Look at more than two wedding gown websites and it’ll probably hit you that strapless ballgowns have kind of become the industry standard. Sure, it’s a cut that’s almost universally flattering, but is it really you? If you’re harboring some Disney Princess aspirations, I say go for it! There’s no better day to be in a ballgown, walking towards your Prince Charming. For everyone else however, it can be a frustrating process to find a dress that speaks to your individuality as a person…much less a bride. If you’re reading this and nodding sympathetically, I’ve got you covered. Here are some ideas you can consider adopting for your own big entrance.

First up…. Idea #1: Opt for colour

In an industry built on white, a coloured gown is the easiest way to make a style statement. To be honest, coloured wedding dresses aren’t exactly a new idea (see: any traditional Asian wedding) but in the international bridal market, it’s definitely a rising trend.

The credit for coloured dresses goes to none other than Vera Wang. Not only for sending pastel wedding gowns down the runway, but for introducing rose-tinted gowns in her diffusion line for David’s Bridal, cementing it forever as the mainstream’s alternative to white.

Fashion history aside, pink is a fresh take on virginal white without being so bold as to raise any parental eyebrows. But don’t just take my word for it: pink gowns have won over girl-next-door types like Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Biel and Kaley Cuoco on their big days, which says a lot for the wholesome appeal of this sweet shade.
