Is anyone out there wearing something other than a traditional wedding dress?
We have both been married before and we’re getting married in our home with family and close friends in attendance. I bought a couple of dresses, one ivory sheath dress with a bolero jacket and one gold cocktail dress. I’m a clearance rack shopper and got two great deals. I’m not sure which one I’m going to actually wear. Neither is a wedding dress and both can be worn for other occasions. Is there anyone else out there who loves dresses but isn’t doing the traditional wedding dress thing?

I think I have picked my dress, and it is not a traditional wedding dress, and not even white-which was not what I was expecting. But somehow, this dress seems to fit everything I am looking for. I am having an art deco theme wedding, and it perfectly fits my venue, and the 30’s look I was going for. I didn’t want anything with a train, and when I saw this dress I loved it on sight. So this is my non-traditional, but perfect for me, dress:

I am getting married for the 1st time and not wearing a traditional dress. Mine is considered a wedding ‘alternative’ dress. It’s ivory, has crystal beading, lacks a train, and has absolutely no puff. It is something I can likely wear again if I want.

I think that for some people (myself included), the traditional wedding dresses just doesn’t fit our personalities! I ended up with a satin dress from BCBG – no train, no puff, no bussle, not strapless – and I love it! I say go for whatever suits your personality and budget!

Beautiful dress – SandyThePoet!
I wanted to post pics but I couldn’t find any on the internet. I can take pics of them hanging on their hangers when I get home from work. I’d love to see pics of your dresses!
And… what do you think about various colors? I bought the ivory dress first knowing I absolutely didn’t want white. But… now I’m thinking I love the gold even more. (I didn’t plan on gold. I just found it in my size on a clearance rack. lol!)

I found both of my dresses online.
First the ivory (which has gold detail but actually looks more ivory than gold in reality) then the gold.

What color is your wedding/bridesmaid dress?
