Every bride wants to put a unique touch to their wedding to make the day extra special and memorable. Whether it is shown through the menu, location, choice of band or color scheme, these little touches can really WOW a wedding guest. The new trends in fashion, décor and food have turned the traditional wedding into a thing of the past.
Brides are now expressing themselves by choosing colored jewelry, shoes and even colored wedding gowns. Trend setter and rocker Gwen Stefani wore a striking ombre white and pink gown on her 2001 wedding day. Now a number of celebrities have followed in her footsteps. Anne Hathaway, Reese Witherspoon and Jessica Biel all wore blush pink wedding gowns. Sarah Jessica Parker and Shenae Grimes both donned black wedding gowns. Vera Wang’s newer collections are featuring black accents and detail.
If you are not daring enough to wear a colored gown then stick to white or ivory and accent with brightly colored jewelry or shoes. Many brides wear blue shoes for their “something blue.” Kate Spade and Badgley Mischka offer unique colored shoe options for any bride’s color scheme.
In the past, brides would traditionally stick with simple pearls and diamonds for their wedding jewelry, but today brides are embracing an array of colored stones to complete their look. Summer brides pair coral or turquoise earrings to accent the warm weather. Stunning stones like ruby, emerald, blue topaz and amethyst can add the perfect pop of color. Yanina & Co. offers custom wedding earrings and pendants for any price range or color.
With countless products available and planning websites like TheKnot.com and Pinterest, brides have a vast world of options and resources to plan their perfect wedding day. Being daring with colors will leave long lasting memories and a personal touch.
