  • poll: I am so NOT a young, virgin bride so should I be wearing white?

    No don't wear white - show some respect!

    Wear whatever you want - it is your wedding!

    Go with the peachy cream one

    Love the black

    The nude and black is a good compromise

    I think you should wear whatever you want, whether it’s white, black, peach, gold, pink, purple, RED!!

    Don’t feel like you need to fit into a certain idea for your wedding, you should wear what makes you feel happy and beautiful!

    Wear whatever you want. My mom was in her 40’s with almost adult children when she married my stepdad, and she wore an offwhite dress.

    Do what you want! It’s your wedding.

    However, I would suggest not wearing black, there are soooo many times in your life to wear black dresses, you should want to stand out and feel special in your wedding dress!

    I say wear what you want. My mom wore white when she got married the second time and looked fabulous.

    It’s your wedding so wear what you like and what makes you comfortable. I think it’s acceptable and many top wedding dress designers, including Vera Wang, are embracing all colors including black.

    However, to play Devil’s Advocate, Sarah Jessica Parker wore black on her wedding day and now she regrets that decision. She plans to wear the white, traditional dress if she does vow renewals.

    @Blackie:  I voted wear what you want its your wedding! The bride will always look stunning……I happen to think just by looking at you that you would look amazing in red!

    Wear whatever you want! The first dress is really interesting and unique, and I think it looks great on you. The whole “wear white” is such an old tradition anyway, I think we can all look past it.

    Wear whatever you want. All that is important is that you are getting married and you feel like the princess you deserve to feel like.

    It was my only wedding and I wanted to wear navy.  Everyone talked me out of it.  I really regret wearing ivory.  I think you would look kick ass in that black dress, work it!
