The wedding ensembles from Herrera are of traditional white color, though they are decorated with contrasting embroidery and flowery patterns to highlight the contrast of colors. On the top of it, as the auxiliary accessory for the bride, the American designer offers tiny boleros made from the half-sheer black lace or tulle.

When the bright red wedding dress is thought to be very loud and provocative for the wedding party, the wedding gowns that match these two colors are good to consider. Yet, the dresses of white and red colors are suitable for wedding in spring and summer periods, still making the bride romantic and tender. The dresses like this are offered by the wedding brand Alfred Angelo with models when the classic white upper skirt goes perfectly with the dark-red lower skirts and red inclusions.

For the summer wedding ensemble and for less official functions such shades may appear fairly suitable, when the warm colors go practically with every complexion and the more vivid is the color, the more unique is the style and taste and challenges to go beyond any traditions. However, the unnecessary brightness of the color for wedding dresses is effectively smoothed over with the moderate tailoring.

As a rule, the flamboyant color is the key decoration of the wedding ensemble and there is no need in additional accessories like puffy skirts, decorative ribbons and bands and various embroidery. However, Vera Wong in her Spring-Summer collection of wedding gowns managed to compliment the brightness of the color and splendor of the ensemble. The wedding gowns of intensive green and lemon-yellow shades were expressive with the classic match of the plain top and puffy skirt made from plenty of half-sheer tulle.
