@starrynight:  I think it depends on the dress. This is one of my contenders and honestly i doubt you would wear something like this to an event LOL. Some dress in color do look very bridal. It depends on the dress i do agree some look more like evening gowns

@malouloune:  Girl, that is GORGEOUS!

OP: I’m not fashionable enough to comment on the topic of colored wedding dresses haha. I think a lot of them are lovely, but I don’t know anything about them.

@starrynight:  What’s the difference between a white evening dress and a wedding dress for that matter? A wedding dress is just a “white” dress.

@starrynight:  White is a tradition that has been around for just over 100 years, which really isn’t long when people have been getting married for much longer than that  =o)  Just as white was a new trend at one time, colors were common before that, and are now phasing in again.  Sometimes people get married in pantsuits… as long as it feels bridal to them, I think that’s what differentiates it from any other outfit.

I think it just depends on the bride & the family.  I’m a fairly non-traditional bride & I did want at least a bit of color in my dress.  Just didn’t fine one in my price range that I liked.  My family & fiance are a little more traditional so I wanted something that they would like too.  Otherwise I may have gone with a more bold color!

Also, I don’t really have any opportunities to wear an evening gown as fancy as a wedding dress, so I figure anything that fancy can be a wedding dress 😉  But thats just me!

@starrynight:  as stated already, Queen Victoria popularized white wedding dresses.  But originally blue was the color most associated with purity as it is always linked to the virgin mary, so it was once a very popular choice. 

if there is a headpiece, bouquet and an aisle with a person on the other end i would know its a wedding no matter what.

For me it was the train.  The dress I went with has both a “wedding” version and a “quincenera” version with the difference being the train.  For the record, I’ve seen many white prom dresses so white isn’t just a wedding color.

Here’s my dress:

I really like the light pink blush dress like malouloune posted. It’s still light and wedding-y but …PINK! hehe

I personally feel that WHATEVER dress a bride wears to her wedding is a wedding dress. I wore a colored dress with no train and no veil and I felt no less a bride than someone with a huge white ballgown and cathedral train.

Some people dream of a short purple dress. I think its awesome to be untraditional.

When I got that bouquet in my hand, that’s what made the look feel complete.

I think like @malouloune:  dress shows, its definitely the style that still makes them bridal. They often have the train and bling that you wouldn’t find in a normal evening gown, but that awesome color on top of it all
