They may be wearing pink but brides daring enough to ditch traditional white gowns are anything but blushing.
In fact, a look at the upcoming collections of some of the world’s best-known wedding gown designers suggests a new breed of bride is emerging, one that’s sassy, sexy and confident enough to walk down the aisle in myriad hues of pink ranging from subdued dusky rose to bright and bold magenta.
Over the past few years, several A-list celebrities, including Reese Witherspoon, Anne Hathaway and Gwen Stefani, have opted for pink wedding gowns.
Jessica Biel, aka Mrs Justin Timberlake, recently spoke to Elle magazine about her stunning candy-coloured wedding gown.
She says, “I wanted the dress to be very romantic and feminine and a shape that I very rarely wear. I have never been crazy about all-white wedding dresses, for me at least. [Giambattista Valli] had created that same fabric in a fuchsia-and-pink combination for a dress in a previous collection, and I asked him if he could create that same pattern in a white combination, and he suggested pink.
“It was a bit of a leap of faith at the time, but it turned out better than I could have ever imagined. [Putting it on], I felt like I had made the right choice. I felt elegant. And it moved like a dream.”
From the looks of the collections below, we’ll be seeing plenty more pink wedding gowns in the coming year.
