@Pand0ra  Wow! Those are both gorgeous! Too bad your Fiance can’t see past the colour…maybe you just need to work on him a bit. lol

When I got married the first time in 1990 I wore a Sposabella Demetrios in blush and I still remember the reactions. Colour is still not very common now but back then it was unheard of! People kept looking at it sideways and asking if it was white or…PINK?!?! I quite happily said yes it was pink and everyone responded that it was definitely ‘me’ (I’ve always been a colour person). Luckily I have parents that let me make my own decisions (as long as they could afford it! lol). For years after I had people comment how much they loved the dress and my wedding though!

This time, my FH and I are paying for the wedding completely ourselves so I feel even less disposed to do what others think is ‘traditional’. Purple is my favourite colour and looks awesome on me. In fact, white looks terrible and ivory looks even worse. Personally I don’t think either are very flattering colours for most people. I have very yellow skin tone and I end up looking jaundiced…so no liver disease for my wedding pics please!

@hiroshymatetrastar  Sure! Could you send me a PM just so I’m reminded. I have a terrible memory right now (work straight nights, renovating our house and keeping track of three kids and wedding planning) so I forget things a lot! lol It will probably be a little while still before she has much to show me. She is so excited about it though which is awesome!

I wore red!  I just couldn’t picture myself in white, and I look better in red 🙂

Oh my goodness! All these dresses are gorgeous! While I already have my dress (in ivory/champagne), this one was definitely a regular on my inspiration board:

@Luayne  We have talked about maybe doing a vow renewal in Italy for some of his family and, for that dress, I may glam it up with a color. Funny though, when I did finally order my dress I told my fiance it was ivory and he had the same reaction as he did to the blue/pink…  apparently in his mind pure white, and only pure white, is bridal.

This is one of my contenders. Justin Alexander 8465… This one is tea length and latte/ivory. The other one is full length and pure white.  Still undecided.

I love this Jim Hjelm from the Spring 2012 line, it comes in peach!

This Alyne by Rivini (Catherine) also come with a blush underlay and its absolutely gorgeous in person. My best friend tried it on last week and just WOW.

If I wasn’t wearing my grandma’s dress, I would be wearing a version of this Lazaro dress. I LOVE it so much, the color, the tulle, the belt, all of it. It’s my favourite dress ever, and it’s taking me alll of my willpower not to go try it on, so I don’t fall in love with another dress!

 

To be honest though, my grandma’s dress I’m wearing is a champange blush color. Pure white just isn’t my thing!
