Blue wedding dresses - a color you can't go wrong with

Recently creeping onto the bridal scene are blue wedding dresses, and in particular, baby blue seems to be the hue of choice.

They’ve been heavily featured in Spring 2013 catwalk shows by designers like Alfred Angelo and Elie Saab, whose gorgeous baby blue lace creation was worn in the final episode of the popular TV show, Gossip Girl, for the marriage of Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass.

The colour conveys loyalty, which is something that every bride-to-be wants to convey when exchanging vows with her soul-mate, as well as honour, stability, and reliability. 

Blue bridal gowns are frequently chosen for winter weddings (imagine how perfect they look against a snowy backdrop) as well as spring weddings. Just like pale pink, baby blue gowns overlaid with lace can give a true fairytale princess impression.

Although your reasons for considering a coloured wedding dress may be more to do with breaking the traditional bright-white dress mould, you should also consider which shade is best suited to your skin tone. Light blues will really enhance medium to dark skin tones, whilst paler complexions and blue eyes will benefit from darker, more vibrant shades like sapphire and Caribbean blue, which have also been spotted on the catwalks this year.

If you’re a bride-to-be who’s yearning for something that little bit different, blue wedding dresses offer a soft and feminine option which will help you stand out on your special day. Plus, this shade provides endless possibilities for theming other elements, such as your floral bouquet, bridesmaid dresses, and even invitations.
