Think it’s all about the big white meringue dress? Think again. Brides are increasingly opting for coloured gowns, shorter styles and even ditching the dress entirely! So if you’re looking for something a little different on your Big Day, why not get inspired by some of these brides?
If you’re easing into the idea of a colored gown, pale pink is a good place to start.
The great thing about wanting to wear a non-white wedding dress, is that you can extend your field of exploration much further and wider than your local bridal boutique.
A non-white wedding dress doesn’t strictly have to be a wedding dress and so you can incorporate designer dresses and evening or special occasion wear in to your shortlist of potential gowns, giving you much more choice ranging from affordable high-street designs to more pricey gowns.
For brides who need to wear red but prefer not to don a cheongsam or ao dai, Giambattista Valli’s high-necked, draped gown is a modern nod to traditional silhouettes. And should you want to wear some white, Naeem Khan’s bi-color gown or Marchesa’s embroidered mid-length dress is the perfect balance between color and customs.
