Long before runways ran wild with colorful wedding gowns, stars like Reese Witherspoon and Gwen Stefani wore blush dresses down the aisle, ushering in demand for softly hued looks. Now, seasons later, pink wedding dresses have officially debuted as a key trend for Spring 2013.

While wearing a red, blue, or gold wedding dress this year will align your look with the season's most forward-thinking designs, opting instead for a blush gown (in shades like peachy-pink and strawberries-and-cream) will keep your colorful wedding dress feeling ultra-modern without sacrificing on traditional bridal style, too. Designers from Vera Wang to Carolina Herrera to Monique Lhuillier have long used pink as a soft accent color on sashes and embroideries, but with a punched-up palette this season, head-to-toe blush gowns are the new normal. We, for one, couldn't be more tickled—pink.
