The bride wore…red?
by: WWG2014


This blog is dedicated to all the brides-to-be who don’t want to wear white on their wedding day. There’s no rule that says you have to wear a conventional colour or even a dress for that matter. In fact it was Queen Victoria who started the white wedding dress tradition after she wore one to wed Prince Albert in 1840. Before that brides would commonly wear their finest dress for the ceremony, regardless of the style and colour.

Some brides-to-be are taking inspiration from celebrities on the red carpet and opting for something bright or sparkly. You could dazzle your way down the aisle in a gorgeous metallic embellished gown, guaranteed to have your guests murmuring ‘wow’. Antique gold and frosty silver complement most skin tones and are completely on-trend.


Why not wear your favourite colour (that one colour that everyone stops to tell you how great you look in it) on the day you marry the love of your life? Make the aisle your runway and wear a brightly hued gown that you know for sure will look fabulous. Patterned dresses are also trending for modern weddings and we’re about to see a lot more of them in bridal couture, blogs and magazines.

Iin the end you could go ahead and throw all these rules out the window and wear something that makes you happy (and comfortable) on your wedding day. Who says you even have to wear a dress or something dainty and feminine? Whether you’re having a garden, beach (or underwater!) wedding, as long you’re wearing a smile, the bride can get away with anything, even a bikini!
