Our wedding is gonna be Viking themed, and on top of that, I think it would be fun to have a burgundy/maroon wedding dress Smiley smile our whole wedding will pretty much be non traditional. And it’s kind of perfect because I don’t think Viking brides typically wore white on their wedding day (which at the end of the day it doesn’t have to be historically accurate, just a fun theme to play with!) what do you think? Anyone here doing or has done a brides dress with any color BUT white or ivory?

    My sister wore a burgundy wedding dress 15+ years ago and it was stunning!


    Can you share inspiration pics? A Viking theme seems amazing! I wore white but my hubby & I had a surprise pirate reception and changed outfits during cocktail hour. So us!!! Guests loved it.

    I wanna keep my dress simple and easy like this one because I plan on wearing a fur shawl while walking down the aisle. But this is one example of many Smiley smile I am open to having a white dress, but it would be so cool to change it up and add my own flair to it

    I attended a Viking themed wedding, and it is hands-down my favorite wedding I’ve ever attended! The couple rented out a camp ground area down in the bayous in Louisiana and it was absolutely gorgeous. Very “middle of the wilderness“ feel. There was a dock, which the couple and their Officiant stood on over the water during the ceremony. Everybody dressed to theme, including guests. The dinner was modern food, but did include huge turkey legs, which made for some pretty great pictures LOL They also served mead, and the guest favors were horns to drink out of. And after dinner, they had axe throwing for guests. About half the guests camped out overnight, along with a couple, and the party continued late into the night. It was a blast! We all joke that nobody is ever going to top their wedding, so why even try

    First I have to say, that burgundy dress is gorgeous! And I think you should definitely have a braided Lagertha type hairstyle. I LOVE the idea of a viking wedding! I personally would have a medieval theme if it were completely up to me, but my dear FH says no way! It's so not him tho and we've combined our 2 personalities into a Punk Romance theme and I'll be in this black dress. Your wedding is going to be amazing....Congratulations and have Fun!! 🖤

    I considered a red ball gown for our vow renewal but my friend photographer talked me out of it. Think about looking at these photos and videos 20-30 years from now - if that’s how u want to remember ur wedding - cool amazing idea - but if u want a more timeless memory - white or ivory it is - well for me anyway
