I have dark hair and a medium tone to my skin. I loved ivory dresses with my skin and hair tones. But honestly, you’ll never know until you try one on which you prefer. Also I thought for sure I wanted a detailed lace dress. But for me, they were uncomfortable, and while some were flattering I always seemed to have that “I like it, but….” feeling going on. Make sure to take pictures. For some reason the dress can translate 100 percent different in a photo than in the mirror. 

It’s really trial and error in my opinion.

But good luck, I hope you find a really great dress! And make sure you have fun!

I knew I didn’t want satin as I knew the shine wouldn’t suit me, I’m of similar colouring to you;

I liked taffetta, though this does have a slight shine to it too. I thought I may go with a lace dress, which it did look nice but a bit plain. My dress is silk and in light ivory, it’s so dreamy. I recommend trying some on if you can to see what the fabrics are like against your skin if nothing else.
