Is it teething time for your little one?
Girls usually imagine the day they’re getting married in a white dress. However, who says you need to be in a white dress to get married? Increasingly, more and more people are choosing to wear dresses of colors other than white. Just as there are many varied styles of cuts, veils, and gowns, there are more and more options available for dress colors.
If you have never been particularly enamored of the classic white wedding dress, or just of wearing white in general, you should know that you have other options. As many have, you can also opt for a non-white wedding dress on your big day. Here are just some of the reasons why you should consider a non-white wedding dress.
Go Against the Grain
One of the main reasons why you should consider a non-white wedding dress is to go against the grain and be unique for your own wedding. Since everyone else usually wears white for theirs, why don’t you wear a different color? This will set you apart from other weddings and make your wedding more memorable. On top of that, your guests will also be able to see something unexpected and hopefully, this will also entertain them.
Celebrities Chose Not to Wear White
Celebrities set trends, and celebrity weddings are the events to go to. As opposed to following what’s trendy and traditional, there are a few celebrity brides who opted not to wear white for their wedding. This is another reason why you should consider a non-white wedding dress. Many celebrity brides have tried wearing a different color on their wedding day, especially if it wasn’t their first. If they could, you can too.
Put Your Personality into It
What you wear often is something you use to express yourself. So, why shouldn’t it apply to your own wedding? Jazz up your look by opting for a non-white gown for your wedding. If you like flowers, you can put your personality into your wedding dress by wearing a floral gown with the brightest flowers for your big day. Alternatively, if you’re an artist, you can even paint into your gown to make it look more you.
White Isn’t Your Color
If white isn't your color, don’t force it. You can choose not to wear white if another kind of color suits you. For instance, your skin tone is already too fair, and colors that complement your skin are darker ones. Then, you can choose to wear a wedding dress that isn’t white. Instead, choose a color that complements your skin. It’s your big day, and you should look your best.
Same-Sex Weddings
Another reason why some people opt not to wear white in their weddings is because their partner is already wearing white. For same-sex weddings, if one of the partners is already wearing white, the other partner would opt for a different color to complement it. This will also look better.
All in the Name of Fashion
Who says you’re not allowed to be fashionable in your own wedding? If fashionable means a different color, then you should consider wearing a non-white dress. Be fashionable and wear a gown that looks like it’s for a big day. Especially when you’re on a budget, choosing a non-white dress will make you look even more fashionable. This will bring a unique flair to your overall look.
Comfort is Key
Weddings can be very nerve-racking. This is why, as a bride, you should wear whatever makes you feel comfortable. If white isn’t something you can work with, consider wearing a non-white gown to help you feel more comfortable and beautiful. In weddings, comfort is key.
Brides Around the World Wear Different Colors
You don’t need to be set on wearing white on your wedding day. This is because wearing white isn’t a rule, and brides around the world wear different colors to their wedding. For instance, in India, brides often wear very vibrant colors to their wedding. On the other hand, traditional weddings in China have their brides wear red for luck. On the other hand, brides in Indonesia often wear colorful dresses with intricate patterns on their wedding day.
In a nutshell, it’s your day anyway. You should be able to wear whatever kind of wedding dress you want. Remember that weddings only usually happen once in a lifetime. So, be daring and don’t follow the rules. Wear what you think is beautiful and whatever is more you. Go for it!
