What are subtle ways to wear colour on your wedding day?
Think about adding colour in the under layers of the gown, a soft colour
lining underneath layers of tulle or lace can create a subtle hint of
colour that is visible but soft in appearance. If you envision a
completely coloured gown‚ but want to have a subtle feel, look towards soft
or pastel shades.

It seems blush and champagne are two pretty common ways to experiment
with gown colour, what are some other colours you’re seeing people play with?
Soft lilacs and mauves, pale blues and muted greys are becoming more
popular for the bride looking to add colour in her wedding gown.

What’s your advice to someone who wants to take it up a notch, and go for something a little more vibrant?
Pair a bold colour with classic silhouettes and timeless details. Bold
colour can be a great option for the bride who has never envisioned her
gown in the traditional bridal shades.Think about how you want to look on your wedding day but also how you want to feel when you look back at your photos in years to come. If you choose to add colour to your gown pick a shade that is classic in your eyes.
