Roses are red, violets are blue, white is traditional, but we love pink too!
Not all brides are created equal. Some dream of wearing the traditional white or ivory wedding gown, while others can't wait to slip into something more colorful (think Gwen Stefani, Jessica Biel, and Reese Witherspoon).
I think blush pink is the perfect alternative to both white and bold colors like black, red, and blue. It's still feminine, romantic, and suitable for just about any wedding venue, but it's also just a tad off the beaten path.
If you're on the fence about what color gown to wear, here are five reasons to fall for a blush wedding dress.
1. Fits With a Variety of Themes
From retro to rustic, blush pink is a flexible color that any bride can pull off. Feeling the retro vibe? Try on a tea-length, strapless wedding dress in blush. Romantic fairy tale more your style? There are plenty of blush ballgowns with your name on it. This pink hue can be woven into the wedding decor too, especially when paired with gold, brown, black, and white.
2. A Whole Lot or a Hint
You can maximize or minimize your blush levels by creating a custom wedding gown that's either entirely pink or only shows a hint of the romantic shade. By designing your own wedding dress, you ensure that the amount of blush that the dress is made of is the perfect amount for you. Alternatively, you can wear a white wedding gown and accent it with a blush sash.
3. The Perfect Pair
A blush wedding dress with layers of lace is just about the sweetest combination I can think of. It takes romance to the next level and works perfectly with a vintage theme. Think Jane Austen, Emma, or a gorgeous Shakespearean sonnet.
4. The Awe Factor
Your guests might expect to see you walking down the aisle in white, so when you strut your stuff in soft pink, just think of the "oohs" and "aahhs" you'll receive. Not that your guests' reactions are what matter, but a little admiration is always nice.
5. Universally Flattering
No matter your skin tone, you can find a shade of pink that works for you. If you have a warm skin tone, look for a pink dress that has yellow or peach undertones. For cool skin tones, try on pinks that are grey and silver-based. Take a photo of yourself with the dress on so you can see how it looks against your skin.
