While colored wedding dresses have become more popular in recent years, it’s hard to compete with a simple white dress. Not only do you have more room for colorful accessories and shoes, but you also have your choice of a variety of different fabrics. Whether you’re looking for something simple or extravagant, here are some things to consider when deciding if a simple white wedding dress is right for you.
Give Yourself Options
Since white is both the most traditional and popular color for a wedding dress, you’ll have far more options to choose from than if you were opting for a colored dress. We recommend doing a little research ahead of time before your dress appointment, such as on Pinterest or wedding magazines, to get a feel for what you like and don’t like. You can also give your bridal specialist a little background on what you’re looking for so she can help narrow down the selection.
Choose Your Fabric
Not only will you be looking for a favorite silhouette while dress shopping, but you’ll also want to pay attention to the fabrics. Throughout your search, you’ll find various dresses in different fabrics such as satin, chiffon, organza and even lace. Even if you don’t immediately love it, we recommend trying on several fabrics so you know how each looks on your body and which you’re most comfortable in. It can also be helpful to take photos of each so you can look back on them if you need help deciding.
Once you’ve chosen your dress, it’s time to accessorize! When wearing a white wedding dress, you give yourself a little more room to add accessories since your dress color is remaining simple. Dress it up or down (pun intended) with your favorite accessories such as a feathered headpiece or a lace trim. Feel free to experiment with jewel-toned accessories as well if you’d like to add a pop of color to your wedding day look.
While you may be looking for a simple white wedding dress, that doesn’t mean you don’t have color options. Maybe you’re looking for something a little unexpected or aren’t completely ready for a colored dress. You can always meet in the middle with an off-white color such as nude, beige or even a pale blush color! If you already have your wedding colors in mind, you can also try to match these to your dress.
