First, gorgeous dress! I would go with the ivory personally because the white in Essense dresses is WHITE! I also had an Essense dress and had the options of white or off-white. The dress I tried on was off-white but I thought I wanted white. The shop I went to didn’t have my dress in white but another Essense dress and my goodness, it was blinding. But I will also add that different shades of white don’t bother me. I think your ivory dress will look like an ivory dress next to his uniform, not a dirty dress, and it will be beautiful. Just my two cents.

Go with ivory girl!! I’ve seen plenty of wedding pictures of marines in uniform and their wives and although it doesn’t totally match it still looks really good!! My fiance is a marine too 🙂

I would go with ivory.  My husband actually wore a white shirt with  ivory tie and the contrast with the ivory dress looked great.  You likely wont be able to tell the difference in the pics anyway!

Ivory! It’s what you love and you’re the bride! If you want ivory, then you get ivory-no matter what your man is wearing.

I vote Ivory! I guarantee no one will notice the ivory clashing with his pants. In pictures, ivory often looks white anyway. Plus, I love the contrast with the ivory sash!

If you are set on the white dress, can you order it without the white sash & then have a seamstress sew an ivory sash on?

I say Ivory as well. Because the fabric is shiny and has such a smooth texture it will read as brighter in photos and real life. If he were wearing satin pants that might be a different story but (thankfully) he isn’t!

It’s a beautiful dress you reall can’t go wrong.

I SAY WHITE! I did try this on in white and LOVED it. And I disagree, against the white pants I think it will be noticable.  I was very picky about that when ordering my dress (ivory dress and my Fiance wearing white shirt) and the girl at the dress shop held up an ivory dress against a white shirt and to me it was noticeable.  In pictures yes you may not notice it as much but you cant tell.

Go with white, if you are thinking about it now you will be sorry you got it in ivory!

The determining factor should be which looks best on your skin tone. Since you’re a warm skin tone, I suggest ivory. It looks beautiful on you.
