Definitely ivory — much more elegant.  White is very stark.  Ivory will look beautiful with everything else you described.

turtle9748:  I would use ivory if you have access to one that is not too yellow.

My wedding was outdoors in August. In June I stopped by and finalized a few things, we were sitting outside on their back patio portion of their restaurant. I asked her for WHITE linens because I had done everything else with white paper, white vases etc… We were also going to be under a white tent. She told me that the ivory table cloths in the sun and outside in bright light, look completely white. We were sitting at a table with an ivory table cloth on it and I had not even noticed it wasn’t “white”. We went with their ivory (we would have had to pay more for white cause they would have to rent them) and I never ntoiced at all, And I highly doubt anyone else did.

We’re doing ivory – I agree with @kmb727 it’s not as stark

My dress is called ‘ivory’ although it seems white… though against a white table cloth maybe it would look dingy
