      I'm not shopping for my wedding dress until summer, but I am looking almost exclusively at short or tea-length styles. I was pretty torn, but that is FI's request, and the more pics I look at featuring that style, the more I like it.

      I have just looked online for coral dresses, and briefly in stores. I only have one bm and one moh. I really want to get their dresses just in a regular store or online to save some cash (I am buying them). It is hard to find actual coral though... things seem to be too pink or too orange. Just have to keep looking though - I have time!

      It does seem to be a hot colour this year though, so hopefully that helps.

        I'm not a coral bride...but I'm doing orange and fuschia...  I wanted orange dresses, but a tropical mango color orange...I had a hard time finding something I liked so I ended up going with fuschia.

         

        My dress is an Allure too.  I went with Allure C175...I posted a pic in the beginning of this thread...I love it...  Here is a more recent pic of the look I'm going for... this is from my first fitting...I still need the alterations to be done...

            I am also thinking of finding some vintage handkerchiefs and embroidering them myself with first names for my bms, and with "mom" and "dad" for them. Maybe one for FMIL too? I do not think FI or his dad or best man would like one though. But I can just imagine my sister dabbing at her eyes a little... :) Very vintage.

                That dress is beautiful! And your BM's dress is exactly what I'm looking for, but coral and short. How did you make your style board?

                 

                Peach you're right. Coral is getting VERY popular. I'm sure there will be more options this summer! And I love, love, love your hankie idea. I might steal that!

                 

                Venus, you're dress is GORGEOUS! Looks fabulous on you!

                    this might not be the shade of coral you want, a bit too pink perhaps
