How did ballet pink and baby blue become go-to alternatives to bridal white ? It’s been trending for a few years and is now surfacing as a strong color option for brides looking for something unique. Perhaps the source of this trend comes from the ubiquitous newborn gender reveals—which could be the next step in a couple’s life journey. Babies are always in style, with pink and blue marking the baby’s gender. No matter the reasoning, designers are accenting their bridal looks with blue and pink bows, sashes, belts, and all-over patterns. Designers like Kelly Faetanini and Ines Di Santo use the palest shades to wash over entire gowns, giving brides the option to stand out from the crowd. Wedgwood floral prints were instilled into Sareh Nouri’s Something Blue collection, to dramatic effect, during her April presentation.
Some color outliers, like Badgley Mischka’s finale dress, surprised viewers with an electric turquoise spray of 3D flowers. Honor, who always forges their own path, showed several red looks.
