Blackrabbit:  Absolutely! It doesn’t hurt to try! I knew I wanted a blush dress and tried on a few white dresses, but just didn’t get “the feeling”.  When I finally tried on the blush dress, my mom said, “That’s it! We’re done! Check please!” Go for it, girl! It’s your day 🙂

Your Mom can still have the thrill of buying her daughter’s wedding dress, but that shouldn’t include her dictating which dress you choose.  One would hope that the two of you have a realtionship where you could be honest with her about your preference for a blush dress without her being offended.

From the sound of it, you haven’t tried on dresses yet. Include blush, ivory and white when you try on dresses. You never know what will look good on you, and tug on the heartstings until you try it on.

Blackrabbit:  +1 what julies1949:  said. Why would a pink dress “humiliate” her? The first time I got married my mom encouraged me to wear an ivory dress (technically still white) but, because it matched the colors better, she didn’t think I should wear pure white.

If you are old enough to get married you should be old enough to make this choice.

Blackrabbit:  This is your wedding. I get not wanting to hurt your mother, of course, but this is your WEDDING DRESS. I tried on some BEAUTIFUL  white dresses, that were honestly probably more flattering on me than the one I chose, but I just felt like ME in my dress. and that’s how I want to feel on my wedding day: the prettiest, happiest version of me. I do have a suggestion for you though of one to try on, as I tried it on as well. I have HUGE boobs so the cut wasn’t as flattering on me, but I could NOT stop thinking about this dress once I saw it in a store: http://www.essensedesigns.com/stella-york/dresses#detail/5923

I had my heart set on a blush dress until I tried them on. I didn’t get the bridal feeling. I ended up with white. I’d wait until you actually try on dresses. Hopefully your mom will come around and support you no matter what your dress looks like. Good luck!

Blackrabbit:  I know what white is supposed to mean and I understand older generations being set in their ways but as you said you live together. If she was going to be humilitated by something I would think it would be that. I mean, if anyone at your wedding thinks you live together yet you’re still a virgin they are only fooling themselves. 

As a mom I also understand that wanting to buy your daughter’s wedding gown, so I can see where you don’t want to take the options from her, but I also understand that it will be my daughter’s day some day and they have to be able to have what makes them happy and comfortable. 

Like you said, try them on, maybe y’all will have one of those oh staged SYTTD, mom/grandmom changes their stubborn mind moments.

There are lots of blush dresses with a white or ivory lace overlay…. how about searching for that type of dress.  They look very pretty on.

My blush wedding gown was a very pale sort of peachy pink (color was called “Tea Rose”) with an ivory lace applique overlay that was more concentrated at the neckline so it almost looked white by my face.  I loved it and am still glad I picked it as my dress.

I also don’t get why your choice of wedding gown would humiliate her.  🙁

My dress is considered champagne but it has a slight pink hue to it. The pink is a little more subdued than a typical blush dress. Plus the lace top is ivory, so it’s not ALL pink-ish.

I think you should definitely still try some blush gowns on, both to make sure it is or isn’t what you want and to show your mom that they still look bridal.  Do some calling to the different stores near you to check out if they carry certain blush gowns you like or if they have any in the store in general to make sure that you’ll get the option to see some at your appointment.  The first shop I went to, I knew I wanted to try blush and was even considering tea length styles, but despite having a large collection of gowns, they didn’t have any in blush or tea length dresses for me to try.

Blackrabbit:  It took my mom about 5 minutes to realize I was in a a blush dress when I put it on. She was so overwhelmed with how it fit and the lace and everything else, that it didn’t cross her mind. The sales associate said then we could order it in white or ivory but then my mom even cut her off saying how the blush silk highlighted the ivory lace on top.

It’s completely different when you talk about dresses or show them pictures vs when you’re in a store trying them on and it’s something you love and they see it on your face.
