    If you’ve dreamed of a traditional white or off-white dress, I’d say go for it! 

    Also, you can find some lightweight boleros online. 

    I think the most important thing here is for you to go and try on dresses and jackets. Once you’ve ruled out some options, you’ll be able to narrow down exactly what you want. Maybe the picture below is the best of both worlds…?

    It sounds like you don’t really want a non-traditional color, so I would say that option is out.  Now, between the ivory, champagne, and cream, you’ll have to try stuff on.  One person’s cream is another’s mocha is another’s antique white.  As a fellow pale face (so pale I’m practically transluscent), I chose to go non-traditional, but my favorite colors are blue and grey so it was only natural for me to find a blue/grey dress.  In my pinterest dress board, you can see both the dress I chose on my skin, as well as several other dresses in varying shades of champagne and ivory.

    Firstly that is a beautiful dress. I have to say I am an incredibly pale person and ivory looked fine with my skin colour so I’m sure you will look lovely. Also I think you would regret a knitted bolero not only because of the heat but with the style of dress being so glamorous it may be a bit mismatched. I would get your dress first then try different styles with it. I have to ask have you tried the dress on? Because if not you really should because you may not like it on, I ended up going for a completely different style than I intended. You may like a dress with sheer sleeves or could get a dress maker to put sheer chiffon sleeves on that dress. Hope I helped. Good luck.
