Is Wearing Color the "New" White for Weddings?

This week I wanted to talk about colors for weddings and what better way to start off by talking about what to wear on your wedding day.  Out with the old, in with the new...who says you have to wear white on your wedding day?  The days of just bridesmaids wearing "color" down the aisle is becoming obsolete.  For the upcoming 2012-2013 wedding season, designers have created dresses for brides in different colors and no longer the traditional white... from green to red and even black.

It has been customary for a bride to wear white on her wedding day.  However, these days brides are choosing to wear what they want, whether it is white, bold colors (red, burgundy or black), neutral colors (ivory or pink), or a short or long gown -- many brides are opting out of the traditional way.

It is common for different cultures to wear different colors other than white on their wedding day, but not common for American culture.  "Old school" parents, grandparents, etc., may have a problem with their daughter and/or granddaughter wearing anything but white on her wedding day because it has always been tradition to wear white.

Vera Wang's 2012 Fall Collection offered black  gowns and her 2013 Spring Collection offers bold colors for the "modern" bride.  Below are pictures from the Vera Wang 2012 Fall and 2013 Spring bridal collections.

I love these red bold colors and can't wait to see what bold color Vera Wang has created for her 2013 Fall collection.  Would you be so bold to wear any of these colors on your wedding day?
