Fiance wasn’t very happy when I warned him that my dress wasn’t white. At first he started to argue, then stopped and said “If I don;t think about it, it won’t matter to me”

All I could think was: “Oh, good! Because I already bought it and I’m not changing my dream dress just for your whims!”

I had a really dark champagne dress (before) and everyone seemed to love it and the fact it broke tradition. Maybe they hated it and just didn’t say anything…

I’m curious, what does your dress look like? 🙂

Only one person has seen my dress so far, but she seemed fine with the fact that it has a light blue accent.

I purchased a blush dress.  Original my fiance was against it but when I told him I fell in love with a blush dress he said “as long as you are happy, i will be happy.”  I have only shown family my dress and surprisingly they all love it and their comments are really supportive.

I’m wearing a red wedding dress but I haven’t really “announced” it. My fiance knows it was an option and actually encouraged it (“We’re not traditional people and I don’t want to have a traditional wedding… go for the non-traditional dress!”). When I asked people close to me for their opinion they said I love red and I look the most confident in the red dress so I should wear it.. Then again I’m pregnant so what are people going to say– chastise me for not wearing virginly white?! Ha ha.
