Life, itself, is very colorful and color possibilities are innumerable. Wedding dress designers are embracing a new era in bridal wear, creating dresses in a slew of hues. From pretty pastels to triumphant tones, a bride can dip her toes in the colorful pool of wedding gowns.

Light blue is idyllic for any season of the year because it’s such a natural and organic hue. The soft color can be paired with any number of accessories. This blonde-haired bride wears statement earrings and lets her unfettered white bouquet accent the carefree design of the dress.

The infamous blush color is still as in-demand as ever. It echoes sentiments of romance, sweetness, and passion. This free-flowing design is perfect for a beachside wedding, as it mirrors the colors in the sunset. Pair it with a bouquet tied with navy and white-striped ribbon and you’re the perfect centerpiece at a seaside ceremony.

This mustard yellow gown is flawless for the fall bride. The color is rich and deep but still looks hopeful and vivid. A strapless A-line gown looks great with floral hair accessories and a bouquet brimming with berry-colored flowers. Not to mention, it’s great for the day or night.

Metallics are an unconventional color for a wedding dress but they absolutely make a sparkling statement. Gold exemplifies an air of regality and majestic beauty and any bride who chooses it will certainly feel priceless. This bride has the right idea with a strapless sweetheart dress. She lets her gown shine and limits the use of excessive accessories for an exquisite appearance.

Sea green dresses are seamless for those unconventional princess brides. The color is whimsical, charming and refreshing. It’s a delicate way of using a unique color not typically found in a wedding dress. For a lady who’s marrying in a coastal town or in a storybook elopement, this color is notable.

For a spring and summery appearance, a peach-colored dress is warm, inviting and lively. It’s a color that is undemanding and reaffirms a sense of femininity. For a bride who likes the idea of color but is anxious about intensity, a peach-colored creation is a great selection. Wearing this color at sunset or even in an unconventional early-morning ceremony would be faultless.

Black is a color most would not associate with wedding dresses but the right creation can make it work. A black gown signifies formality, class and timeless elegance – after all, black goes with everything! Incorporating a black dress with moderation in other areas can truly be stunning. This couture black gown is softened by layers of ruffled gray and blush tulle, while all the other elements of the wedding are in stunning white.

If you’re a fan of bright, there’s a color out there for you, too. Some brides have loud personalities that need loud dresses, just like this lovely patterned orange gown. The silhouette is simple with long sleeves and a long straight skirt and the bride accessorizes with just a modest flower hair detail and long chain necklace. The dress dazzles on its own.

Like pink, a lot of ladies love purple, too. The ladylike color is sweet, pretty and sprightly. Choose a soft lavender for your bridal gown and incorporate dark purple flowers in other areas of the wedding. This bride wears a light purple ball gown with a tulle skirt and beaded bodice and carries a pomander with white and purple flowers to match.

For a bride pining for extra pizzazz, a silver dress is fitting. Bridal wear these days incorporates lots of silver beading in many of its designs so by default, this dress still looks like a gorgeous present-day wedding dress with a slight twist. The silver is stately and stunning and would look great on any bride. An intricate neckline, like on this gown, needs very little accessory; just grab a pair of earrings and you can stroll down the aisle in silver style.

Jenny Packham is a world-renowned fashion brand and brides everywhere choose this design house for its revolutionary approach to bridal wear. The fall 2014 collection from Jenny Packham brings to life striking romanticism and enduring elegance in a season best known for its transformation.

Like blush, champagne-colored dresses are gaining favor in bridal wear. This ankle-length creation is a fabulous example. It features an interesting V-neck and has elbow-length sleeves. The bodice is cinched tight with ruched fabric while the skirt has lots of movement. The look is complete with a silver-beaded highlight at the waist.

This is an interesting twist on the classic empire-waist gown. A sheer panel and embellished lace cap sleeves make the neckline of this dress soft and subtle. The classic white skirt is long and flowing, creating a tall silhouette, while the modest addition of textured fabric creates subtle contrast.

Any design that is tight with a bit of a flare will create a flattering shape for any bride. This strapless design has a tight-fitted bodice with a small keyhole detail. The long and luxurious skirt begins at the natural waist and flows to a rippled hem at the floor. It is accentuated with a sweet flower detail.

A dreamy number reminiscent of the 1920s, this incredible vision is realized with sheer fabric and sheen. A deep V-neck is created with both a base layer and a top layer of fabric, which adds shimmer to the shoulders. The dazzling quality of the top of the design adds an extra dynamic, turning what would be a simple concept into an adoring first-rate gown.

The right fabric can really help a girl shine. This long-sleeved silk gown features a wrap style that brings the eyes to the center of the shape. A beaded accessory sits at the hip for an added touch of glimmer.

This sultry but sophisticated V-neck is a fashion-forward choice. The straps are gathered and held together with silver-beaded embellishments which plummet down to a dramatic V.  The waist is accented with an ornate belt as the fabric gathers at the waist. The skirt flows out and carefully graces the floor.

One dress can be interpreted in so many ways. The sheer top of this gown has sleeves to the elbows and silver beading everywhere you look. A peek of the dress underneath reveals a youthful white V-neck and thin straps. A high neckline and a keyhole accent make for inimitable elements as the top seamlessly assimilates into the rest of the design. The beaded waist and vertical beading and embellishments on the skirt mirror the sparkle of the top of the dress.
