Pale, but certainly not just run-of-the-mill Ivory, these dresses will help you show off your unique style.
If a bride does not want to wear white, but still wants to look “bride”, she has more choice than blush and gray. Here we have rounded up some absolutely gorgeous lavender and peach wedding dresses.
These peach dresses (top and bottom) are not only a little more colorful, but they also have a magnificent texture with wrapped bodices, swirls of organza and many layers of lace.
Intrigued, but concerned? Stick to classic bridal silhouettes and lighter peach tones. By mixing layers of ivory and peach, this dress (top right) brightens overall, leaving a bit of mystery to its exact hue. At the bottom, this peach dress is covered with a layer of white lace, minimizing the amount of color. It’s a bit beyond the base, but it’s still pretty subtle for more traditional brides.
If you really like the look of a peach dress, but let your heart put on a white dress while walking down the aisle, buy two. Find a reception dress in a teasing peach tone, like the one shown below.
To be honest, I love a lavender wedding dress. This is a great choice for women who like the sophistication of a gray dress, but look a little better with a touch of purple in the mix (ideal for those of us who are a little pale themselves).
This dress below is by Monique Lhuillier and, frankly, could be the whole reason we’re conducting this discussion ever. This dress came out a few years ago and a wedding trend was born. Loaded with sequins and a sheer neckline (and of course pockets), this is definitely a brand new bridal statement.
Lighter tones of lavender can have a little more blue (top, left) or lean towards lilac (top, right). Find the most flattering shade for your own complexion and get the desired color saturation.
If you can not find a lavender wedding dress that you like, look at formal dresses in your favorite shade. This sequined dress below is not specifically designed for weddings, but it would be perfect at home if it floated down a hallway. Seriously, can’t you see that at a New Year’s wedding?!
For retro brides who also want to incorporate a bit of their theme into their dress, try a colorful lace tea length. Colorful lace was all the rage in the 1950s, so it’s a really seamless (and damn choose) look.
