(Closed) Different Coloured Wedding Dresses

posted 8 years ago in Dress
  • poll: would you be mortified to see a bride wearing something other than white?

    yes, white is the colour every bride should wear

    yes, but its the brides choice, if she is happy thats all that matters

    no, in fact I am wearing a dress that is considered away from tradition

    no, it's great to see brides embracing their own personalities, rather than pleasing everyone else

    no, while its not for me, I would love to see more brides rock the colours

    @euphoriascharm:  I didn’t really have a choice but to wear white, because that’s what my church considers “traditional.” I understand your point about “traditional” being relative to your culture and to the times, but it is what it is. And I’m happy with my white dress. 


    I respect others’ decisions to wear different colored dresses. 


    The only type of dress I can’t stand is an overly slutty dress, no matter the color. That’s just my personal opinion, as I’m someone who respects the “sanctity” of marriage. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for the current trends of strapless and/or form fitting dresses. I just personally hate when boobs are *that* close to popping out, or there’s way too much sking showing. You can be sexy and classy at the same time.


    Have you found a dress yet? I’m sure we’d all like to see pics 🙂

    After seeing so many weddings on this and other sites, it wouldn’t shock me at all. I think a bride should wear whatever she likes the best. I get that people would be surprised though if they’ve only ever seen brides wear white ever, but I don’t know why it should bother anyone.

    My dress was ivory and purple – I loved it and it really suited me, so I definitely wouldn’t care if someone else did. My SIL wore a dark red dress as her wedding dress, and it was gorgeous!

    If you love the dress you’re wearing, then go for it! Usually the dress you choose is a secret anyway, right? So not many people should see it until the wedding day, and anyone that is going to come up to you on the day and spout a load of crap about how horrible your dress is probably isn’t the kind of person you want to impress anyway.

    @euphoriascharm:  I would love to see a wedding where the bride wears a vibrant color and the guests are asked to wear light colors so she would really stand out. 🙂

    @fzesguer:  +1 on the dislike for overly sexy wedding dresses. I can’t get behind see-through panels. That being said, just because someone is wearing a modest wedding dress does not necessarily mean that they respect the sanctity of marriage and vice versa. I think I’m only saying this since I just found out that my friend’s wife has been cheating on him before and after their February wedding Yell

    @euphoriascharm:  You deserve a standing ovation for your post in my book. Grooms can wear black tuxes without anyone batting an eyelid, much less questioning whether or not they’re going to regret it fifty years down the line. Apparently, just because Sarah Jessica Parker wore a black wedding dress and regretted it means anyone else who does will as well – try to get your head around that faulty logic.

    I think every bride should be able to wear what colour they want without judgement or vitriol – white, ivory, blush, gold, blue, red, green and even the dreaded black Tongue Out


    My wedding dress will be red…

    .. and my reception dress will be black.

    white wasn’t even considered a wedding dress color until 1840. everyone wore colorful dresses… then queen victoria wore a white dress and everyone was like “whaaa???” and then (because everyone loves copying royals) it became a thing.

    @rosworms:  HA I knew it was fairly recent but I didn’t know it was the queen! I told FH about that in light of me not wearing white, since I know he’s not a fan of the royal family. His response:

    :-< GOOD.

    while I do think that dresses should reflect the girls personality, and can be all different colours, i still prefer white/ivory dresses with just some of the colour in them. I know someone who wore a dark dress as they never wear white and although she looked lovely, she didn’t look bridal. I also dont think you should wear black, although there is some fabulous black dresses I just think, its for funerals, and you can wear black dress any day. I’m totally not a conservative person, just imho x
