How to Pick the Perfect Colour for Your Wedding Gown

The colour you choose for your wedding dress makes a huge impact on the overall look. Contrary to popular belief, white isn’t the most traditional colour to wear on your wedding day. In fact, it didn’t become popular until the late 19th century when Queen Victoria started the trend.

Brides before Queen Victoria wore coloured dresses on their wedding days, regardless of what their social status was. But, coloured dresses are making a comeback and designers are including more colours into the wedding dresses of modern brides.

While diamond white, eggshell white and ivory might all look the same to the naked eye, each of them brings out a distinct feature in the bride. Your dress colour should also depend on your personal style.

Many designers offer their dresses in various colours making it easy to make the dress uniquely yours. If you aren’t the adventurous type, you can choose to add just a pop of colour. More contemporary brides are after an avant-garde look for their special day. But, honestly, brides today can wear anything and still look classic and timeless.

Ivory Is a Popular Dress Colour Choice Right Now: Here’s Why

Most bridal shops are stocked with ivory wedding gowns because it has become the dominant colour for brides everywhere. The primary reason for this is because ivory is a shade that looks better on nearly every skin tone. Additionally, details and textures of a dress are more evident when the ivory contrasts.

Whatever colour dress you choose, we know you will look stunning on your wedding day!
