I don’t think so, who said decorations should match the bride’s attire? I’m doing Ivory in my decorations but still don’t know which color I’m wearing. It might look odd if you’re trying to match blue and red but white and ivory are similar enough, and again why should the bride and decorations match?

@PJ2009: I really don’t think anyone would notice, or care 🙂  It is awesome that you are putting thought into every decision, but I think this is one you don’t have to worry about!

@PJ2009:  I’m positive I’ll be doing exactly that. I want to keep the winter feel to the decor with the white and I also didn’t feel like blending into the table cloths and chair covers…

I wouldn’t worry about it too much. My linens are white and my dress is ivory with champagne accents. I think it looks better in photos when the bride and decor don’t match. Then you don’t have to worry about her dissappearing into the table in a photo.

I had the same fear when it came to my ivory dress and white linens simply because I didn’t want my dress looking dingy. In the end we went with a different color linen but still had white chairs and honestly, you can’t tell. Ivory on white isn’t as much of a difference as I thought it would be.

The bride is not part of the decor.  this shouldn’t even be a concern.
