I tried this dress on in ivory, but unfortunately I don’t have any pictures.  It was very beautiful, though!  If your skin looks best in the champagne dress, I definitely wouldn’t go with pure white because it will make you look sallow.  The ivory would probably be a good compromise, but not if you don’t think you’re going to like it…that’s a hard dilemma and I hope you’re happy with whatever you decide!

I think you need to tell him that white washes people out like none other. It’s a really hard color to pull off, especially diamond white- that’s practically blinding! Maybe you could try on a shirt the same color and make him pay attention to your skin.

KMSull, diamond white is more like ivory — it’s a soft, off-white, not a blinding white.  That’s what my dress was, and I definitely can’t wear white!!  Just didn’t want anyone to be confused 🙂

@bb – the dress in the picture that is the one you fell in love with or is that the all-antique gold? All I know is that maggie’s colours are all very close together – they have soft subtle differences. 

Can you post a pic just so we can see the colour?

He may not even notice that it isn’t white white -it is still a shade of white!

CONGRATS on finding the one!

I honestly doubt he’d even notice that it’s not technically “white” – I know my Fiance would never know the difference!!

I would get the one that looks the most flattering on you. I don’t think any man could argue about the color of the dress when he sees the woman of his dreams in it, y’know? You’re going to walk down the aisle and look phenominal, and he’ll be so amazed by how gorgeous you are that the last thing he’ll think about is the color of the dress. At least that’s what I think. 🙂

Good luck with your dress! 🙂

I have a friend with a goldeny skin tone who just got married last weekend and wore the Vogue Royale in diamond white. You could NOT tell that it wasn’t white. In fact, she even wore my very sheer white veil with her dress and it looked fine. I think you’ll be ok! =) Good luck!

Like others have said, I don’t think most guys would know a difference between true white vs. diamond white/ivory/light champagne… I think only us brides really get the difference between all these.  I think to most average guys any of these would be a “white” wedding dress.  Unless your Fiance really knows his colors and truly meant he wants to see you in a “white-white” dress I think you’re perfectly safe to go with what you think looks best against your skin tone.

I agree with PPs. I don’t think he will even notice that it’s not a stark white. Unless someone else stands beside you in a WHITE white dress, and I’m pretty sure you won’t have to worry about that happening! Smile

My dress is diamond white, and to me it looked WHITE white. Until the saleswoman held up a real white one next to me, and then mine didn’t look nearly as bright.

My daughter’s gown was Diamond White and champagne and also came in white on white. Biggest difference to us was how it photographed. Details are much more pronounced with some off shades of color. My neice’s gown was gorgeous,but in her wedding pictures she was completely disappointed the photographer was unable to capture all the detail…it was lost on the white.

I think your dress is beautiful,and agree he won’t notice it isn’t bright white. Get the one that makes you look and feel the best!

I doubt he’ll notice and I wouldn’t mention it! Wear what you want.
