We have championed the beauty of colorful wedding dresses for a long time. White will forever be classic and beautiful, but there's something undeniable about the appeal of an unexpected hue in a sea of ivory, cream, and eggshell.
More and more, extraordinary non-white gowns grace the bridal fashion week runways and everyone is taking notice. Take, for example, Hayley Paige's Spring 2018 collection. Classic silhouettes like mermaid skirts and A-line waists were transformed by the designer's use of stunning shades like chardonnay, orchid, and blush, as well as holographic details.
Mira Zwillinger also colored in their Spring 2018 runway show with frocks in hues like powder blue and mint green. So dreamy...
Vera Wang has a storied history with color showing everything from a graphic black and white collection in the spring of 2014 to a pink collection later that year in the fall and most recently, a rainbow assortment of gowns for her spring 2019 collection, incorporating everything from yellow to purple and fiery red. Naturally, her more affordable White by Vera Wang line at David’s Bridal has followed suit with offerings ranging from moody black to lavender and a sterling shade of grey.
Bold colors like these always make a big splash, even catching the attention of celebrities. Stars like Jessica Biel, Gwen Stefani, and even Elizabeth Taylor have all donned gorgeous gowns in vibrant hues when they tied the knot.
But don't let the stars have all the fun. Brides with fun-loving, whimsical personalities will similarly fall in love with the multitude of colored wedding dresses that have popped up this season. From Sareh Nouri’s new ultra-romantic mauve gown to Naeem Khan’s glitzy gold top-and-skirt set, the best non-white dresses feel perfectly bridal while bringing personality and individual style to the forefront. They can also become a wedding centerpiece and dictate the entire style and color palette.
