While coloured dresses aren’t a particularly new style phenomenon, 2013 appears to be the year where an increasing number of brides are looking beyond the traditional white, ivory and cream dresses, reports windsorstar.com.
Pink appears to be bang on trend for celebrity weddings, with Anne Hathaway and Jessica Biel donning dresses that incorporated splashes of pink, while a variety of shades should be available for everyday brides. Pink dresses could also be tailored to the decor of the wedding ceremony and wedding reception venue for those looking to add a dash of femininity to their big day.
Victoria Rucks, district manager for dress shop David’s Bridal Canada, commented on the proliferation of pink dresses: “I just think that it is all inspired by the idea of the blushing bride, and that pink just seems to be a beautiful natural transition of that.”
Furthermore, Vera Wang’s bridal collection for spring 2013 also showcased carious tones of red, highlighting that the age of a simple white dress may be firmly left in the past.
Nevertheless, just because a dress has a bit of colour doesn’t mean that would-be brides should drop everything and purchase the garment. Glamour.com suggests that women should try their hardest to resist snap judgement.
Celebrity wedding stylist Nicole Janowicz states: “I had a celebrity bride try on 27 dresses at a fitting in order to find the perfect reception dress. Just as it takes time to find a husband or wife, it takes time to find the perfect gown.”
