There are many things to consider when shopping for a wedding dress – fit, style, accents and one of the most important, color! There are various shades of white to choose from, including two of the most popular, white and ivory.Choosing your wedding dress color and shade of white is always about what best compliments your skin tone. If you have a light skin tone or cool undertones, a bright white gown will likely cause you to appear washed out. Choose a true white dress if you have golden, warm or darker skin tones.

Ivory is warmer in tone, so it compliments lighter skin beautifully, in addition to women with golden or darker skin tones. After choosing your wedding gown, be sure to choose the right accessories to match your shade of wedding fabric.
