Honestly, I don’t think that your guests will even be able to tell. I am using white candles, my dress is ivory, and I didn’t even consider the color of my dress when I bought the pillar candles. 

I found that a lot of the bulk candle dealers online charge extra for ivory vs white, as ivory was considered a colored candle… if that makes a difference. I got mine at Pier 1, where the colors didn’t make a difference in price 🙂

What color are the tablecloths?  Are they white or ivory, with blue accents?

I work around candles at my job (package and ship them out) and I think Ivory is the best for a wedding. Which is great but it’s almost “too white” if that makes sence where Ivory is warmer and softer…hope that helps! 🙂

I ended up getting ivory floating candles at hobby lobby (50% off), but debated for a long time. I felt like the ivory was too yellow and would stand out. In the end I decided they weren’t as yellow as I thought compared to how bright the white was.

I actually wanted peralized white but they were too expensive to order and the store I orginally purchased from was out. Maybe try them if you can’t decide between the white and ivory? They are such a nice color. Also, I’m not sure what size your looking for (mine were 3″) but some sizes are hard to find the ivory.

I’m partial to ivory.  I find white white just a little too stark.

I think ivory will look softer.  Also it will match your dress.  But white will look crisp and clean.  What look are you going for?

I agree with the others, ivory would be nice. Although I don’t think the guests would noitice either way.

I would go with Ivory – I just like the look of ivory candles over white ones – but that is strictly a personal preferance!  We have ivory candles, ivory tableclothes, and my dress is champagne.  No one will see our candles though.
