Lately I’m into the idea of a silvery wedding dress, for a few reasons. One, I have kind of an unusual skin tone with a lot of yellow undertones, and have a hard time with looking sallow. Silver is really a good color for me. Also, I like the different-but-not-too-different factor, and think detailing shows up really nicely on silver.
On the other hand…I want to keep things ‘mostly’ traditional. I like the idea of traditional with a little twist, but not totally unconventional. So just wanted to get a feel for general public opinion – where would a silver wedding dress fall on that spectrum in your opinion?
I put a few examples below just so you can get a feel for what’s out there in silver!

I tried on a platinum Sophia Tolli dress. I loved the color so much! It looked great and totally bride. That particular dress wasn’t the best style for me, and it just happened that the dress that I picked didn’t come in that color. Boo!

I think by going by what you’re saying, that the second dress you have up would be perfect. It’s kind of half and half. You got half silver and half white. And plus it’s super pretty 🙂

I think whether silver is "non-traditional" or not really depends on the shade – no one would bat an eyelash at that lovely light silver dress at the bottom.
I’m still dress hunting… can you post the designers of these wedding gowns? I especially love dress number two – it’s beautiful!

Ooo, thanks Doctorgirl, I have a new designer to look at now! And just to clarify, I’m not specifically trying to decide between the dresses pictured – just wanted to put up some examples of silver dresses so people had a visual.
Cellar Door, the designers are:
2. Maggie Sottero
3. Maggie Sottero
I love the style of all of these designers! I’m not sure how to describe it but they all seem to have a similar way of draping fabric. Kind of a more modern but very romantic look!
Also, if you like those, here are some of my other fave designers with sort of a similar feel:
Mon Cheri, Enzoani/Enzoani Blue, Melissa Sweet with Priscilla of Boston, Mon Cheri, Jolie Bridal, Impression Bridal, and Anjolique. Hope that helps with your search! They all have collections online that you can browse!

I love all of those dresses… and I think it kinda depends on HOW silver and how shiny the dress is. . . but if you love a silver dress, I say get it! Who cares if it’s non-traditional

I fell in love with a silver/blue dress but opted out b/c the cost was just a little too high for me. But thought I would share them with you.
The first one I tried on – simple but elegant and it feels wonderful on.

I’m actually going the silver route. I’ve been looking at every designer for about 2 months now. After looking at all of those, including all the silver satin ones from Maggie Sottero and Sottero & Midgley; I went for getting mine custom made by a local designer, b/c I couldn’t get the silhouette I wanted in Silver/Platinum, that and I didn’t want a satin gown.
Depending on how much you want to spend, there are several designers, one of my favorite is the Platinum collection from Priscilla of Boston. Another is this dress by KittyChen Couture. It’s stunning and when I called about if she does silver, the designer herself responded and sent out a swatch for me to see the color, which was perfect. Here is the dress that it comes in.
I thought I would warn you about the 3rd dress you showed from Maggie Sottero, is the Nouvel Lynette I believe with her other dress being Nouvel. That is the one I was buying, until I found out the Oceana (color) was an aqua blue/green more than silver. So just a heads up on that.
KittyChen – Legacy. This is the one she can do in a Silver/Platinum color.
Priscilla of Boston – the only reason I didn’t go for her, (I so desperately did) was cost, I just couldn’t talk myself into spending that much money for a wedding dress.
Good luck, and if you want more designers, let me know. I feel that I’m an expert on silver dresses now lol.

Fun Fact: In the 1500s-1700s wedding dresses were actually silver in England. It didn’t change until the mid to late 1700s.
