Stylish Pink Wedding Gowns

The 2011 Top Bridal Trend

Strapless pink wedding gowns are the top trend for the fashion conscious bride-to-be in 2011. Styled with fabulous fifties inspired bows, and glamorous ruching and beading that accentuates the figure, pink wedding gowns are making a big impact on the catwalk. From beautiful delicate baby pinks through to sexy shocking hot pinks, a pink bridal dress will certainly make your wedding photos stand out from the crowd.

It seems that this year, every wedding dress designer has a great collection of pink wedding gowns to choose from; which means finding one to suit your individual style isn't as difficult as you might think. Whether you want a fantasy Cinderella-style design, or a more traditional custom made gown, there are styles and fabrics to suit every bride's shape, and budget!

Wearing something other than white or ivory on your wedding day is no longer considered strange or taboo. Trends and styles change over time, white only became popular in the late 19th century, before which, blue was the most common color for a bridal gown. Blue or white dresses originally symbolized the bride's purity. Pink symbolizes something else entirely... love and romance! So what could be a more appropriate color for your wedding gown, on the most romantic day of your life?

Taffeta or silk, satin or chiffon, pick a fabric that suits your personality. Feel ultra sexy in a figure hugging satin, or, if you want to be really different then forget plain fabrics and go for pink floral patterns; choose from delicate rosebud designs or bold printed gerberas. Wear busy patterns with plain bows and sashes for contrast, and accessorize plain fabrics with beaded details and intricate tiaras and jewelry.

Pink not really your color?

Unfortunately, we are all too aware that not all skin tones suit wearing pink; redheads beware! But you don't have to miss out on the latest trend, instead why not choose pink flower girl dresses? With you flower girls dressed in pink, you can then wear a more traditional ivory or cream gown, and use pink flowers as an accent color in your bouquet. Hints of pink in your accessories and your bridal bouquet will compliment your pink flower girl dresses, while pink decorations and wedding table centerpieces of beautifully arranged pink flowers will all help to bring your color scheme together.

Can you ever have too much pink?

We like to think not. But, perhaps a Barbie pink dress, tiara, shoes, make-up and veil might be a little over the top. The secret to wearing a bright color - and making it look good - is to cleverly combine it with complimentary shades and tones. Mix pink wedding gowns with white or cream flowers and pearl jewelry for a cool sophisticated look; contrast your pink gown with black or dove gray lace detailing for a more alternative look.

Celebrities in pink

By wearing a pink wedding dress you will find yourself in good company. In March 2011, Reese Witherspoon wore a blush pink strapless dress designed by Monique Lhuillier. Gwen Stefani wore a John Galliano design in pink and white silk faille when she married Gavin Rossdale, and Sharon Stone chose Vera Wang to design her pink chiffon dress for her big day. Pink wedding gowns are certainly the must have design this year, and with your pink bridal dress, you'll be leading from the front of this new trend.
