You’re marrying the man you love so how could you not feel like a bride? Don’t let the stuff you see posted on here change your mind about the choices you made originally–stick with your gut feeling about what you want your wedding to be like! Most of these wedding traditions are so new anyway. 100 years ago women just wore their best dress regardless of the color!

Back in the day, people just wore their Sunday best probably because it was clean!  I bet you will look lovely on your day!

Your wedding will be all about you and your husband and your guests will love it because it reflects your personalities. Dont stress it all comes down to the love you both share and sometimes couples can forget about that and get lost in the details. I’m sure you will be a stunning bride no matter what the colour your dress may be.

I agree with the above posters, your wedding is a blend of you and your soon to be husband’s personalities!! If you feel like you made a mistake, what if you picked up a inexpensive white dress for the ceremony and just changed into the black one for the reception?

And super agree about years ago, no bride wore white…my grandmother wore a navy blue pant suit. My mother wore an off-pink. It’s all a matter of how you feel when you wear that dress…if it makes you want to get married, then wear it and marry your man!!

I had the same issue, going with a more traditional white dress or the fun sherbet colored ballgown. My brother told me to pick the dress that made me feel the most special for my wedding and not to go with the white one just because it was traditional. I think you’ll realize more and more that you made the right choice because the dress you chose is special to you.

@LindsayLoves:  This exactly.

I had the same concern (still sort of do). My plan was to wear a black lacey dress, but I accidentally found a traditional wedding dress that I fell in love with. I started regretting it immediately because we are having a casual, rock-n-roll wedding. To ease my worries, I took it to a seamstress and we talked about ways to funk it up so that it feels a little more me, a little less formal. I’m excited to see it complete, but I can’t lie, I still a little bit wish I had stuck to the original plan of a black lace dress. 

In the end, remember that just because it’s a wedding, it doesn’t mean you have to hold to all the wedding traditions, specifically a “wedding gown”. Wear what you feel beautiful in, regardless of color or style.
