Wedding Gown Blues
That something blue is getting pretty bold
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue? Well, bridal blues are getting a whole lot bolder, especially when used in wedding gowns. Gone are the soft pastel blues reminiscent of robin’s eggs and Tiffany boxes. Designers are going bold, with touches of preppy navy to vibrant royal blues. Here are a few of our favorite something blue wedding gowns in bridal salons now:
A Hued Hem
Hey Upper East Siders, here’s a gown Blair Waldorf would swoon over. A simple, fitted silhouette with an on-trend high-low hem trimmed in every prepsters favorite shade: navy. We love the fabrication, silk faced satin, and how this classic gown is totally updated by adding the rich color border.
Leave it to Peter Copping of Oscar de la Renta to take the trappings of a classic bridal gown and rework them to create a modern stunner. Point d’esprit lace is rusched in the front and back over a form-fitting sillhouette, all pulled together with a perfectly tailored navy bow.
While color may not always be the norm in bridal gowns, floral patterns abound. Why not combine the two? Instead of a lace or embroidered floral pattern, go bold with this gorgeous royal blue hydrangea painted pattern. No wilting on these beauties.
A Bride of a Different Color
Looking for an alternative bridal look without going nearly naked (the latest trend) or full on goth? Try a gown in one shade, like this navy stunner by Tara La Tour. While not many brides will go all navy, this shade allows you to be different while still looking elegant, and dare we say traditional?
