Well when you think of your wedding day, do you envision yourself in white/ivory/silver? If you just envision yourself in a beautiful dress, that you feel glam in! I say get the blue! I am always so fond, of unique dresses, colored or what not! I say get the blue, if saving money is more a priority!


You will look amazing either way!

I think blue is a lovely idea!! It is your wedding and you should pick what you love. I am sure your guests will like seeing a non-traditional wedding dress!

My dress is pink. As a color, it works best on my skin-tone and it doesn’t hurt that I love pink in the first place1

i think it just depends on what you want. i’m also having an informal, outdoor wedding and i’m wearing a short dress. i saw a light pink dress that i loved, but the more that i thought about it, i realized that i just really wanted an ivory dress for my wedding. that’s not to say a colored dress wouldn’t be awesome for someone else, it’s just not right for me.

Well, it’s not that i don’t like blue dresses (it’s my favorite color!) but this is your big chance to wear white as a bride! I vote for not giving that up. Wear a blue headband or flower in your hair if you love it so much! But ultimately you have to feel beautiful and ‘bridal’ so if this dress makes you feel that way, go for it!!

I love colored wedding dresses! There was one particularly cool wedding (on green wedding shoes, I think) where the bride wore blue and the BMs wore white. So cute and such a fun take on things.

I say go with what expresses you best. People should look at your wedding dress and say, “Awww, it’s so beautiful and it’s so her”.

If you like the blue dress go for it.  Nothing is written in stone that you have to wear white or ivory.  It is your wedding day and I think you should wear whatever color you want to.  Don’t worry about what others might think.

If you need support in numbers: I am also wearing a blue dress!  It looks better on me than white or ivory, and i will cut it short and wear it again in the future. 

As for what your guests will think: in my circles, it would raise no eyebrows. My last friend to get married wore a short red dress.  But only you can judge how conservative your guest list is.  I’m sure there are some peope in the world who would be taken aback, but I don’t know if you’ve invited any of them to your wedding.  And keep in mind that not everyone who will be surprised will also be judgmental – they may decide they like it even if it wasn’t what they expected.

My wedding gown is a blush pink color.  Never in my wildest of dreams have thought I would fall in love with a wedding dress in any other color then white! But when I tried on the dress sample I felt so beautiful.  The sample was blush pink so I didn’t give it a second thought to order it in any other color.

Colored wedding dresses have been around since the dawn of time. It’s only been since the early 1900s (it took awhile to catch on after Queen Victoria introduced the color in the mid 1800s – as a symbol of wealth, not purity as many people don’t realize or care) that the white wedding dress has been in existence. In many cultures, white for a wedding dress is very taboo as it is a color for mourning. Blue has represented purity for several millenia. Red symbolizes love and passion, which is why it is common in Asian weddings. Don’t let anyone talk you out of your choice, whatever color you have decided on. If someone doesn’t like it, they can stay home and wear the color they prefer when it is their turn.

I agree- I think that different colors are making a comeback.  I bought an Ian Stuart gown, if anyone has seen these gowns in person, they are very stunning… very haute couture to wear a color. Check out this video of some of them on the Milan runway, many dif colors…. some too over the top for me but most dreamy!
