Colored wedding dresses

For many cen­turies, a tra­di­tion has devel­oped in Euro­pean cul­ture that the bride must mar­ry with­out fail in a snow-white wed­ding dress. For decades, many of our com­pa­tri­ots meek­ly fol­lowed this tra­di­tion, and col­ored wed­ding dress­es seemed to them some­thing unthink­able. How­ev­er, times are chang­ing, and stereo­types are break­ing down, and today brides in col­ored dress­es are no longer a rar­i­ty and no longer a chal­lenge to the estab­lished cus­toms of soci­ety.

Colored wedding dresses — varieties

A dress made of col­ored fab­ric can be absolute­ly any in style and style. So, today in wed­ding salons you will sure­ly meet:

  1. Long col­ored dress­es, which can be both lush and straight, godet or empire style. A long dress is able to hide fig­ure flaws and empha­size its advan­tages; it looks solemn and incred­i­bly chic.
  2. Short col­ored wed­ding dress­es. When choos­ing such an out­fit, you should be care­ful — because if the style is too sim­ple, and the dress is not white, it will rather look like an evening dress. How­ev­er, you can empha­size your “bride sta­tus” and the queen of the ball with a wed­ding veil, a beau­ti­ful bou­quet, gloves and oth­er acces­sories. A short puffy col­ored dress will look very ele­gant, perky, unusu­al and seduc­tive.

Wedding dresses with colored elements

The bride’s dress may not be ful­ly col­ored, but only include cer­tain ele­ments that are dif­fer­ent in shade from the col­or of the entire out­fit. So, today you can meet:

  1. Wed­ding dress­es with a col­ored belt. As a rule, we are talk­ing about wed­ding dress­es with a wide col­ored rib­bon topped with a large bow. How­ev­er, it can be a thin belt, or a belt dec­o­ra­tion made of col­ored stones or rhine­stones. In this case, the belt can be bright or con­trast­ing, for exam­ple, very fash­ion­able snow-white dress­es with a black or red belt, or slight­ly dif­fer­ent in shade — for exam­ple, a blue dress with a rib­bon of a more intense shade.
  2. Wed­ding dress­es with a col­ored bow. They are usu­al­ly dec­o­rat­ed with puffy out­fits, but it can also be a straight dress or a godet-style out­fit. A large bow can be placed on the side or back, and a small one can be sewn on the front. Pay atten­tion to the fact that the bow will focus on the part of the body on which it flaunts, and even more so if it dif­fers in col­or from the whole dress.
  3. Wed­ding dress­es with col­ored trim. It can be chif­fon gath­er­ing, flow­ers, lace, pip­ing, or any oth­er trim that is dif­fer­ent in col­or from the whole out­fit.

Pop­u­lar col­ors

Today, an out­fit of any shade oth­er than white is con­sid­ered col­or. There­fore, all of them can be divid­ed into two large groups:

  1. Wed­ding dress­es in light col­ors. This includes out­fits in milky, beige, cream, cham­pagne, as well as light blue, pink, laven­der, lilac, sil­ver, gold, gray, pale yel­low, sal­ad shades.
  2. Wed­ding dress­es in bright and dark col­ors. The most unusu­al and pop­u­lar of them is a black wed­ding dress, which has become a hit in recent sea­sons and has destroyed all estab­lished stereo­types. Wed­ding dress­es in red and its shades look very bright, pas­sion­ate and sexy. In addi­tion, blue, hot pink, pur­ple, orange, green dress­es remain favorites. They are cho­sen by extrav­a­gant, coura­geous girls.

How to complement a dress made of colored fabric?

Col­ored wed­ding dress­es or out­fits with col­ored ele­ments will attract atten­tion in them­selves, so do not wear a lot of jew­el­ry. Often, the head of a bride wear­ing a dress oth­er than white is dec­o­rat­ed with a dia­dem, gloves and shoes are put on to match the dress. From jew­el­ry, you should choose some­thing neu­tral — for exam­ple, pearls, plat­inum, white or yel­low gold with dia­monds. Try to dupli­cate all the col­ors of your out­fit in the bride’s wed­ding bou­quet.

It is worth pay­ing atten­tion to make­up — it should not be over­ly bright, and its gen­er­al tone should be matched to the col­or of the out­fit.
