So i’ve workd out wat dress i want, has the same shape as this dress but i’ve made a few changes (to the bottom and i’ll hav a red sash). The change to the bottom is really hard to explain.
I really really really really want black, i’ve tried on heaps of white dresses and don’t get me wrong i’ve liked sum of them but none of them felt ‘me’. Then i saw this dress of offbeat bride and straight away imagined me wearing it at my wedding with my few changes, this hasn’t happend with any other dress.
Problem is thou almost every1 else has told me not to wear black to my wedding (i’m a nerdy/punk and i luv it). I kno it’s my day and i’m paying for it but i’ve always had problems with disappointing ppls and my mother is really good at guilt tripping. So go with my heart and get black or follow the norm and get white?

How does your Fiance feel? If he’s on board then go for the black dress!

If you wont regret it then do it! To get the feel you can always try on some bridesmaids dresses in black in the shape you want!

Fiance is on board, he’s used to my fashion sense (bows, stripped socks, suspenders ect). If it helps i already kno the shoes i’m wearing, custom convers sneakers in the same color as the dress. My Fiance and i love convers!!!

I say wear what makes you happy!
If you’re really concerned about disappointing people(and depending on budget) maybe look for a white dress for the ceremony then switch to black after…

I think you should wear what you want to wear – it’s your day and as long as you won’t look back and wish you wore white then then go for it!

I say wear what you want… do you think a middle-ground… like a deep gray would be an option? Just wondering 🙂 I personally love black though

Go for the black. You only have one wedding day to do exactly what you want! You will dissapoint someone no matter what and you can’t change that, but you do not want to dissapoint yourself on that day.

I am wearing a black dress for my wedding… I wouldnt have it any other way. I tried on a bunch of white dresses, and only one seemed “decent”. I look at it this way, if someone can’t accept the fact i am wearing a black dress, they didn’t make the guest list anyways. Anyone who really knows me, or my Fiance, knows that “traditional” wedding stuff is just not who we are.
Go for it. You want to feel like yur best on your big day!!

wear what makes you feel good! After i read this i had to google black wedding dresses and i LOVE these pictures! i think you can totally pull it off – they both still look very bridal in my opinion.

I got married a month ago and one thing I learned from the experience is to do what really makes you happy. I tried to make other people happy in a few instances and it backfired on me. I made the decision to just do what really makes me and my husband happy and I have never regretted that decision. It wasn’t easy, but I am so happy I followed my heart.
Do what makes you happy because it is your day.

If the black feels like you, and the white just doesn’t, then wear the black! In My Humble Opinion, on your wedding day you should feel like the best version of yourself. If that means wearing a black dress, then go for it. 🙂

thanks guys, guess i’m second guessing cause no one else (besides Fiance and MOH) is suporting the idea, they’re all dead set againsts it. Put it this way before i even started looking my mum said ‘this is a wedding kiku1990 and that means a wedding dress not the crap you normaly wear’
