I purchased a wedding dress and it’s lovely, it’s really really pretty. And it’s very traditional. Which I am sooooo not. I let my mom and other family members sway my decision and I’m regretting it.
I have two solutions that I trying to choose between. One: I do a second more “me” dress for the reception. This will also be more practical for dancing. Two: I use accessories. Colorful tulle under the dress, dye my hair bright red (not fakey fake, but bright), colorful jewelry etc. I think I’m leaning towards the second option…. what do you guys think?

I like the idea of accessories, but dying your hair red doesn’t sound like a great idea. Do you normally dye your hair strange colors?

Would love to see pics! Vote a big NO to dying ydour hair bright red! I do love the idea of colored crinoline, colored shoes, statement jewelry.

Yeah I’m sort of known for crazy hair styles. Bright red is actually a comprimise for me because it’s almost a natural color. If I had my way my hair would probably be my something blue, but I don’t want to traumatize my grandma too badly!

Oh if you’re into being “different” I love the blue hair idea. So not me though. I think the dress is a little unique. Accessories would be great.

@Stefbroome: The dress is stunning!
Depending on your budget, I like the idea of changing to a more “you” dress that’s more comfortable for dancing. I still think you should dye your hair, though!

I kind of like the idea of a separate reception dress. I’m not usually a fan of brides getting two dresses, but I think it would make sense to have a classic and timeless elegant look for the ceremony (photos to pass down to your grandchildren, etc), and then change into something fun and flashy for the reception and treat it for what it is – a party! 🙂

i loove your dress!
i like the idea of wearing the traditional dress and making everything else more funky. that’s kind of what i did. my colorful hair is kind of my trademark, so everything else was more traditional and my hair was my something blue (and pink, haha).

I love the idea of two dresses. It will give you even more freedom for the reception dress. Traditional can be so beautiful and timeless, and then you can rock it out for the reception with something wild or really creative. Best of both worlds!

Wooooooooooooooooow! Gorgeous dress! Meh! If you love the dress then wear it. Maybe that is the shocker of it all… then the wedding dress you chose was so traditional :). If you love it… then isn’t it you?

@Stefbroome: wow i think that dress is exceptionally gorgeous and your own personality and self will make it unique. make sure the hair, makeup, shoes, and jewels are very YOU and the dress will transform. seriously i think that dress is GORGEOUS and i’m not traditional either. it is a wedding tho, and those are inherently pretty traditional!!! lol

I’ve had this little image saved for so long now.
Your dress is very pretty. I just put pictures together of my wedding vision and am really shocked at how traditional it all looks together.

If you like to dye your hair, I’d say go for it. I’m also really surprised about how traditional my wedding is now that it’s coming together… and I’m highly considering dying my hair rainbow colors. It’s a rainbow-colored wedding, and I WAS known for dying my hair crazy colors until I spent the last 3 years growing it out in my nautral color, and everyone knows I’m totally bored with it. For me, and possibly for you, I think it’ll just feel more me if I dye my hair.
Your dress is beautiful, btw!
