I knew I wasn’t sold on a white, traditional wedding dress. I tried on a few and liked them, but didn’t love anything. I started thinking about wearing a dress in color. Our colors are purple and turquoise. Today I was in the mall, and decided to try on some dresses in a prom dress store, not thinking I would find anything, just wanting to see some options. Well, I found a dress, and I love it! Bought it right then! Had immediate panic that I spent a bunch of money without thinking it through for days like I usually do! But I tried it on again when I got home, and yep, I love it! I’m so excited! I can’t post a picture right now, but I will in a little bit.

Sorry about the poor quality pics. Was hiding in the bedroom with my friend who took some quick pictures with her cell so that it wouldn’t be seen. It needs to be hemmed, because I am short, and the strap on the shoulder needs to be shortened. I am hoping to lose a little bit of weight, but even if I don’t, it fits perfect.

Just so it’s a little easier to see, it’s this dress, but in a turquoise color.

@joyfulgirl9682: That’s lovely, it’s got such pretty draping. It’s very flattering, you go in and out in the right places.

Fun! If you weren’t feeling the white vibe why not go for some crazy colour!!! With fancy hair and make-up you’re going to look like a jewel-toned queen!
Hell even without all the hair and extra stuff it looks amazing. Don’t you love when you want to wear the dress all the time? I might wear mine walking the dog, groceries, etc…because I love it so much!!!
Congrats on sticking to your guns and doing what you love. It’s so cool!

I love it times a million. Non-white-or-whitish dresses always get my attention and my adoration. It makes me so happy to see people moving away from white and its derivatives which aren’t even all that flattering on many of us! Your dress is beyond fabulous. I will die a little inside if you don’t post recaps after your wedding!

Love the dress and it looks great on you! It’s fun and flattering. I may be biased because I didn’t wear a traditional white/ivory wedding dress either but I still think it looks great!
