I found a Casablanca dress that I absolutely love but I tried it on in Ivory and I want to order it in Diamond White. The lady the boutique said with my fair skin and red hair I should definitely where an ivory dress. I am by colors being blue and white (we’re big penn state fans). Can any other brides out there offer advice on white dress on fair skin? How white is casablanca on diamond white? How much will ivory clash with the rest of the blue and white in my wedding?

I am a redhead doing diamond white! although, my diamond white really looks ivory- my sister and I couldnt tell the difference… I say go with the diamond white! Unless the lady in the store was a redhead herself, then she doesnt know what its like 😉

I hate when people try to tell me what NOT to wear bc of my hair…if you want it in white, get it in white! Frankly, some store ladies still believe in the old wives tales in regards to redheads…she probably thinks we shouldn’t wear pink either 🙂
My dress is technically an “ivory” but whatever color it’s called…it looks white to me (it’s not a deep ivory, if that makes any sense).
If I were you, I’d ask to see color swatches or dresses in the store in each shade- ivory, white and diamond white and bring something white to hold against it- such as a white ribbon or if you have something from your wedding that is white- and compare.

I’m also a redhead that did diamond white! It looked great on my pale skin. 🙂

I am a redhead and I chose ivory, however, but I think some can totally pull off diamond white. Try on both and see what you like better.

sorry for the “however” – that’s what happens when you walk away from the computer and then continue writing once you return without reading what you already wrote!

I’m a redhead and went with ivory because true whites make me look washed out, but some fair skinned ladies can pull off true white – if you are one of them, then go for it! 😉

I am considered strawberry, and I am wearing white. Everyone that has seen me in it loves the color and gown on me, and some of them originally told me that with my coloring white would look horrible on me. Try both colors on and see what you like better. It really depends on the cut/style of the gown and your figure type as to which one will look best on you.

Take a picture of yourself in all the colors. I am a redhead with fair skin. I took pictures in all the dresses I tried on. Thank goodness the stores around here let you. I found that I was very washed out in white. I also found out that my favorite dress made me square in photos. I did try on several different whites including diamond white. I will only wear ivory after seeing all the photos, and I am hoping a spray tan will help a bit.

I’m strawberry blonde and went for an “oyster” which is kind of ivory, I guess… but that choice was motivated by my inability to tan rather than my hair color 🙂

I’m a redhead, and I went with ivory. White made me look very washed out, but I agree with @tksjewelry: take pictures of yourself in it (if you can) and see what comes out best in the photos.
