@Sunnybrook:  Mine was ivory and we had white linens. Honestly no one will care. No one will point it out. Plus makes you stand out more (:

@pinkzebra:  +1  My sister had an ivory dress and there were white linens on the tables. I don’t think anybody even thought about it. It was a beautiful wedding.

Your dress will look beautiful and it will look ivory. I think it will look great with the burlap.

I didn’t even know this was an issue.  It’s certainly not something I’d ever notice.  

I only notice if things like the veil or crinoline don’t match well with the dress fabric.  But never linens.

We’re having a fairly “white” ceremony, white tulle, white papel picado, white chairs etc.  I’ll be in ivory.  I’m not too worried about it.  I think it will look beautiful.

@Sunnybrook:  That’s the right attitude!!

And, if anyone freaks out because your dress isn’t the exact shade of white as the table linens, you can add them to the BBQ sauce theme!

I think no one will notice, but if it were me and I got super neurotic about it, I might try and incorporate some ivory into the decor as well, like with ivory table toppers or ivory flowers in white vases or something.

I like the idea that you’ll stand out instead of blending in with your chair and table linens if you wore a white dress.
