Brides Favouring Colour Over White
New brides are favouring colourful dresses over the traditional white gown. The wedding dresses of celebrities such as Jessica Biel and Blake Lively are attributed with having inspired the recent trend towards more colour options.
Wedding gowns at the moment come in novel shades such as mint green, lavender, champagne, and peach.
Wedding designers are eager to cater to the shift, with high-end designers such as Oscar de la Renta showing ivory lace dresses edged with pink and blue lining. Vera Wang’s latest collection was more bold, and featuring stunning red wedding gowns.
According to couture bridal designer Rhonda Hemmingway, the trend for more colourful wedding dresses might be copied straight from the red carpet. People are looking to the elaborate gowns worn by celebrities to inspire their wedding day.
Hemmingway named actor Eva Longoria as an example, saying Longoria often wore pastel and that people have been inspired by her fashion taste to make similar choice for their wedding.
