We all know that, historically, brides wore white to signify purity. I'm not one to judge, so I've added color into my bridal collection, David Tutera for Mon Cheri, for a variety of reasons.
Now, mind you, colored gowns are not for everybody, and I still love it when brides wear white! Some brides just wear white because it is so traditionally bridal, and others use the white gown to signify the purity of their love and fresh start for their marriage. But modern brides are no longer holding back on their personalities because of what tradition dictates.
In each of my collections (and increasingly so with every collection), I've been infusing color into my bridal gowns. When you wear something other than white, it makes you stand out and makes your wedding unique. It's been an exciting process to bring dresses of all colors to my brides, like soft peach, silver, gold, lavender, sky blue, and soft blush. Plus, color can be done in either a modest, understated way or in an obvious way for more daring brides. But if you do wear color, put your bridesmaids in a darker hue than your gown (never white).
Remember, your dress and everything about it says a lot about you. I want you to look your best while still feeling like the woman you are!
