    I was just at a bridal show where they had a Vera Wang runway show, and only like 1/3 of the dresses were white. She had several nude/blush colored, and like 5 black dresses! They were really cool for the right bride I think. 

    One of the one’s I’ve put in my little tear-out folder is sort of covered in gold beads and detailing, by Lazaro. I think anything with a veil and a bouquet says wedding.

    I love them, but they are not created equal.

    I absolutely detest the dresses that are mostly white and have one pooing skunk stripe of turquoise down the back or something like that. Hate!

    Champagne, gold, pink, crazy color! I love it and think it can be done really well. It didn’t really fit me, but I’m totally not against it. I think it’s an awesome option for the less traditional bride.

    I had two weddings so I decided to wear traditional white for the one and a deep red for the other. I actually prefer the red dress.

    I tried on a red dress when I was dress shopping, as it was the one in that style they had in my size, they had shown me the ivory dress but it was only a size 8 :(… Was a stunning dress but I am soooo not the type to pull off a coloured dress πŸ™‚ if you can then go for it πŸ™‚

    @teabiscuit : I don’t have a picture of my dress because it is in production of beng made but it is going to be midnight blue.  I personally like to go back to the origins which is the blue dress way before white became a wedding style.  πŸ™‚  My bridesmaids are in Ivory dresses.

     

    What color were you thinking of doing your wedding dress in??

    @Niqs:  Its very old history but really blue was the orignial wedding dress.  White only came into play in 1840.   There were some queens back in the 1500’s that wore white but blue was the dominant color.  πŸ™‚  It has a very huge history. So I wanted to return back to the origins and wear blue.  And, I will for sure post pictures up when my dress comes in :))  I will keep you posted!

    @Niqs:  White became popular only after Queen Victoria wore it for her wedding. Prior to that most women wore their ‘best’ dress in whatever colour it was and the more fabric used represented higher social standing (thus the long train). Blue was actually considered the colour of purity not white as most people think.

    ET fix…stupid autocorrect! Bah!
