It is hard to believe that the fall 2013 season is right around the corner and many brides-to-be are planning their wedding in slightly cooler temperatures. Women who want to go non-traditional can select from either wedding white in a uniquely styled dress, or in a color usually associated with the fall season. Popular colors for non-traditional wedding gowns are: fuschia, green, white, silver, and blue. Not just any shade of green and blue but pine green and blue schist, as in the metamorphic rock. Here are the top five non-traditional wedding dresses for the upcoming fall season:
Versace has been creating iconic ready-to-wear garments for women since 1978. This simple yet stunning silk Cady dress in white is designed for the woman who wants to look great for her wedding without being too showy. The dress has delicate shoulder straps, a square neckline, and an above the knee skirt. The bride who wears this dress can wear practically any color gemstone for an accent, such as a sapphire or ruby necklace. Available from Versace for $987.00.
Dark red is the color used to describe this knockout floor-length Pucci jersey dress but it looks more like fuschia. Either way, this viscose dress drapes beautifully at the shoulder and waistline, with a gold-colored ring for decoration at the left right above the hipline. Go with diamond jewelry and silver shoes when you slip into this dress for your wedding day. Available from Neiman Marcus for $1257.75.
Metallics are always associated with fall colors. Silver is a favorite color when it comes to wedding dresses, and this Adrianna Papell strapless faux-wrap foil gown has Grecian folds that will make you feel like a goddess on your wedding day. Wear sapphire jewelry and royal blue shoes with this dress. Available from Lord and Taylor for $229.00.
Green is a fall color, even though most people think of trees changing color. That is, with the exception of evergreen trees. Designed by Dolce and Gabbana, this pretty green cap-sleeve lace dress has a floral and leaf design throughout the fabric, with an underlay in the same color. This dress is so well designed it doesn’t need any built-in accents. For shoes, bronze or copper will be a perfect complement, and a string of pearls with matching earrings will be the perfect addition to your bridal look. Available from Saks Fifth Avenue for $2125.00.
Think of late season flowers when you consider getting this Tadashi Shoji gown in blue stone. Blue stone is the perfect color to describe the dress, though blue schist might be more accurate. There is a lot of detail in this elegant dress: a bateau neckline, lace inset bodice, draping at the front waistline, and sequinned edges at neckline and shoulders. For jewelry, wear diamonds, especially diamond bracelets. Available from Bloomingdale’s for $548.00.
