My sister wore something similar to pic related to her wedding, except less beige/more green. The wedding was fairly small/intimate, so she managed to stand out beautifully despite not wearing traditional white.
If you want to go full white and make it more wearable later with dying, a good option might be a shorter (kneelength) wedding dress.

God I fantasize about my wedding dress all the time.
I want a short and sweet dress, that I'll be able to wear again after the wedding… But on the day of the wedding it will be accessorized grandiosely, with a long and sheer cape with shoulder clamps/pads, maybe golden or decorated with big white roses, or looking like they're made of golden feathers (in a fantasy-like style); a sheer fabric belt tied in a pretty bow, golden accents and lace layers. Also I dream of a tiara or a gorgeous flower crown to top it off.
I probably won't get married before at least 6 years, so I'm dead set on learning how to sew before then, so I can make it myself. I mean, I'll probably ask help from my mother and sister, but it would be probably less expensive than getting a seamstress considering how ambitious my ideas are. Anyone else thinking of working on their own?
Also what do you guys think about splurging on a really expansive dress? I have pretty expansive taste and all, but I tend to look at cheap dresses because in the end they can look just as great as some designer princess dress, maybe the vibe will be different or the details cheaper… But spending over $2000 on something you'll wear once seems like such a waste to me.
Pic related because cape>>83676
That's awesome. Patterns on a wedding dress are not a common choice and it just makes it more special in a way.

I know how over the top it is, but if I ever get married I want to do a really crazy fantasy style wedding. Think "The Night Circus" as a theme. That one Peter Pan guy and his wife Dorothy had an amazing wedding for their budget, imho.
Hence why I like dresses like this. I want everyone to wear really fun, costume-y stuff to my wedding, as long as it's well made. I wouldn't trust this website to make my dress, especially because even in this image you can see it's cheaply made, but id hire a good tailor to make something similarly kooky/gaudy for me.

So cheesy but man I love this shit. I'd hire entertainers as well, like circus acts. Contortonists, fire breatherss etc. And a gourmet popcorn bar.
I know it's not original but it's what I like. Panic at the Disco probably influenced me too much, as a kid.

Also, gypsy wedding dresses. Sometimes they really look like shit, and sometimes they manage to pull off the magic elf princess thing. I'd wear the fuck out of this and feel very sparkly.

If I ever get married, I'd want to wear something pretty and comfortable and little more low key than most wedding dress I see around me. I love big extravagant or hyper girly dresses but I wouldn't feel like myself in them.
I would like my hair to be either low or barely up, like in a messy low bun with some hair strands in the front, I'd want some cute white flowers in my hair too.
When I was a teen I wanted to get married barefoot… I still think it would be cute, but, idk, maybe I'll be a civilized person and wear some shoes.
I like the idea of being a pretty flower child bride.

i been waiting for a thread like this. pic related is mine. it's by a japanese brand kuraudia, the brand that made the disney princess wedding dresses. these are usually only available from rental stores in japan, but i got mine for 10,000 yen (~$100 USD) from a girl who bought it from the rental shop. it has a tiny tiny bit of ripped tulle that i'm repairing, but other than that it's a steal! they cost a ton to rent and the girl said she bought the used one for $7k. i think that combing y!jauctions is a great way to get a cheaper dress that isn't going to be available in your country!

I LOVED Samira Wiley's dress. Her wife's jumpsuit is the sort of thing that sounds daft on paper but I think it kind of worked? I like that she had a cape instead of a train.

when i worked with wedding gowns i was constantly trying them on, and although i'm not a huge fan of the pearl and crystal bling around the collar and waist, the peter pan collar itself and the long cuffed sleeves were so incredibly unique and beautiful. this is actually a body suit with a detachable skirt. i'm not someone who plans on getting married, but damn if this didn't make me feel beautiful.

I was always kind of in love with the dress kate hudson wore in bridewars.
It has a super poofy tulle skirt (so that's probably hit or miss for some ppl) but I love the bodice a lot. the lace, the neckline, the ribbon.
it stimulates my aesthetics.

and since it was mentioned here, thought it was def worth to post it here because I personally loved this look too.
I mean I don’t love the dress but it’s not about what anyone else thinks. If you find a dress and you feel beautiful in it then it’s perfect. It’s all about what makes you and your partner happy.
(I do really love the grey ribbon accent tho)>>83680
The cape sounds majestic anon. Definitely worth learning to sew! It’s pretty easy, threading the machine is honestly the hardest part, and it could save thousands of dollars. >>83683
Sounds so much more fun than a traditional wedding. Fire breathers instead of flower girls and shit, hell yeah.

