Colour or Custom? What shade is your wedding dress?

In the year 1840, when Queen Victoria married Prince Albert, she strode down the aisle of Chapel Royal in St. James’s Park wearing a pure white wedding gown. The intricacy and detail on the Queens wedding dress was as ornate and grand as expected from a royal gown, however the wholesome white colour was revolutionary. The ripple effect that this wedding dress, fashion statement made has resonated through time. Representing purity and creating an angelic style, pure white gowns have become a tradition for wedding dresses.

 

However, over the past decade, coloured wedding dresses have made a comeback and the industry regresses to the early 19th century. Back in the day, brides opted for a baby blue wedding gown or pale pink or mauve colour. Flash forward to the 2000’s and we see many brides throwing it back to the coloured wedding dress trend! Reese Witherspoon ties the knot in blush, Chrissy Teigen says yes to the red dress and Gwen Stefani makes a statement on her special day, wearing a dip dye, hot pink wedding gown. Brides across the world have chosen a coloured gown over the traditional white wedding dress.
