The idea of wearing a white wedding gown has only been around for about 160 years, when Queen Victoria opted for a cream lace look for her 1840 wedding. Before that, brides wore dresses that spanned across the entire color spectrum, mostly choosing from whatever was in their closet.
So, if you’re not into the whole white dress concept, you have hundreds of other colors to choose from! Below we list some pieces we have in store that are non-traditionally bridal – but in the best way possible!
Champagne gowns give your wedding day look a golden touch. This color works well with many different skin tones, especially if you have a naturally warmer tone (like naturally tan skin or caramel highlights in you hair). This look is soft and still traditional - with just a little bit of a bohemian vibe.
The newest trend in wedding-dress colors, blush wedding gowns are rising in popularity. They have a soft and romantic look that is more bold and whimsical than an ivory- or champagne-colored dress. These dresses are for the true girly-girl bride who still has a fashionista edge.
In our boutique, this color is called "oyster" by our designers. This is a less popular wedding dress color, but we have a feeling that will change very soon. A dress with grey-tones looks silver, especially when paired with beading and embellishment. For brides who want to be ahead of the trend & look incredibly glam - this one is for you!
We tell brides all the time - "find a gown that looks and feels like YOU" - if that means throwing tradition to the wind and wearing a totally different color, then we say go for it! It might be harder to find, luckily local designer Aeva has dyed Miss Ruby gowns before and they have turned out perfectly! This trend is for brides who aren't afraid of making a statement and being themselves.
