    Oh lord I had a champagne dress with an ivory overlay. My flowers were all shades of white and ivory. White napkins at dinner. And all my stationary was cream. I apparently rock at mixing shades of white! 🙂 I couldn’t care less about matching and I don’t think anyone noticed or even cared!

    I’m with you on that one. I wore a diamond white dress, but the tux shirts were white, and our linens were ivory (but they were super bright). I think it’s really not that big of a deal.

    All “shades” of white look awesome together. I think it brings the pop out of a simple white! I love the mixture of colors

    I think if it is an intentional and balanced mix it will look lovely.  However, IMO if everything is white and there there is one ivory thing sticking out, or vice verse – it looks out of place.

    I can’t imaging even noticing but I think the contrast could look lovely!

    This is a great thread. My dress is ivory, but I am getting white linens at our venue because they are free. It should look okay, right?

    My take is that 1) I can’t be bothered to make sure that everything in the white range matches, and 2) generally, different materials (be it different cloths, cake decorations, flowers, etc.) will reflect and interact with light differently even if they do match.

    @MrsCarnival: You’ll be 100% fine. No one will notice because they’ll have a million other things to be focusing on.

    I mized and matched all over the place.  MY dress was ivory but DH’s tux shirt was white.  Our entire ceremony decor, (huppah drapping, table cloths, runner, flowers) were white.  Except the chair cushions for the ceremony were ivory.  No big deal.

    Then for the reception we had ivory chair cushions and napkins but half the centerpieces were white.  again, it looked amazing and did not clash at all.

    Thanks ladies 🙂 I was a little nervous at first, but I seriously can’t be bothered to match shades of white. Waaaaaay too much work for me lol.
