      Not at all, I was thinking of going a bright coral/orange color.

      One of my biggest pet peeves of brides is when they don't look like themself on their wedding day.. Like they get a prom do-even though they never wear their hair up, or wear a ton of makeup-when usually they go natural.. so if you normally wear red, then wear red, its you!!

        Because MOST brides do a French and I usually do a French, I was thinking I'd use my nails as my "Something Blue" opportunity... OPI has this really pretty color called "Moon over Mumbai" it is a really light blue-ish grey color.

          I agree! It is your day and so do what makes you happy! I will be going for a color over french too.

            yael- I love the idea of red!
            Something to think about.. what color is your bouquet? I only ask because if you have lots of orange then it may clash a bit in photos but if you have reds, whites, yellows and greens I think it would look gorgeous. (but.. maybe i'm a little picky ?.)

            I always wondered why everyone gets a french on their wedding day. Is it cause it looks "pure" or something? I like french manicures when I have a tan- which I will- so I may either do that or a pink but not super pale.

              I always choose some funky color...nevery something traditional...even "red" would be traditional for me. So, I plan to choose some shade of blue and make my nails my something blue. Also, blue is one of the wedding colors, so it fits all the way around.

                Thanks ladies!

                Yamille - my bouquet is all white (just calla lilies) so i like the idea of the color splash with my nails.

                Im happy you guys are all thinking other colors too :)

                  I agree with all the other previous posts! if it is YOU to do red... do it girl!

                  Myself, I am a french manicure queen, I never leave home with out it, and i love my toes painted in hot hooker reds and wild crazy pinks! my toes were HOT pink on my wedding day OPI "charged up cherry" they looked too cute with my teal blue dancing shoes!

                    I totally think you should keep with the red Yael! AND it will look awesome in your photos with calla lilies!

                      Yael I love the idea of doing colorful nails! Red would be smokin hot. I might just do pale pink for my nails but my toes I think I'm going to do pink with black polka dots on them :) I always strive to be different so why should my wedding be any different?!

                      DO IT!
