Brides say “I do” to wedding gowns in colour
(NC) Whoever says that a bride must wear white isn't aware that the most popular trend in wedding gowns this year is anything but traditional. While white, ivory and champagne gowns will always be a classic and popular choice among brides, coloured dresses are starting to take centre stage, as more celebrities like Reese Witherspoon, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Biel recently chose pink as their signature wedding colour.
Canadian brides who want to look equally pretty in pink have their share of options, such as bright splashes of hot pink found in sashes, soft and barely-there blush dresses, and stunning ball gowns that are drenched in rosy hues.
“As weddings continue to be a creative, personal expression of a bride's special day, the desire to make her dress as unique as she is has never been more important. We are seeing more brides coming into our stores embracing stand-out gowns in subtle shades of beige and petal pink,” says Victoria Rucks at David's Bridal Canada, a leading special occasion and wedding retailer. “Personally, I love the idea of adding touches of pink, inspired by the tradition of a blushing bride. It's a colour that flatters a lot of skin tones as well."
Another subtle shade that makes a daring statement is sterling grey, an emerging colour that lends itself particularly well to 'winter wonderland' themed ceremonies and receptions. In fact, says Rucks, the White by Vera Wang collection introduced a new sterling ball gown in the Fall 2013 collection that is sure to turn heads. Pair a coloured wedding gown with a neutral bridal party, and it will be an event to remember.
