Getting Married? Need Engagement Advice? Listen up.
Think wedding? Think white. Right? Not so, these days! While white may still be the go- to color for brides, wedding color is blooming like a spring garden, and popping up in so many exciting places! Brides have always loved “choosing their colors,” but in the past this was limited to bridesmaid’s dresses and flowers. Now the princess of the day can choose from a dazzling array of wedding gown possibilities. And forgoing white does not mean abandoning tradition for garish hues- hot trends for colored wedding gowns include stylish silver and grey, lovely soft pastels and deep vintage tones.
How about incorporating stunning, rich color into your wedding rings? The yellow gold band contrasted with the scarlet ruby stones of this stunning wedding ring set would suit a bride of character and beauty.
Not sure about “going all the way” with color when it comes to the all-important dress? A fun flirty trend we love is the colored underskirt. Some are designed to drop down below the white hem for a more dramatic two-toned look, while others only peek out when the bride kicks up her heels. Whether you go subtle with a soft peach petticoat, or make a statement with layers of fuchsia tulle- we think this is a wonderful way to infuse your wedding with romantic, joyful color!
Add some joyful jewels to your engagement ring– and your heart will skip a beat every time the colorful sparkle on your finger catches your eye.
Love color but have your heart set on a pure white gown? Maybe it’s the influence of “Sex in the City”- who can forget Carrie and her blue Manalo Bhlaniks? Or maybe its just our growing love for fabulous footwear, but the plain-white satin wedding shoe is becoming a thing of the past. A trend that started with gold and silver strappy heels appearing beneath long white gowns has now opened up a paint box of possibilities, from red cowboy boots to these elegant azure blue pumps. And did you know that blue is a symbol of purity? What a lovely way to I say “I do!”
The sapphires in this elegant engagement ring would also proclaim your love is true blue.
