The Year of Color

Three years ago when we created our blog, one of our first few posts already rallied to go for colored gowns. To be more specific, we entitled the entry "Anti-White" and it was our 9th post in the blog. This has always been one of our "propaganda movements." 

Over the past few years since that post, we've been so overjoyed to see the same battle cry from fashion heavyweights the likes of Vera Wang. So when the folks over at Simply Bridal shared with us their 2014 Fearless Forecast, we couldn't be happier. According to Simply Bridal, they predict that 2014 is DEFINITELY the year for colored gowns. So in support of their forecast, we've scoured the web to also give you sample gowns based on their forecast. Enjoy! :)

Simply Bridal says: 2014 is the year of going against the grain with weddings, especially when it comes to color! Instead of traditional white wedding gowns, brides will select colored gowns to show off their unique style and personality. Here's some of the hottest hues for wedding dresses and what they say about you:

If you are a regular RB reader, you know by now that the belief embedded in our society that white is the traditional color of gowns since time and immemorial is one of the BIGGEST FATTEST LIES to date. But in case you haven't read our feature on this yet, VISIT: THE LITTLE WHITE LIE

So what now rebels? Are you finally ready to take the big leap towards colored gowns? Always remember that this is NOT about following the latest trends in weddings.

  1. I'll be wearing a red gown to my 2015 wedding for the ceremony and most of the reception, and a black gown to dance in. Can't wait!

  2. All dresses are very beautiful but my favorite is red & dazzling blue.

  3. I would recommend my new dress to someone looking for a fun, fitted special occasion outfit! The seller was also very polite and responsive to emails.
