They may not be sufficiently traditional for some, but the trend for colourful wedding dresses is still ongoing and even gaining ground. More and more brides-to-be are choosing touches of colour or a coloured total look in their bid to bring creativity and originality to their big day.

When taking the plunge and choosing a dress that is decorated with colourful details, future brides are often motivated by the desire to “brighten up” a dress, or attracted by what they see as a handy means to adapt an outfit to a chosen wedding theme.

When colour is restricted to discreet touches, it is generally focused on the bustier where it can be used to draw attention to embroidery and other motifs, or presented in the form of a coloured lace back. Some women who choose to say their “I dos” in white and ivory are attracted by the contrast created by colourful accessories (belts).

With regard to shades, nearly everything goes. However, black, chocolate, red, and bordeaux are the subject of debate, while gray, blue, pink and purple are increasingly popular, while dip-dye dresses with an ombre effect at the bottom have also been getting attention — at least on the web.

Launched several seasons ago, the trend for colourful wedding dresses was once again confirmed this year, even if it is far from obligatory. White and ivory still remain the first choice for the vast majority of brides-to-be who favour the immaculate look of more traditional creations.
