Colorful hand-dyed wedding dresses

August 10, 2018

Happy Friday, friends! Has anyone else noticed the resurgence of hand-dyed wedding dresses as of late (such as the swoonworthy Leanne Marshall number above)? We’ve always been a fan of this trend—a bride who is willing to add a big splash o’ color to her white wedding gown is bound to have a few other tricks up her sleeve!—but this revival comes with more fun hues than ever. Think cool blues, pops of coral peach, and maybe even a rainbow or two…

How gorgeous is this indigo-dyed wedding skirt? You can scoop up this piece from Sweet Caroline Styles right here.


Another take on blue comes from this Chantel Lauren gown as captured by Mattie Bell Photography in the romantic southern wedding inspiration we shared.


The dress designed by Patricio Banados Valenzuela featured a hand-painted rainbow of color by Tiff Manuell (have you seen their insta? It’s insaaane!) who the bride works for. Photo by Alex Kwong Photography.


Leanne Marshall has long led the hand-dyed wedding dress trend, like the Soleil Skirt with a dreamy ivory, blush, and mauve printed silk organza. This one’s a full A-line skirt, so imagine the movement!


For a brighter look, we love the dip-dyed ombre peach in this House of Moirai gown documented by Lizelle Goussard Photography.


This coral dyed weddng gown Nicole Berrett Photography captured goes perfectly with a paper flower bouquet by Jessie Chui of Crafted to Bloom. See how to DIY your own paper wedding flowers here!


Another Leanne Marshall gown, the Aurora Dress was a fave in her modern bohemian bridal collection.


This embellished pastel aqua + pink gown is part of colorful, dramatic wedding collection by Chotronette. Now, imagine the *entire* wedding inspired by this design… Photography by Devlin Photos for Rock n Roll Bride.


Samuelle Couture’s Camille gown mixes a hand-dyed skirt underlay with hand pleated draping in silk organza + tulle. Dreamy, much? Find more unique wedding gowns on our Pinterest!
