I think fair skinned brides look lovely in ivory. My Future Sister-In-Law is extremely fair skinned so she opted for ivory and it looked fabulous on her. I say go for the ivory over the white since you’re having a winter wedding. It’ll add some warmth to your overall look!

My friend has the same complexion as you and wore ivory on her big day. She looked stunning.

That dress is very beautiful!  If that one doesn’t come in ivory, I’m certain you can find the same kind by a different designer who makes it!

@FutureMrsSarah:  I think fair-skinned women look better in ivory because the bridal white washes a lot of people out. I think women with a more tan or olive skin tone look better in white. πŸ™‚ I would definitely go for ivory!

I would for sure go with ivory. It’s much more flattering on us fair skinned ladies! Most dressmakers will allow you to purchase in both.

I agree with all the others – fair-skinned women look much better in ivory than diamond white. I actually wore an ivory/champagne dress (champagne silk slip, with an ivory lace overlay) on our wedding day and it made me look wayyy tanner than I actually am haha.

Another vote for ivory. I think it’s the most flattering color for the majority of girls.

I don’t care what color someone’s skin in… I love pure white for wedding dresses.

I’m fair skinned like you are, and I tried on both colours to see what worked best, and hands down, Ivory won. When I tried on the white, 2 of the bridal consultants at the store (who weren’t helping me find a dress) stopped and asked if I wasn’t feeling well because white made me look ill.

surely it depends on the look youre trying to get. If you want to pull off the English rose look, white will work but you have to do the whole look
