Utterly Gorgeous Coloured Gowns for the Unconventional Bride
For me, having a vintage inspired wedding was about trying to create a look personal and unique to me – when I was younger I was adamant I would get married in black, so obviously my wedding was always destined to be unique! When planning our wedding I did consider challenging convention and going with a coloured wedding dress, but I am afraid to say I found it all too difficult and chose the easy Ivory option. But after my perfectly Vintage Inspired Wedding I came across this incredibly inspirational real life wedding bridal perfection on 100 Layer Cake
(go to 100 Layer Cake to see all the lovely photos – how cute is the matching cake topper!)
Oh so gorgeous and glamorous bride Phillipa could not look more beautiful in her glittering, green, Jenny Packham gown – it is simply deco divine! And it got me thinking, I can’t be the only bride to be who considered not conforming, so what is out there for those brides playing with the idea of shying away from the traditional ivory or white?
I realise I may sound a bit biased, but for any bride looking for a glamorous, deco inspired, coloured wedding dress, Jenny Packham is a good place to start!
Starting with this truly beautiful colour and design, straight out of the Golden Age of Hollywood, in fact, one of my Style Icons of today – Vintage Diva Dita Von Teese wore it, and looked absolutely stunning……
But, back to Jenny Packham – that dress, made instantly famous by the Duchess of Cambridge, I thought immediately would make a beautiful wedding dress……
If it is Silver glamour you want, then this gorgeous gown by Karen Willis Holmes might be for you……
Or for a more traditional in style dress, take a look at Francesca, in a very pretty almost blue silver colour.
Of course, just as I start thinking about and looking for coloured wedding dresses who should unveil their latest collection but one of my favourite wedding dress designers, Vera Wang!
As always the designs are incredibly lush and the colours are just so romantic……
Wow, wow, wow, I can’t even pick a favourite!
If something more whimsical or retro is for you, then take a look at this fabulous Australian wedding, from Ruffled, captured perfectly by talented photographer Adrian Tuazon……
I love the powder blue dress and her contrasting pink shoes are SO cute!
I must admit to being amazed, and impressed, with the selection and choice of unconventional, coloured wedding dresses available, it’s a clear sign of the demand for them – for brides today wanting to create a unique look and wedding that expresses their style and personality, they have plenty of gowns and dresses to choose from!
