Many brides don’t question the colour choice of their gown, but lately, some brides have been getting a little more adventurous and ladies isn’t life more fun when it’s full of colour. How a more colourful wedding dress will make you look great? It's a unique option for the indie, alternative and hipster brides who want to stand out from the crowd on their wedding day. There are tons of possibilities; adding a pop of colour to the traditional white dress, using mostly colours, or even just doing an uncommon shade of white. So are you curious as to how a more colourful wedding dress will make you look great?
YOUR DRESS WILL LOOK SO UNIQUE AND PERSONAL
The best part is your dress will look so unique and feel so personal to you when you custom create a colourful wedding dress in Ottawa or Toronto. You can really use colour to express yourself and how you feel. What better way to show the world you’re happy than to put some vibrant colour into your wedding gown.
QUEEN VICTORIAS DRESS WAS MORE THEN A TREND
There are many wedding traditions that we do not challenge these days. From engagement to wedding day it sometimes feels like there is a big book of rules when it comes to tying the knot. One of the most common of these traditions is the white wedding dress. But do you even know when and where that all started?
Yes, it was Queen Victoria who first popularized the idea of wearing a white dress on your wedding day. After her grand white wedding, the elites of Great Britain began imitating her at all weddings. Her white lace wedding dress became the inspiration for brides worldwide in only a matter of years. And the trend has certainly stuck!
MORE COLOUR = MORE FUN
After years of designing colourful wedding dresses for brides, the feedback I hear so often is that adding colour made their day feel more special and unique. The brides I’ve worked with have loved that their dress was THEIR dress! No one else will ever wear the same one. I love working and custom designing wedding dresses with brides to figure out how to show off colour for their particular gown. Everyone has a unique personality and I love to try to emulate it with the colours and design of their dress!
I find a lot of brides want to add a colourful element to a traditional white wedding dress, and the results are always stunning! I like to think that the colourful wedding gowns I create are the cool younger sister to the traditional white wedding dress. Copious designs are elegant, beautiful, yet unique and playful.
WHAT COLOURS TO CHOOSE?
As seasons change different colours will accent your gown better. So I always say to brides looking for a custom gown that if you want to get married in the Fall or Winter you can brighten up your wedding photos by adding colours that a natural to those seasons. Infusing your wedding gown with warm Fall colours such as yellow, orange, or red can be so fun! It creates a stirring feeling of the warmth and comfort we associate with Autumn.
LOOKED LIKE A FLOCK OF BLUEBIRDS SCOOPED UP A BOUQUET OF FRESH FLOWERS
For summer weddings I like to create dresses that balance the white and colours quite seamlessly. With all the flowers and colours already present at your wedding, it’s nice when you find the balance between the white and colours in your wedding dress. I loved designing this summer wedding gown because it ended up looking like she was out of a Disney movie. It was as though a flock of bluebirds had scooped up a bouquet of fresh flowers, flew in the window and adorned her dress with them.
