What Shade Of White Should I Wear?
Question: I am having my bridal gown made by a dressmaker. Since I already have one child with my future husband and we already live together, what colour should my dress be? The wedding will take place in a chapel, not a church, but my mother still feels that I should have a slightly off-white dress.
Answer: by The Knot
Well, it depends on your complexion and your taste, not on your wedding location or whether you’re a mother yourself. You and your mum should be aware that although white traditionally represented purity, these days it just symbolises wedding joy, so you don’t have to be “virginal” to wear it. If you look great in pure white, wear pure white.
Also keep in mind that you don’t have to wear a shade of white or ivory if you dislike it or it’s hard to find a good shade. Consider light pastel shades of pink, lavender, celadon, or gold. Above all, be sure whatever you wear makes you feel comfortable and beautiful.
