I had been dress shopping for a few weeks and had tried on what felt like a million dresses. The peanut gallery that I took with me each time I went to a new store was getting to be a bit much in terms of offering opinions, so I set out on my own one day. Thus, while out shopping on my own I happened to stumble upon a one dress that took my breathe away. It also happened to be pink. I tried it on, fell in love with it, and bought it that day.
I live in Boston and my parents live in New Jersey. Neither of them have seen the dress, as we have had it in hiding at my MOH’s house so that my FI couldn’t see it. My parents are clearly nervous about my non-traditional choice in colors, but I haven’t looked back once. Are there any other pink dress brides out there who share in my joy of trying something new and out of the box? I’ve attached a photo of the actual dress (Carolina Herrera) as well as a photo of Renee Zelwegger wearing the same dress (in Red) at the Golden Globes a few years ago. *High five* to all of my fellow pink brides! I’d love to see your dresses!

Ok. I LOVE your dress and have been toying with a pink dress too! (I have pink shoes also). Who is the designer?

Love it! I would have gone with a pink dress if I’d have found one I liked.

I think your dress is gorgeous! I wanted a pink dress but also didn’t find one I liked so I ordered my dress in blush so it has a pink tent to it.

Love the dress- its beautiful! Even though I’m not one, I have been wondering how many non-white/offwhite/ivory brides there are out there.

If you love this dress. Go for it. It will make you the happiest and feel the prettiest. I got talked out of a dress that was ivory with just a little gold (bows, gloves). I kind of regret not getting it….
