Modern and Non-Traditional Wedding Dresses

Most brides tend to opt for the traditional white wedding dress, however, there are some that opt for a more modern and contemporary style that  makes a statement! We have recently seen various pops of colour making their appearances in various bridal collections. So, today we pay homage to some of the real-brides who have hit the nail on the head and shown us exactly how its done…the stylish way!!

Oxblood Wedding Colour Inspiration + London Fashion Week 2013

My favourite season is unfortunately long gone and it’s probably safe to say that fall is now upon us. Now as much as I looooove summer I do look forward to revamping my wardrobe with all of the new trends. One thing that has got me slightly (just slightly) in the mood for the cold weather has been showcased all over the London Fashion Week 2013 runways, and that is the ‘oxblood red’. Not exactly the best name for a such a gorgeous shade, but it seems that last falls popular colour has made yet another appearance!

Models walking in the Burberry Prorsum Autumn/Winter ’13 show sported glossy oxblood nails, Christopher Kane showcased appliqué flower dresses, Victoria Beckham incorporated the rich shade into her accessories, and House of Holland rocked it in a number of ways, from pencil skirts to blouses, in his ‘Shaken Not Stirred’ collection.

Autumn Winter 2013 Oxblood Inspiration

You can take this trend through to your wedding in so many ways. Don’t be scared to experiment with this colour! However, for those of you who want to play it safe take note from the wedding bouquet below and opt for pairing the shade with creams, off-whites and dark greens.
