This season, warm your Las Vegas weddings with a hint of color. While white has always been a winter wedding classic, this season’s brides are choosing to embrace a new hue. It’s called blush, and it’s a shade of barely-there pink.
For non-conforming brides, the blush bridal gown shares an elegant aura, especially when featured with light fabrics, like organza, tulle or chiffon. But blush isn’t the only color this season that’s making its way into the minds and hearts of brides-to-be.
Bold brides have also been seen in shades of champagne, gold, pearl, and peach. As a simple, subtle shift from the classic white or soft ivory tones, these bridal gowns breathe life into any bride’s natural appearance.
Brides, be completely certain of your decisions before you choose to wear blush dresses for your wedding days. Ask close friends, family, and (if you don’t mind him learning a little sneak peek) your groom. If a blush dress won’t upset for the wedding day, then consider a wedding gown of a less traditional hue for when you’ll say, “I do.”
As you gather inspiration, view these bridal gown designs available through local Las Vegas weddings dress stores and bridal boutiques.

The Finishing Touch: Bridal Accessories
For brides that select a blush bridal gown, wedding professionals recommend a non-matching shoe hue. Instead of a pink shoe, try bridal shoes in old gold, antique cream, or burnished copper. To further create a warm color palette amidst winter, try soft gold jewelry rather than traditional silver (which looks best with a pure white dress). Lastly, to complement a bride’s blush dress, encourage bridesmaids to don colors of a similar palette, including lilac, charcoal, plum, champagne, or slate.
