    @NurseMandie:  I have been told (and I DID see one-think it was the Pronovias Finisterre) that pure white dresses look cheap and it’s true that the pure white lace dress I saw did look cheaper than an off-white or ivory one.

    My dress (lace) was also off-white.

    P/S: Also heard that pure white does not look good on Caucasian skin

    My dress is Allure, and it’s a champagne underlady with an ivory lace overlay.

    My dress store recommended ivory, too, as they said it would look better against my skin tone (I am very pale). White can look harsh against pale skin, apparently. But the dress looks white in pictures.

    My lace dress is labeled as off-white and looks like a very light ivory

    I bought my dress from a local family business rather than a designer boutique, so they didn’t have all the color options you ladies have. But my lace dress looks pretty white to me… And I don’t think it looks “cheap.” In fact, I fell in love with it because it looked so angelic and bright. (Keep in mind the alterations aren’t done – it will be lengthened and fit better – and that the pictures are not the highest of quality.)

    Mine is ivory over light gold. So it has almost a champagne look. So pretty.

    I have been told that in pure white the lace detail doesn’t stand out as much and just looks blah. All the lace dresses I saw we’re ivory too and that’s what the sales lady said about it.

    My dress is champagne with ivory. IMO it makes it look more vintage.

    I chose Ivory.  Although there was a Champagne option, which I thought I would go for.  I tended to like the warmer toned, off white dresses when I was shopping.  The champagne version of my dress was pretty.  It was very gold with ivory lace overlay.  I just thought it was too drastic and I might regret it in the future.  I think it’s best to veer away from passing trends (e.g. pink gowns) and stick with the clasics.

     

    This is the dress I ordered in Ivory:
