    I think the style and cut will date the dresses more than the color. I actually think you’re going to start seeing more and more colored dresses in the future.

    I should add I’m especially biased here because I plan to wear blue – not any old blue but sapphine blue!

    If it is dated, it has a long long history of being dated. My mother wore a dark blue dress for her wedding in 1970. My grandmother wore blue for her (second) wedding in the 1950s. I’m pretty sure someone in the generation before that wore blue as well.

    Sure, you’ll see plenty of brides from the 1950s onwards wearing white, but before that it was a choice for the wealthy. It was coloured dresses all the way.

    Ironically enough, one of the reasons I don’t like white is because of the virginity symbolism. Now I’m wearing a colour with just as much virginity symbolism. Fortunately, most people don’t know that and will just assume I’m a raging hussey.

    My aunt got married in a powder blue dress in 1980. My great aunt got married in her blue prom dress in 1958. Blue has been the alternative wedding dress color for generations. I don’t consider it to be trendy.

    I don’t believe in timelessness. If your dress doesn’t look dated, your hair and make-up will, or the photography (look back at your parents wedding – there is way more that is dated in the photos than just your mom’s dress).

    Go with what you love and don’t look back!

    Color does not date a dress but silhouette and fabric does. Taffeta and sleeves anyone?

    I agree with the PPs who said that almost EVERY dress will look dated in time.

    80s brides with the big poofy sleeves and lace over every inch probably thought they looked “classic.” Brides didn’t use to wear strapless white dresses.

    OP- my two cents is to find the dress you love now and rock it!
