Pastel shade wedding gowns are soothing to the eye
Pretty pastel shades have always been in fashion and have remained a favorite for brides and bridesmaids over recent time. Their soothing, muted colors provide a fashionable and classy feel to an outfit, and add that trendy pop of color without going over the top. Thanks to their ability to bend the traditional “white wedding rule” without being jarring and unsuitable for traditional families [and in-laws!], an elaborately detailed pastel shaded gown with generous lace detailing and organza overlays is ideal for the bride who loves making a fashion statement without raising controversy.
Among the many wedding gown designers who have embraced pastel shades and accessories, Romona Keveza enjoys bringing forth her favorite pastel shade, mint, via her collection of wedding gowns. The gowns themselves are usually strapless and come in dark to light shades of mint. Accessorizing is minimal with a lace veil or bunch of flowers in contrasting shades.
Blush pastel shades include light to dark shades of peach, pink and the lightest shades of red, and are a favorite with a majority of brides due to their clichéd and popular “blushing bride” appeal. Brides, who want to bring forth this popular look, enjoy romantic, flowy lace, plenty of velvet, taffeta and organza, and matching accessories. One of the most popular dresses in this shade is the Sleeping Beauty wedding gown by designer Alfred Angelo, which not only comes with dreamy, romantic appeal, but is also budget-friendly as it retails for less than $1000.
Pastel blue shades are soothing to the eye and offer romantic appeal; these shades are also among designer Romona Keveza’s favorites, and a popular wedding dress in this shade is constructed from silk and taffeta. Calming, cool, and elegant, this shade would suit a beach or poolside wedding. The dress can be accessorized with diamonds, pearls, and other white stones, all of which complement the blue shade.
Shades of yellow and light gold are figure flattering and bring forth that feel of opulence without overdoing it. Nothing exudes grandeur like a yellow-gold shaded wedding gown with a long train, rich ruching and detail at the waist, and a corset top, which skims the bust. Some vintage gowns even offer handmade lace detailing in the same shade. An ideal look to complement this gown would involve piling hair up into a bouffant style and adding a large statement necklace or chandelier earrings to complete the look.
Most pastel shade wedding gowns are corset style although other variations do exist. The colors are rich enough without being overpowering, and for those who enjoy detailing, there are plenty of laces, taffeta, satin, and organza additions on offer, which can transform it. Accessorizing a pastel shade gown is easy enough as white and shades of white are most complementary, followed by gold and silver for those who want a more opulent feel. For those brides who want the calming and soothing nature of these shades to reflect on their look, it is also possible to simply carry flowers or wear a corsage.
