Tradition is often a recurring theme when it comes to weddings. Whether it be the addition of something blue or wearing a white wedding dress – most brides tend to opt for traditional aspects when it comes to dressing for their big day. With lots of changes to weddings in the past few years we are seeing more and more brides wanting to shake up their wedding day and go down a more modern route. One of the bigger trends this year is the black wedding dress. Wearing anything other than white on the big day seems unique but it is becoming ever so popular, and not just black dresses but any colour of the rainbow including shades of pink and blue and red.
Wearing a modern colour at your wedding will leave all eyes on you – in the best way possible. If black isn’t your style for the wedding you can always wear it, or another colour, to your reception for a bold outfit change. For some 'other than white' wedding dress inspiration seek out Sarah Jessica Parker who stunned in black or Jessica Biel who was pretty in pink.
