According to a survey conducted by post-it note company 3M, young brides of today are no longer opting for the traditional white dress, preferring instead to marry in colour.
Whether this is merely a sign of the times, or simply a new fashion trend set by a number of A-listers including Jessica Biel and Reese Witherspoon…who knows??
Either way, it seems that colour could soon be making a splash on the aisles…
It seems July is a popular time to get married, with a number of celebrities having recently maximised the good European weather to tie the knot.

Halle is said to have donned a simple white dress with embellished straps, arriving at the venue in a white vintage Citroen DS.

Yet another beautiful bride to make us green with envy…this week – Miss Universe Australia Erin McNaught and musician Example who tied the knot in beautiful New South Wales.
Erin wore a jaw dropping custom made Steven Khalil dress – classically elegant and simple, with a very unique, stylish peplum twist. She completed her look with a killer pair of Giuseppe Zanotti for Kanye West wedding shoes – far from simple but very much on trend!

Knightley married Klaxons keyboardist James Righton in France, this weekend. She celebrated with her nearest and dearest and stuck to her guns with a low key simple wedding. She wore a simple strapless Rodarte dress that is giving the press a field day as it looks to have been recycled from a 2008 bafta party. Who cares if she has worn the dress before, she wanted to be comfortable for her wedding and wore a dress she loved, good for her. We think Keira looked simply stunning.
For the low key wedding look, we also love the simply stunning Sophia headband.
Fashion and music royalty got together on Saturday to celebrate the wedding of Lady Mary Charteris and Big Pink musician, Robbie Furze. The model bride wore an odd gown of cut outs, frills and angles(made by Pam Hogg); whilst the groom wore pinstripes and a unruly mop of hair.
The wedding was attended by celebrities and nobles alike. Heavily pregnant Lily Allen attended with her daughter, as well as songstress, Florence Welch and Beer heiress, Auntie Daphne Guinness.
Perhaps for your wedding you’d like to emulate Lady Mary’s look, but tone it down a bit. Try it with NYK Wedding’s Sofiya Elbow length veil.
Cheers to the happy couple and you!
