One of the most common traditional wedding customs is the bride wearing a white or ivory gown. However, brides shouldn’t feel limited to one shade.  Colored wedding dresses are an exciting bridal trend that continues to emerge on the runways.  From ombré to full-color saturation, the possibilities are endless when it comes to selecting a wedding gown. 

A non-traditional bride may opt to infuse her wedding day with a colored dress because who says you must wear white? There are no rules when it comes to what color a wedding dress should or shouldn’t be. What matters most is that the bride feels comfortable in her own skin and the dress she selects to walk down the aisle.  Opening the door to colored wedding gowns also opens the door to the idea of using unique textures, patterns, and fabrics that wouldn’t normally be used for wedding gowns.  Some brides choose to wear the same color as their wedding party or flip the switch and put their maids in white and rock the wedding color themselves.
