As far as wearing a white wedding dress is concerned, trends are definitely changing, with a wide variety of colours available today for brides who choose not to wear the traditional white.
Though white wedding dresses will always dominate on international catwalks, these same catwalks are sharing the stage with a rainbow of colour, which means that modern brides are now given the freedom to do something completely different, and to experiment with the perfect colour for their particular skin tone.
There’s no doubt about the fact that your wedding dress is an expression of your personality and style, which is what should shine through on the day you look like the princess you are.
Captured in full colour to be shared with future generations, a different colour wedding dress means that if you do things differently on your special day, it’ll be a spectacular memory recorded in your wedding album.
While Queen Victoria may have set the standard for doing things the old fashioned way, and it certainly doesn’t mean that brides shouldn’t wear white, but white is making way for brides who want to do it on another scale.
There’s a rainbow of colours waiting for every bride of every colouring and every skin tone in today’s designer wedding dresses. This is especially great for you if your skin looks pallid in white you, giving you the opportunity to bring it to life in the perfect colour to suit your skin tone.
Blush pink, lavender, dusty rose, silver, dove grey or lilac bring to life a fantasy world every bride may enter today when she starts shopping for her wedding dress.
You’ll need to be firm with family and friends who think differently about the fact that you choose not to wear a white wedding dress, but that’s when you need to remind them that it’s your day and your vision!
Embellishments are a simple way to add splashes of colour to a white, cream or pale shade of gold, if these are shades you shimmer in. You may even add accessories and jewellery to offset these pure colours to enhance your natural colouring.
If you have the skin tone that allows you to wear white gracefully, and it’s always been your dream to look dazzling in billowing layers of lace and chiffon, you will find that even the choice between pristine white, ivory, cream, light gold or alabaster is just as daunting as settling on a purple or yellow wedding dress!
