Hello, I am new to this group and I am newly engaged. I am 55 and I have nearly all grown children. M question is, would cream be an acceptable color to wear?

    Aw, how sweet. I would think a church would be fine with any shade of white (ivory, cream, etc). Only if you wanted to wear black or red or some other bold color might a church have an issue (but it would also depend on the church I would think).

    You can wear any color you want. There's no rules at all.

    Cream is perfect. My Boaz and I were 66/56 at the time we were planning, widower/widow remarrying I wore a grey/silver wedding dress (with illusion shoulders and arms so I could look sexy...haha but covered), he wore a black tux. The remaining colors were burgundy, black and white and we married at our church. A colored gown is appropriate. Sidebar: I so wanted to wear a dramatic flowing black gown (haha) but I'm sure some of our members would have fainted, so I went grey/silver instead.

    Congratulations on your engagement. Yes, cream is a completely acceptable color to wear. You should wear whatever you feel most comfortable and beautiful in. Happy planning!

    I've been married twice and chose pure white for round two because it's flattering on my skin tone. That was the only factor with my color choiceSmiley smile Congratulations!