I want a simple lace dress with no frills, poof or trains, that I can wear with flat shoes or a small heel. A few years ago I saw how shitty and uncomfortable my clothes and shoes were compared to my bf's and swore never to force myself into discomfort for the sake of beauty ever again, especially not on my big day when I'll be feeling bad enough from all the extra attention.

It's so hard to find EXACTLY what I want in a dress and I don't know if I could afford it anyway. I imagined something with a detailed corseted sort of top and lots of flowers culminating around the waist and fading out into voluminous layers of light tulle. But dresses like pic related are top tier to me too

I found it here!http://glamourdaze.com/2013/04/be-a-1920s-gatsby-bride.html
They named the designer and linked to bhlnd. I poked around a bit and found the name of the dress.
Catherine Deane, Litahttps://www.bhldn.com/Bride/Lita-Gown-Ivory/
For a whopping $2400. Shop around on bhldn and the designer’s site for similar styles for inspiration!
You should look around for vintage, 1920s inspired dresses. You could also try second hand websites where women could be selling theirs
The designer has one that’s just as beautiful and almost a grand cheaper. If you added a lace shawl or something? Or maybe 2.4 is no big deal to you and then I say go for it! I do particularly love the silk of the Lita. Hope I helped some!
I love your suggestions, and thanks so much for finding a source anon!
Tbh I’m a massive tightass and my plan is to make my own dress. I already sew and have a few years to master the fabrics, and to have a dream dress for thousands less seems like a win-win!
If someone has the money and wants to, then yeah blow a few grand on it but imo it’s wasteful. I’d much rather invest my time than money we could put towards a house or new car.

No problem! There’s one retroactive condition to my help haha you’ve gotta post your finished dress here! It sounds awesome. If I was talented, then I would make my own as well. I have a skilled friend I could ask but it’s a HUGE task. Saying that, it’s been my dream to get married in a Vera Wang dress.
And I know 2.4k sounds like a lot but I also know some people who view it like $240. Some people’s perspective on money gets twisted. I know someone who spent more on a car than I did on college. If it’s the dress of their dream and within their means, I don’t see a problem. I understand people wanting to support designers they admire. I just did a quick browse of their site and the designer was raised in South Africa so a portion of the sales goes to a South Africa charity which is pretty neat.
Looking back on my wedding pictures, I hate how my dress looks in photographs. I hadn’t even considered that the skirt might look shiny.
I wish I would have gone with a vintage style dress without a train. And I hate that the tailor insisted on sewing padding into my bodice. I didn’t want my boobs to look bigger. I wanted to look like myself, in a beautiful dress. Sigh. I guess I can renew my vows and wear something like >>84573

can i use this thread to ask for advice on what to wear for my wedding? i will just be going to the courthouse but kind of want to feel a little pretty, but feel a full on dress will be stupid. it's just going to be me, my fiance, and a witness and we'll probably just go home afterwards, so do you guys think this is too overdressed?
i'm tempted to just go in jeans and a t shirt but i kind of want for my fiance to remember us getting married and idk, remember a nice image of me, if that makes sense?
what would you guys recommend?

i don't even know if i can find that exact dress myself (like, in that color). i'll be happy just to get one in the same cut, so long as the fabric isn't too flashy. netaporter and modaoperandi, etc, all those places sell out of her stuff so fast, so i'd recommend like secondhand high end sites or ebay usually has them, but not too many. it's a cocotte vivienne westwood dress. pic related is another type of cocotte dress.
Wear whatever colour you like.
It’s only traditional because Queen Victoria wore one and Victorian women did everything she did. Before that you wore your Sunday best on your wedding gay and to church the next week.
Sure not in every culture but it’s popularity in modern western culture it absolutely is.
The purity of white was important in baptism, but unless you were exceptionally rich you didn’t own white anything. It was hard to launder without yellowing and was worn as a sign of wealth and status because they could afford conspicuous consumption. Even then the white gown was almost certainly going to be rework, then dismantled and resewn into a new garment. Queen Victoria had her wedding dress repurposed.
It wasn’t until after WWII that it was commonplace for brides outside of exceptionally wealthy families to wear white.
Please tho, give me your alternate history based on nothing
