I am absolutely fixated on wearing a blue dress for my wedding. Pale blue, or silvery blue, or powder blue…
Anyone else? Or have any of you seen some great blue dresses that would work as a wedding dress?
I’m getting frustrated in my searching. Of course, my budget is $300 so that’s not helping!
I’ve been looking at prom dresses but don’t want anything shiny at all so that knocks out quite a few. I like matte jacquard, silk, matte taffeta. Just nothing shiny (fabric wise) or with sequins.
I still want other things like a fitted/molded bodice (preferably boned), a full skirt, and some kind of sleeve (cap or otherwise, anything but strapless)… and pretty details.

I have a blue dress. It’s an Allure 8350 in navy/siver.

I have definitely considered it, I love blue! hands down favourite colour.
How formal/classy is your wedding? Are you looking for a full length ball gown sort of deal?
I actually saw a post earlier about prom dresses as wedding dresses and a few of the links were to blue dresses –though they were pretty shiny (satin) and had pick-ups (which may or may not be your thing).
Have you tried looking on Ebay or Etsy? There should be lots of prom/pageant dresses on Ebay and Etsy has lots of vintage and custom work to browse.
Hope you find something lovely!

Thanks for the response…
I’ve been prowling etsy and ebay like a fiend!
Honestly, my wedding formailty level changes depending on my mood! Ha! I was first going for a tea length 50’s dress but lately have started thinking I want to go all out and wear something that looks very much like a wedding dress (just in blue)… since I never had a wedding before and don’t plan on having another! (1st time around was at courthouse)
We are getting married in a small 100 year old church though, the rural/simple white wooden sort, the kind you think of when you think “country” church.
So yes, I’m thinking full length, ball gown at this point. Don’t care one way or the other on a train, but chapel length is nice. I was settled on my 50’s tea length plan until I tried on some wedding gowns at the thrift store the other day and the feel of the full skirt, boned bodice, all of it just made me swoon and I started having a change of heart.
I love rosettes, floral details, buttons down the back, etc.
