Many brides choose to wear a white dress, which is a traditional bridal color. Some non conformist brides go for black, which is an opposite. But why not mixing these 2 colors up and wearing a white and black colored wedding gown? Such a gown will feature the traits of both colors, for a truly unique style. After you decided upon this, it is time to go shopping and find your perfect dress! This depends on your personal preferences.
A future bride has many styles and cuts she can choose from. Our first suggestion is a white dress, with a ball gown shape. Such a dress can have a white skirt, with a black embroidery. The top part can be strapless, sporting a sweetheart neckline, with a lace up back. If you like the princess style, the dress can be long, with either a court or cathedral train, which will provide an amazing effect. As for the jewelry, you should wear a pearl necklace with a matching bracelet for a delicate look, or perhaps a golden long pendant. Choose matching shoes in a white or black mix, made of satin, or lace up booties if the wedding takes place in fall or winter.
Another popular cut is the mermaid one. On a black and white color, the dress can be made of either satin or the more expensive silk, with ribbons all over and and a waist marked by a black satin sash perhaps embellished with Swarovski crystals or rhinestones. This type of dress will look good with elbow high gloves, and a white, long veil. You can add a tiara as the finishing touch. Your hair can be put up in a tight, high bun, or a messy one, which will add extra volume to your hair and make you appear taller.
A black wedding gown is the choice for a non conformist bride. If you like the Gothic style in your daily life, then why not choosing the same for your wedding? A black dress can look just as good – if not better – as a white one, once you find the right design, so stick around for some ideas!
This ruched strapless black wedding dress sports a romantic style, even if it is not light colored! It has a mermaid shape which flatters a slender figure. The dress hugs your curves, and the lower part is large enough to allow you to move around comfortably. Very detailed, the gown features a black satin belt embellished with crystals, and it has a high waist. You could wear it free of any accessories, or maybe with a long, red necklace for a chic finish. The black gown can be bought easily online, for $180.
If you can afford to spend more than $1500 on your wedding dress, then another choice is this Gothic gown. The dress has a Victorian corset with a sweetheart neckline, and a front opening busk. This gown is trimmed with venetian lace which looks fabulous, and the corset aces up at the front. It will be the perfect wedding attire for any goth princess! perhaps you should wear high heeled black boots, as well as a black rose bouquet.
The last black wedding gown we will show you here is this princess one! The dress is strapless, and and features a silver crystal embellishment on the chest area. This lovely gown flares out at the bottom, and zippers up at the back, using an invisible zipper. It would look best with a tight, high bun, as well as a black rose hair pin! You can buy it from several web sites for $200 or over.
Until recently, colored wedding dresses were regarded as inappropriate attire selections for a “real” wedding. We are quite excited to see that this trend managed to become so popular and attract so many brides from different cultures and regions. It’s customary in other states like India or Japan to wear a red gown at the wedding for instance. But in Europe there are still many preconceived ideas that prevent women from choosing something more vibrant and unique for their big day.
One of the most popular colors for wedding dresses largely accepted during the last few years for brides is pink. Nevertheless, we’re not talking about those hot pink or fuchsia nuances that are very strident, but of the softer shades. The blush look is very trendy nowadays and it seems that many brides decide to adopt if for their reception. Perhaps a pink wedding dress might not make the best selection for a church or religious ceremony. But it can surely make a fantastic choice for a cheerful reception party.
We’ve seen many blush wedding gowns in runways, especially New York and we are happy to share with you a few of our favorite models. We picked the styles that appeared to us the most wedding-appropriate. The blush hue sometimes leans towards a coral or peach nuance. These shades are very warm, feminine and seductive and they can help a bride look more outstanding and easy to spot in a crowd. Wearing a non-white wedding dress is still an exception in many cases.
There are still many couples who want to go traditionally or more conventional on their wedding. This means that they will only be using white, ivory and other nuances that are close to the classic style. We recommend the soft pink wedding dresses to offbeat modern brides because these nuances are rather subtle and not flashy. They are soft on the eye and very easy to love and adore! One of the classiest celebrities – Reese Witherspoon chose to wear a blush-colored gown from Monique Lhuillier on her wedding and since then everybody is crazy about this trend.
Perhaps you don’t feel ready right now to assume this style, but we are convinced that after seeing more beautiful models in pink and actually trying a few, you will be able to change your mind and heart. It can be very easy to fall in love with a blush pink wedding dress, especially for those who love all things sweet, juicy and romantic. Pink is not quirky and definitely not too much. If you use it in a soft shade, everything will look great. Don’t forget to incorporate the same color throughout your wedding setting and décor to obtain a unified wedding.
