I''m about to start seriously shopping for wedding dresses soon. I''m leaning towards not strapless, more of a v-neck look. I like really interesting backs and strappy upper backs. Anyway, that stuff''s not too important right now. I''m interested to see if anyone''s ever run across many colored wedding dresses. I''m not talking really bold colors, I''ve seen lots of those. And probably not even ones that are totally a solid color. But I was thinking recently about what I could look for in a dress that would make it a little more unique for me. I''m not one for outright bold things, but I like subtle things you still notice. I think a dress with pink tones, or that just hints at being pink but still mostly looks white, would be something I''d like. Maybe the same thing with blue also...?

Just curious if you guys have ever seen any, or what you think about that!

I found this one on a wedding website that a girl had worn, but I didn''t find where it was from. Sort of the look I thought would be nice and subtle though.

I think it's awesome! Thing2 just got a pink Amsale (right?) and it's gorgeous! Check out brides.com if you haven't already, you can search by color.

ETA: This one's pretty! Shown in rum pink.

Wow parrot tulips - that dress is gorgous!

Yeah strapless isn''t a huge deal at this point, it was just something I thought about in the beginning. If I found a fabulous one in a subtle color I liked, and it was strapless, I''d probably go for it!

Wow sunnyd that linked dress is gorgeous too! That rum pink is barely noticeable, maybe it''s just the picture, or maybe it''s actually that subtle in real life!

I''ll have to look for thing2''s dress on here...

I really like the non-traditional, subtle colors for wedding dresses. I''ve tried on a few that were light pink or a taupe-like in color. I thought they were very pretty and am leaning towards something like that.

Good luck with your search. Please post some pics!

ETA: not sure if you''re already seen it but here''s Thing2''s gorgeous Amsale: https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/my-amsale-dress-with-pictures-of-me-in-it.104433/
Thanks for the link panda! I couldn''t find it for the life of me. Just for future reference, how do you search for a thread by someone you''re looking for? All I did was try the search bar, but it doesn''t work very well when I try that.

Man, parrot - I just looked at the link again for that Maggie Sottero dress. It is so gorgeous! Hehe I think it''s a much bigger gown than I would picture myself in, but I definitely want to try on one like that just to *make sure* I don''t want one like that.

You''re welcome! Click the "search" link next to "Personal Section" near the top of the page. When the search page opens up, check off the box that says "Search Author" and then type in the username in the "Author''s Name" box. You have to use the exact username or else it won''t come up. I also put in as much info as I can, like "Amsale" in the "Search Word" box and use the drop down menu for the forum I want to search, in this case, BWW. Hope that helps!

Sounds gorgeous! I also thought of Thing2''s amazing dress as a great example of what you''re talking about.

Unfortunately, I have no dress researching skills, so I''ll have to leave it to the others to help you find something. I can''t wait to see what you pick out though!

Hi Luvthemstrawberries!

I tried this dress on - it was a maggie, or a sottero and midgley (and it was light pink)...i loved it - it was strapless, but it had a sweetheart neckline and a beautiful ruching on it. The back was a corsett and the skirt was a very slim A-line. If you like it, i''ll find the link for you - i think it was around $850 or so....

Not very subtle, but still a pale pink. I pulled this from Demetrios.
