I’m a wedding photographer and I’m used to being in so many weddings and I want to do things different than what I’m used to seeing every week. That’s why I was thinking of going with something different besides a white dress. I’m in between a light gray or a kind of bronzed color. What do you think would look unique yet still pretty?

Both are unique and could definitely be beautiful; I know for someone with skin tones like mine, the bronze would be a lot more flattering than the gray. 🙂

Of the dresses you’ve posted, the first one is my favorite. So incredibly feminine and lush, and I think quite uncommon for a wedding dress. Maybe I’m a little biased towards the sandy colors, though, because I almost dyed my wedding dress biscuit. I ended up deciding to go ivory for the wedding, but I’m going to dye it biscuit now for the “after dress.”
Silver/gray is beautiful, too, though. I had my BMs wear pewter/dark gray and I loved it!

what is your skin tone? I think that that will help the Bee’s here answer the poll more effectively. 🙂

Personnaly I think light gray is a little more ”wintery” to me. They both look gorgeous but it really depends of your skin tone.

Personally, I love the idea of either color! All the dresses are very pretty and definitely unique…I think if I had to choose one, it would be a gold or copper color but that is bc I have a warm skin tone…Either way, I hope you end up with a non-white dress bc these are so pretty!

I think both colors are unique and pretty. Like others have said, go with the color that looks best with your skin tone 🙂

Both are super pretty – think it depends on season/theme/feeling of your wedding as to which would be “better” =D

All your answers make good sense. Sorry i’ve taken long to reply but im new to Wedding Bee and couldn’t find the way to get to your replies lol.
But to your questions:
Skin Color= light with dark hair
Dress Style= something similar to the 1st one but with a little more modern (have to respect my fiance’s opinion too lol)
Wedding Colors= really want more than one but my main one is a Sunny Yellow
and for the themes i was looking at something around these color inspirations

I’m wearing a Light gray gown. I have pale skin with dark hair and it looks really fabulous on me.
Just a heads up, the maggie you posted, that isn’t a light gray, it’s a blue (trust me!) I have been wanting a light gray gown for about a year now, so I’m happy with my choice. Be prepared for the wedding gown consultants to try to change your mind though.

I love the idea of a wedding gown with color – I just worry about the older crowd (grandmothers, etc) worrying that I didn’t wear white because I wasn’t “pure”. Do you think they people would still think that?
