Bridal Gown Trend: Blush Wedding Dresses

28 Feb

Wearing a dress that was not white or ivory was, until recent years, considered a strange move.  Over the past couple of years we began to see bits of colors popping up, but a whole dress in a color other than white or ivory was still very unconventional. This all changed this year, dresses in blush and pink began to appear in quite a few bridal fashion shows. You might say that this change might have something to do with the blush Monique Lhuillier dress Reese Witherspoon wore at her March 2011 wedding. Whatever brought about this change in bridal fashion we hope its here to stay!
