Can Wedding Dresses Be Any Colour?

The majority of customers we have expect to buy their wedding dresses in white or off-white. This can be a very personal decision for many, and we completely respect that many brides will want a traditional wedding. However, that’s not to say that all brides are the same. We know that some of you will welcome the potential to break the mould and do something different. Therefore, we’ve put together a little guide to help you if you’re thinking of wearing anything but white on your big day.

Why Do Brides Wear White?

White is a colour that’s associated with purity. Most people consider white wedding dresses to be tradition. However, it’s not always been that way. In the distant past, brides would have worn any colour they liked. Because clothing was a luxury few could afford to wear once, they would buy a dress that could be worn again, or simply wear the best dress they already owned.

The tradition of wearing white began with Queen Victoria, and became mainstream in the 20th century. The white dress has been around for so long that it feels like a tradition that will never change. However, there’s nothing to say that you can’t break tradition for your big day.

Which Other Colours Work For Wedding Dresses?

The only limitation is what you’re comfortable with! If you want to break the mould and go for a wedding dress that isn’t white, there shouldn’t be anything to stop you. Whether you’re more comfortable wearing pastels like lavender or peach, or would like to make a statement with royal blue or red, don’t let tradition limit your options.

Non-traditional wedding dresses can still look classy, sophisticated and elegant. Plus, you can still pair them with traditional accessories so you’ll still feel like a bride. You can match your veil, bouquet and bridesmaids to whichever colour you choose.

The Best Wedding Dresses For You

The best dress for you will be the one you feel most comfortable in. It’s really important to give yourself plenty of time to choose. Make sure you look at lots of different styles and colours before making a final decision.

If you feel like you’d like to see some wedding dresses in colours other than white, a good place to start is your wardrobe. Pick out the items that you feel most confident wearing. If you have a dress or t-shirt that always attracts compliments, add those to the list. Make a note of the colours that stand out most. You can even bring a few items of clothing to the bridal boutique. Then, you’ve got a good idea of which colours are best to try on.
