Color Me Beautiful Wedding Gowns

David’s Bridal GownWedding gowns aren’t just white these days. Many brides are opting to add color to their wedding wardrobe by wearing pastel, metallic and even jewel-tone gowns.

Recently, I attended a wedding where the bride wore a sapphire blue strapless mermaid gown. And yes … this was her first wedding.

In this sense, I’m a little more of a traditionalist and prefer white or ivory wedding dresses. However, one trend that I do like is adding a little color by wearing a gown with a colored sash, bow, trim or hemline.

At David’s Bridal, they offer a variety of gowns with colored accents. I really love the gown pictured here. It is a strapless, satin A-line dress with a lace up back and a sweep train. You can choose from fourteen gorgeous trim colors, in order to match your bridesmaids dresses.

What do you think about colored wedding gowns? Are you sticking with white or getting a little more daring?

    David’s Bridal might have a variety of wedding gowns, but nobody beats the best wedding favors on the planet.

    Shameless, I know.

    LoL, nice…I think the colored gowns are starting to grown on me, I didn’t really like them at first, but I think they are definitely becoming a new trend. It depends on your body style and the way the dress fits you too, otherwise it could look like a prom dress instead of a wedding gown.

    Oh, I definitely agree about the fit and style. If you wear a pink “froo-froo” type of gown, it will definitely come off like a prom dress.

    I’ve seen some nice wedding dresses in pale yellow and greens lately that have looked pretty nice though.

    I agree with the traditionalist approach. I like white and ivory, too. But for “themed” weddings, or weddings that take place during the winter, I love either red or a deep wine as an accent color. For spring and summer, both champagne/blush and sage green make gorgeous and soft accents.

    That would be beautiful, great colors. Unfortunately for bridesmaids, they are usually the ones with the pink “froo-froo” dress hehe :). Surprisingly, there are still a lot of bad bridesmaids dresses out there!

    I wasn’t a big fan of color on wedding dresses either until more recently. I really like the accent now though. Like the picture that is up…I love that the sash kind of matches with her flowers! It’s a great way to tie in the wedding colors!
