Dress Envy

By now, I’m sure everyone has admired the recaps of the recent Bridal Market (Southern Weddings has some great ones, if you missed it!), and are either pro-no-white-in-the-new-Vera-Wang-collection, or against it. It’s certainly odd for such an iconic gown designer to skip the typical wedding dress color, and I’m still trying to decide how I feel about it. So far, my conclusion is that I like the beige and don’t like the black–I’m a little too traditional to love any wedding gown that’s too different of a color! That being said, if I were ever to leap outside of my comfort zone and rock a colored dress, I know what color it would be…

The prettiest shade of sherbet, like this gown in a Style Me Pretty photo shoot. It’s feminine and romantic, and even though it’s not a white, it projects the same wedding-day-feel as a white gown would.

If you had to pick a colored wedding gown, what would it be? :)




  1. i wouldnt stray too far from white either. i still want to look like im at my wedding! not prom!

  2. That dress is stunning… I think I would wear something like that!!
    {This coming from the girl that is having an indian wedding – future hubs is indian – so I will be REALLY straying from the traditional white I’m used to!

  3. I’m with you-black is just too much for my taste! A high school pal of mine got hitched this past weekend and wore a gorgeous gown with bits of blue-it was so spectacular!

  4. I would go with BLUSH. as long as its light and has lots of tulle, I would be good :)

  5. I can’t do the black wedding gowns… some of the pieces would be pretty as evening gowns, but not for a wedding!

I would love to hear your thoughts!
