Ivory! For me, it’s more bridal. the other color just felt it could be a prom dress…

The first photos are better. The bottom one is grey-ish and a bit lilac- it’s cool but it will date. I just think you only just married once so be the bride in as white a shade as possible! By the way, it’s a seriously stylish and different dress; you must have it!

Beauuutiful dress! I think the Ivory will be gorgeous on your skintone!!! But, they are honestly so similar that they could look different depending on the lighting at the venue.

Ivory for me.  I love going non-traditional, but the alabaster looks a little dull to me, the ivory is more “brightening”.

It does depend on a lot, though – your venue and the available lighting, the time of day for natural light, your skin tone and your overall wedding color theme.  If you’re going for the boho-natural look that is really in right now, with a lot of soft neutrals, and your bridesmaids are in light or neutral dresses, then alabaster might work if you are looking to fit in with your theme, while ivory would work better if you want to stand out from it.

I would never usually choose ivory over silvery colours, but in this case the ivory just looks gorgeous and more bridal. I don’t like the sickly purply tone of the alabaster and it lacks the beauty and sophistication of the ivory. This is already a slightly ‘out there’ dress (truly amazing though), so just keep the colour traditional.
