what did you choose? I tried on ivory in the store and found it to be a bit “yellow” for my taste. Actually, all the dresses I tried on were labeled as “ivory” but varied in degree of darkness and yellowness so I don’t exactly know how “white” wedding dresses look on my skin. Some people say that white doesn’t photograph well, but I wear white clothing on a regular basis and find that it looks just fine. Is it not the same?
My complexion is medium: Jada Pinkett or Zoe Saldana or Janet Jackson.
Anybody have pics of an ivory dress that basically was light enough that people didn’t notice it wasn’t white?

I have a friend who’s the same coloring as you and pure white looks AMAZING on her.
You could also look for “diamond white”, which is more muted but still definitely white.

I’m East Indian and assumed I’d end up with an ivory gown but I tried on a champagne dress and the color looked amazing on me. I ended up ordering the gown I purchased in champagne. It looks a little pinkish when held up against a white/diamond white/ivory gown, but alone it still looks “white” as you can see in the stock photos of the dress which are in the champagne color.

I’m Indian and have a complexion very slightly darker than what you described, and I was thinking of going with an ivory gown. TBH I haven’t tried any on, but I think the ivory would be less of a stark contrast and I feel like a white dress would stand out a bit too much and people would be staring at the dress more than they would be staring at me.

@akirasan: I think ya’ll should check out diamond white as an option! I am milk chocolate tone, around Gabrielle Union’s color. Ivory was too “buttery” on my skin, and I think my red undertones would’ve clashed with the blue undertones of a pure white. I think Diamond White will be perfect for ya’ll!
