Brides have not constantly worn white, and they don't have to today either. The white wedding dress was put into vogue by Queen Victoria in 1840 when she married Albert of Saxe. Prior to this time, dresses for wedding were rarely ever white. So if white is not for you, you'll be glad to hear that colored wedding dresses are one of the hottest wedding trends this year. From pale almost white shades of pink, blue & grey, to bold dark colors like red and black, colored dresses are returning with a lot of appeal.
If you are planning to use color for your dress, we have a number of ideas about colored wedding dresses to think on.
If you want a colored dress, but have a preference towards a simple look, then head to toe in one solid color is a great way to go. If you will be adding embroidery or beading, think about using a somewhat darker or lighter hue, to make it noticeable.
If you like a lot of different colors, then think daring! Using various colors for your dress will add a lot of attention and intrigue. You could go for multiple colored fabrics, layered up in ruffles, or sections on your dress. Or a solid color with colorful embroidery from head to toe.
Love the thought of color, but still feeling fond of a white dress? Then think about applying colored accents. Maybe it's a full-size bold colored bow, or just a segment of color. Or, maybe a splash of colored embroidery will add just enough color for you.
