Hey Bees, this is my first time starting a thread….are there any other brides wearing a dress that is not a “traditional” color? I’m a little nervous about wearing my blue dress. I’ve always wanted to wear blue, but now I’m having second thoughts. So help me feel not alone and post pictures of your dresses please! 🙂
Here i’ll start! I also don’t know how to resize images….

I don’t have a colored dress, but I really love yours. I originally wanted color (I was looking at a blush dress) but since my mom was paying for it she nixed the color idea. I know there are several Bees on here with colored wedding dresses.

@Mhelms: I don’t have a colored dress, but I tried a few on. However, the one I fell in love with just happened to only come in white. Anyways, I love your dress! I think that blue is gorgeous!

@Mhelms: I loved those Alfred Angelo blue gowns so much! I think it’s such a beautiful shade of blue.
Here’s my gown that has a light blue accent on the skirt:

oh I love your dress OP! Such a lovely shade of blue!
Im not at the point of picking out my reception dress yet (im wearing a family dress for the ceremony), but part of me wants to get a bright pink dress. Just because. We’ll see though!

@Mhelms: you look like something out of a fairy tale! LOVE the blue!
My dress isn’t in yet but I ordered it with beige lining and dark ivory lace/tulle. hoping it ends up looking like a light beige color. I also considered blush or pale green. I love colored gowns!

@Mhelms: Ohh my goodness I LOVE your blue dress! My dress is going to be a light, powdery blue as well; my grandmother’s dress was blue, and ever since I was a little girl, I *knew* that was going to be my dress color!

The dress I bought already is largely black, though the original one I wanted is blue (and I’m thinking about wearing that one instead? I dunno) But either way… colored! And not ivory or champagne either.
And your dress is STUNNING and wonderful.

@Mhelms: Your dress is amazing! I love the blue. I really wanted to find a champagne dress but when I was shopping there weren’t that many out there,

Thanks everyone! Its nice to have unbiased opinions…my mom and sister loved anything I tried on. I had to sell them on the blue though 🙂
@saffy I love the hint of blue in your dress!
@LadyMoriarty I recently found out that my grandma wore a pink dress! Yay for awesome grandmothers!

I looove the blue!!! You look like an angel! Def stick with your gut, it’s gorgeous! Plus blue dresses are actually MORE traditional than white. White wasn’t popular until Queen Victoria wore white, before that it was always BLUE!
