I always thought I’d need ivory since I’m so white and freckled but after trying on ivory and white, the ivory washed me out and the white made me look like I had some color. I think it’s on individual basis because some people have different skin undertones.

I don’t know I would just try it on and see!  I am latina and have an olive complexion but I was surprised at how good the white looked.  However the dress I loved ended up being champagne colored so I just went with that!  Good luck!

I always thought I would want white but I had enough peach in my skin tone that it just made me look washed out.

I don’t think there’s a set rule to know for sure…you just have to try the different colors.  Especially since there are so many different versions of white and ivory between dress designers.  I found that I looked good in both white and ivory, and the dress I ended up with I would say is kind of like an off-white.

I agree with Tulip that you just have to try. If your dress doesn’t come in ivory but you love it, I say get it in white! I thought I only wanted white but I fell in love with my dress and it only came in ivory, and I’m very happy with it!
