Hi everyone!!

Are any of you going to be wearing a coloured wedding gown other than white, ivory, cream, etc? I am considering this, but I know it would be so different!

    My wedding dress is white, but I have found to love wedding dresses of different color! I was looking at a dress that was blush and thought it was absolutely stunning (:

    I really wanted a sapphire wedding dress, but my husband wanted something a bit more traditional. So we compromised. I had an iceblue dress with a white lace overlay.

    Mine is silver gray. I was hoping for a charcoal. But I liked what I found and was ready to be done.

    I wanted one with lavender accents but it's hard to find, my mum said if I bought a traditional one she'd pay for it. So I got a traditional one. 🤣

    Hello! My fiance wanted me to do the traditional white gown thing, as we've never really had any of the "traditional" wedding things in our previous marriage(s), and he wants to give us all the experiences so we wouldn't look back and think, "I wish"..

    But I'm not a "traditional" woman😏(we're both in our late 40s, with mostly grown children).

    SO... I found a white gown that fits me beautifully AND suits me perfectly, but it's not JUST white. Our wedding is to be in a Gorgeous Italian Garden (at The Maymont in Richmond, VA), and I practically live in my garden at home. Gardening soothes my soul almost as much as he does (which says a lot for him. I'm practically a poster child for ADD), so when I found this dress, that was it! The floral part is an overlay. The white dress underneath has a beautiful glow (silk) to it. I had originally wanted an elegant, silver gown (my hair is bright silvery-white), but this was So much more fun, more Me, and made me feel beautiful in it, unlike the enchanting, but rather stuffy, silver gown.

    My dress is 2 toned. It is mostly white but there is navy blue in the straps and train. I'm also getting a navy blue panel put in the back which will have ties over it in the wicklow county tartan ribbon which i'm also using for tying the bouquets. I'm also adding white sheer sleeves with navy blue cuffs. There's quite a few options that give a little bit of color without having to go all out. I love navy blue but dont feel like matching my FMIL.

    If that’s what makes you feel special and so “you” on your day then do it! It’s different but I think that’s why it’s also more memorable.

    I’m getting a white or ivory dress (still haven’t decided) but having the bottom dip-dyed an ombré purple into blue for my wedding. I’ve always loved colour but I still want to be somewhat traditional. So, this was the best choice for me.

    Good luck deciding! ^_^

    I have looked at different color dresses. I have found that I like them more. My colors are burgundy and black. The dresses I have looked at are burgundy and white. I have been married before but my FH has never been married and that is why we are doing a wedding. So alot of stuff isnt traditional and am I doing stuff the way I want it. Not someones else way if I really like the way I want it

    I went with blush! I never pictured myself in a sparkly, pink, ball gown... but I fell in LOVE as soon as I put it on!
