Pristine white wedding dresses are going to be sharing the stage this season with deep colours, which are making a bold appearance on the year’s trendiest gowns.
David Chaung, manager of Tiffany New York Bridal in Vancouver, was at the Vancouver Wedding Fair yesterday.
“Colour’s in — burgundy, brown, navy, red, green (on) sashes or bands,” he said, adding they are used to match bridesmaids dresses and tuxedo vests.
Chaung also said bubble skirts or skirts with pick-up — heavy ruching and gathering, are back in fashion after 15 years.
Marnie Khayat, 30, from Vancouver, was at the fair in search of a gown for her fall 2008 wedding.
She said she’s always wanted something traditional — a white, strapless A-line dress, but was surprised how much she liked ones with colour.
“I tried a chocolate brown and cream dress on, and it looked fabulous.”
Bridal running shoes are also in demand, said Louise Gharakhanian, owner of Devon Shoes in Burnaby, who was also at the Vancouver Convention Centre. “(Brides) are going to be on their feet for 10 hours plus,” she said. “A wedding type of runner with fancy lace … it’s fun.”
