With the debut of [actress] Jessica Biel’s petal pink wedding gown, we are noticing a new trend on the rise; non-traditional wedding dresses. More and more brides are opting to add a splash of color to their special day. Designers are featuring bold dresses in reds and blues, as well as gowns for the more subtle bride in blush and champagne. Rani Totman, designer of St. Pucchi, was one of the first designers to introduce color to the bridal scene. Her collections feature a range of shades and very rarely any stark white gowns. Below are three of Rani’s most eye-catching colored gowns, that we just can’t take our eyes off of!
