Solange Knowles made headlines last fall when she cruised through New Orleans shortly after saying “I Do”, to director-fiancé, Alan Ferguson in a stunning ivory Pamela Roland jumpsuit that looked like it was sculpted distinctly for her body.solange-wedding4


Not sold on the idea of a bridal jumpsuit? That’s OK, but if you love making a statement, they are guaranteed to have your guests taking about it for all the right reasons.There are many style options for jumpsuits and all will make you feel like a bride.

With so many colors, silhouettes and style options to choose from; actually making a decision could be a bit challenging. Do you want strapless or long sleeves? V-neck or bateau? Lace or satin? Sheer or tulle? Ivory or white? All the options can send any bride running away if you don’t have clear vision of how you want to look. We want to help narrow down what to expect so you have time to prepare BEFORE you go dress shopping and knowing the latest color trends is a great way to start!Screen-Shot-2015-01-13-at-5.33.24-PM


You may be quite familiar with the white, ivory and cream dresses but this spring, colorful palette are the new “What’s Hot” option. With the spring color palette, brides have more options to consider. Gowns come in nature inspired colors like aquamarine, lavender herb, sandstone, glacier grey and pistachio. While a colorful gown isn’t for the faint of heart, it is a fun and creative way to incorporate a little freshness to your wedding day.Collage1


For the traditional bride that wants to infuse a little color into her dress, she may consider color-blocking with a sandstone corset like this one from Watters. Or if she wants wow-worthy stares, walking down the aisle in a pistachio-tinted gown like this stunner by Monique L’huillier is THE daring way to go.Collage2


Going for glamour they’ll gush over? This gorgeous metallic honeycomb-beaded sheath and cape combo are the epitome of a glam goddess.lazaro-fall-2014-wedding-dresses-collection-trendy-bride

Whether you’re an eccentric bride or opt for more traditional colors and silhouettes, incorporating color into your wedding day look this spring is a concept you will neither regret nor forget.
