Modern Bride: How To Incorporate Color Into Your Wedding Day Attire
Social Media sites such as Pinterest give us a glimpse into how the modern Bride wants to look on her wedding day. One trend we’re seeing over and over is how Brides are incorporating a splash of color into their wedding attire. From colored shoes to hot pink petticoats, Brides these days are stepping away from all white.
We went to Donna Holland, owner of Party Dress Express, New England’s #1 Retailer for Proms, Weddings and Special Occasions, to find out why this trend is so popular and what are the different ways Brides can bring color to their big day.
Something Blue: “We’re obviously always seen the color blue used in a Bride’s wedding attire as her “something blue.” When I first started out, the use was subtle, perhaps a Bride was carrying a small blue handkerchief or she had a small blue ribbon pinned under her hem. But soon, we saw Brides be bolder. They wanted their something blue to be their dyed shoes or a statement necklace.”
But how did we then get to hot pinks, crisp oranges and pops of purple accenting a Bride’s wedding gown? Holland explains, “It’s really about a Bride’s desire to be unique and show off her personality."
How To Play With Color on Your Big Day
The biggest decision a Bride-To-Be will make after saying, “Yes, I will marry you!” is choosing her gown. But Holland told us, “That’s where the fun begins! That’s when you can start incorporating color with your wedding dress through accessories and more. We find most Brides like to either use colors from their wedding palette or a color in that family. But we’ve also seen, say, a Groom veto pink for the wedding and the Bride be able to express her love of that color with a gorgeous statement necklace.
