I wore an ivory dress for my winter wedding as well.  I was so excited for the snowy pictures….and then it was 80 and sunny all day.  In Missouri.

In my head, an ivory dress against starch white snow looks really beautiful!

Any photographer worth their salt  will be able to photograph as-is. if it isnt yellow in real life then it shouldnt look yellow in the pictures.  but if it DOES  look yellow against the snow,  then maybe your photographer could tweek the pics a bit to lessen the yellow colour?  it CAN be done so dont let them tell you it cant.  

if your dress was pure white,  it could lose a little bit of detail with the snowy background,  so i think you have chosen wisely getting Ivory.

Wow I love the photos. I am getting married in February 2013 and I am hoping for that level of scenic snowiness.

That was a supremely silly remark your friend made. Was she implying that a white dress would somehow “match” the snow where an ivory one wouldn’t?

Snow is a product of nature, it has a rainbow of colors in it and will look different depending on the lighting, time of day, angle, shadow of trees, etc. Any ivory, white, or any other shade dress will look just fine against it. Trust your photographer to know how to handle it.

There was a thread recently by a Bee who had a similar concern about white flowers with an ivory gown, and it’s the same type of thing: flowers, like snow, come in “natural” shades of white and not a pure, stark bleach white – and they will inevitably be a mix of whites, not just one. Trying to match an exact shade is unnecessary, apart from being futile. There are so many other things to worry about with a wedding – this is definitely something I would not add to that list.
