So, we've revamped our idea for our wedding theme, and are going with a "winter wonderland" -ish theme. So far we're having ice blue table cloths with white lace overlays, white chaircovers with ice blue sashes, a Xmas tree with blue bulbs (in silvery blue and darker blue) and white snow flake ornames with silver garland and white lights (will not be crowded though, just a few of each to not be overwhelming) and probably white hydrangea centerpieces with votive candles surrounding them.

I picked my wedding dress out before, however, and I picked ivory b/c stark white on my pale olive skin is not the best look for me. The sparklie bugle beads on my dress match the glitteryness of the snowflakes that we are using (I'm going for candlelight, some sparkling and snowy/icy looking).

I was going to do ivory for the white for church flowers, since I will be carrying those but I don't like ivory for reception decor.

Is it ok to have an ivory dress with WHITE as my wedding colors for the reception? I think it's probably ok bc no one else matches the tablecloths really, but I wanted to see what you all thought? Not that I have much choice but I just want to know if it's going to be icky. My mom thinks I sould match the tablecloths, and thinks we should use ivory overlay on my table (which I don't think is a good idea b/c it'll end up looking dirty compared to the other white ones)

Thanks for the replies!!! Another question--

Carry white or ivory flowers at the ceremony???? I was thinking ivory/cream colored flowers just for that part, but what do you all think?

I think white or ivory flowers, either one, would be fine, but what about throwing some blue in there too, just so it can "pop" off your dress? Sometimes I think having the flowers the same color as your dress makes them get lost in the whiteness.

I agree with everyone. No one will notice or care.

No worries at all.
It will all look beautiful,
and I love the idea of a mixed bouquet,
the one someone posted with the sparkly decoration in it is gorgeous.


I agree another color flower in with the white will look very pretty-

Ooooo! I love the bouquet that you posted sumbride! I think adding blue would look great!

I think it was smart of you to choose ivory since it looks better on you. No one will notice the color of the dress... they will just be amazed at how beautiful you look!

O by the way... I found these pics that are white and "icy blue" --- not exactly what you want but I thought it might help =)
