Is the trend using colour in wedding dresses? I quite like it. I got married in blue. Apparently that was the norm a couple of hundred years ago. These things come and go. I just didn't see the point of wearing white when I could wear my favourite colour which suits me better. It wasn't a church wedding so I could do what I liked.
I think the dress in the picture looks beautiful. Every bride should wear whatever makes her feel special and happy. The "tradition" of wearing white is a very modern one, until really recently, brides just wore their best dress to get married in, regardless of what colour it was. It is only in modern times that we have the money and fabric options to buy a dress for one specific occasion and such an impractical dress as bridal dresses are now!
I have seen it around now for a while, and I am trying to get my head around it.
Maybe?....it's for Brides who feel wearing all white is not correct, if they have been living with their intended, before marriage.
I have seen Bides gowns with trims of every colour, Red - Purple - Green and yes! even Black.
It's nice. I think waring white is relatively new idea. If looking back years ago on the Royal weddinga (UK) I don't know that they were into white, like post Elizabeth II. The dress in the photo looks very nice. But, I hope the red streak is not symbolic
My Wedding Dress was White Thai Silk, with Military-style collar, as my husband-to-be was in the Army, so our outfits 'matched'. The rest of my gown flowed to ground, with inverted pleat down one side. Had my long hair all curled up at back & sides, & flat-back in front, as a Tiara of flowers, matching my Bouquet, was my headpiece. I had no veil, as I just not a veil sort of person. I'm very biased, of course, but all looked beautiful!
I scrubbed up pretty well, too!
I had to go to Hong Kong, for work, so took some of gown-material with me, & had Wedding shoes & bag made there.
