Think Pink for your wedding dress...
New wedding trend alert... do you dare pink??
As we all know, the first few months of each year are the most popular for marriage proposals and wedding planning (for those who proposed and accepted around Christmas - anther popular time!). We should know as we see a huge spike in enquiries at this time of year. But as wedding fever hits, what is the new aisle style? Author Lucy Tobin, who has just published a new book 'From Yes to I Do' reckons that coloured wedding dresses - and specifically pink dresses - are in! Fashion designer Vera Wang's Autumn 2014 collection was solely pink and designer Jenny Packham reckons that hand-painted silk gowns are racing out of the door. This doesn't surprise us, as white can be a hard colour to wear, especially for older brides. And
last year celebrities Jessica Biel, Anna Hathaway and Margherita Missoni all defied tradition by wearing pink gowns on their wedding days - ranging in shades of coral to peony. And remember Marilyn Monroe's Schiaparelli pink gown in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes!! Also worth noting that electric-pink lipstick is in - so brides are definitely becoming more irreverent.... Send us your photos if you dare to wear pink!
