  • I think it's awesome. People should, after all, have the dress they want at their wedding!
  • My wife was married in a peach coloured dress, the bridesmaids wore white. This was in 1968 and caused quite a stir in the small english community where I lived. I think its a great trend.
  • I think whatever the bride wants, she should wear. I am old fashioned so still prefer the tranditional white.
  • I think a bride should wear whatever makes her happy.. whether it's jet black or olive green. It's her day, and if a coloured dress is what she likes then she should wear it. Personally, I think traditional white is prettier and something you'd be less likely to regret, but I am a man and I'm gay, so don't pay me much attention.
  • Nice. I don't like the plain white blank dresses. They need more color in them. It's prettier (for girls), hotter (as boys would say).
  • Awesome! It is about time.
  • There was a white dress with pink accents I saw one (sposa bella??) that was stunning! It looked just like something a princess would wear. Its a nice thing!
  • I have never worn white as a bride. In fact I am trying to think when white as a traditional brides colour became 'tradition'. I can remember descriptions of weddings from various writings up until (I think) mid 1800's and brides wore colour then. I think that white became fashionable because it is supposed to symbolise purity/virginity, which of course shouldn't mean anything today. (I mean it shouldn't matter to anyone except the bride and groom if virginity is an issue). In medieval times I think any colour was acceptable, in fact brides dressed as richly as possible to show and encourage prosperity and red was a popular colour,
  • I have always wanted to have a red bridal gown, instead I ended up with a dusty rose. I think this should be a trend that continues with the color. It is more of a personal touch to the whole bridal scene and I like it.
  • I still prefer white for the bride. It symbolizes the purity of the bride and the love.
  • With so many people going into their second marriage while still young, I think the addition of color to a formal wedding dress is a nice touch. It defers from the traditional white (representing purity), but still holds on to the beauty of a bridal gown.
  • I have my wedding dress before i even have a groom. It is ivory with gold green and lilac embrodery it is stunning. It fits me and my life if it was white it wouldnt be me(i would be tarified that i would mess it up.
  • A lot of the dresses with color are extremely pretty, but I haven't decided whether I am more in favor of the traditional solid white or the white dresses with color on them.
  • I like the more traditional white or off white dresses, but I think it is the brides choice. It her choice, her day !
  • well white was for virgins, how many virgins do you see getting married these days. if you don't like the sound of color on the dresses you would hate to here my version of a wedding.
  • I am an Artist color is fantastic
  • Color is fine- but take off that stupid ribbon waist sash with the honkin huge bow in the back.
  • I think it's a good trend. When I got married in 1995 I wore white because it was "traditional". If I were to walk down the aisle again (I'm divorced)I would pick a dress with color without hesitation.
  • Thank God! I hate wearing white.
  • You run the risk of seeming like you're not a virgin.
  • just as lonf you dont over do it,than its ok.. its good to paly with color but you dont want to be so out there.. yo wanna look pretty and elegant and make people notice you. just you..
  • I think that the traditional is nicer, although they do need a splash of colour, maybe a patter in sequins on it, or a coloured trim, all and all I do believe that a person shoudl be able to do what they want for their wedding!
  • I've never heard of it, but I think I would prefer with none. But then again, it mustn't be so bad if it's a trend.
  • I'll be real honest here. I think it fits todays society! Anymore most women are not virgins when they get married. A white gown repersents the virginity of a woman. To me the more color the dress has the more the woman got around. A white dress has a meaning, so does a colored one.
  • Since white dresses are really only a very recent tradition in the western world (Queen Victoria) - and it's really only followed in North America (and then only since about the 1970's) - I'd say go with real tradition and go with colour. Most importantly, very few people look good dressed all in white - and I think brides would want to look good, not cliched.
  • Personal preference, it is fine by me
  • In three generations of women in my family, not one of them has worn white. My grandma wore blue, my mom wore blue, I wore bright red. I hate white, why would I have gotten married in a color i hate to wear? It's a special day, and everything about it should reflect the people getting married, not what is traditional...
  • I think it is great! White makes you significant in that usually only the bride wears white to the wedding, but adding color to it makes the bride stand out even more.
  • Whatever makes the bride happy. In foreign countries, they already have this tradition. White is beautiful, but so are other colors.
  • I love it. My dd is getting married in Sept and her dress has an emerald green sash.
  • I like it.
  • I think it's partially people trying to be fresh and different and partially the whole "white wedding" thing. It seems that very few people save their virginity for marriage these days. I'm not one of them either, I'll be honest. I'm a virgin, but I'm not waiting till marriage. I'm just waiting till I'm mentally and financially capable of caring for a child if that's what comes of it. Anyway! I'm going to be wearing all white, whether it's a white wedding or not. ;)
  • If I was choosing a bridal gown I would have to go for white with red details and trim. I've seen a few and they are beautiful
  • I love happy clothes. I've seen lovely dresses made out of layers and layers of ruffling calico and it was so special. I've seen natural colored leather and beautiful suits made from colored silk noile. Whatever she feel beautiful in is best.
  • Since a white wedding dress really doesn't reflect a bride's virginity any more, there's not reason for that symbolism to prevail. I love seeing something that the bride has made unique by adding her own personality to it.
  • I love it. Adding a touch of color really makes the details pop out, and looks absolutely gorgeous.
  • Frankly, I don't. Think of it, I mean.
  • I personally went for a classic white. But if someone really wants color, nobody should stop them. In a lot of other cultures, white is not the traditional wedding color. That's why my Chinese friend had a red wedding dress. So always be true to yourself when picking something for the big day!
  • I think it is great! It gives more personality and a bright feeling to a wedding. I say it is about time!!!
  • i find them strikingly beautiful and such a nice way to make your gown unique instead of run of the mill.
