you could always say SCREW the wedding industry and what is ‘appropriate’ and wear whatever color dress you want? if you don’t want to do that I’d go for an ivory or a dress that has color accents? If it makes you feel better, I didn’t think I was going to look good in white (because I’m pasty white myself) but I looked fine! You’re not really going to be able to tell until you actually try wedding dresses on.

Try blush or champagne. Its all about the undertones. There are a lot of different shades of white out there so see which designers make dresses in a “white” that is more flattering on you. Or get a white dress with some color on it in the sash. Or one with gold underlay and a lace overlay. It can feel white without actually being white.

Blush pink is a popular wedding dress choice right now, do you look good in that?

I thik every bride looks gorgeous and it has nothing to do with the dress or make up or colours- it has to do with the glow that comes out from being so happy.

With that said if you really dislike yourself in white why not go for another colour? Pale pink, coffee etc.

Yeah, go with whatever colour you want (up until about 1840, blue was the traditional colour for a wedding dress, anyway!). I look awful in white too – I’m very pale normally, as well as being overweight, so unless I get a major tan and lose lots of weight, I’ll look like Moby Dick.

There are loads of beautiful, non-white, wedding dresses – ivory is a good suggestion if you don’t want to be too different in your choices, and pastels are an option too. Failing that, just go with something completely different – my sister in law wore red and she wouldn’t change it for anything!

The look you’re seeing while while trying on a stark white, casual dress or a darker ivory or yellowish ivory casual dress really won’t be the same as what you’ll see when you see yourself in a beautiful wedding gown in a diamond white (a soft, off-white) or light (non-yellowish) ivory tone in a more “bridal” fabric.  I wouldn’t worry.  However, I would be sure to try on different tones of white/diamond white/light ivory/champagne/blush colored gowns to see what you like best with your skin tone.  I’m sure you’ll find something that you truly love! 🙂

without seeing a pic of you I cant recommend a particular color but wedding dresses come in many different shades: champagne, toffee, blush, silver, blue, coffee, white, diamond white, ivory, pink, etc.  Also most stores I visited carried the dresses in the off color so you should be able to try on enough to figure out what works foor you. They do that becuse people cant imagine what it will look like in another color but everyone can imagine white ;
