How to choose a shade of white for a wedding dress

Date: Mar 20, 2020

When choosing a wedding dress, you need to consider your size, morphology and, of course, your style, but not only! The white color of the wedding dress should match the color of the skin.

50 shades of white

There are over a dozen shades of white. From the purest white to the darkest shades: snow-white, milky, opal, ivory, pearl, cream, ecru, alabaster, amiant and champagne.

White for fair skin

If you have white or pale skin, avoid pure white, which can overshadow the natural whiteness of your skin. Better choose ecru, the pale gray-yellow color of unbleached flax. It can be either pure ecru or with a golden hue. Ivory, a yellowish white ivory, is also suitable for fair skin. It will emphasize its whiteness and you will be able to avoid the competition of two identical shades of white. So your skin will look even brighter.

White for tanned skin

With tanned skin, sharp contrasts are best avoided. Ivory will do. A pure white dress or even with a slight shade can create a cutting contrast with a natural skin tone. Cream, on the contrary, can merge with skin color and will not be sufficiently contrasted. When choosing a shade of white in this case, the decisive role is played by the dosage!

White for dark skin

Dark-skinned brides can afford a wedding dress in pure white. , Vivid contrast with the dark color of their skin will attract everyone's attention. Those who prefer a softer contrast can wear cream-colored wedding dresses.

Fabrics make difference

You have determined the shade of white that you need. However, this is only half the way. Now you need to choose the fabric. And on different fabrics the same shade of white will look different. A white chiffon dress will not be the same as a silk crepe. The best way to find out if a shade suits you is to try on a dress in the light of day.
