Ivory Bridesmaid Dresses
An ivory bridesmaid dress will always be a classic choice for any wedding. This color was made famous by Pippa Middleton who wore a figure-flattering Alexander McQueen ivory satin-based crepe bridesmaid gown at the wedding of her sister, Kate Middleton to Prince William. The dress has a cowl front with buttons covered with gazar and organza similar to Kate’s dress.
Brides who want to steer away from traditional white wedding gowns may choose ivory as an alternative. In western countries, ivory wedding gowns have already been a trend for several years.

A combination of white and brown, ivory is a simple neutral color but elegant to look at. In fashion, ivory is used to liven up light colors or lighten bold colors such as orange, blue, green and purple. It gives out an earthy shade when paired with light brown, light peach or pale green.
When it comes to casual dressing, ivory colored apparel is one trend that will never go out of style. From shirts, leggings, blouses or jeans, this shade will always be one of the most sought after colors.
There are also several other colors that have the shade of ivory, such as pearl, off white, milk white and opaline. These colors can be used to provide background and accent to an ivory themed wedding.
Coordinating Accessories with Ivory Bridesmaid Dress
Ivory has become increasingly popular as a color for wedding dresses. Silver and pearl jewelry are some of the right choices for accessories with an ivory wedding gown. Gold tone jewelry will give out a warm look and enhance the creamy shade of ivory. Burnished silver and rhinestones create an antique-inspired appearance.
When choosing jewelry, minimal is still the rule in any occasion particularly in weddings. Choose some key pieces to wear instead of overloading your body with accessories.
A choker is best with a strapless or halter neckline to create height or if you want direct attention to your face. This necklace style is fast becoming a trend because of its classic effect. However, if you do not want to wear a necklace, pick a pair of chandelier earrings instead. Style your hair in a bun or away from your face and adorn it with fresh flowers or feather barrettes.
If you want your décolletage as the focal point of your look, wear accessories that will draw attention to it. But balance everything out by wearing a cocktail ring, and a smaller bracelet or bangle.
Pairing a choker or pendant necklace with small or dangling earrings will do wonders for a dress with a V-neckline. Halter style bridesmaid dresses are complemented with hair accessories such as bejeweled or floral combs, pins or vines.
On the other hand, if you’re not comfortable wearing to much jewelry, diamond studs or a simple pearl is your best alternative. The most important thing to keep in mind when choosing the perfect accessories for an ivory bridesmaid dress is they should make you feel confident and comfortable.
