This is me in my wedding gown complete with black and silver veil and black and blue hair.
So gorgeous!

Thanks! I love the dress, esp. since I can wear it out again and again. Lordy, I can't wait to have money so I can buy from Countessa Heather again. (her site is www.crimsonempress.com)

I say a woman should get married in whatever she looks good AND feels good in, even if that happens to be, cobalt blue, for example.
And that's exactly what I did! White makes me look awful. I married in royal blue satin.

I really love some of those dresses.. but since I already live in the traditionally "red light" district wearing one out may not be the best idea.. (the victorian dresses are gorgeous!)

I wore slate blue. Blouse and skirt.

Anyone who tries to say that a bride HAS to wear a certain color is daft.

I have to say I'm not as original as ya'll. I wore white, traditional white with A big white ruffley thing with a bow on the behind. LOL. My mom wore ivory for her 2nd wedding and I have to say it suited her complexion beautifully. I look about as pale as my dress.

But I have to say with the trouble my sil is having finding a maternity wedding dress I would encourage her to consider any color on the color wheel.

I have enjoyed your pics! Every bride is beautiful, white dress or not.


LOL about the poster who said it didn't look like a wedding unless it was a Sari.

I wore a yellow at the top fading to red orange at the bottom dip dyed silk dress.

But I don't even have a diamond engagement ring (It's Alexandrite!) so I'm not very traditional to begin with.

Tell your SIL to google maternity bridesmaid dress. I can't remember where it was, but I saw some online just the other day. Oftentimes you can get bridesmaid dresses in white/ivory, so it's worth a shot.

Here's one option. Comes in a variety of colors:

I think a bride can choose to wear whatever and whatever color she likes

I wore red. My mother called me a trollop (yes, she meant it), but in spite of that, the wedding took and we're still happily married almost 9 years later.





BTW, anyone who cares to can write my mom at notarealaddress@meanmom.net to tell her it is very NOT NICE to call one's daughter a trollop (or any other old-fashioned word that means slut, tramp, etc.) on her wedding day.

I fell in love w/the Velocity Vice dress. My MOH wore the Kayrukai Dress. The bustles are awesome but there is no way I could pull them off. This is the outfit I want next...

I wore green, but we don't have any pictures. When we have an actual wedding sort of thing (the other ceremony was more a legal one than a wedding per se), I have a lovely beige & brown off-the-shoulder dress with antique roses on it . . . beautiful dress. I plan to wear that one.

I say a woman should get married in whatever she looks good AND feels good in, even if that happens to be, cobalt blue, for example. The heck with folks freaking out if she's not in white/ivory, especially if she's a first-time bride. They're not the ones who'd look like crap in the pictures!

I'd especially be interested in stories of those of you MDC'ers who got married in anything BUT white/ivory/beige!
Can I just say (not having read any posts or anything, cause I'm being lazy)

The bride can wear whatever she wants!!!

It's THEIR day (hers and her new hubby's) so who freaking cares??

What are you implying?
post #138 of 161
I hope she wasn't implying what I think she was.
post #139 of 161
My answer: Heck yeah!

I had a very formal wedding and got married in a blood red dress with a long trailing black veil.

I had a friend who wore red, I wore dusty rose (but we had already eloped and it was more of a reception than a formal ceremony)
