White wedding gowns are timeless and classic. But at the same time, they’re safe, traditional, conventional, boring… and the list goes on. For brides who are looking for colour options that are less sedentary, but not over the top, we recommend nude as your new best friend. While not quite as predictable as white, nude is a shade that nonetheless evokes romance and femininity — just the way you would like it for your wedding day. Today, Wedding & Travel rounds up some of our favourite collections featuring this favoured shade!
Armani Prive Fall/Winter 2013-14
Giorgio Armani’s haute couture label, Armani Prive, rolled out a divine series of nude dresses for its Fall/Winter 2013-14 collection. We were absolutely blown away by the generous amount of exquisite details that went into the dresses, such as intricate lacework, hand-beading, and hand-pleated tulle that was meticulously put together. With styling that recalled the glamour and romance of the 1920s with volume on the hair, and sparkle in the accessories, this is definitely a look that you can easily adapt for your own wedding.
Reem Acra Resort Collection 2013
Reem Acra’s Resort Collection 2013 showcased its versatility with a series of nude gowns that would please brides of any style. The romantic bride would appreciate the gown with a timeless fluid silhouette and ruffled details around the hem; the glamorous bride would love the form-fitting full-body sequinned gown; adventurous brides would be intrigued by fashion-forward details such as structured ruffles and sunburst pleating in the dresses.
And who best to look to for the most classic nude gowns than the eponymous Vera Wang? Nude has featured regularly on the acclaimed designer’s palette, as you can see from these gorgeous creations we pulled from Vera Wang’s Spring 2011 and Fall 2012 collections. However, we would have to give it to the designer for being able to put a new spin on the tried-and-tested colour with every new collection. While the dresses in the Spring 2011 collection were light and whimsical, the dresses from the Fall 2012 evoked a darker and more mysterious charm.
