Q: White isn't a good color for my complexion. Is there anything else I can wear and still look like a bride?

A: Absolutely. Most designers make wedding gowns in a spectrum of soft shades like sage, blush, champagne and powder blue. Another option is wearing an ivory gown decorated with colored embroidery. Ask your bridal salon to show you a selection of styles. And bear in mind that no matter what the color of your dress, everyone will know you're the bride.
