Beautiful dress! I had the same problem. I had no clue which to go with. I decided to go with diamond white because I’m bit on the paler side and thought the white (in y dress) looked too bright. I still am up in the air bout if i made the right decision.  Its so much easier to match your white ties, shirts, veil, etc.. with a normal white and not diamond. Everything will be a tad off with my diamond white dress because most places only carry white or ivory everything. I think you made a good decision and you look tan enough to pull off a white dress beautifully!

I agree with the others – since you’re so tan, you should stick with the white! Beautiful!!

Was the dress you tried on white or diamond white?  White is a bit stark.  The dress you tried on looks like diamond white to me.

White white is a very stark white. Diamond white is a little softer, but still white. I wore natural white (my dress was silk), which is the equivalent to diamond white. It photgraphed white but was very pretty and soft in person.

I also had a spray tan, for what it’s worth.


ETA: Going with the white will probably be fine, but if you still can I would change it to the diamond white. It’s what you tried on and what you saw in person, what made you decide to go with the white instead?

I’m super pale so I look bad in white, but you however have lovely coloring and can pull it off!

I saw that dress in a magazine and fell in love. It looks so beautiful on you.
