Tradition dictates that brides wear white on their wedding day and while many of us are happy to slip into a white or ivory gown, for some it just doesn’t feel quite right.
Here at You & Your Wedding HQ we’re big believers in having your day your way and so if white isn’t for you, we say you should eschew tradition and rock a gown that you love. Whether that means plumping for a blush or champagne coloured gown from a bridal collection or looking for something a little more quirky, we’re completely on-board.
With that said, we’re having a serious moment with red wedding dresses. Bold, vibrant and ever so slightly vampy, we think a red wedding gown is the perfect choice for daring brides who aren’t afraid to stand out.
One of the (many) reasons we adore red wedding dresses is their versatility; whether you’re a pillar-box red kind of girl or a deep red wine shade takes your fancy, you can find the right shade for you.
The fabrics you choose can also have a huge impact on your look; slim fitting satins will give an old Hollywood glamour vibe to your bridal look while floaty chiffon will give an ethereal feel. Ruffles and capes are perfect for fashionista brides who love having all eyes on them!
Whatever style or shade you choose, you’re guaranteed a memorable and unique bridal look that will have your guests talking for all the right reasons.
Now, allow us to introduce you to our favourite red wedding-worthy gowns from high end to high street and everything in between. Happy shopping!
