Would You Wear a Pink Wedding Dress?

By October 29, 2012

Follow me on:

When People Magazine published pictures of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel's wedding, I was surprised to see that the bride wore pink! In fact it was a sort of tie-dyed pink romantic dress with a flouncy peplum made by Giambattista Valli Haute Couture. Of course, she's not the first bride to wear pink - Gwen Stefani and Anne Hathaway were also tickled pink.

But I wonder: Is wearing a pink wedding dress something that only celebrities do, much like naming your child Apple, or bathing in Evian water? Would you wear a pink wedding dress?

Non-traditional colors were available when I shopped for my gown 30+ years ago. I chose a “candlelight ivory” because white didn’t work with my coloring, but there were also choices in pastels or accessorized with pastels.

Remember, the white formal gown was not universal across economic classes until relatively recently. My mother, mother-in-law, and many other 20th-century brides wore street-length dresses or suits due to wartime rationing, economic concerns, time constraints, or venue (homes, wedding chapels, judges’ offices, etc.).

No, I like many more traditional colors, black or white. It may be very traditional
