Dress Colour Codes
You might have heard that the beautiful Reese Witherspoon married her fiancé Jim Toth on March 26 at her ranch in Ojai, California.
When famous folk tie the knot, you expect there to be a buzz about their big day. But what made headlines was Reese’s choice of gown.
Reese strolled down the aisle in a pale pink, custom made Monique Lhuillier gown looking simply stunning, but breaking the white wedding dress rule.
Perhaps by choosing to shun a traditional white gown, Reese was making a style statement, or because this was her second wedding Reese thought a coloured dress was a good option.
Reese did switch into a white, silk minidress also by Monique Lhuillier at the reception, so there was white in sight, just not during the ceremony.
Who knows, perhaps coloured wedding gowns are set to become the next big trend. Just last week designers at New York Bridal Fashion Week like Vera Wang mixed muted, neutral shades of tan, while Monique Lhuillier worked her magic with a beautiful, blush pink wedding dress. I found these softly coloured gowns to be some of the standouts of the shows.
What do you think of Reese’s gown? Do you think she should have stuck with tradition and chosen a white wedding dress?
