I’ve got a question for you all. I’ve just started planning my wedding for next year (September 2013) and I’m looking at dresses. I was just wondering what you all think about colors.
Based on my height, body type, etc (I’m 5’7, size 18 dress, hourglass/slightly pear shaped), I was thinking of going strapless. The thing is, I’ve got lots of tattoos on my upper body. So pretty much no matter which color I go with, I’m not going to look traditional.
http://www.lightinthebox.com/a-line–sweetheart-chiffon-evening-dress-with-beading-draping-inspired-by-selena-gomez-at-emmy-awards_p67906.html – This is the dress I was thinking of going for. It’s very me and the price is amazing. What are some opinions on color? Should I go for traditional white, or something else? Like I said, I’m not gonna look traditional no matter what, so I may or may not go for an “off-the-wall” color.
P.S. I’m a cool skin tone: dark brown hair, blue eyes, pale skin…if that helps at all. Thanks! 🙂

That is a gorgeous dress. As of late, more and more gowns are in colors–I think Vera just introuduced a line of reds and purples, so it wouldn’t be out the realm of possibility.
I assume you know that LiTB is a Chinese replica gown company, so I recommend doing your research before you place an order.

Have u decided on your budget, venue, the style and colors of your wedding? I would take care of that first before buying a dress if you have not. I made a huge mistake by not taking care of that first. I first bought a traditional a-line strapless ivory gown and it was not me plus the venue we had decided on was outdoor and completely non-traditional. I got dress regret and had to end up buying a 2nd dress all because I made that mistake. However, I am very pleased with my 2nd decision. My new dress is a spaghetti strap (I never in a million years thought I would go with this dress by the way) ivory and peach ballgown. This dress reflects my inner self so much! So if you want to go with color then go for it! Here is a pic of my dress:

That dress is gorgeous!!! I really like the gray color that’s shown, it’s very elegant. Given your hair and eye color, I think lilac would be beautiful too.

Carnival Bride – Yeah, I do know about LitB. One of my best friends got her wedding dress and bridesmaids dresses there and they were all really gorgeous! But thanks for making sure I knew.
lindsayl06 – My budget’s not going to be very big to be honest, in fact since we’re having two ceremonies (a small one in Washington state, where I’m from, and a small one in the UK, where he’s from), I’m doing a lot of it myself. Decorations, favors, etc etc. I’m thinking I’d like the venue outside or in a conservatory. So I think a ballgown or something really huge is out of the question. LOVE that dress by the way.
lhiester – Thanks for your input! I do like the silver color as well.
