Re: veils!!!

  • diamond white on the contrary is more toward an ivory color. its a little more yellow. i thought diamond white was white white white...but it wasnt and i almost freaked when i couldnt remember what i ordered.

     oh wow im glad i asked that before i ordered it thank you!!!
  • Yea I feel like that is false advertisement because I too thought it would be the whitest of the white but it's not. Which makes no sense to me.

    i was very confused when i read that!
  • Diamond white is a little bit less harsh than true white, but not quite as yellow as true ivory.  It's kind of the in between color.
  • my dress is diamond white and not yellowish at all. it looks "white white" to me, its just not a harsh starch white.

    <div>Mine is diamond white and is very white, too.  I think it varies by designer what they consider "diamond white", "white", and "ivory".</div>

    I agree. I actually got ivory and started freaking out when I went into these stores with ivory dresses and saw how yellow they looked. My friend confirmed that my ivory really just looks like a softer white, which is what I wanted.

    I kind of wish all of the designers could come up with universal color pallet for bridal stuff. Its confusing, especially when you go months without seeing your dress.
