It would appear the traditional white wedding dress is no longer the automatic choice for brides-to-be. Alternative colors, such as blue, pink, and especially red, are becoming the norm as women branch out in search of the ultimate look in stylish gowns. Naturally, many of the world’s finest fashion designers are leaping on this modern trend and producing sensational dresses. Below, we look at five of the leading red wedding dress designers.
This design company is benefiting from the magical, romantic designs of Callie Tein, the Australian-born designer who is creating a range of wonderful red wedding dresses to suit each bride’s individual style. Modern Trousseau also offers a wide range of custom selections, including strap selections, skirt shapes, and color accents. All of its gowns are designed and made in the United States of America.
This fashion designer is becoming a force to be reckoned with after shooting to stardom a few years ago when her bridal gowns were worn at a number of highly anticipated celebrity weddings, including that of Crystal Harris and Hugh “Playboy” Hefner. Her stylish red dresses have been worn by Christina Hendricks of “Mad Men” fame, and Keveza has taken her penchant for red right into the bridal gown industry.
She may well be the world’s most sought-after fashion designer, and Vera Wang continues to produce the goods. Since red wedding dresses are far from being traditional, it is hardly a surprise to discover this fashion designer working hard to create what is arguably the world’s best collection of red bridal gowns. Her finest work in this niche includes the “Kirsten” wedding gown and the “Katrina” strapless gown. Obviously, you better be prepared to pay a pretty penny to get your hands on a Wang masterpiece!
If you know fashion, then you know Oscar de la Renta, as this designer is always at the cutting edge. One of his most daring creations of late is his scarlet red ball gown with a darling Chantilly lace skirt and sweetheart neckline. If you have the body for it, this particular dress will turn every single head in any room!
Although there have been red wedding dresses designed in the past, it seems as if the spring collections of many famous designers in 2013 were the first instances of this color dress becoming popularized. Red, of course, is a color with many different meanings around the world: In Japan, it is symbolic of happiness while in China it means luck or joy; in the United States, it is a symbol of love, and there is no greater expression of love than your wedding day!
