We’ve come to see the white wedding dress as the conventional colour of choice for brides based on it’s bygone symbolism of purity and innocence but it’s actually a fairly recent tradition. 176 years ago Queen Victoria decided to buck the trend of red wedding gowns in favour of white. After news of her maverick choice spread, elites in western Europe followed suit and we’ve never looked back…until now.The dip dyed wedding dress is breathing new life into a constantly changing and evolving wedding culture, and why not? We’ve seen so many brilliant ideas on how to throw an original, memorable wedding but the costume for the starring role has largely remained the same. Whether it’s a rainbow of colours, a pop of one shade or a beautifully subtle ombre, we hope these dresses inspire you. If you’re feeling brave you can DIY dip dye or hire someone to do it for you.
