I say that if its your style and your personality, GO FOR IT! I’m actually looking at some prom dresses too, because I’m dead set on wanting either blue or lilac and those are hard to find for wedding dresses. XD

My wedding is just going to be in the backyard of a Bed and Breakfast though. I dont know if country club people will have something to say about you wearing something so not bridal.

I think it’s pretty and you should go for if you love it. Don’t worry about trying to match the venue — you’re the bride. You can wear anything.

I love the colour!!

More bridey? Add a veil. A veil makes anything look bridal.

What does your Fiance think about your idea? If he is all about traditional weddings, do you think he will he be surprised/disappointed if you wear a blue dress?

I attended a wedding where the bride was SO not a girly girl. She was outdoorsy and into hiking. Her family was very traditional though and she had to compromise on the dress. She wore a lovely champagne dress which was dark enough to not be traditional white bride, then changed into a lovely brown flowy evening gown (similar material to the one you posted) for the reception and dancing. I thought it was a wonderful compromise and had the best of both worlds!

Pale pink is bride-y! Just look at all the blush wedding gowns. I doubt anyone will say boo (if you look beautiful, who cares if it’s technically a prom dress?) and if they do, just tell them Vera Wang is doing the pale pink dress thing, so it must be bride-y!

I think this dress looks much better in pink. The blue and silver looks like a prom dress, which it is.

I’ll be honest and say I’m not a fan of it. I’m all for non traditional, but there’s just something off. I wanted to wear a burgandy bridesmaid dress for my wedding, but my SO balked so I get it. But I think this dress misses the mark. Keep looking!

@jess226:  Gosh…that dress is gorgeous in pink. Ok here’s my suggestion if your Fiance wants you to go traditional. Do a traditional (but simple) dress for the ceremony and photos and go pink for the reception so you can feel like you at the party! It’s a perfect compromise and everyone gets what they want!

I personally love when people go outside the box. Not everyone is meant to wear the same white lace dress! Especially if your personality is more creative and fun, why not go for some color and sparkle. I really like the pale pink – such a pretty feminine color. Can you try it on with a veil and all the accessories?

I think you should wear what you want, but consider that your Fiance may have a vision in his head of what you’ll look like on your wedding day and this isn’t it.

Personally, I don’t like the dress at all. And this is coming from someone who isn’t into wedding traditions at all. I think you can find something less traditional but more formal, well-made and classy than this. This dress looks like something a 16 year old would wear at prom.
