With celebrity brides like Jessica Biel and Reese Witherspoon wearing stunning pink gowns to their nuptials, it’s no wonder that this unique hue has become the star of bridal week. In fact, Portia de Rossi was ahead of the trend and wore this in 2008!
In fact, it’s the original “blushing bride” hue.
Available across all pricepoints, light shades of pink have been found at almost every bridal presentation this week. This dramatic pink tulle gown with ivory silk organza flower appliqué with lace embroidery paired with a pink tulle wrap closed the Oscar de la Renta show (shown at left). Meanwhile, over at David’s Bridal, brides on a budget can find a similarly striking look.
“Our latest pink, Petal, looks so good on so many different skin tones,” says Juliana Chan, senior dress designer at David’s Bridal. “That’s because it’s not a cotton-candy pink – it’s really the newest neutral. There’s such a versatility to pink, too – it looks amazing whether you’re having a vintage inspired country-weekend wedding or going formal and princess-y.”
With such a wide variety of styles and shades to choose from, pink is no longer considered kitschy or over-the-top. Instead brides who are looking for a modern interpretation of a traditional gown are turning to the color for an updated and trendy look.
Another exciting development is the availability of light pink accessories – perfect for those brides interested in the trend but not quite ready to sign up for a full gown.
A simple ribbon sash or even a glittery pink headband will have just the right amount of impact without sending those traditionalist types into a tailspin.
Whether it’s in the accessories or the gowns, it seems that pink in the bridal world is here to stay. Portraying a romantic vibe and with the uncanny ability to flatter almost everyone this is one trend all future brides should definitely consider.
