Giving a Whole New Meaning to a "White Wedding"

We’re wrapping up our posts at Principles in Action a San Antonio Wedding Planner, this week by focusing on a topic that might be a bit controversial to some. A new and unexpected trend for bridesmaids is that they are wearing white, or very pale, neutral shades. Yes, you heard us right…white! Traditionally here in the states, it was bad luck for any of the guests to show up to a wedding wearing white, especially the bridesmaids! These days, however, having your girls wearing a shade of white slightly different from yours is becoming more commonplace.

Let’s face it, no matter what the bridesmaids wear, no one outshines the bride. The fun thing about dressing the ‘maids in white is that it allows you to really go all out with accessories, hair and bouquets. Don’t believe us? Take a look at the images below, which show how elegant and romantic the bridesmaids look without stealing anyone’s thunder.

Since weddings are becoming more and more unconventional and personalized, we think it’s a wonderful, modern idea. From cream and off-white to soft, romantic colors, there are endless options for subtle silhouettes. The pale dresses bring a light and airy feel to your favorite girls, while giving the pictures a pure, untouched aesthetic.

Here at Principles in Action, we encourage our San Antonio-based brides to march to the beat of their own drums, so we look forward to seeing some all-white, bridal affairs in our future!

So, what do you think? Would you let your wedding party wear white? If Kate Middleton and Kim Kardashian can allow it, we have faith that you can pull it off too!
