REAL TALK: You Don’t Need to Wear White on Your Wedding Day.

8 Colourful Wedding Gowns That Still Look Bridal AF.

Wearing white on your wedding day wasn’t really a thing until 1840, when Queen Victoria wore a white gown to marry Prince Albert and caused quite the fashion stir. Believe it or not, up until then many brides in that era wore red. (Side note: Can we bring back red wedding dresses? Spread the word.)

The white dress might still hold tradition, but we’re here for the bold wave of colour coming down the runway & the bolder brides wearing them down the aisle.

Now I know what you’re thinking. “How will everyone know I’m the bride?” Well my friend, I promise these looks are still super bridal. (Still worried about pleasing your mum? Here’s a tip: Wear a veil. Everything looks bridal with a veil.)

So why not show up to your day in this stunner? The Dreamtime by & For Love is just SO special. The silver sequins have a subtle hint of colour and the long sleeves give balance and drama to this deep-V, backless wedding gown. Statement brides, this one is for you.

If Springtime gives you all the feels, this is the dress you need in your life. The Romy by Alca Line shakes up a traditional floral embroidery in a contemporary lavender hue.

OK so this is technically Ivory BUT… look at this detail. I mean, Bo & Luca’s Amelie surely doesn’t count as a your typical white dress. A semi-cropped top & a fit and flare skirt that’s entirely beaded by hand in antique gold. Have you ever seen anything more gorg? Cool, me neither. Speaking of cool, this dress gets its gorgeous ivory colour by being hand-dyed in loose-leaf tea. Pretty & chemical-free. Win/Win.

Want to feel pretty in pink? Of course you do. This A- Line blush dress with red sequins from Alca Line Bridal still gives off lots of bridal vibes with a fun pop of colour.

Not ready to take that big of a plunge? Here’s 2 Blush Gowns to ease you in.

The Melody/Snow combo from Bowie Rae is as femme as it is cool. A Nude skirt with 7 (yep, 7) layers of blush and ivory tulle, with a delicate flocked polka dot on the top layer.

Don’t forget about the Savannah gown from Temple by Bo and Luca. The corset bodice is oh-so-flattering & there’s a bridal AF A-Line skirt. And our favoruite part? The oversized lace. It’s a bolder look compared to the other more traditional laces out there.

Whimsical & bold, the Delilah from Alca Line bride isn’t one for the shy. It’s a beautiful light blue and better yet, you can order it with a removable bottom skirt. Hello mini dress you can wear again!

If you didn’t think we were going to go there, you were wrong. Bring on the black bridal vibes. Last, but certainly not least- the infamous Brooklyn Dress from & For Love comes in black too. This might be the best news we’ve heard all day.

Book in here to make an appointment to live out all of your colourful bridal dreams, but don't wait! The Alca Line Bridal Trunk Show is in town for a limited time, September 23-October 4th, 2020.
