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