    I’m not sure… on one hand I’m totally comfortable doing what’s not normal or traditional.  It’s weird enough for me to wear a fancy dress at all!  If wearing a white dress weren’t the “thing to do” it probably wouldn’t occur to me to do so, because I am always spilling stuff all over myself.  But I don’t think I’d be against it either.

    (man, I sound like a two year old… never wearing nice stuff… spilling everywhere!)

    @MrsDSoon2B:You should either retitle this or change the wording of the poll.

    The two questions contradict each other, so you might get some backward answers to the poll if people read too quickly.


    IE Yes, I would wear a different color dress if it were normal. Oops, the poll question was would I wear white? So, No. ( I did vote no, but I almost messed up, since the two questions are opposite.)


    I’m looking forward to the results of this!

    Absolutely! I actually had intended to have my dress made in black like the original photo but after deep thought I just didn’t have the cahonies to buck the norm. I also dont’ like wearing white. The only thing white in my entire wardrobe is 1 white shirt and 1 white tshirt. That’s it. It’s not a flattering color on me so I choose to stick to bolder colors. I think “tradition” has been engrained in brides for so long that even if a woman really wanted to wear another color she would face so much opposition it wouldn’t be worth the fight.

    If white were not the “norm” I almost definitely would not wear it. I don’t look very good in any pastel I feel like because I’m so pale! I lean towards richer colors like sapphire blue or dark purple.

    I don’t really know…It’s hard to say! I might still wear white…I think it’s crisp, clean, and very innocent. I normally gravitate towards black or white but I think black might be too emo for a wedding gown…

    Wouldn’t have even considered white if it weren’t traditional.  I don’t own any other white clothes.

    That’s a really good question – I just don’t know! I guess I’d choose a beautiful green, or sky blue, which is the colour I’ve actually asked my bridesmaids to wear.

    Nope…I probably would have picked an eggplant purple dress.  I love that color and would have loved to buy a fancy/pretty dress in purple.

    I would wear a red dress!!  That was what I originally wanted, but Fiance really wanted me to wear a white dress, so that’s what I got.  But I’m wearing 2 other traditional Asian dresses and one of them will be red, so it’s all good!

    this is a funny question–i’ve actually found myself drawn to a lot more white, ivory, and other neutral/light colors since being engaged/married. partly maybe because i spent awhile looking for outfits for wedding-related events, but just in general too. my mom actually made fun of me when she took me shopping for new “honeymoon” clothes (my summer clothes were really shabby) because i ended up with mostly light colors. so yeah, i don’t know if i would have originally thought of white, but i probably would pick it again if i was doing it all over 🙂

    If white weren’t traditional, I wouldn’t choose it. While I love the color, it gets messy way too easily. Or maybe it’s me that gets too messy. 🙂

    I chose no.  I would definitely have gotten like a siren red dress or something like that.  Me and White (or in my case, ivory) don’t mix!  I actually have on a white shirt today, just finished lunch, and am looking at several really decent splashes of sauce on my shirt. lol. I wonder if I can find a wedding day bib.