Not for all brides the wedding dress is white. Although white is the official color of wedding gown, not all women decide to adhere to this shade for their big day. And many of them have different solid reasons. One of them is that they don’t want to look popular, standard or classic. Those who care for something bolder or more eye-catchy can choose instead a brighter hue, like pink or red. It’s not mandatory though for the entire dress to be colored.
You can choose a model with a few splashes of color here and there for a more remarkable effect. It’s hip to choose a white gown with a colored sash, belt, flower fascinator or embroidery. But it’s even more elegant to select an off white model, like ivory, gray, silver, champagne, beige or cream. All these nuances are ideal for modern brides who prefer something a bit more outstanding and different for their big day. It’s easier now to plan a distinctive look for the big day when the range of styles and themes is so wide!
We are happy to discuss today about ivory wedding dresses, or more precisely about ivory wedding dresses crafted in lace. We think this shade goes perfectly well with this texture. Lace is very romantic, feminine and sensual, just as the ivory theme. Our designers recommend ivory lace wedding gowns to brides who are going for an antique style and want something old-fashion and gallant for their wear. Ivory has become a very popular nuance, especially because it is a bit warmer than white. For some women, the crystals clear white can be very disturbing, while for others it can be the perfect color choice.
Ivory is a great nuance for winter affairs because it is sleek and lustrous and also very approachable. The stark white hue might be too strident for those who care for something more affectionate and sentimental. We have to admit that there is something about ivory that makes it look very nostalgic. And when combined with lace, this shade becomes even more timeless and authentic looking. This is why we recommend it for those who are planning a vintage or antique ceremony.
There are also many brides who have a very white pigment. In this case, a very white gown can make them look even paler. There is also the risk of looking washed-out in a white dress. It would be wiser to go for the ivory alternative because it will fit better with your skin tone. Those who want to follow this coloring for their dress should look for ways to incorporate the same hue throughout the entire wedding. At least use the off-white palette also for the floral arrangements.
Not all brides want the white dress for their wedding. This is one of the most recent conclusions we’ve reached in the last few years. Color is one of the most important elements of a modern wedding. More and more designers from different wedding fields are willing to incorporate color in their collections, whether we’re talking about wedding dresses, whether about cakes, flowers or bridal accessories and other elements of décor.
The exotic themes and the eccentric style is in big vogue right now and this is why so many couples decide it’s time to let go off tradition and embrace something more modern. It’s essential for a 2012 bride to go with the flow of the trends and pick a more fashionable design for her wedding. Unless you’re a traditional bride and want a classic wedding!
But even in this case, you should know that there are no pure traditional themes or elements of design anymore to choose for a wedding today. The style is more eclectic than ever before, and this means that you have more chances to plan a successful wedding and look. We might not know what all brides want, but there is one thing we do know for certain: that they all want to look unique and attractive.

There is nothing modest and definitely nothing standard. The contrary, everything’s sophisticated and ample, intricate and sumptuous.
The pompous look might be every bride’s cup of tea, but those who are having a fairytale wedding will surely find pleasure in seeing these phenomenal gown masterpieces.

We like the cherry pink, the navy and the sunny yellow models.

This brand hardly designs pure white wedding dresses. Most of them come in color and with colored accents. However, they use the pastel palette and this is why the effect is so soft on the eye. Compared to other Japanese couture wedding dresses we found out there, these ones are the less pompous.
We know oriental couturiers are crazy about exuberant designs, rich colors and sophisticated details. The embroideries, the embellishments and adornments they use for the gowns are incredibly large and intricate. This ornamental style is the one that describes the Japanese, Korean or Chinese fashion couture the best.
They are obsessed with color and whimsical details, but Jill Stuart’s dresses are slightly more adequate for weddings. This label is based on feminine silhouettes and a lot of vintage accents. The old-fashion details they use are the elements that make these gowns look so attractive and one of a kind.
The hairstyles and headpieces, the colors and the accessories used for this collection are all about sweet candy-looks. If you are one of those romantic brides who want an appetizing look for your wedding and perhaps a youthful appearance, then this collection is for you.
