Tips for Choosing a Colored Wedding Dress

Colored wedding dresses give you a lot of options in terms of style and patterns. If you are willing to break the tradition of plain white wedding gown, and don something colorful, do it with the help of some unique ideas provided in the following Buzzle article.
Think of wedding dresses, and you will have an image of a bride wearing that grand white dress with embroidery and self prints. However, white is not any more, the only color that a bride can choose for her wedding apparel. If you are looking out for some innovative dress patterns, it's time to play with colors, and have an ultimate looking outfit designed for your wedding day. Here are some ideas, which you can opt for while choosing your wedding attire.
Hint of Color
If you don't want to compromise that traditional wedding dress made of white fabric, just go for a hint of colors that complement the white shade. You can add single-colored accessories to the attire, especially a combo of a certain color and a white pearl, or white diamond jewelry will nicely add that colored look to the attire. For instance, red or blue accessories can look just awesome on a white outfit. You can match your necklace, earrings, bracelet, and hair accessories with this complementary color. Another idea is to tie a broad, colored belt to the outfit. You can just have it at the back side or one around your waist. You can have a high waistline with the belt tied around into a large bow at the back. You can opt for long sleeves with semi-transparent, colored fabric. Also, the same fabric can be used as a border for the hemline, waistline, or the slits. For those corset dresses, you can add a colorful touch with lacing and its backing fabric done in color. For off-shoulder and strapless designs, you can have a 2-inched, colored border above the chest and a waist belt of the same color.
Styles of Adding Colors
One of the popular styles of adding color to modern dresses is having layered bottom, wherein, you can add colors. The topmost layer used is that of sheer fabric that goes well with the base fabric. Usually, red on white or pink on purple is a classy idea. You can have a plain, solid color gown with embroidery done in a contrasting color. For example, on a black bridal gown, you can have red embroidery, or aqua blue embroidery on a pink gown. Believe me, delicate embroidery can add a feminine touch and make your dress a unique wedding apparel. This can be with two and the topmost layer. Dual-colored dress with top and bottoms done in contrasting shades is among the styles, which needs careful choice of color combination. A wrong combo can ruin the entire apparel. This style usually looks great with high waistlines. Sometimes, pleated dresses with contrasting shades for upper and inner side of plates is a highly popular style.
Single or Dual-colored Dresses
Whether to go for a single-colored or dual-colored dress completely depends on your choice. Dual-colored dresses definitely give you a lot of options. However, choosing the right colors becomes the most important task. You can go for bold contrasting combos, or informal colors for informal or casual theme, or pick matching colors for informal wedding attire. You can have seasonal colors to make it a special outfit. Like adding those orange and yellows, the fall wedding colors for a fall wedding are excellent ideas. Single-colored dresses look pretty, and many love to opt for these. The most popular ones being red and maroon, you can also go for pink, blue, lavender, purple, green, yellow, and golden. Silver accessories can go well with most of these colors.
Color will help you to get the best look on this day. Try out the various colors and styles, and go for the one that suits you the best. So get ready to dress up in that grand, colored dress on your wedding day!
