. Is that going to look right? HELP! PS I love sparkle/glitter

My dress is offwhite AND silver accents so it shold look great! Just make sure your flower girl dresses are not stark white. Mot people say their colors are -/white simply because it is easier to explain than ivory or diamond white 🙂

No white dress is true white, really. Diamond white is still pretty close to white and not as off-white as, say, ivory. Can you show us a photo of your dress, even if it’s a stock photo?
You say you held it up to other white dresses, but the main thing I would check is how it looks compared to the tux shirts. Maybe take your groom’s shirt with you to a fitting? Regardless, I don’t think anyone will notice if everything’s not exactly the same shade of white, and I’ve only really seen silver accents with “diamond white” dresses. For the flower girls, if having the same shade as your dress is important, you could look into dresses by the same designer or order scrap fabric from the designer to have a tailor make their dresses or use that scrap to match other dresses. Or just use another color altogether…I think a gentle gray or a peony shade of pink look great with navy and white, personally.
Here’s my “diamond white” Casablanca dress with silver accents:

Thanks ladies!! Here’s a picture. The white flower girl dress is in the left corner. Sorry it’s sideways. No idea why!
