I’m not a fan of the white/ivory dresses just because I’m incredibly pale. I love the antique gold and the silver wedding dresses that Maggie Sottero makes. Both are such pretty colors on super pale skin- it’s hard to pick >_<

yup.  I’ve got photos on my blog and somewhere on here (i think)…

It’s a pretty soft/pale pink/peach (think flesh-tone) with black embroidery and a black skirt.  lots of sparkly sequins and beads.  Very non-traditional in design and color. 

I have a friend who wants a black and lime-green gown with a corset-style bodice.  (yet she wants ME to wear a traditional white gown.  go figure.)

I’d suggest trying on a black gown and make sure it’s what you REALLY want, because I’d hate to see someone buy something because they think it’ll be great and then have major gown regret. πŸ™‚

Yes!! Good for you! I know a girl who chose black as her gown color and she LOVED it. I personally am so tired of every wedding and every wedding dress looking the same, so I applaud you for wanting something unique! πŸ™‚

My dress color will be red, although I’m having a hard time figuring out a complementary color for the accessories like hair fascinators, gloves?, etc. But I’m definitely doing the red!
