Ivory Is The New White


 

Ivory, it’s the crème de la crème of whites. Imbued with the softest, warmest undertones, the many shades of ivory are undeniably irresistible. So fresh yet formal, we love it on everything from dresses and cakes to pearls and lingerie.

The Dress. Softer and less stark than bright white, ivory by far is the most flattering choice for a wedding gown. Infused with the warmth of candlelight, it ranges in tone from nearly white to champagne and complements all skin tones. While pure white may leave the fairest brides looking pale, creamy shades bring out everyone’s natural glow.

The Bouquet. A symbol of hope and new beginnings, flowers in any shade of white are forever elegant. Roses, gardenias, ranunculus and orchids top the list of wedding favorites. Keep in mind that blooms with color variations are the most versatile. When making your final floral selections, take along fabric swatches to compare the subtleties.

The Pearls. Whether they’re creamy and cultured or antique Akoya, pearls cast a luminous luster that makes any occasion feel upscale and opulent. Borrow that heirloom strand you’ve been eyeing all these years. She’ll be honored. After all, the world right now is truly your oyster.

The Cake. The sweeter side of white? Buttercream. A tempting shade of ivory, it adds delectable richness to everything it touches.
