5 Unique Ways to Incorporate Color Into Your Wedding Attire
Traditional white has been the go-to wedding dress color forever in Western cultures, and while white is beautiful, it can also be a little boring. This is especially the case for brides who prefer to make a bold statement with bright colors in their day-to-day wardrobe. Looking for some unique ways to incorporate color into your wedding attire?
Five colorful wedding attire tips:
Pick shoes with pizazz
It may seem obvious, but it’s a classic for a reason: Nothing is more effortlessly chic than incorporating a pop of color on a shoe. This is a favorite pick for fulfilling the “something blue” tradition, but it can also be a great place to integrate a pattern that love.
Adorn your hair
If you want to feel like a queen on the big day, why not wear a headpiece that shows it? Wearing a flower-laden crown or tiara with colorful gems can be an easy and trendy way to add a little color to your ensemble. If you want to go for a less literal “princess” vibe, consider adding in a simple vintage-style comb with some colorful ornamentation or a veil with some vibrant embroidery.

Let the flowers speak
In the Victorian era, flowers were used to communicate messages. Why not let that apply to your wedding? Carrying a colorful bouquet that matches your wedding theme not only enhances the look of your wedding photos, but can also be a great way to give your ensemble a little life. Don’t feel like holding flowers at all times? Weave some plants into your hair for a beautiful wood nymph feel.
Pop on a lippie
Colorful lipstick will not only make a bold fashion statement, but they will also make your lips look extra luscious and perfectly kissable for the big moment. Just keep in mind that a bold lipstick can be easily smudged, especially when drinking champagne and eating delicious food (and kissing on your new spouse, duh).
Nip in at the waist
Bejeweled belts are a favorite accessory for many brides, so why not take it to the next level? Rather than picking out a belt that simply has some jewels shimmering on it, consider utilizing the colorful ribbon instead. If you want to make yourself look extra polished, be sure to snag a ribbon that matches your event’s color palette.
