The most common color for a wedding gown is, of course, white.
Queen Victoria, who got married in a white lace gown, started the white wedding gown trend, and for centuries, that's the only color for wedding gowns. Today, modern brides begin to break the mold and opt for various colors. For a bold bride like you, why not add a splash of color to the mix? 2021 is here with so many choices of color; let's discover your preferred color for your wedding gown with us!
Color trends of 2021

How to incorporate these color trends for your wedding gown?
Marigold is yellow/orange and is called the same-named plant. The first time marigold was used as a color name is uncertain. Marigold flowers symbolize happiness, optimism, energy, and good luck. Its vibrant color goes well with blue as yellow commands attention, while shades of deep blue or washed-out green act as near-neutrals, effortlessly blending into any wardrobe (no matter how vibrant or muted). It's a head-turner, a statement-maker, and an eye-catcher. Typically, this wedding dress color is best fit for bridesmaids' dresses rather than brides'. However, if this is your favorite color, why not?
On a calm, clear day, this is the tone of the sky. Given the current state of the planet and the fact that we're choosing to celebrate the little joyous moment, it's no surprise that this is the color of choice for the coming season. Wearing your wedding gown as "something blue" will add a touch of enchanted magic to your wedding look, which is perfect for a poetic fine art wedding.
Looking for a slightly different shape of blue? French blue might be the answer for you.
Is there a distinction between cerulean and French blue? Although it may be difficult to tell the difference, at first sight, cerulean is usually lighter. On the other hand, French blue is a vibrant blue that conjures up images of springtime in Paris. Blue can be used as a neutral in some situations, but it also goes well with a wide variety of other colors, including bright hues like orange and red and more muted neutral tones like beige and gray.
A vibrant yellow that promises a bright day, pleasant and cheerful, this happy hue representing optimism, confidence, and friendliness will brighten up every winter outfit and turn some heads. Whether you're aiming for a bold look or looking for accessories to balance your most simple outfits, this color will act as a pop color. When it comes to wedding dress styling, we love a yellow gown for a bolder look that will stand out in the aisle of Oregon Ash arches in the summertime.
According to Pantone, this is a mentholated Green that cools and soothes. Belonging to the hue house, Green Ash brings the dyed up, posed vibe with a little bit of cheekiness and mystery. As the color of trees, this aesthetic color symbolize rebirth and renewal, and immortality.
The amethyst orchid in a floral shade adds a special touch. Purple wedding gowns became extremely popular in 2018 as one of the most beloved bridal runway trends. Purple has become a more acceptable wedding color these days, and it has expanded the surreal color palette for brides who want something unusual, something fresh, and something trendy. They could be a great choice for brides who don't want to look too sweet but still wants something eye-catching, as they have a much more sophisticated and mature look. It's definitely dreamy!
Buttercream paint is a color that is smooth as butter but bold enough to pose alone. This mellow yellow is not only a mood-lifter, but it's also surprisingly cozy and works well in both bold and neutral colors.
Ultimate grey is an unusual color for a wedding dress. Yet, grey is quietly assuring and reassuring and promoting calm. Like Hillary Duff's wedding style statement, a smoky grey dress redefines the essence of bridal cool. The look is glam with a dash of edginess!
