Wedding Dresses 101: Colors

Your wedding dress is more than just a piece of clothing. 

It is a symbol, a souvenir, and a dream all rolled in one. 

Therefore, it makes all the sense in the world that you would want your wedding gown to be nothing less than perfect. 

With so many options when it comes to everything connected to wedding dresses, however, it also makes a lot of sense to feel confused.

Here at Savvi NC, we want you to be able to filter down through all the options and choose the one dress that will make you feel absolutely stunning on your wedding day. And for this purpose, we will start a series of articles, here, on our blog, to walk you through some of the most important elements of a wedding dress, as well as some of their most popular varieties. 

Let’s start with what is probably the single most debated wedding dress element: the color. 

Traditionally, the color of a wedding dress is, well, white. However, things have not always been this way. In fact, the white wedding gown custom is only a mere 200 years old and it started during the Victorian Era in England, when Queen Victoria herself wore a white dress to her wedding. 

These days, this tradition can be left aside if that is what you wish for. You can wear a blue dress, a red dress, or even a black one if that’s what makes you happy. It isn’t very common, as many brides still stick to the traditional white, but it can be done (and you should do it if it makes you feel great!). 

Beyond colored wedding dresses, white gowns themselves come in a pretty large variety of shades as well. Then there are also the most popular variants include ivory and champagne – both of which come in a myriad of design options.  

In general, as a rule of thumb, if you have a cool-toned skin, you should opt for an ivory or silvery white. If, however, you have a warmer toned skin, you might want to choose a warmer toned dress (such as a champagne white or something with gold inserts/ details). 

In the end, you choose what makes you feel beautiful! And we are proud to say that Savvi NChas a splendid variety of designer wedding dresses for all tastes and styles. Contact us today and come see for yourself!
