Everything Old is New Again

 While it’s been big with celebrity brides for quite some time, it seems more and more everyday brides are looking for a little more pop from THE dress nowadays. Over at Sublime Bridal, we’ve seen more nude and pink hues (remember last month when the new Mrs. Timberlake sported a rose colored gown?!), but some brides are even taking it a step further. Even here in Omaha, we’ve had an increasing number of women making their way to Sublime Couture for an even more dramatic color or look—and did you know, this trend is one we’ve seen repeatedly throughout history? In fact, when women FIRST began wearing wedding gowns, bright colored dresses were really the only option, and anyone with money would adorn the gown with fur, stones or anything else opulent they could think of!

White first became the “it” color in 1840 when Queen Victoria wore it. The trend lasted quite a while in the western world, until the depression in the 1930’s when women were forced to wear the best dress they could find. Since the recovering economy, most women have gone back to channeling their inner princess.

So, are you SO traditional you’re actually fashion forward? Or are you wanting to wear the color our moms wore? Better yet, are you none of the above? Lucky you, between Sublime Bridal and Sublime Couture, we carry it all—white, colored, long, short—all waiting to be worn on the best day of your life!
