    I think it depends on the blush. My dress photographs blush in some lights and ivory in others, so it doesn’t bother me that it doesn’t look white 100% of the time. Do you think you will regret not wearing white? The divina on the model (in blush) looks pretty pink, but my dress also looks gold on the model (which it definitely isn’t) so its tough to tell if that is really how it will look.

    ETA: I can post pictures of the color of my dress, but I’m not sure if it would be helpful because the materials are different.

    If you really want to do the belt I would do a white or ivory dress. The blush or pink dress to at a color belt may take away from the color that’s already in your wedding dress..

    Ivory — especially if you want a belt.  I think the belt will “pop” better with the ivory.  That being said, the blush is an absolutely beautiful color, I just don’t know if I could personally wear blush on my wedding day (and, I’m a huge pink fan!).  I’m always in awe of the girls that do.

    I think blush gives the dress an incredible wow factor that ivory wouldn’t. But, ivory is more traditional.

    I wore white gold jewelry with my ivory wedding dress and it looked great. I can see why you like the blush, but with your color scheme I really do think ivory is going to look better with everything else. And the other bees are right that the belt will pop more with the ivory.

    i think ivory with silver coloured accents is just fine.

    if your bm dresses are cornflower blue, i’d stick with an ivory dress.  the light blue and the blush together is too baby showerish.  when you add in the grey tuxes, too much going on. 

    stick with a neutral.

    i love the blush in this dress but only if everyone else was going to be in neutral blacks or charcoals.

    I think ivory with cornflower blue, grey and silver accents sounds beautiful. Blush and cornflower blue might look a little..cheap..

    yeah, I guess you’re right! I was thinking that blush would look great with blue and grey… I would definitely go for the IVORY in this case, unless she changes the bridesmaids color to a light grey?

    Silver and crystals look beautiful with ivory. I used to wear gold jewelry and now I wear all white gold and silver.

    Yellow gold is back in style in fashion this fall.

    I personally think the crystals look better in silver.
