You know, it’s all right to not wear white on your wedding day these days. In fact, many brides are now shying away from the pure colour in favour of all kinds of other hues. I’m all for a break from tradition!

I found so many incredible blush-toned dresses on Etsy. They’re so, so feminine, and just perfect for a bride who wants something slightly off the norm, but who doesn’t want to stray too ‘way out’. A flirtation with the offbeat, if you will.

Here’s the treasury, followed by some close-ups of my absolute favourites:

This dress by Alison Dahl Kelly of Dahl NYC is listed as a party or bridesmaid’s dress, but I think it’d make the sweetest frock for a youthful bride. Or an eloping one! There’s something really young and carefree about it. I love this.

Jill Prettyman’s (of Be Something New) vintage lace, 1950s, blush dress is so ethereal. I think the model here looks like a little woodland fairy. It’s such a magical dress. I love the mitts that go with, too. A fabulous vintage outfit with a modern feel.

This is one gorgeous and summery dress by Jeannie Edfort from her Etsy shop Glory by Jeannie Lee. The fullness of the skirt part is perfectly balanced by the intricate lace top to create something that is on the right side of floaty. The low-cut back is a touch of genius, too. A bit of flesh, but in a virtuous way.

A dress with marabou feathers in blush pink is a sure bet to get you in touch with your bohemian princess side. A touch of the boudoir in the feathers and flowers, it’s a look that is seductive and innocent all at once. Claire La Faye‘s style is incredibly romantic, and her shop is brimming with enchanting gowns.

Such a beautiful and simple wedding dress by Ieva of IJCreations, it really opens the door for you to go to town on the adornments, or just keep to its simplicity: either way will have you feeling like a queen. The dress belongs to a collection called Free Spirit, and that is exactly the mood it conjures up. Gorgeous.
