TREND: Colored Wedding Dresses
“Blushing bride” takes on a whole new meaning, as traditional white dresses take a back seat to gowns with a little more color. Malinda Macari knows what brides want and, when it comes to the dress, they don’t want white. Brides prefer variations of ivory or go bolder with blush, champagne, mocha and rose gold. “I had a friend who even sold a dress in lavender,” she says. Color is also creeping into bridal jewelry. Platinum is no longer a must-have, Macari says. Brides are requesting rose gold; some gowns incorporate the color via metallic thread woven through the gown.
