    Hi everyone
    I was hoping that people might be able to help me.

    I HATE dresses! lol and getting married 1st Dec 09.

    I have found a dress that is OK. TBH i dont think I will EVER find a dress that I LIKE!
    The thing is, the dress is ORANGE! They dont do white as it's in the Bridesmaid section. I dont think I could have orange as my dress!

    The thing is, I cant seem to find that STYLE in white that is OK!

    Here is the link to the dress: Monsoon Accessorize - Bridesmaid

    Can anyone recommend other places to look? Preferably in UK

    Many thanks!

          If you really hate dresses, don't wear one! :)
          What about a classy pant suit or something you're more comfortable in? It's your wedding, change the rules and have it your way!

            Hey everyone!

            Im not a girly girl that likes dresses, skirts, wears makeup very often etc! Since the age of 4 I refused to wear dresses and the like!
            I did think about wearing a trouser suit but thought I would look a little odd! lol

            My OH would love to see me in a dress and said that I only have to wear it for an hour or so, whereas he has to wear a ring for the rest of his life!! (he doesnt do jewelry) So we are both compromising!

            But I think I have found 2 dresses that could work for me. Wouldnt have these colours tho! They are plain, simple and not too girly! lol

            After Six Bridesmaid Style 6554: The Dessy Group

            What do you think?

              I LOVE the After Six dress... its simple and gorgeous! Looks like there are lots of colors including white and you could even have a different trim color if you wanted. I think the most important thing is that whatever you wear you are comfortable in it and it makes you feel beautiful.

                  Hello !

                  First of all I must say that I LOVE LOVE Monsoon. It's one of my favourite shops and I buy the whole shop every time I get the chance to fly to UK (there's one in Gatwick airport, convenient !!!!).

                  Well, my question is, why don't you want an orange dress ? Honestly, the only important thing is that you like your dress. Do you know that Indian get married in red ? I recently went to a wedding where the bride was in brown. My sister in law got married in red. Another bride on this forum got married in Vegas in blue ! If you like this dress, go for it ! And have your BM wear white !

                  Now of course, if your mind is set on white... then why don't you try something different ? Like a white linen trousers suit ?

                  The rule in weddings in that - there are no rules ! Or better said : it's the brides rules You like the orange dress, orange it will be !

                  Have a look at this (more on colored bridal gowns) :

                      December 1st is my birthday!
                      I agree that it would be ok to wear a colored dress. Especially for a DW!!! If you want to wear white, there are plenty of wedding dresses designed specifically for destination weddings. Light, airy and comfortable. You just have to keep searching. I know a girl who bought her dress from the prom section of a department store.
                      Good luck!!!
