The Couture industry has been hit by a fresh wave recently of innovation and creativity amalgamated to result in the New Red.... and the New Red is all those so many colors often thought to be not the typical status quo bridal colors. This beauty cum style statement has emerged in recent years and now has finally outgrown from being just the choice of a fashion-aware niche of public, to every one individual out there who likes being Creative and Unique.

1. Pale and Coral Pink- Younger, Natural and Simple.

#1 Simplicity and Beauty blend together
Avoid the dresses that suppress your beauty under its too much bold over laden grandeur.

#2 Even If you are going for dark colors, choose to avoid being too extrovert, bright, dazzling and bold in the tone. If it weren't for the shades of Teal, English, Steel and Elephant Blue; then the commonly used shades here of baby blue, sea blue and ferozy alone make brides look like a piece cut out from Desi Ralli (patchwork comforters).

#3 Even with full heavy work and the signature-too-much a.k.a. Gold, the WHITE still looks elegant, that is the beauty of it. A perfect canvas that brings out the beauty of everything it is carrying or carried by.

Balancing Dark Purple and Dark Magenta colors with light ones like Off-white and Grey... Even a whole purple dress will look gorgeous if you do it beautifully.

5. Grey: Be Subtle but Beautiful

Grey and White with a touch of elegance ... Yet again we see the Fade effect and Two shades!

#4 Remember Not everything that looks beautiful, necessarily will look beautiful on you! Discover Yourself. Know Yourself. Express YOURSELF... Not just the trends and fashion.

What could be more lady like, Stunning, and Beautiful than a Maxi and that with such a flow and flare! Topped up with a light color like this it completely gives you the freedom and space to let your own natural beauty unleashed! :)

#5 Remember : It's the Quality, the Purity, the Honesty- in each and every fragment of your dress- if these were intended , then It'll surefire be the thing that Shows You Beautiful, not just showcase its own beauty over you.

6. Gorgeous Green: Be Stylish but Color Sensible

#6 Go for shades like bottle green, sage, teal green and similar shades! Although i am not a big fan of green bridal dress myself but it does look nice- the key is to have a design made for elegance...these color coupled with a perfectly complimenting color. It's high time we forget about the most common (within masses in Pakistan) vast spread of sea greens and similar typical shades ...until they are combined with the touch of trendy innovation.

7. Mysterious Black: Break the Rules

#7 Break the pre-stated default wedge of "bridal color rules" in which we feel we ought to fit in! Let your horses run wild- You can wear ANY possible color on your wedding you like. Just Remember: Your outfit should speak your love for it!

8. Ostentatious Orange: Keep it Fresh and Light!

The extravagant of Orange appears pure and lovely, given the simplicity of dress and a fresh shade of orange.

#8 Bridal dress is such a grandeur feast that if you are going for a bold bright color without giving a two-shade-combination-balance, then Keep It Single! This single will be the Simply Beautiful, believe me. Although Orange is not something that clicks me, but the above dresses beautified the ladies in such a way that i'd have felt it missing had i not made them a part of my collection. So you should know how to make the bold and bright color look elegant.

9. Two-Shade Contrast: Keep a DARK with a LIGHT- Be Bold but Self-Composed

#9 Remember however hot & magnificient, grand & glam, tailored or designer outfit you dorn- It only radiates your beauty if You're Comfortable with it!

Never ignore this rule: let your dress be customed for you- that enhances you, comforts you, makes you feel self confident!
