- Wedding: February 2015
Help I’m going crazy picking a color theme. I want some kind of lighter blue, but have to pick the dress first so I know what color we’re working with, but what I like in person may not look great at the venue. I haven’t been able to find a dress that we like in a blue that I originally imagined.
I am trying to decide between Alfred Angelo Blue Box, Once Upon a Time, or David’s Bridal Malibu. I decided I didn’t like Alfred Angelo Pool as it has a yellowish aqua tinge that I don’t think will complement the yellowish tinge of the venue’s floor. Then I chose AA blue box but I feel sick of it already. I am now leaning towards Once Upon a Time, which is a blue-ish grey, but wonder if it’s too “boring”. It looks good with a satin sheen, but I want chiffon fabric. I don’t want to play it too safe but I do want to be classy (I’m in my 30s). I’ll attach a photo of the venue with black chiffon sashes, it actually looks pretty good without color! so maybe we could pull off a more subdued color. We will be taking some photos on a beach as well which should add some color to photos.
For reference I am fair skinned, blonde hair, blue eyes. My BMs are my two sisters who look similar and a friend who is a brunette with blue eyes who tans well. 🙂
The two dresses I have picked are Alfred Angelo 7016S, and David’s Bridal F15603
Alfred Angelo 7016S Blue Box (in the right dress style)
Alfred Angelo Once Upon a Time color (but in the same style as blue box above – 7016s)
This is the same color, but the dress will be chiffon as below. Will it have enough “pizazz” if not satin? What other color accents could I do?
David’s bridal Malibu color (but in the style below)
DB Malibu in this dress style
