Colored wedding gowns are now acceptable in society although the more traditional white or off-white gowns are still more common. Before, it used to be just the bridesmaids who can wear colored gowns but now, the more adventurous and modern brides opt to express themselves and wear the colors that they like most.
Two Kinds of Colored Wedding Gowns
There are two kinds of colored wedding gowns, the solid colored gowns and the ones that have only portions of colors. The solid colored gowns are those that are fully made of one solid color with maybe some little color splashes. These colored wedding gowns are pretty much the same as traditional wedding gowns except for their colors. Designers can make trains and veils for them along with many other embellishments and accents. The gowns which have portions colored are those colored wedding gowns that are still the traditional white or ecru with some color added to them. It could be the band around the waist that is of a different color or the full bodice that is colored. Other possible colored portions of the colored wedding gowns are the hem or the sleeves.
Colored wedding gowns can make an unforgettable wedding. People usually forget the more traditional wedding gowns which are white or ecru or any other version of cream but the colored wedding gowns are really unique and may cause quite a sensation. Usually, the colored wedding gowns complement the color motif. So most of the time, a burgundy wedding dress would mean that your color motif is burgundy.
Coordinating your color with that of the invitations and flowers decorating your wedding can be a very photogenic opportunity for you. Photographers like to take pictures of similar colors of various shades since these look pretty good on pictures. Colored weddings gowns should also have complementing bridesmaids dresses of a similar shade or maybe darker or lighter. This color coordination will assuredly look great in your wedding pictures.
Colored wedding gowns are also widely available in most specialized wedding stores or you can browse through an online catalog to search for the wedding gown of your dreams. Some people might not like colored wedding gowns but it is your wedding and you are paying for it so go ahead and indulge your fantasies and whims. After all, we do not get married plenty of times, even with divorce and everything, so make sure that you make it your best.
