One of the most time-honored traditions of weddings is the long, white wedding gown. And while the iconic dress is likely to remain a dream of young women, there is also a move towards a bold break with tradition – colored wedding gowns. We have already begun to see brides choose varying lengths and styles of gowns, as well as adding colorful sashes and shoes. But from blush tones to vibrant hues, colored gowns may be the next exciting trend. How do you feel about hanging up the white gown in favor of a splash of color?
Pale pink and blush wedding gowns allow brides to venture into color without too much of a break from tradition. Whether you choose an ivory or white overlay over a blush sheath or opt for a pure pale pink gown, the result is elegant and sophisticated, without departing drastically from custom. Add beading or shimmer for a truly elegant look. Champagne dresses, which shine with a touch of gold, are another popular choice.
The fashion runways have been featuring colored gown for several years now, with colors ranging from lavender to baby blue and mint green. The style of the dresses often remains distinctly bridal and traditional, allowing the color to truly speak the vision of the designer. Some have even ventured into very bold areas of primary colors like green or royal blue. These are the boldest of choices – but if your wedding will be attended by elderly relatives, you may want to prepare them for their sweet granddaughter walking down the aisle in a red wedding dress!
Some brides are also choosing to mix it up, perhaps a traditional white bodice with a pastel, flowing skirt; or a colored dress with a traditional white lace overlay. Some of the very boldest styles even exhibit patterns.
As the world continues to search for the new and different, we expect to see more of the non-traditional gown. But one thing is always certain – no matter the color of the gown.
