I’m not, but that’s a really unique dress!  I can’t wait to see pictures of you in it.

I thought very seriously about it, but I decided to do black accents.  My bridesmaids wore black.

That is awesome!!! I’ve been struggling with my choice lately because my family wants me to wear a more classic bridal wedding dress, and I purchased one, but on my own I purchased a custom dark indigo/off-black if there is such a thing gown that is being custom made for me from etsy. It’s in a 1930’s style with a cowl neck and a cowl back and I love it so much more then the more traditional gown. I was going to wear it for the reception, but I might have to reassess the situation and just wear it all night 🙂

LOVE that dress and good for you for following what you want. Sarah Jessica Parker wore black I believe when she married her hubby.

 

Side note: Wearing white wasnt actually “tradition” until the Victorian Era. Many brides just wore their “best” dress and that was often the same dress they would wear to church, a funeral or whatever major event came their way. My mom didnt wear a traditional white gown. She wore her costume. Its all a matter of what you will love.
