Why did you go the route you did?
I wanted ivory, but my dress just came from the owner at preowned dresses, and she is beautiful, but white! I didn’t realize that because I was overjoyed at the steal I got for her. I am wearing pearl jewelry, and that seems to do so much better with ivory. What to do?

@Bellagiobride: My dresss will be ivory because like you I am doing pearl accents with everything and my theme is vintage lace. Plus this is my 2nd time around the wedding block…I dont feel comfortable wearing white.

Pearls look good with white, too … do you already have the jewelry? Is it a specific piece that cannot be substituted (i.e. for sentimental reasons), or could you just look for whiter pearls?

Mine is a light ivory because everyone agreed that looked better on me than pure white. I’m half black and half white, if that means anything. I’m also wearing pearls, but I didn’t even think about that when I was deciding.

I went with ivory because white made me look kind of ill. I’m naturally more fair-skinned, and the ivory just looked so much softer on me than the white.
I think pearls still look great with white, though. Rock ’em anyway. 😉

I went for white and loved it. I think you can still make pearls work just fine with white.

Ivory. I tried it on in Ivory and loved the way it looked, so I wasn’t going to change anything. It is a really light ivory though.

I went for something called “diamond white”—it’s in between white and ivory. It suited me well because I’m so pale. But my pearls are white.

I chose ivory because I just hate white in general.

soft white – it’s a little darker than white but not quite ivory.

Mine is Ivory pearl. I personally didn’t even pay attention to the color. I just liked the way it looked on me and the dress was on sale. lol.

I don’t like pure whie in general…ivory is warmer for the eye. So I didn’t need to choose and went with ivory.

White. I don’t like ivory at all, not in regular shirts or pants. I remember hating how all the sample dresses were in ivory!

Mine is ivory b/c the morilee white was so bright on me and didn’t look good….ivory was def a better shoice for me personally! I’ve seen a lot of white dresses look good on others thou!
