Wedding dress whites: Which white are you?
You probably had no idea how many shades of white there are until you started wedding dress shopping!
Wedding dress designers and manufacturers offer many different shades of white, including pure white (the whitest white), silk white, diamond white, off white, light ivory, ivory, cream, champagne, and the list goes on.
Once you settle on a wedding dress and place your order, it’s a good idea to ask for a fabric swatch so that you can take that with you when choosing your bridal accessories.
The bridal accessories that will need to be coordinated with your dress are your veil, hair piece and shoes, and perhaps a bridal clutch bag. Having a fabric swatch will also be helpful when coordinating the outfits for your bridal party.
How to choose the shade of white that suits you:
The two things to consider are your skin tone and hair colour.
If you have very pale skin, you should avoid very white dresses. A warmer shade such as ivory or champagne is a better choice for you. Pure white dresses looks great with olive or slightly darker skin.
Your hair colour is also a factor. For blonde or red hair, ivory or champagne is the best choice.
If you have dark hair, then white or pale ivory dresses looks great.
Many girls also find the idea of wearing a stark white dress quite daunting, especially if they never wear white. Try on several dresses in different shades to decide which colour looks best on you.
