This year pink wedding dresses are a huge trend. With celebrities like Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, Anne Hathaway, Reese Witherspoon, Gwen Stefani and Jessica Biel wearing the color, how could everyone else not join in?
Fashion experts and wedding dress lovers across the nation agree on the popularity of the new trend. Many go-to wedding sites are chiming in their opinions on the new blush-pink dress trend.
According to Brides.com, “head to toe blush gowns are the new normal.”
Personally, I am a traditionalist when it comes to weddings and believe that all brides should wear white, but I can’t deny, the pink gowns are beautiful.
Soundtracktoido.com writes: “Just like music, fashion speaks as well. Femininity and romance are characterized by the color pink and what more romantic day than your wedding day? These blush dresses make a statement.”
Additionally, many designers, such as Vera Wang, Carolina Herrera and Monique Lhuillier, have used pink as an accent color on bridal gowns in the past.
During the spring 2013 wedding dresses season, however, pink was less an accent and more the star of the runways.
It’s not just pink making a splash in bridal trends this season — it’s color in general.
There have been numerous spottings of celebrity brides in yellow, green, red, purple and even black dresses on their big days.
The Huffington Post got it right when they said: “Remember that time we speculated that after Reese Witherspoon and Anne Hathaway in pink, and Amber Tamblyn in yellow, colored wedding dresses were a thing? Apparently Jessica Biel went and wore a pink and white gown to her Italian wedding. So there you have it: After not one, not two but three pink wedding dresses (plus some yellow and green thrown in for good measure), the trend for colored wedding dresses is official.”
It’s well known that pink, or blush, is flattering on almost every skin tone; as opposed to white, which generally only looks good on some.
Skin tone aside, it may not be a good reason to shy away from tradition.
There are a lot of people that may disagree, but if you plan on wearing pink on your wedding day, make sure it’s because you want to make that statement, not because it looks better on you than white does or because celebrities are doing it.
With all of this in mind, there have been some noteworthy things started because of this trend.
For example, a new magazine called “The Pink Bride” has been created. The magazine provides “local pictures, wedding stories and planning advice from many of Tennessee’s best wedding professionals.” The publication has also been producing bridal shows since 2000, according to its website.
Additionally, “Brides” magazine started an initiative called “Something Pink,” which supports research on breast cancer, according to Style.com.
“They asked 21 designers to create custom gowns in a rose-colored theme, with the proceeds going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.”
No matter what your stance is on colored wedding dresses or the rising trend of pink gowns, we can all agree that for the most part, wedding dresses are beautiful no matter what.
With colored dresses being a trend across the nation and more brides getting the guts to step outside the box, don’t be afraid to try it yourself.
If a colored dress is your thing, go for it.
