How To Incorporate Colour Into Your Bridal Look

Not the average bride?

Adding colour into your wedding look has become less and less taboo as new styles and designs are gracing the aisles. Why not incorporate a subtle, or even bold, punch of non-white hues to amp up your wedding style even further and create ultimate goddess vibes on the big day. There are plenty of fabulous options to update your bridal style by using colour directly to your dress or with your accessories.

Whatever your vision may be, get creative and say “I do” to these ideas that offer the perfect way for you to become a bridal fashionista.

Flowers Crowns

Add some ‘wow’ to your hairdo with a bright coloured flower crown or headpiece. Perfect for a spring or summer wedding or a boho vibe. You can go soft and subtle or big and bold!

Who said you have to wear white shoes?! Get creative! Make them your ‘something blue’ or tie in your colour palette. Your shoes are the perfect place to add in your own personality and have a little fun with your bridal style.

If you’re looking for a more alternative gown, straying from traditional white, embroidery is a fabulous way to put your own stamp on your bridal style. Does this bride look cool, or what?!

Beautiful Blooms

If having colour directly on your wedding gown isn’t your thing, create an eye-catching bouquet for a bright and blooming pop of colour. You can’t go wrong.
