    @Niqs : you should deff. check it out its great stuff to learn about.  My county museum just opened up a church house and it has all that information in there.  I love to see people read it out loud because they are shocked about it.  :))  Congrats on your wedding BTW!

    @Niqs:  I look horrible in white and even worse in off white…I mean liver transplant jaundiced  YELLOW! So why would I wear a colour that looks terrible on me?

    Yes it is my second wedding but even for my first I wore blush pink!

    @FutureMuniz:  Np…I love history too…and the fact that so many people are shocked when they find that out because of how our culture believes. I was just reading the ‘asking father permission to wed’ thread and so many women are insulted by that tradition but they don’t know how many of our traditions came about. I just find it so interesting.

    I love all your choices!
    I havent gone for full colour, because I tried some coloured dresses and they just didnt look right on me. In the end I ordered a white dress with a “tacky, skunk pooed” section in black that wraps around the waist and then creates the train down the back. It has cute little buttons running down it and sparkly beading around the edging. It makes me grin every time I think about it!
    Good luck in choosing

    I think they’re fabulous!  Assuming Western culture, it’s a definitely a gutsy choice.  For myself, I waver, because I’m not sure I’m ballsy enough to wear a colored dress.  At the same time, I look like crap in pastels, and best in jewel tones and dark colors.

     

    Now, some of the colors you see in Eastern weddings are just so gorgeous!  Love them so much more than white!

    I’m soo pale, and white isn’t flattering on me.

    I love ivory, blush, gold, coffee colored dresses..etc. I love coloured dresses on other brides, but I couldn’t pull it off!

    Honestly down here its hard to find a “white” dress. Most stores here have off white or ivory dresses. Your chances of finding a white dress is very slim. I even saw this on a episode of Say Yes to the dress. They dont have that many white dresses as well. My dress is a colored dress. Actually its very colorful. Its white and peach and I believe it truly defines my personality and I love it with all my heart. I tried to do a traditional white dress… It just wasnt me. Here is my dress:

    I’m wearing a honey gold colour. White just doesn’t do it for me.