There are a few adornment items that look fancy and girlish here, but not in an ostentatious way. These gowns are juicy and romantic but in an elegant classy way. The ideas promoted by this brand are interesting and new, but we wonder if they appeal to many clients. We wonder how many consumers are out there for this sumptuous style! What about you? Would you like to wear one of these enchanting gowns at your wedding?
We like the layered lace, the gentle flounces, the voluminous skirts and the pleated design, the chic old-era gloves, the Victorian influences, the romantic veils, the beaded details and the jewels. The Big in Japan kind of look is definitely for the offbeat brides who still dream of the fairytale wedding. Besides this, there are many unique accessory ideas to steal from here.
Wedding dresses can be found in a great assortment of styles and colors and there si no doubt you are going to find the right one in the end only by browsing and studying the online market places. If you wish to have a romantic dress, but with a more nonconformist attitude, the salmon colored wedding gowns are a very cool and fashionable choice. Salmon pink has been the hit color of the few last years and it seems it is here to stay and embellish our lives in a peachy feeling.
The first wedding dress that incorporates this beautiful romantic color is the Jordan M565 Mariano Wedding Dress from My Dress 4 Less. It is not completely salmon pink but a combination of white with salmon pink large details especially in the back. Long, embellished and really elegant, this A line creation will look exquisite on almost any body shape and at most elegant wedding parties. The salmon pink borders of the skirts and the bow are a terrific combination with the simple white rest of the dress. It’s strapless, it has a low back and a fitted over the natural waist waistline. It should be avoided if you are planning a beach wedding because e the long heavy train will get ugly if dragged in the sand. This wedding dress style costs $597.
We pass on to a more conventional sort of wedding gown, the Princess Ball Gown V-neck Chapel Train Taffeta Wedding Dress from Co Wholesale. This princess cut dress has a beautiful bodice with a V neck and wide shoulder straps, especially made to balance an apple shaped body and to hide wider than usual shoulders. The web site shows it in white, but you can order it in a very interesting shade of salmon pink. The skirt is adorned with layers and layers of fabric, beautifully draped to make you seem like a true princess. The price for this one is a little bit smaller, costing $309,99.
Our last choice for the evening is something for all of those girls that wish on wearing a Quinceanera gown with all of its extravagant detailing. The Quinceanera Collection – Style 2591003 from Top Bridal Dress is a salmon pink extravaganza with lots of puffy accents and glittery details. The bodice has spaghetti straps and a deep cleavage for a sensual look, but remember that this sort of gown is not recommended to anybody. You got to have small shoulders and skinnier arm so it would look fabulous. The price for this funky creation is $409,99.
A bride will always be interested first in getting the right dress to wear on her big day, but all around the world there are different women that want different styles of clothing, so you cannot advice her to get a classic choice that all the wedding fashion magazines post everywhere.
If you are one of the brides that have more alternative tastes in fashion and your wedding is a small informal bash between your closest friends and relatives, you will certainly need a very informal dress that makes you look fabulous, but does not resemble the classic A line gown that most brides pick in an instance.
Unique designs are the ones that you should mainly be looking for and if you do not find the one you are looking for, just go to a local tailor or fashion designer and start a short collaboration.
Ballerina gowns are very informal picks that take in the stylish beauty of a wedding gown and makes it passionate, discreet and interesting. Like a tutu, this sort of attire should take in a fitted strapless bodice combined with a short skirt. If you want to keep it casual, choose the loose simple skirt rather than the tulle made one. The best fabric for such a gown is one with a graphic or a floral bohemian print. Vintage accessories and a belt or sash around the waist will make you seem like a fashion queen ready to commit in the most stylish way possible.
Another type of dress that has caught our attention is the bubble dress which is another short ensemble that will flatter your body. If it has an empire waistline and a round wide neckline, this dress will be the best casual thing you have ever worn. Three quarters sleeves are a modern detail while some embellishments next to the neckline are classy and welcome. In this case, go for cotton or viscose based fabrics in bright colors or funky prints all over. The accessories that work the best are those that dress up the wrists and the head rather than necklaces.
For more mature ladies that wish to look simple, but elegant on their wedding day, we sincerely recommend wrap dresses. Even though they sound very mom appropriate choices, these dresses have the sole purpose of making you seem thin, slim and fashionable. If you have larger breast, a not so deep cleavage will make your assets pop and look fabulous, while the sash around your waist can be tied in the back, in a wide beautiful bow, for that girly feminine touch you might need. We do not recommend vivid prints, but nude or rich shades.
