Traditional white wedding gowns are often chosen because of their timelessness and innocence. But colorful gowns are increasingly making their way into the wedding world! New York’s Bridal Week collections and even Hollywood have caught onto this trend. A colorful gown not only makes the bride the center of attention on her big day (as she should be), but can also tie every aspect of a carefully detailed day together! Whether you want a subtle shade of gray or bright floral, a colored gown is perfect for brides who want to add some surprise to their trousseau and a few more double-takes on her way down the aisle. Here are some of our favorites grouped by palette!
Gray and champagne are perfect colors for brides who want a just a splash of color. These colors can be paired with just about any other color bridesmaid dress or bouquet which make them perfect for any style wedding!
Black is dramatic, daring, classy, modern; the list goes on and on! Black is a bold and sophisticated color, but it’s also timeless and tasteful.
If you want more of a vibrant gown, cool toned dresses are for you! Cooler colors, such as green, purple, and blue are fun and bright. And depending on the shade, they are flattering on most skin tones!
Pinks and reds are simply the most romantic colors and have the ability to make any wedding feel like a fairytale! Which is perfect, because prince charming sweeps you off your feet in the end!
For the bright and daring bride, orange and yellow are two colors that will make anyone do a double take! The orange gown paired with the hot pink bridesmaids dresses are so vivid and sunny, perfect for any Spring wedding! Or, if you’re really looking to make a statement, pair these colors with a neutral gray.
For the bravest of all brides there are always patterned fabrics! We know, we know, crazy stuff! But these gowns are the perfect mix of pretty and modest. Floral gowns have the perfect touch of Victorian romance, while stripes (like a gown by Oscar de la Renta) are modern and mesh perfectly with nautical themed weddings.
