I love the simple modern setting of this Barrio Neal Ring.

The pop of bright pink lipstick looks perfect with this bride’s coloring and blonde hair. It’s softer and more fun that red, but is still very dramatic.

Sometimes just white won’t do. A wedding dress with a little color is fun, unexpected and can help your personal style come through on wedding day. Here are a few ways you can incorporate color to your wedding dress.

This dress would be lovely for a wedding on a bright sunny day.

This dress has just a bit of pink showing through the while tulle skirt.

Ombre is super popular right now with wedding decor. I love the idea of a subtle ombre on a wedding dress. Of course if you can always go bolder and go for a dress that’s closer to Gwen Stefani’s pink Galliano for Dior dress.

Junko Yoshioka Valentina Dress

You can add a multi-colored petticoat to your dress.

If you’ve already bought your white dress you can always add colorful accessories like a colored sash, belt, head piece, shoes, or handbag.

I love this whimsical floral belt from Twigs and Honey.

Instead of white, opt for a soft pink tulle veil.
