When it comes to wedding dresses there are so many shades of white you can almost end up snow blind! Maybe you already know you’re a champagne kind of girl or that blush is a great colour for your skin tone. But, if you’re just not sure, then ivory wedding dresses are the perfect place to start. With its natural, warm undertones – like an eggshell – ivory is super flattering for all skin tones and is the classic bridal shade.
It’s also a versatile choice that suits all wedding day themes, from soft romantic, bohemian chic to a sparkling princess fairy tale. Our style experts have put together a quick guide to their favourite ivory wedding dresses to help you decide…
A fairy tale shade
Carrie is ivory in all it’s princess-worthy perfection. There’s a stunning sweetheart bodice and a skirt made from swathes of ivory tulle. Both are embellished with luxurious lace that spills beautifully down the floor-length skirt.
Turn round to reveal the lace-up back, which pulls in the bodice to give perfect waist definition. Why not add a gorgeous sparkling belt to accentuate the waist a little more? This style also looks great with one of our off-the-shoulder lace jackets. Wear one during the day then reveal your sexy strapless look for the evening do!
Ivory suits every style of gown and we love the glamour of this elegant fishtail. The embroidered floral lace adds a super feminine touch, especially when combined with the stylish sweetheart neckline.
The dramatic cut here is perfect for brides who want some serious wow-factor as they walk down the aisle, and the row of delicate button are the perfect finishing touch. Simply pair it with a cathedral length veil for extra drama!
If you’d prefer a gown with straps there aren’t many that are more elegant than this understated mermaid design. The delicate illusion lace straps are a key feature and are beautifully embellished with ivory lace.
Create some curves
A mermaid silhouette that flares out gently from the knee will highlight a curvy figure or add curves where there are none, making it one of the best shapes for hourglass figures. Just make sure you choose your underwear carefully to avoid any lines!
Comfort and style
And finally, here’s one more fabulously curve-enhancing style. This elegant lace fishtail will give you the perfect hourglass silhouette. It’s overlaid from top to toe in beautiful ivory lace and the wide ivory straps offer comfort, coverage and style all rolled into one!
At the back the elegant row of covered buttons will accentuate your fabulous shape, before flaring out into a sumptuous train. Pair this classic style with a cathedral-length veil with complementary lace edging for a truly show-stopping look.
