    I think so but I voted who knows bc Im not sure anyone can answer that for sure. It’s like the halo ring debate or some of the other things people do that others swear are “trendy.”

    Let’s face it, any wedding dress you get will look dated in a few years.  The designers do that deliberately, so they can keep selling women new dresses instead of having them buy older ones.  Go for what you like, and don’t worry about the whole “dated” thing.

    I’d be concerned about the dated look on a ring you wear forever/years but not so much the wedding dress.   I can pretty much look at anyone’s wedding photos and have an idea of decade it’s from… I’m sure yours will be no exception.  But then,  I almost think a dated wedding photo is a good thing – shows all the years and decades of commitment. 

    I have no idea if blue will catch on… in some ways my brain is justifying the color as being a lighting thing I barely see it as blue.  

    I would just go what you love.

    Personally I believe so. Simple, classy pieces (like a white wedding dress) are always classic for a reason. And while fashion forward pieces have their day and catch more attention (and possibly compliments depending on the crowd), they lose their appeal much quicker.
    As the 80′s have shown us, the bolder you go, the more dated it will be.

    Having said that, I think this dress is gorgeous. Would never buy it, but it’s definitely a stunning dress. It’s a false high-low (I guess that’s what you would call it?) ball gown with blue and purple layers of trim on the bottom. From the Lazaro 2013 collection

    I don’t think blue (or pink, or any other non-white colour) could possibly look dated.

    That’s because it will only ever be worn by a small number of brides.

    For a style or colour to be  dated it has to be typical of its era first – like short dresses in the 60s, maxi dresses in the 70s, puffed sleeves were in the 80s, t-shirt style ballgowns were in the 90s, pick-ups in thr 00s and strapless mermaid styles are today. 

    The dress style may look dated, but the colour won’t have a lot to do with it IMHO.

    I agree with PPs that the color isn’t what will make the dress look dated; it will be the style of the dress, that will date it.

    BTW, I LOVE blue wedding dresses! :) My grandmother’s dress was a powdery blue (back in the 1930′s;) and I’m having my dress made in a powdery blue, in remembrance of her.

    well blue was the original wedding dress colour before Queen Victoria made White popular… so actually blue is “dated” right now!
