a not so white wedding...

A few seasons ago my all time favorite wedding photographer Erich McVey did a styled shoot with model Courtney Bryant on the Oregon coast.  Courtney wears Portland designer Claire La Faye's stunning blue-grey wedding gown poetically named Swan Song. The images spawned a flurry of interest in colored bridal gowns in both my bridal boutiques. Oh yeah…did you know I own two bridal boutiques? 
Claire's dresses are featured at my beautiful downtown bridal shop The English Dept. I highly recommend you come by and check them out.
 However, if your heart and budget is set on a vintage wedding dress,  Xtabay has some really beautiful and budget friendly options…..

This 1950's pale blue tulle prom dress would make a lovely wedding dress and even came from the old bridal salon at Meier & Frank. It most likely served as a bridesmaid dress in the 50's but today would make a beautiful wedding dress. Available to purchase in our here in our Etsy shop.

The color blush pink has been really popular in bridal for a few years now. This ethereal 1950's evening gown would make a beautiful bridal dress! Sold.

I love this little 1950's tiered dress with lilac sequin sprinkles on top, it would be adorable for a garden wedding! Purchase here in our Etsy shop.

Rachael tries on a robins egg blue lace wedding gown in the palatial Xtabay Bridal dressing room, really it's bigger than my house. Details here in our Etsy shop.

 This sweet celadon green strapless 1950's gown would also make a lovely wedding gown. Available here in our Etsy shop.

So if you want a little color on your wedding day, we've got you covered!
