Many famous fashion houses are now including these colours into their wedding lines, to suit everyone’s whims and fancies!

Now, lilac is a bridesmaid-y colour, but with the right dress, you can definitely steal the show. In the language of flowers, purple lilac represents the first emotions of love; and so, wearing this colour on your wedding day will fill the air with love and a youthful freshness. Lilac dress can be paired with sparkly diamond accessories and a studded long veil.

In India, gold is always seen as a colour of stature and prosperity and all things sacred. A gold wedding dress will not only make you shine on your D-Day but will also give you a dramatic flair. Any of the Tahitian pearls can be used to accessorize this dress, but so can other dark coloured stones or yellow topaz shade jewellery.

Baby blue:

Seeing a baby blue wedding dress often makes one think of Cinderella. Adorning this shade on your wedding day will make you look like a princess who is ready to be whisked away by her prince. To give the wedding a more fairy tale like feeling, you can probably custom order transparent shoes, which will make the Cinderella look complete.

Mint green:

Mint green is a totally under rated colour in my opinion. This colour is associated with harmony, prosperity, youth and good luck. Wearing a mint coloured gown will make the air bouncy and will be filled with a jaunty rhythm. Mint green can be worn with simple silver jewellery which will accentuate the colour and will also give an elegant look.

Peacock blue:

This dress can be the perfect balance between a blushing bride and a confident modern woman. Clear cut stones will be a great match with this colour and will enhance your complete look.
