The Blushing Bride in 2016: Pink Wedding Dress Alternatives

Do you remember when Reese Witherspoon and Jessica Biel wore a pink wedding dress? From that moment, we started paying attention to the softer hued options for wedding dresses – not that we didn´t notice before, but we never dared – and for that we´ve been forever thankful. Now you can find pastel options and certainly a blush tone or two in the bridal collection of the most sought after designers including Monique Lhuillier, Alberta FerrettiJenny Packham, Justin Alexander, Houghton, and a few others. Here are our top picks from the hottest designers

Blush colored wedding dresses are for the daring yet sweet bride – the color is bold because it´s not traditional white, but these varying shades of dusky pink are also incredibly feminine. Plus, depending on the cutting of the dress, the color can come across sweet or sensual. The first Monique Lhuillier blush wedding dress with the tiered skirt, ball gown silhouette and sweetheart neckline is unmistakably traditional, and blush color give the dress an added sweetness. What is particularly lovely about the second dress is that the intricate lace detailing stands out more against the soft pink hue of the skirt and bodice. The same is true of the Alberta Ferretti blush wedding dress: the color is so subtle, you´d hardly notice it, but then the bright white of the lace detailing is all the more apparent because of that slight coloring.

The blush wedding dresses presented by Jenny Packham and Houghton are bolder and have a more bohemian look – especially the Houghton dress. The feathers on the Jenny Packham dress are a dynamic statement that is for more daring brides. The gorgeous movement of the tiered Hougton blush wedding dress is enhanced by the duskier pink tones and is so casually elegant that we could imagine wearing this dress again for other events (and there aren´t many wedding dresses you could say that about). The Justin Alexander blush wedding dress is the most subdued of the three, with sweet detailing like the beaded skirt.

Spanish designers Cabotine and Aire Barcelona have also included blush wedding dresses in their 2016 bridal collections. The Cabotine split leg and sweetheart neckline wedding dress is sexy and sensual. The Aire Barcelona ball gown dresses are very sweet and could be worn by a Disney princess.
