Vera Wang completely shocked bridal market buyers this season when she sent a collection of all pink dresses down the runway. The famed bridal designer used silk and tulle in shades of coral and rose to successfully align bridal beauty with modern glamour in a way the industry had never seen in this powerful presentation. Bold brides immediately took to the blogs clamoring over the confection colored dresses while their reserved counterparts shied away from the brave break with tradition. While the idea of a pink wedding dress might sound jarring to some Wang illustrated that pink can bring the pretty. A viable option for brides who are courageous enough to eschew pure white, pink has always contained an ethereal and princess like quality. That quality is only amplified by being paired with quality materials. Sticking to classic fabrics and traditional silhouettes keeps the color from outshining the garment. If frothy frocks get your heart aflutter consider a pink gown as a way to incorporate your personal style into your big day.
