Do you dare to break the mould and wear something a little bit more fashion forward? Allot of brides are steering away from the traditional ballroom gown and indulging in shorter length wedding dresses. These gowns allow the brides to be more creative in their choice of shoes. This makes things interesting in the fashion scene and for designers to get creative with their imaginations.

Who said colour is just for your bridesmaids? Coloured wedding dresses are becoming much admired. Last year Jessica Biel, Anne Hathaway and Margherita Missoni defied tradition to wear pink gowns on their respective wedding days. Clearly Vera Wang, who has long pushed the envelope with her bridal collections, took notice. This dress is from Vera Wang’s fall 2014 line up.


 Some brides break all traditions and stand out on their big day in a dress that is truly unique by wearing the colour of their choice. I’m not talking a splash of blue or different coloured pair of shoes. A non-white wedding dress can incorporate designer dresses and evening or special occasion wear in to your shortlist of potential gowns, giving you much more choice.
