Gone are the days of white only wedding gowns. With her recent collections the doyenne of wedding dresses, Vera Wang, has gone all out to add colour to her confections of chiffon and lace.

For Autumn Winter 2011 there were touches of black and grey, but for the Spring Summer 2012 collection, Vera Wang Bridal has grabbed hold of the fresh shades of spring green, pale gold and peach, as well as more “tonal” shades of taupe, beige and even greige and a dark grey.

These glorious dresses are not only perfect for a spring bride or a bride who wants to stand out, the various shades also offer more flattering matches to diverse skin tones.

For the darker skinned bride, the peach-flushed corset dress with a fishtail skirt is a wonderful foil making your skin glow. Likewise, those who are very pale will find their skin looks even more porcelain in the spring green gown.

And of course, these Vera Wang Bridal dresses don’t have to be restricted to the bride; they make glorious bridesmaids dresses or even ballgowns.

After all, you might as well get as much wear from your gown as you can, and having a wedding dress in a colour other than white just makes it so much easier.
