I don’t think the ivory would look terrible with those leggings and shoes. The color doesn’t look very dark, more like a light ivory. It looks good on your skin tone.

I’m partial to ivory usually, but I actually like you in the white better! It also seems like you’ll have a lot of color in your wedding (yellow shoes=bold!) so it might be good to stick with white, plus any “leg” shots you do will look SO much better with black and white striped tights if your dress is white. Looking at your epic, I really would think you look better in ivory but side-by-side I like white.

You know better than I do how it looks IRL though!

It’s hard to tell in the pictures.  But, I typically prefer Ivory or some other version of toned-down white.  Bright white just looks harsh to me.  By The Way, I love your shoes!!

I think the white pops in a good way. Both are good colors, though, and I don’t think ivory would clash – go with the color you like best!

@elusivephoto:

I have personally tried on the destiny in diamond white (which is between ivory and white) and thought it was a gorgeous color (it’s actually what made me order another dress in diamond white rather than ivory. Looking at your pictures I think white/diamond white would be beautiful on you! No it does not look cheap or clashes with your skin tone/hair. You look so beautiful in the pic w the finace ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s destiny in diamond white, hope this helpes!

Ivory!!! when it comes to wedding dresses I always choose ivory over white, its softer and looks more modern..

I actually think you look much better in the white! The ivory looks a little muted to me, and the white on you just pops. It looks so clean and fresh. And don’t worry if you do end up getting a white dress in an ivory world. I had the same hesitation after a friend told me that everyone gets an ivory dress nowadays. But when I tried on both, it was absolutely clear that the white was a much better choice for me. Whatever you end up deciding, I’m sure you’ll look great on your wedding day!

Add a poll just for fun, and also you can consider the diamond white as an option ๐Ÿ˜‰

You really can’t go wrong with either color, but I really like the way the white looks with your coloring.

I would normally always say ivory but I like the white one on you.

I agree – normally I’d choose ivory, but somehow the ivory does less for your skintone. You shine in the white!

I don’t think either would look bad on your skin tone at all, I personally prefer white myself, and if you get the ivory I’d skip the leggings
