Bright white tends to look cheap and trashy. Very few can pull it off!

it doesn't matter, I love all shades of white, but I picked Ivory, tho not sure it suits my skin tone(been told by my male best friend that it doesn't) but I love it.

I should wear red, since that's what is traditional in Bengali culture. My mom wants me to go with pink [which is an option], while part of me wants to go purple. However, I'm currently in love with an orange dress in Marchesa's Spring 2008 collection which is enough gown and Indian influence to appeal to my tastes.

Depends on the dress itself. Who knows?

White and Ivory, how boring! I'd much rather go for something colourful and mad - now if only I could find someone to persuade to marry me..!

My dress is diamond white so it's kind of like ivory. My skin is golden brown and I think it looks divine! (not that I'm biased or anything)

I said white because I embrace certain wedding traditions, this being one. However, the ivory dress is more accurate. I'm not religious, but it's just plain offensive to come off as pure if you aren't.

They're should've been an option for other colors. Personally, I don't really like traditional wedding dresses.

I look better in pure white and it's more traditional.

I ALWAYS wanted an ivory dress, but when it came time to actually shop for a wedding dress, I chose white! My then-fiance-now-husband said "Oh thank goodness, I really didn't want you to wear ivory - what would people think if you didn't wear white?" Uhh...weirdo! I love him anyway :)

True white only looks good on a few people, so definitely ivory. I'd like to add that there's nothing worse than bight blue-white acetate "satin".

I can't imagine myself wearing a wedding dress. I hate weddings.

I have light olive skin and went with ivory. White made me look like I was sickly.

I don't know if I would want a white white dress. I might like ivory or a very very pale pink or cream color. I'm not quite sure what actually would look best with my pale skin.

My dress is Ivory AND Champagne... great combo! I'm not wearing it until my evening fall ceremony in October, but this is what it looks like (I can't wait!!!!)

I don't love a real stark-white dress, but I don't love ivory either. Mine was somewhere in between, called "diamond white" was perfect for me.
