Is a Blush Wedding Dress Right for You?

Colored wedding dresses have been a growing trend over the past few years. Celebrities (unsurprisingly!) first embraced this trend, an example being Gwen Stefani's ombre pink gown. However, it has recently been catching on with other brides, and many designers are releasing colored wedding gown lines. Some of the most popular bridal gown colors are those that are closest to the traditional white and ivory: blush, champagne, and platinum being the most popular, with apricot and Tiffany blue also having made several appearances being worn down the aisle. Today, let's talk about one of the more popular, and my personal favorite: blush wedding dresses. colored bridal gown

How do you know if a blush wedding dress is right for you?

Every bride is unique and has her own vision for what her perfect gown will look like. Only you know for sure what will make you happiest on your special day. If you haven't been able to find 'the dress' after trying on countless white and ivory gowns, consider a more nontraditional option: blush bridal gowns. There are many reasons a bride might prefer a blush gown. This color tends to complement a wider range of skin tones than most shades of white. You want to look your best in photographs memorializing your wedding, so choosing a dress in a color that doesn't 'wash you out' is particularly important.

Blush wedding dresses are beautiful and unique, and will help you to feel both as well!

Choosing a colored bridal gown, such as a blush dress, is a popular way to feel unique as a bride. Anything that you choose for your wedding will display your individualism and personality; the very reasons your friends, family, and soon-to-be spouse love you. If a white or ivory gown isn't you, choose something that is! Are you concerned that a colored bridal gown might appear tacky or distracting? A blush wedding dress is muted enough not to appear gaudy or distract from the hard work you put into decorating. Blush pink dresses are also generally regarded as feminine and therefore will undoubtedly lend a soft elegance to the entire atmosphere of your celebration.

What color bridesmaid dresses look best with a blush bridal gown?

There are several approaches you can take to coordinate your bridesmaids with a blush wedding dress. I've personally always loved the idea of a black and white wedding party, as well as wedding guests, leaving only the newlyweds to  stand out in color. Any neutral color would look lovely next to a blush wedding dress, including black, white, ivory, nude, and mocha. Depending on your color scheme, a darker color can also complement your dress while still helping you to stand out; consider navy, mauve, or eggplant dresses. Finally, a bright pink or purple can be really stunning if you prefer a bolder wedding party! What do you think of our advice for deciding whether or not to wear a blush bridal gown?

I had a Maggie Sottero pearl rose (shiny blush) wedding dress. It was very complimentary to my skin tone and put a lovely spin on the traditional bridal gown!
