In My Humble Opinion, I think that adding color to a dress can sometimes take away from the bride and even the beauty of the dress. The color tends to shift the focus from the dress overall, to the color on the dress.  I think the dress now (all white) would be beautiful. 

If this is your style and what you want, then I say why not, its your wedding!  It’s not my style at all, but at the end of the day, its not my wedding or my dress, so I think you should do what you ultimately would be happiest with.

I’m a sucker for colored accents, but the blue colorblock is not quite my style. It’s probably that the blue panel seems really random from a design standpoint. Plus, I tend to prefer colored trim. I’ve seen many white 1950s prom dresses with accents that I love, so my style is more like this:

I think it’s lovely. I don’t think it’s too disconnnected from the bodice, but if that bugs you are you able to have a little bit of the embroidery on the panel?

ETA: Have you looked at some of Alfred Angelo’s dresses? He has coloured panels like that and they look gorgeous. I don’t think you should be concerned.

WhatWays at about a blue crinoline underneath? Lots of brides here have done that for a subtle but still awesome pop of color. Then you can show it or not and no worries about it looking disjointed or anything.

How about blue crinoline or blue in the corset or buttons, depending on the style of the dress? Or blue shoes even.

I don’t care for the look. However, if you LOVE it, you should go for it.

Have you tried on dresses in person with color in them? That would be the #1 thing I’d do if I were considering getting a dress with color on it, before ordering.

@Pinkmoon:  +1 I remember this was popular a few years ago. I think it’s gorgeous, I’m thinking of doing mine.

If it makes you feel beautiful, then go for it! However, I think if you’re going for the “something blue” it could be added to something else, such as your shoes.
