Who says the bride has to wear white? If you’re looking for something more unusual to wear on your wedding day then why not choose a red wedding dress.

The colour of passion and romance red wedding dresses are a symbol of good fortune and auspiciousness in many cultures.

But, if you aren’t quite able to tear yourself away from the tradition of a white wedding dress, then you can always add some clever accessories for a striking colour pop.
