If you are able to I would get a swatch that matches your dress to take shopping with you. Every company/designer has a different idea on what shade “ivory” is. Some seem to have a yellow base while others have a tan/creamy colored base.

ETA: I’m not sure what “seashell” looks like in person so I don’t know if a white veil would cause too much contrast or not.

I thought for sure that my dress would need a white veil instead of “ivory” since it was just barely off-white, but the ivory veil made SUCH a difference–the white one ended up looking cheap and making my dress look dirty. Not all ivorys are created equal, though, so I’d definitely take your dress along when you go to look at veils. Have you heard of the designer Sara Gabriel? She makes fabulous veils in ivory, diamond white, and true white–absolutely love her work as it’s so fresh and clean!
