Hi Sarah,

I personally prefer white, alhtough Ivory seems to be a bit softer in photo's ... there's something so romantic about a gorgeous white bridal gown! I think it also depends on your colour scheme ... if you're having white with other colours then a white dress will fit perfectly ... and vice versa!

Ivory is a shade of white, just like cobalt is a shade of blue. So if you are buying an ivory dress, it still is a white dress. Personally, I went with Ivory because it complimented my skin tone better, and had a more vintage feel. Once you see them in person, go with what looks better on you.

Go with the color that best compliments your skin tone. I tried on white gowns and they did nothing for me. When I put the Ivory gowns they looked so much better.

I agree to go with what you feel looks best on you once you see them in person. I chose ivory because to me it is just a much softer look and less of a stark contrast against other colors.

I had this issue last week when I bought my dress. I was told that Ivory is more classic, more traditional, very regal, looks better with my skin tone (I'm tan so even white looks good)...I could go on. In my personal opinion, I like the crisp clean look of white, I've always considered Ivory to be a dingy white. My FH's tux shirt is white white, and if I got an Ivory dress... I just know that it would bother me, not only on our wedding day but in our wedding pictures that my dress wasn't as white as his shirt(I'm odd like that). So naturally I went with white and I'm happy that I did, even though the salesperson told me that white makes wedding dresses look cheap. Eh, to each their own. Go with what you like, not what others like :)

I actually went with a champagne dress. I still feel like it's a white wedding dress. I just felt like the dress looked better in that color. I could have gone with any shade with my skin tone but the dress showed better in the champagne, at least in my opinion.

SO I think it depends on (1) your skin tone and (2) what the dress looks like.
