Bridal Gowns Get Colorful

articles_altWalk into a California bridal salon and you expect a sea of white (or ivory, or cream). More and more, though, we’re seeing splashes of bright color on the typical white gown—and even more dramatic dresses that are far from pale. Deep red, sapphire blue…our own production guru Sharon was married in a gorgeous ivory and gold frock with green beading.


Brides traditionally wear white because it’s the color of purity and joy. But other colors may bring a more personalized feeling to your wedding. What about wearing the same color you wore when you met or had your first date? By the time we get married, we know what colors look best on us and few of us say our favorite color is white. Why not wear a color that makes you feel beautiful?

But what I want to know is: when push comes to shove, would you buck tradition and wear a non-white wedding dress? If not, why not?
