White Wedding Dresses

So, let’s talk about White Wedding dresses…Of course that’s the dress you dream of from being a little girl because that’s the colour all brides are supposed to wear, right?

Wrong! Now although there are the odd few dresses available in bright white most bridal gowns on the market are not actually available in White and instead only come in ‘Ivory’. Now, to the naked eye most dresses (especially on photos) will all appear the same white tone but in person there are considerably different…

Why do they not make White dresses?

True White dresses have a very cool base and instead of complimenting your skin they are likely to wash most skin tones out and who doesn’t want to glow on their wedding day?!

Ivory is still a bright white colour but is much softer on skin as it does not have the blue tones. It also helps ensure beading and applique on the dresses blend together to sparkle perfectly In the light.

What is the difference between ‘White’ and ‘Ivory’?

Ivory is known as the most ‘universally flattering’ version of white. It is a ‘shade’ of white instead of white in its purest shade that can be cold and very harsh.

Is Ivory the same as Cream?

No, although ivory is a shade of white containing yellow hues it is still a bright shade and to the naked eye will appear ‘White’ unlike cream which has definite yellow tones that make it darker.
