Does anyone here have a non-white dress like me? I always knew I wouldn’t be picky between ivory vs white, but the sample sale gown I purchased is a pale gray. Priscilla of Boston calls the color "grigio."
I also love pale pink wedding gowns!
Share your non-white dresses here!

I don’t have my dress, but have not been looking at white at all… started out convinced I wanted pale pink, then looked at champagne, and am now wondering about a pale lilac. I have found the perfect dress for my sister, who will stand up for me, in sort of a platinum color. Now I am wondering if champagne will look okay with that, or if I should go with the pink or lilac. What do you think?
I am glad to see that not everybody else is wearing white. I just can’t imagine myself in that much white – I actually don’t have any white clothes at all, and don’t think I look that good in it.

I think Platinum and Champagne can absolutely look wonderful together. Here is a sort of example:
Lilac! I would love to see that. Gwen Stefani’s pink dress was so pretty as well.

I just called tonight to put a down payment on the Maggie Sottero Amara Royale in Scarlet Red!
Actually, I’ve been meaning to post about this- I want to thank the WB reader that posted that link in the post for dream non-traditional dress. Otherwise, I might not have seen it.
I cannot wait to wear it, everyone is excited about it. 🙂

I am wearing the monique lhuillier blush pink, which is almost like a champagney pink because in certain lighting it looks like a golden ivory. LOVE IT!!!

I also have a non-white dress. Mine is a "light gold" pictured here: http://www.theparis.biz/paris/Item.cfm?CNum=308 (unfortunately i’m not a size 8, so i couldn’t find one for that price, but so it goes ) My colors are green and fall colors to accent, so my main worry is that it will look too yellow next to the green bridesmaid dresses, but i’m just hoping that’s all in my head! Everyone was dubious about the color when they heard it was light gold, but once they all saw it on me, they assured me that was definitely the one to go with! I got it last august and it’s finally in the store, now I just have to go pick it up!
oh, and what are opinions on the flowers on my dress? they are detachable, so I’m seriously considering just taking them off, but would it look odd without them?

I actually would like a sky blue dress in the gwen stefani style.
Alli, maybe you can take it off when you’re having your ceremony so it won’t interfere with your bouquet. Then put it back on during the reception? Just a thought! 🙂

yup it definitely looks like you can detach them with no problem since it doesn’t ruche (is that a verb) right up to the flowers. i kinda like them though? maybe a pretty brooch instead?

I have no idea what colour mine will be, I still haven’t started trying on dresses to see what suits me (mine’s being made for me anyway so I can pick anything! yay!)
I can guarantee it will not be white though. I NEVER wear white unless it’s under 50% of pattered fabric, as I am clumsy and messy (and probably will be on my wedding day too) and have skin pale enough that it "reflects" the colour of my clothing. So why the hell would I wear it on the most photographed day of my life?
I’m thinking an orange silk with cream lace overlay, or something like that. Apparently this is reminiscent of a creamsicle to Americans, but we don’t have those in Australia 😛
