So, I'm getting married. Yay! It's going to be very DIY, but I can't decide about my dress.  I know I'm not going to be able to sew it, but I'm going to try to find more talented friends.  Anyways, I'm a big fan of the red dresses I'm seeing.  However, my fiance is a bit more traditional than I am.  I've been thinking of a good compromise and think I have an idea: a red, floor-length, gathered dress with a removable, cream-colored, train.  The train would actually meet in front and go from right under my bust to my waist, and the lacing would be in the back. That would leave me with a very lovely princess-like dress with a red bust and red part down the fri\ont of my skirt.  Does that sound like a feasible idea?

I think it's perfectly acceptable to have a coloured dress, and as long as you look traditionally elegant your man shouldn't mind. Your idea sounds like a lovely compromise and a way of introducing the colour.

I would love to make my own dress, but I don't think I'll be able to. My plan is to buy a very plain, simple (CHEAP!) dress and modify it. I'm thinking this would be easy to add beads or sequins to, change the colour of the ribbon, or even sew a different fabric over the existing panel.
