    I’d go with what looks best with your skin tone. I definitely look more alive, vibrant, and healthy when I wear ivory vs white.

    @soupydoopy:  Totally depends on your skin tone. Do you have a photo of yourself?

    White looks absolutely horrible on me and washes me out. I opted for a pearl ivory which was almost a light champagne.

    @soupydoopy:  I’d go with ivory- I perfer almost all wedding dresses in ivory over white.

    Definitely go with what will compliment your skin tone. I tend to think ivory looks better on pale skin. Bright white looks lovely contrasting against darker or olive tones.

    Another vote for ivory – I think it almost always looks less stark when it comes to wedding dresses.

    If he’s getting married in his dress blues I would do white…

    GORGEOUS Dress.

    And I LOVE the idea of a Blue Sash to match your Hubby-2B’s “Dress Blues”… AWESOME idea

    I agree with the other Bees… you need to check out whether your complexion looks best with White or Ivory … find fabrics in both and drape them around you, over your shoulders, to get a good idea when you look in a mirror

    (Lol, there was a Bride on here the other day who said she was currently wrapped in the Bedsheets / Curtains, and she could clearly see the difference, and soooo glad she did the experiment)

    Altho… Blue & Stark White are a classic combo.

    As for the Balsa Wood Flowers… they’ll no doubt look good with either.

    Plenty of Brides for example opt for Champagne / Candlelight Roses (sort of an off-white creamy ivory colour) and they look great against any Wedding Gown

    Lace in ivory looks much richer than lace in white! Go ivory! Especially with fair skin

    If you are fair you definitely are going to want ivory

    Yes, if u are fair complected, ivory will be ur best option, almost ur only option. If u r tan or dark complected, ANY color will work for u, and white makes a bouquet and bridesmaid dresses POP. 

    If u r liking ivory, my advice is to get ivory and do not to hold it next to a white gown or it will forever look dingy in ur mind, or at least it did for me.
