    My dress is “silk ivory” which is lighter than regular ivory. I ordered my veil in regular ivory and it matches fine. I was afraid of it looking too yellow or cream against my dress, but it wasn’t. Who makes your dress? Mine is a Sottero Midgley if that helps at all!

    My dress was diamond white and I tried it on with both a white and an ivory veil and both my mom and I agreed that the ivory was wayyyyy better. The white just looked too bright when put up directly against the dress.

    They do make diamond white veils. Diamond white is pretty much right in between white and ivory.

    I had an ivory dress, and I think my veil was not quite white.  I would go with style first, and then what you think makes your face look best, since it will be in even more pictures than your dress.  Having white anywhere near my face washes me right out. 

    Honestly, they’re so sheer, that I don’t think it will be too obvious either way.

    I would say it would be best for the veil to be a lighter color than the dress.

    I vote lighter because when a fabric like tulle is layered and bunched together it gives a slighter darker appearance than one thin layer alone would. Although, I honestly think there’s a veil color out there for everyone, you just have to shop around and request samples. Try Etsy!
