    No. That will look really weird. : (0 votes)
    Why are you limiting yourself to white or ivory? I'd try a color. : (1 votes)

    The white to ivory thing wouldn’t matter one little bit IMO.  In fact, it’s kind of like getting the best of both worlds and getting to wear both traditional wedding colours ๐Ÿ™‚

    Honestly, most people don’t even notice if a dress is ivory or white unless the two dresses are right next to each other.

    I agree with  @EvaBostonTerrier:.  No one will notice, so do whatever feels comfy.  You may find though that once the reception is happening… that you don’t want to change ๐Ÿ™‚  It’s happened to brides I’ve worked with that really loved their gowns.  They just go for it ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Good luck!

    My wedding dress is ivory and reception dress is white. I’m just bringing a change of shoes for the shorter dress. I really didn’t even give it a thought and I’m sure many of your guests won’t notice.

    its not like  you’re wearing them at the same time! It will be fine, as long as you are happy with them both that’s all that matters! ๐Ÿ™‚

    What about a bridesmaids dress?  David’s Bridal would probably have something in your price range and in ivory.  Plus you would not have to wait for it to come in.

    I guess it depends on the time of day, but if you change from ivory to white, i doubt one person will notice the color change. If it’s white and sparkly, it’ll be perfect for an evening dance reception. I saw someone else say something about getting a David’s Bridal bridesmaid dress. They come in ivory and they really aren’t expensive. Good luck!
