Believe it or not, but white isn’t the only colour that you can get your wedding dress in. If you’re someone who’s interested in other wedding dress colours, you’ve come to the right place! At Bay Bridal, we stock bridal dresses in Auckland in white and other colours, too!

In this blog, we’ll explore white vs other wedding dress colours to help you decide which one to wear for your big day. 

So, without further ado, let’s dive right into it.


White wedding dresses are the traditional and conventional colour for wedding dresses. While there are certainly different tints and shades to white, the colour as a whole is a popular choice for many brides. You can opt for stark white - a blinding, brilliant white that’s bleached to achieve its crisp tint. Or, some prefer natural white - not as bright as the previous, but still crisp and neat. 

Nowadays, modern wedding dresses are being made in ivory, a shade of white with a yellow or nude undertone. This shade is often referred to as ‘eggshell’ and is becoming an increasingly popular option for brides who want something a little bit different.

Non-traditional colours

While white is certainly a go-to for many, if you’re thinking about a non-conventional route, then rest assured that there are wedding dresses available in other colours as well. In particular, blush is an alluring tone to consider, especially if you’re looking to emulate soft and dreamy vibes for your wedding. 

In the meantime, bolder colours like black are great at emulating passion and power, perfect for those who want to create a bold statement on their wedding day. Black wedding dresses are also ideal for gothic themes, adding a touch of luxury and mystery. 

Of course, let’s not forget that it’s your wedding day after all, meaning that if you see, for instance, a red gown that looks gorgeous on you, what’s stopping you from wearing it down the aisle? No matter if you want white, black, or blue, your wedding dress is ultimately up to you.
