What are sub­tle ways to wear colour on your wedding day?

Think about adding colour in the un­der lay­ers of the gown, a soft colour lin­ing un­der­neath lay­ers of tulle or lace can cre­ate a sub­tle hint of colour that is vis­i­ble but soft in ap­pear­ance. If you en­vi­sion a com­pletely coloured gown‚ but want to have a sub­tle feel, look to­wards soft or pas­tel shades.

Blush and cham­pagne are two pretty com­mon ways to ex­per­i­ment with gown colour. What are some other colours you’re see­ing peo­ple play with?

Soft lilacs and mauves, pale blues [like the pic­tured gown by Ka­t­rina Tut­tle] and muted greys are be­com­ing more pop­u­lar for the bride look­ing to add colour in her wedding gown.

What’s your ad­vice to some­one who wants to take it up a notch, and go for some­thing a lit­tle more vi­brant?

Pair a bold colour with clas­sic sil­hou­ettes and time­less de­tails. Bold colour can be a great op­tion for the bride who has never en­vi­sioned her gown in the tra­di­tional bridal shades. Think about how you want to look on your wedding day but also, how you want to feel when you look back at your pho­tos in years to come. If you choose to add colour to your gown pick a shade that is clas­sic in your eyes.
