One of the most exciting parts of the wedding planning process is shopping for your wedding outfits. And for brides, it’s all about the wedding dress. You might instantly picture a big, flowing white gown, perhaps a dramatic veil to match.
But any modern brides are ditching the norms and opting for opting for a splash of colour as they take to the aisle. And what colour makes more of a statement than red? From bold, bright tones to deeper, oxblood shades, there are some absolutely beautiful red wedding dresses for you to try and buy for your special day!
What Does A Red Wedding Dress Mean?
The colour red symbolises many feelings and emotions. Love, passion, strength, power, and boldness, just to name a few. As such, red wedding dresses portray the same things. A bride in a red dress exudes confidence whilst embodying the colour of love. Sounds perfect for a wedding dress, right?
Is It OK To Wear A Red Wedding Dress?
It’s absolutely okay to wear a red dress on your wedding day. Whilst many brides choose to wear the classic white gown, we are seeing an increasing number of people choosing to add a dash of colour to their wedding outfit.
Back in the day, all brides would actually wear a colour dress. Wearing white only came in to fashion after Queen Victoria took to the aisle in an ivory gown, so as much as we call it traditional, it’s not been a tradition for that long!
So, if you fancy wearing red on your wedding day, we say go for it! And to help you find the perfect piece, here are a few of our favourite red wedding dresses!
