Hi ladies…my skin turns pretty bronzey/tan in the summer, so I’ve been told that ivory will compliment my skin tone better than white. And I’ve also been told that you can’t tell the difference between ivory and white. This could all be true…BUT, in every store that I’ve been to, the ivory looks so much yellower to me than I imagine my dress to be. I just personally prefer white-white. Anyway, did any of you brides go against the norm by purchasing a white dress for your warm/tan skin? If so, can I see pictures??

@sweetheart05: I was pretty tan compared to how white I normally am…hahah. I chose a white dress. 🙂
In some pictures, my tan is washed out due to the rainy weather but I promise I was pretty tan.

I am pretty tan and I think a diamond white looks much better on me than a creamier ivory… But I think it does also depends on if you have more of an olive based skin tone, and your hair colour…

My skin is a little tan naturally. Here is me in my dress, not the best pictures…I was actually liking how I looked in my dress till I saw it on camera.

@sweetheart05: I’m armenian so I have a lighter olive skin tone, dark hair, dark eyes. I wore white and it looked just fine with my skin tone. I don’t have any pics right now since I’m out of town but I think white will look good on tan skin!

Here’s a comparison of me with a tan (for me at least) in my dress (the top) which is Ivory and me in the bottom which is white
