@PromiseRooster: my dress is ivory, but the sash is a champagne/blush color. the sample was actually a much darker ivory, but i’m glad my actual dress is a bit lighter/more white. i love the way the tones look together. very romantic and bridal but not all diamond white.

@PromiseRooster: My ceremony dress is black and cream (more black) and my reception dress is light blue. I didn’t really eliminate any colors from my search and looked at a lot of prom and quinceanera dresses that were “shortlisted.”

@clairebbbear: lol…if the whole virgin and white were the case, then I certainly had no business wearing pure white 😉

This is the dress my daughter will be wearing in January! Love the little bit of color.

@PromiseRooster: Angelina Colorusso. A London designer, check out her website, they’re beautiful. Unfortunately they were out of my price range, but they’re stunning dresses.

I totally would wear a dress with color, although I personally would stick to a lighter, more pastel color palette so it’s still “wedding-esque”. I think it’s fun and sometimes, more flattering to one’s skin tone than white, ivory or beige.
That said, I’m somewhat of an out-of-the-box thinker. I ditched the veil, the bridal party and incorporated a decidedly not-sentimental song as our proessional song.

My dress was ivory, it had a purple built in sash, and a purple train 🙂

@PromiseRooster: I really wanted a dress with color but I couldn’t find the one I wanted in my price range 🙁 I still loved my ivory dress, but I do have moments where I wish I had color, or even just a splash of color. I say go for it if you’re into it!

Mine is a pale silver blue. It tends to pick up the colour of any lighting or surroundings. Like when it came in and I went to the salon to try it on, it looked purple!

Before I bought my ivory linen dress, I desperately wanted a pale blue dress. I do prefer pastels over bold colors. And, personally, I prefer a dress that is all one color (even if it’s not a traditional bridal color) over one that has colored details. I’ve seen colored details done nicely (usually pastels or ombre), but I generally think they draw too much focus away from the rest of the dress.

My mother tells tales of when I was little and swore up one side and down the other that I wanted a black wedding dress (I was very into Laura Ingles Wilder’s works and her dress was black). She figured I might get around to red but would be quite surprised if I went with white in the end.
At this point, I’ve considered lots of options but I’m still angling for something very unique – even if I have to make it myself.
