Which white will work for my skin tone?

With more than 200 shades of white to choose from, the only way to know which one looks best on you is trial and error. Contrary to popular belief, few wedding dresses come in pure white―which is a good thing, because pure white washes out all but the richest and deepest skin tones. Most women will end up with a gown in the ivory family that flatters their skin tone. Keep these suggestions in mind:

  • If you’re fair-skinned, look for ivory shades containing yellow undertones.
  • If you have a pinker complexion, choose creamy undertones.
  • If you have olive, yellow-based, or dark skin, select champagne or off-white shades.

When you think you’ve found the right shade for you, confirm with the salesperson that the color of the sample gown you tried on hasn’t been altered by wear and tear.
