@Mint2Bee:  It’s Allure 8966. There’s a store called Lisa’s Bridal in Vancouver, but I know they’re pretty widely distributed in the States. Now just to find a place to dye it blush for me… I was looking at the Divina originally, but this one is a touch more budget-friendly, and I like the buttons up the back instead of the corset (and every third button is actually a sparkly jewel!) Like you, I am pretty conservative, so I was really suprised by my choice.

@katlynandshane0209:  I look back at my first wedding pictures from 1990 when I wore a blush dress and that’s one of the things that I still love…unlike the exH!

@ChemistryBride:  Actually the white wedding dress has only been a tradition since Queen Victoria wore it. Until then women just wore their best dress no matter what the colour and the colour of purity was blue not white. Also as you may have read above that I wore blush 23 years ago…I think that’s more then just a trend.

@Luayne:  the ~170 years since Queen Victoria got married I think is more than enough time to call it tradtional. And trends go in and out all the time, heck, neon colors were in vogue in the 80s and that is all I see clothing stores right now. Does that means it’s not a trend? No, it just beens that fashion is circular and things cycle in and out.

Either way, I said it’s my opinion and not what I would do for my wedding. Other people can do whatever they want, I don’t have to like it. But if it’s what you like, just own it! No need to have any other reason. I think trying to defend it saying it’s more traditional/not a trend is just a little silly because once you start arguing that the oldest tradition is best, then at what point do we stop? It also used to be tradition to have arranged marriages and that women were essentially property with no individual rights, but I don’t want to bring those back.

That dress is gorgeous – the color is beautiful.  You could do a blue garter belt for your something blue.  I would put the girls in BLACK.  There, I said it!  It would look FRIGGIN STUNNING with a blush dress.  I don’t think it’s tacky AT ALL – it’s not about the color, it’s about the dress.  And if you really feel like you’ll miss out on wearing white, wear a really pretty white dress to your rehearsal dinner? lol

The dress you posted is beautiful. I would definitely support that choice. My only hesititation is your hesitation, but there is an easy solution for that: Go pale creamy blush. It is less dramatic but still flattering and lovely and very bridal.

My dressmaker hasn’t started on my dress so I don’t have a picture of what my dress will look like, but I am 90% sure I want it to be cream and blush (it is layered tulle). I think blush is classy, flattering, and it’s not in the same category as “colored dresses.” It’s kind of a member of the cream family.

Also, if you want to be sure your dress is staying in the warm tones: if it looks like lilac or purple would go with it, it’s cooler toned, but if it would go with creams and lattes and browns and mustards and golds, it’s warn-toned. I prefer the warm, dusty-rose blush (but pale).

Here are some other blush and pink dresses to encourage and inspire you. The last one is Reese Witherspoon, who is in my opinion a very classy girl, and I don’t typically care much for celebrities. 
On the first one, scroll down to a lovely winterscape with a blush tulle bride

I think cream colored Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses would look awesome with the BLush dress. I love it.

@laurelewrigley: I love your dress! But that’s as dark as I would go with blush.

@Roxykitten:  So I love blush/champagne dresses! Mine is “champagne” and it’s definitely got enough ivory/yellow in it that I can’t wear the grey shoes I bought on a whim. Sab, but oh well!

I’d actually buck tradition and put your bridesmaids in ivory. Why the heck not? I kind of love the idea of a switcheroo!
