For active, sporty brides who are tan, go for evening gown collections in warmer tones such as red, peach, coral, amber, champagne and gold. For fair-skinned brides, they can opt for evening gown collections in cool tones such as blue, purple, green, magenta or soft shades such as dove grey, blush and dusty blues.
- Know your desired activity: Evening gowns are usually worn for brides to walk around with ease so they can take photographs with their guests during their wedding reception. Some fun-loving brides even planned for surprise dance performances. So the nature of the bride’s activity also affects the choice of the evening gown. Generally, gowns with detachable train, or with front-short to long-back trains are popular for brides who desire maximum mobility and comfort.
