    @peachacid:  I’m sorry, but I have to ask: how can a colour be vintage?

    I love both dresses that you’ve posted – i’m actually slightly leaning towards the vintage blue and don’t see a problem with you and your bridesmaids both being in blue. 🙂

    I think as long as your BM’s dresses are a different shade of blue it will look just fine. I really like the second dress with the flower 🙂

    I love the idea of you wearing the pale blue dress while your BM’s wear a darker blue. That would be different and really lovely.

    I am personally all for being very offbeat with weddings. If you’re thinking of going with your old prom dress, because you’re worried about money, and you are confident that it will not be a decision you regret then yes. Otherwise, don’t do it!


    You’re wedding dress is supposed to be important to you, it isn’t just wearing a dress that looks great on you. It goes a lot deeper. You want to have a dress that you put meaning into, not one that you share with memories of watching your classmates dance like fools. Maybe as a back up!


    As far as blue or white, that’s totally your decision but I guarentee you that light blue will still make you look just as bridal!

    I like the white one WITH the flower. When I was getting married, it was down to a gold dress which looked amazing and an ivory option which also looked amazing. To help me choose, I rationalized that there was never going to be another occasion where I could wear white (or close to white) head to toe. Turned out to be the lower price tag too, just a bonus!

    The vintage blue ones is gorgeous. I think it would look really nice if your BMs are wearing a darker color

    @BridieBea:  Colored wedding dresses were all the rage in pre-Victorian times. Wealthy families could afford rich, colored fabrics, whereas poorer families couldn’t afford nice fabric, much more the expense of having it dyed. It wasn’t until Queen Victoria of England wore white that it became “popular”. And while we are led to believe that white symbolizes purity, it’s actually blue that is tied to purity, faithfulness and the color that the Virgin Mary is depicted in. White is really just a post-Victorian fashion trend in the west and in the past few years, peaches, blushes/pinks and blues are making a comeback (Think Maggie Sottero’s Divina or Allure’s blue Cinderalla). Wedding dress history really is interesting, but I’m a bit of a dork..lol

    OP–I like the blue too. It’s lovely.
