Blue Silk Underlay via Claire Pettibone
A little "something blue" has been a part of wedding tradition much longer than any of us have been dreaming of wedding dresses. There is something about blue wedding gowns, no matter how subtle or bold, that feels like the perfect blend of bold and daring, yet classic and traditional. Wearing blue on your wedding day is a great way to pull off a colorful gown. And if your opinionated Aunt has anything to say, we recommend quoting the good old "Something blue" rhyme with a sweet smile on your face and enjoy your day! If you've ever dreamed of wearing blue (or if you are starting to now), it's the perfect time as there were so many gorgeous shades of blue on the runway this Fall at Bridal Market. We were especially fond of the blue silk underlays at the Claire Pettibone runway show. The silk lining felt like a good balance between blue and white for a wedding dress in our opinion! And another option that we completely fell in love with, is this one from one of our newest designer's we picked up at market, Christos Collection -
Mint and Ivory Layered Tulle via Christos Bridal
This is perfect a bride looking to add a subtle touch, but still have a gown that feels ivory overall! And while we know mint is more of a green, we still felt like this was a perfect example of this trend all our brides can actually wear! A layer of the prettiest shade of mint tulle is layered with soft ivory tulle, creating a subtle illusion that adds a extra dose of personality and uniqueness to this gown. The longer we watched this gown move around and watched as the mint shown through in certain lights and showed up with certain movement, the more we fell in love!
