My dress is ivory and the veil I fell in love with is light ivory. Will they look alright? I don’t really know the difference between the two!
I’ve included pictures of my dress and the veil I like.

There probably is no difference at all. Or at least, no difference that anyone but you will notice.
Ivory tends to have the slightest yellow tinge, making it a “warm” shade, where diamond white or pure white is definitely a “cool” shade.

I am curious to see what it looks like.

I got a veil that was a little lighter than my dress and was told that I should do it that way…I think it will look fine!

It really depends on the designer. You won’t know until they are side by side. I was worried my veil would be too white because it was a lighter Ivory than my dress but it worked out fine. I just hate the look of a bride in a creamy ivory dress with a stark white veil.

From the pictures that you posted, I think they would look good together.

My dress is ivory, I bought a light ivory veil and it’s perfect! The ivory veil looked a bit too ‘warm’ to me.
I think your dress and veil will look beautiful!

In my opinion veils should always be lighter, they look so stunning against the dresses! My dress is nude/champagne with an ivory overlay and my veil is a light ivory color for this reason.
A few photos to show you what I mean (and remember that the color difference will be much more subtle with your ivory dress and light ivory veil):
See how these dresses would look a bit odd with veils the exact same color (might not be true in your case since ivory is so light anyway) or if the veils were darker?

Wow that is so helpful! I have a really weird color wedding dress. It is darker than ivory but not quite champagne. It’s called alabaster ivory so I’ve been stressing over a veil color as well! Thanks for the post!
