    I’ve watched some of the bride shows they have on tv and have seen brides in different colored dresses other than white/ivory. anyone that knows you will know you are not a girly girl and will expect you to be yourself for your wedding.

    Maybe you could get one of the dresses that has colour accents. I’ve seen quite a few of them. Some of them have white tops and like a pink bottom or the other way around.

    how about some white and some green and pink like your bridemaids. like a pink and green polkadot sash or mid section.

    you can do WHATEVER you want. though everyone will give your their opinion, whether you want to hear it or not. especially if you’re going the non-traditional route. you could try a champagne dress, or maybe a pale pink (yes, even with strawberry blonde hair), with your BMs in a darker pink. bottom line–do whatever makes you feel beautiful!

    OMG! Wish the polka dots and odd colors…a non traditional dress will fit right in! Why don’t you go for bourgese brown. Geez.

    Good luck.

    Do what feels right for you! My sis is getting married this year and is wearing green I think. She just didn’t feel right in a big poofy dress. It’s your day!

    Maybe if you want to stick with ‘tradition’ get a dress that is white with color accents

    I think a white spring dress with beaded and or stitched pink and green flowers on it. THen you will have the bridal white but also have the color that you want in it. It is your wedding do it your way

    If you go to the David’s Bridal website, they have a section where you can pick different color than white dress for the bride. I am planning a wedding myself and found it very helpful. Hope this helps and congratulations.

    If you want to stay traditional but compliment your coloring, try a dress with more of a “gold” or “butter” undertone. They would match your skin and hair nicely. But if you want to break with tradition (and I think if you’re doing polka dots, then you can handle being non-traditional 🙂 you could go with a mint or even chocolate gown. I think pink, green, and brown would be a really good combination.

    I’ve seen in magazines (i’m from Australia) that they have wedding dresses in Light pink, blue. One’s are white but have a little colour to them such as a little. One had red roses on it and green vines as well. As long as it looks like a wedding dress then it shouldn’t matter what colour it is.

    Right now David’s Bridal has a lot of color stuff going on with weddings. Try going into one of their stores and talking with a consultant. They have all kinds of dresses for all kinds of formalities.

    That’s our date, too!!! Congrats!

    I would try a champagne color dress. It’s a little bit darker than ivory so it may match your skin tone better, but you will still look like a bride. If you go someplace like David’s Bridal, they should have quite a few to pick from. I know the one I got in ivory also came in champagne.

    OMG! You should so wear pink. Talk about priceless. The looks on your guests faces, especially since your not a girly girl. Nobody is going to expect it.
