- Wedding: October 2010
I know I am new here, but have been a lurker for a good while and now finally have a reason to post a request to anyone interested:
I am trying to pick a reception dress for a sit-down dinner reception. My ceremony dress is a diamond white ballgown, so I wanted something that is more convenient and easy to move in.
I think I have found the dress I like, but it does not come in ivory or white…..which is okay w/me because I figure that I can eventually have it cut and hemmed to a shorter tea or knee length to maybe actually wear again if it is a different color other than white! Lol!
Now I need to decide which color to choose…the “apple” red or the silver? The rest of my wedding is black/white damask w/touches of red and silver. My mantilla veil is diamond white and shoes are white/w/red rose shoe clips….not sure if I would keep those on w/the 2nd dress. Flowers are red w/black and white ribbons/damask, silver crystals, etc.
I am a very dark haired Latina w/dark eyes and a fair to medium complexion….
Here are the choices:
the “apple” red?
I guess I am concerned that the red is not “bridal” enough……..although I honestly think it would look better w/my coloring and is more “reusable” for later. What do you think? Thanks in advance for any opinions! 😀
