Watch out White – Colorful Gown Ideas for Your Wedding!

Hi Lovelies!

It’s finally warming up outside, the flowers are finally blooming and spring is finally in the air! In this season of pastel floral prints, we at Marisa Nicole Events have been flirting all week with the idea of fabulously colored wedding gowns. It is true that ever since the days of Queen Victoria, a beautiful woman ‘all dressed in white’ is how we imagine what a bride should look like on her wedding day. While we gush over white dresses just as much as the next team of wedding designers, but today we’d like to discuss the idea of putting tradition aside and getting hitched in a gorgeous tinted gown. Hopefully you too will be inspired to think outside of the box and consider a more colorful dress for your celebration!

If you aren’t quite sold on the idea of a colored dress, a light champagne dress, such as this one from BHLDN is a great option. We just love champagne gowns! As one of the most popular color options for wedding dresses, you are sure to find a style that fits your look perfectly.

Soft Purple

The sweet elegance of a lavender dress makes us squeal with delight!  This ethereal Emily Riggs Bridal Ophelia dress is perfect for a beach or ranch style wedding. Pair the color with lace cap sleeves, and you have one drop-dead gorgeous gown!

We cannot help but swoon over beautiful blush dresses like these, photographed beautifully by Jose Villa. Similar to champagne, but with a bit more hue, these gowns are sweeping the wedding world by storm and becoming available in a plethora of cuts and styles!  With just a touch of color, blush dresses are a great choice for anyone who isn’t ready to indulge in a more wild option.

Powder Blue

While the idea of wearing blue to your wedding may sound shocking, a light powder blue is often more subtle than one might imagine.  We love this dress we found via Southern California Bride in particular, as the overlay makes the subtle, while still showcasing a fun pop of color.

Everyone needs a foxy black dress in their life, so why not kill two birds with one stone and make it your wedding dress?  This funky black tulle option, as seen in a shoot by Green Wedding Shoes, is an attention grabber and is sure to stun your guests in the best way possible!

Whether or not you decide to pick a traditional wedding dress option, or choose a fun and fresh pop of color, we are sure that if you pick something that you feel like yourself in that your beauty will shine through.
