Besides the classic white bridal gown, more brides are choosing dark-coloured bridal gowns during the second march in. In fact, there is a bigger emphasis on the evening bridal gown.
There is no hard and fast rule that you need to wear a white wedding gown on your wedding day, so loosen up yourself a little. Choose something out of the norm and yet still look fabulous!
Dark-coloured Bridal Gowns #1 : Dark Blue Bridal Gown
The colour blue is said to be one which exhibits inner security and confidence. It is also the colour symbolising calmness and serenity. Many brides choose dark blue as their evening bridal gown! The more popular shades of dark blue are usually navy blue or royal blue.
The two dark blue bridal gowns shown below are of the more body-hugging bridal gown cutting – mermaid bridal gown.
On picture A – The scrunched up detail at the waistline of the navy blue bridal gown helps define your curves. At the same time, the gown does not show a ‘flat’ look as the scrunched effects give some volume and ‘life’ to the bridal gown.
On picture B – A very sparkly navy blue bridal gown, shining its way through its silver shimmering glitter. What more is that, with a sexy deep V-neckline, stealing the limelight is definitely inevitable!
The other two dark blue bridal gowns are ball-gown designs. Coupling the ball-gown cutting and the shade of dark blue, elegance is certainly empowering.
If you are wondering, dark blue bridal gowns go best with silver accessories and heels due to the cool tones. Unless the colours are more muted, accessories with warmer tones will clash with the colours.
Dark-coloured Bridal Gowns #2 : Black Bridal Gown
Taboos aside, there is just something so special about black bridal gowns. They reflect the confidence of the brides to buck tradition. Plus, black bridal gowns may not always be a solid black bridal gown made of satin. That is kind of morbid, if you ask us.
Instead, choose something funkier and unique like the black lace bridal gown below. It has an illusion front and back lace design. Pairing it with a modest nude satin as its base colour helps to bring out the black embroidery prints even better. Remember, the type of fabric you choose for your bridal gowns plays a significant role too!
Or, you can present the uniqueness a notch higher by choosing a black metallic or black-base with golden rose-printed bridal gown like the one below! The sparkly look brightens up the whole bridal gown and reduces the monotonous and solemnness attached to black.
Dark-coloured Bridal Gowns #3 : Maroon Bridal Gown
If you are afraid of looking like a walking ‘red-packet’ on your wedding day, then bright oriental red is out. Of course, unless your wedding theme and venue has the oriental look and feel, otherwise, you may want to dull the brightness a little.
You can choose to do so by opting for a maroon bridal gown instead! There is something so sexy and alluring about maroon. Think hot maroon lips – something mysterious yet exotic at the same time. Ooh-la-la!
You may even opt for a maroon bridal gown with gradient colour, just to spice things up a little!
If you’d like, adding some 3-D embellishments on your maroon bridal gown is a great choice for a visual feast too!
