2023 has painted the bridal runway with colours from reds to blues to greys and even black. These daring wedding dresses offer a new way for brides to express themselves and make for a loud celebrative nod in honour of the full spectrum that makes up modern brides. While being bold and adventurous can be fun, most brides will want to walk down the aisle in a dress that feels a little more bridal. For brides who want to explore colour while keeping things bridal, here are some of our favourite colours and wedding dresses for your big day.
Champagne/Gold Wedding Dresses
If classic but a touch of vintage elegance is on the cards, gold and champagne tones are a great place to start. This colour is most interesting when used as a lining and playing with different sheer layers. For minimalist magical glamour, we suggest a wedding dress with luxurious sparkle champagne tulle layers like Le Lee Studio's Leandra dress with a unique sweet-heart corset bodice and soft tulle straps. For brides after a touch of more floral romance and contrasting patterns, Le Lee Studio's Lauret A-line dress with placement flowering lace over golden sparkle tulle with semi-sheer lining is a must-try.
The Peachy Nude Wedding Dresses
While at first glance, nude and peachy pinks can be mistaken for champagne, these fleshy tones are often orange-tinted with beige, caramel or honey hints. They are a great way to highlight lace patterns and create a sexy sheer illusion effect without flashing natural skin. This colour spectrum also adds a tanning glow to brides who wear them. Brides who love a bold, contemporary romance in a ballgown, we suggest trying on Galia Lahav's Euphoria with her beaded 3D floral embellishments and cheeky sheer side panels. If a soft, boho romance is on the check-list, Galia Lahav's Bellina ballgown with pleated silk tulles, wrap-around off-the-shoulder sleeves and layered soft tulle skirt is the stuff of wedding dress dreams.
The Blushing Pink Wedding Dresses
Blush is a pastel baby pink mixed with subtle grey hues. This colour tone is one of the most romantic hues a bride can wear to say "I do". It's a modern-yet-feminine way to add whimsy to your bridal look while highlighting patterns and features on a wedding dress. For a soft, girly romance, try Blush by Hayley Paige's Fiona A-line gown with a plunging sweetheart neckline, scoop back and side cutouts, and a full tulle skirt with lace applique. If a bold and elegant look is more your thing, Enzoani's Sharon ballgown with illusion padded corset bodice with exposed boning and shimmering tulle and organza skirt is a must-try.
Ivory Wedding Dresses with Subtle Hints of Colour
Colour is a great way to add glow and tan to a bride's complexion on the day. For brides who want to use this to their advantage but still have an ivory dress for their wedding, try dresses with more subtle undertones of blush or nudes. Le Lee Studio's Passion A-line dress with soft tulle, cascading 3D lace and sweetheart body is perfect for this, with her light nude lining adding just enough colour to give a warm glow to a bride. For a more classic romantic look, the Lily Rose ballgown by Le Lee Studio, with its airy light skirt with light nude hints and ivory embroidered 3D floral lace that trickles down from the bodice to skirt, is the one to try.
