A white dress has been the staple of a traditional wedding, dating back to the 1800s with Queen Victoria. But in recent years, more and more brides are opting for colored wedding dresses instead of the traditional white for their wedding day. From blush shades to bold hues and jewel tones, here are a few things to keep in mind when deciding if a colored wedding dress is right for you.
Start with Simple Tones
A brightly colored wedding dress may be slightly intimately for some brides. For those wanting to keep it simple, a nude or blush tone can be a perfect choice. The colors are soft and romantic, while also not breaking too much with tradition. These colors also look great on a wide variety of skin tones so you know you’ll look gorgeous on your wedding day!
Where to Look
If your mind is fully set on having a colored dress for your wedding, be sure to start looking months (or even a year) before your wedding date. There may not be a large selection of colored dresses to choose from so you’ll want to give yourself plenty of time to find some great options.
Know the Wedding Theme
Before selecting a color for your dress, it’s important to consider the colors and theme of your wedding. For example, if your main colors are red and pink, a blush dress would blend perfectly with that design. While this may seem like a small detail, it can be vital to creating a cohesive look on your wedding day. You can even pair your bouquet and centerpiece colors with your dress as well!
Depending on your chosen dress color, you’ll also need to find the right accessories to match. If your dress is brightly colored such as jewel-toned, you may want to keep your accessories to a minimum and not draw focus away from your gown. Should you opt for a more blush-colored dress, you have a bit more room to play around with accessories such as your veil, hairpins or even a headpiece.
