I’m just poking around for the future (I’m still waiting)…but I know for sure, I don’t want a white dress. I have always loved the color pink and I want my dress to be a light shade of pink. However, I am having the worst time ever finding what I want! All I find are white, strapless dresses everywhere I turn!! I haven’t looked in stores yet, but I have scoured the intarwebs, and pink dresses all look like prom dresses…I’m a lil too old for that lol. I am not very traditional, so it doesn’t need to specifically be a “wedding” dress…it could be formal or even bridesmaid if it were the right dress….I just can’t find anything even close to what I want. Am I the only one who doesn’t want to wear white? Has anyone had any luck finding a beautiful dress in another color besides white? Thanks!!

I want to wear gray, and I am still waiting too. I’m not even sure if I’ll ever actually wear a gown- as wedding plans are far off (2015-2016) and I don’t know we would even have a pre-wedding party before moving to Europe where we would basically just do the courthouse thing.
I too find it very hard to find what I want- tulle with darker (charcoal) lace overlays and some sort of strap or sleeve.

I have actually seen a few gray gowns, and they all look very pretty! I don’t remember where cause I was searching so much for pink lol…
I think gray would be beautiful!

My dress is a dark ivory! Lots of dresses come in other colours, one good one is called “dark oyster” kinda of a greyish/purplish funny colour, but it looks lovely!

Really pale pink wedding dresses are becoming more common and easier to obtain, and I tell you they really catch the light and photograph well. I say keep looking and don’t let the traditional colors put you off 🙂

If you have Jasmine’s Bridal Shop or Dressilyme make your dress they can make it in whatever color you want. So if you find the perfect dress in white you may want to consider going that route. 🙂

Have you tried looking for “blush” rather than pink?

try a champagne color or peach, rather than pink. I like champagne and am thinking of it for myself once i’m ready and get to that point 🙂 I have also seen a gray dress that was really pretty but like someone else said i can’t remember where I saw it.

Thanks, I would want to do gray with dark teal, purple, and maybe red-orange. He’d probably be okay with the “actual colors” but really doesn’t like my obsession with gray, but hey, it would be MY dress… haha.

Maybe you can look at light gold dresses. My dress is a light gold with a diamond white lace overlay.
