The red wedding dress conundrum

December 7, 2010

I think the truest wedding planning advice I’ve heard so far is, “You’ll change your mind a hundred times so just get over that now.”  It’s so true.

I’ve gone from black and white formal wedding (with me in a red dress making a grand entrance), to a very boring blue and green J. crew looking wedding, to a Spanish fiesta with lots of pinks and oranges, to an all-sunflowers-nothing-but-sunflowers wedding.  I’ve bought a wedding dress, returned it, almost bought one again on the spot that wasn’t returnable (thanks Mom, for talking me out of that) and said “Hmm, this is veeeery pretty, this could be the one!” to at least 10 dresses.

You could say I’ve changed my mind a lot.  Yeah, that definitely applies to me.

The red wedding dress is really the only thing from that list above that sticks in my mind.  I’ve already found my wedding dress (for a cool $380, ladies do yourself a favor and shop the sale section at Trudy’s in Campbell if you know what’s good for ya) but I can’t help but think how adorable a poofy little red number would be on the dance floor.

I was pretty much obsessed with this photo for a while:

Gorgeous, isn’t it?

Still has me thinking about getting a brightly colored dress for the reception.  At least I got to wear red for my Burning Man wedding 🙂

The other wedding that I’m in love with stylistically is Ketrin & Jonathan on FeatherLove’s blog.   She has an adorable poofy lime green number.

I’m sure other brides out there have toyed with the idea of a colored wedding dress, am I right?  A colored wedding dress automatically does so much to up your uniqueness factor that maybe you don’t have to spend time obsessing on whether or not you’ve seen that same exact font on hundreds of invitations before?  Does that even matter?  Not speaking from personal experience or anything.

    Did you ever find out the designer of that dress? I am searching for it.
