Wedding gowns with color?

Hi, everyone!


What’s everyone’s take on wedding gowns with a hint of color? I’m asking because I’m still planning to try on the HP “Arlo” gown (this is one of the very first gowns I posted about a while back) because I’m on the hunt for a gown that’s pretty and will go perfectly with my wedding ceremony setting (the beach/ocean). The Arlo gown has a touch of blue to it and I absolutely love it! And the beading on the bodice reminds me of seashells and pearls. I’ve seen this gown on many “real brides” and it’s so beautiful. I know there are some out there who would never pick a gown like this in a million years, plus I’ve heard that gowns with some color to them look more like prom dresses than wedding dresses but honestly, if the gown looks great and I feel beautiful in it, I won’t even be thinking about that! Not to mention, this dress would go wonderfully with my wedding colors (coral pink, ice blue, and white)! Would you consider a wedding dress with some color to it? Wedding gowns with color? 1

    I actually love the idea of a wedding dress with a hint of color! I think it makes it unique and fun, and this gown still looks bridal to me.

    I like the touch of color. I feel like a lot of wedding gowns just look so similar So the touch of color really makes it stand out

    Those are beautiful but I don't think of them as colored, because it's still just a darker shade of white. To me, a colored dress is a bright/bold pop with the top/skirt or the entire dress in a vivid color. Offbeatbride.com has many of those.


    White is a fairly new color for brides in the scheme of history introduced by Queen Victoria in the 1800s as a symbol of wealth while everyone else wore their best colored dress. White = virginity is a complete misconception with no basis in fact. Also not everyone can pull off white/ivory/pastels without looking washed out.

    I think wedding gowns with a hint of color have become just as (if not more) common than white dresses these days. I went to 6 different bridal boutiques trying on dresses, and most (i’d say 2/3) of the dresses at each store had some sort of color to them; whether it be a different shade for the lining under lace, or a different shade of tulle in the skirt, or colored beading, etc. I think people have finally realized that adding a touch of color really makes the unique details of a dress pop more; as opposed to all white, where the details blend and get lost. Plus, shades of white don’t look good on sooooo many people (myself included). Adding a touch of color makes a world of difference for those skin tones!

    I am getting married on the beach/ocean too!!! And my wedding dress looks exactly like what you are looking for to wear as your wedding dress as well. I am obsessed with sparkles so my dress sparkles in the light and has a hint of a shimmery silver which makes it so beautiful. Love the dress you are looking at, it will go perfect for the beach wedding.

    I think it is a beautiful dress. However, I feel like some colored dresses look more like something you'd wear to the prom than a wedding.

    This dress is stunning! I think it reads more formal ball/gala than wedding, not really because of the color though -- since so many dresses now have different undertones. Not sure what's throwing me off but it's gorgeous regardless!

    My dress also has color to it. I knew I didn't want a pure white colored dress, mainly because of having such a fair skin complexion so I didn't want to look like a strip of white out. Lol
    I do love the coloration of that dress, definitely worth trying it on especially with it going so well with your colors!

    BEAUTIFUL dress! I love dresses with color. My dress has a hint of a light dusty mauve color. It matches my FH pants of a mauve color and our personalities lol. That dress is gorgeous, go for it!

    Wow! Thanks for all of the love on my post, Everyone! I'm glad that there are a lot of pro-colored wedding dress lovers here. Smiley smile That's why I love HP gowns the most, her gowns are so unique and pretty, especially the ones with color! A lot of her ivory gowns also have the cashmere lining underneath so that adds a slight blush/beige color and gives a lot of dimensions as well. I can't wait to try some on!!

    It's a gorgeous gown, and I really love a hint of color. My gown is a very pale champagne ivory color with gold glitter throughout. It's subtle, but I'm IN LOVE with it, it feels very fairy-like with the glitter. White is so cliche, a little bit of color makes it so much more memorable and unique and special.
