Spring 2013 Blue Wedding Dress Trend: The New Shade of Elegance
The color of rhapsody and romantic moons, the blue wedding dress is one of our favorite new trends for Spring 2013. Especially elegant in softer shades, the blue wedding dress trend will make even the most traditional white-gown-loving bride swoon.
Oscar de la Renta created a handful of beautiful powdery-blue and white bridal gowns for Spring 2013. We love this collection’s gorgeous ice silk faille, blue satin and blue tulle. The over-skirt in fluffy layered blue tulle above adds some dreamy fairy tale flow to a white sequin column gown.
Play with adding pretty accessories that don’t outshine your blue or blue/white wedding gown. Try complimentary white, silver or blue wedding shoes in your favorite style. Show off a manicure that highlights the ring finger in shades of glittery periwinkle or cornflower hues.
Designer Rosa Clara definitely knows how to dress a bride in subtle blues with sophistication and elegance. Clara’s Spring 2013 collection features blue bridal gowns so light, airy and feminine. We love the sexy fluidity of the blue satin crepe bridal dress (top photo) and the sweet sensibility of her sleeveless high-neck gown in embroidered blue organza.
When we think of brilliant bridal couture, designer Douglas Hannant‘s name always comes to mind as one of the best in the business. This Hannant wedding gown in blue and white floral print is a stunner, definitely for the bride who considers the wedding ceremony her red carpet moment!
Can’t afford a designer wedding dress but would love to wear blue? There are some great dress designers on Etsy who would love to custom-make a gorgeous blue wedding dress just for you.
Consider a Wonderuxe bridal gown in your favorite blue, with crystal bodice and ribbon-tie back. Go short and frilly with a custom silk chiffon wedding dress from Holly Stalder, styled here for a bohemian look. Or transform into a Cinderella-inspired bride in a light blue satin ball gown from Avail & Company.
The color blue conveys confidence, stability and unity. That’s pretty perfect for a wedding day any time of year!
