I have an ivory dress for my wedding.. We are havin a zebra themed weddin and I came across this dress. Having second thoughts. What do you think? Go traditional with the white dress or go crazy and different with one of these zebra dresses?

I would say go with the white… A wedding is a special oppertunity to wear white and you are not really going to do that again. These dresses look like prom dresses.

I would go with the traditional wedding dress, handsdown.

That would depend on a lot of things, such as your venue. If your venue is a church, then NO. But it could work some places.
I am a little more traditional, so if it was me, I”d probably get the ivory/white, put the bridesmaids in either the pink or purple OR black with a zebra print sash, and then put the flower girl in a dress like one of the ones above.

If you are going to be on Big Fat Gypsy Weddings then go with the zebra, if you’re having a normal wedding then definitely not. No.

@fuzzipeach: maybe get a dress like this for your bachelorette party?

I would say to go with the original dress.

Both of these dresses scream “I’m a 16 year old going to prom” for me. Just sayin.

Sometimes the best way to reflect a theme is through a single detail rather than a primary statement.
I would wear your ivory gown. If you want your bridal attire to tie in to your zebra theme, perhaps you could carry a zebra-print clutch or wear zebra-print shoes.

do a zebra print sash or a zebra print fascinator, something small but will still make a statement and tie in
or better yet, rock some fabulous zebra print shoes!! Lots of brides go fun with their shoes (mine will be Tiffany blue) and you could make sure to get pics of them

I don’t particularly like either of those zebra dresses – I echo the “prom” comments.
But I get what you mean about an ivory dress not being out there enough for a zebra themed wedding.
If you want to be out there a bit more, then maybe wear a pastel colour that looks good with zebra – champagne or oyster or pale gold would work.
Or go really out there and go with hot pink or purple like the accents in those dresses. This of course will depend on you venue and whether you have the right diva attitude to rock a bright colour!
I’m going to come over all spambot here, having posted this place a few times, but this place can make dresses in 60 different colours – you’re bound to find one you like here:
Here’s one they do in black and white. While it looks a bit like something Helena Bonham Carter would wear to the Oscars LOL, and it doesn’t need all those accessories, I think it’s kind of awesome:

Or you could go with a rockabilly/1950s theme with zebra prints. Maybe a tea-length dress – if not in white then in hot pink, red or turquoise (very 1950s colours).
See some ideas here:
