@meowbride:  I’m going to go with a big no on that one. No one would notice.

@meowbride:  That is an old wives tale.Nothing will make your dress look dirty-not white linens, white candles or a white shirt on the groom. In all cases your dress will look ivory.

@meowbride:  The candles would have to be about five feet wide for anyone to notice a color difference. Don’t sweat it. White candles will be a-okay.

Originally my linen colors were ivory.. and my dress is stark freaking white – the whitest white ive ever seen in my life!

Everyone on the bee told me that it wouldn’t matter, but it drove me INSANE. Even my mom made a comment that it might look strange with me sitting at an ivory table.

We switched our colors from ivory to white, and I feel so much better about it. I’m a bit of a profectionist, so if I didn’t change it, it’s all I was going to think about.

I do notice the differances between ivory and white, maybe most people wouldn’t. But then again, there are also differant shades of ivory, the one we had used for our linens was a very dark ivory, my dress made it look almost yellow.
