Wedding dress colors: a few thoughts
When you’re getting married, all details (monograms, colors, favors) matter. However, like many brides, the wedding dress may be your “pièce de resistance”, and should be as close to perfection as possible! Many opt to wear a white dress, but 1) there are several shades of white, and 2) different color wedding dresses have been all the rage these past few years. Making a choice between all of the variations can be tough. This article will review the different color options to help you decide how to add color to a wedding dress!
This is the “whitest” white. A stark, cool shade, pure white has forever been the classic wedding dress color choice. We see it a lot in our custom wedding dress orders, as it is ingrained in many cultures. Indeed, its pristine appearance still represents a symbol of purity in certain regions. This wedding dress color looks amazing in all fabrics but is especially stunning for pure minimalistic gowns, or dresses paired with silver-toned embellishments like sparkling crystals. When wearing pure white, we suggest to pair it with silver-toned embellishments like sparkling crystals.

Diamond white (off white)
Also referred to as off white, diamond white is a color that can make for a stunning wedding dress. Its hue is slightly warmer (and “milkier”) than pure white, giving it a softer and more universally flattering look. It is suitable to most skin tones and its toned-down color gives brides a romantic vibe; It has been gaining in popularity, as brides start exploring beyond traditional pure white.
