Unexpected Color

"Color is my day-long obsession, joy and torment"
~Claude Monet 

When you think of a bride, the first color that comes to mind is naturally white.  But a trend that many brides are taking on lately is adding a pop of color in an unexpected way to their wedding day attire.  So where can you add that little bit of color (other than the typical bouquet, bridesmaid dresses, etc.) on your big day?

Under your dress:
Have the crinoline (or petticoat) under your wedding dress dyed to match your colors.

Your wedding day shoes:
Find some bright heels to wear under your dress.  They'll make you feel sexy and add that little bit of extra color.

In your hair:
Add a silk flower to your hair.  You can tie in your wedding colors and add a flirty, feminine touch to your look.

What do you think of this trend?  Would you add an unexpected pop of color to your wedding day look?

  1. Shawn is dying my crinoline yellow!!! My ma and I cut it out of my gown since I have no money for a new one when I have one that comes with MY dress. So I'm putting elastic in the waistband and wearing it under the dress.

  2. I'm a personal fan of the colored shoes. Plus that way they WILL get worn again. The pretty ivory pair I wore during our wedding sat in my closet until I donated them.

  3. @HiLLjO - The yellow sounds so pretty, can't wait to see pictures!

    @Krissy - I completely agree. I'm a huge fan of the bright, fun heels under a wedding dress.
