If you don’t want to be too traditional, but you aren’t yet ready to go for a bold hue, try a pastel. Something like a light yellow or light pink should be right up your alley. These colors still have the delicateness of white, and they don’t add too much playfulness to formal weddings. If this sounds like you, Anne Hathaway’s light pink gown will serve as a fitting inspiration.
White is a classic, but so is black. You can go the same route as Shenae Grimes by heading to the dark side. If you want to take it to the next level, have the groom wear all-black, so you can match. Although black may seem very unconventional for a wedding, you can still feel elegant and pretty in it.
Break away from all wedding traditions and go for something bold! According to the Daily Mail, one in 10 brides would wear red, and four percent would wear blue. By choosing something colorful, there’s no doubt that you’ll be the center of attention. This is, after all, what many brides strive for on their special day. Since most colors are symbolic for certain emotions—red is usually associated with love—your wedding dress can be a representation of that.
