Bold Use Of Color In Wedding Dresses
Once upon a perfect night, unclouded and still, there came the face of a pale and beautiful lady. The tresses of her hair reached out to make the constellations, and the dewy vapours of her gown fell soft upon the land.

I am quite happy with my wedding dress, I blogged about it here. But, I still love looking at wedding dresses and think what I would do differently if I were to have/want that experience again.
I love looking at the different color trends of wedding dresses. I think it takes a certain kind of woman to choose a dress color beyond white and off-white. Vera Wang is well known for her show stopping wedding dresses, every year she interprets the wedding gown in beautiful ways. I like how she gives us a look at interesting colors beyond the white colorway.
Here is a red wedding gown which, I think would look amazing in a fall or winter wedding.
Again, Vera Wang. She gives us the opposite on the white color spectrum black, browns and greys.
I love the soft mauve color.
This is from Ian Stuart.
Look at this lovely shade of yellow.
Wedding dresses from other cultures and countries are rarely white. Pakastani and Indian wedding garments are know for their vibrant displays of color.
So what about you? What was your wedding dress like? Would you ever think of using another color than white or off-white? Would you sew and design your own wedding dress? Let me know at the Sew Daily Blog!
