The colour you choose for your wedding dress makes a huge impact on the overall look and effect it has on your natural colouring. Contrary to popular belief, white wasn’t always the traditional colour for a wedding dress.
In fact, it didn’t become popular until the late 19th century when Queen Victoria started the ball rolling towards the eternally traditional white wedding dress.
Before white became tradition, brides wore dresses in many different colours on their wedding days, and, during the first and second world war, there was seldom even the opportunity to brighten up even the simplest of outfits.
However, wedding dresses in a rainbow of colours are breaking the mould today, with international and local designers including more colours into their ranges for modern brides.
While diamond white, eggshell white and ivory might all look the same to the naked eye, each has a distinct impact on the natural colouring of the bride, besides which, the colour or shade of white you choose for your wedding dress will also be an expression of your personal style.
It’s easy today to make a designer wedding dress distinctly yours, because in most instances, designers offer their dresses in a variety of colours.
If you aren’t that into wearing a distinctive colour, you can choose to add a pop of colour to the dress with finishing’s and accessories. Many contemporary brides are want to go for an avant-garde look on their special day, especially if what they’re wearing is in keeping with the theme of the wedding and the venue.
Truthfully, brides today can wear anything and still look classic and timeless, depending entirely on what they draw the focus to.
Why Ivory is popular
Most bridal shops are stocked with ivory wedding gowns because it has become the dominant colour for brides everywhere, the primary reason being that ivory is a soft shade that enhances nearly every skin tone.
