Classy Not Trashy: Wedding Gowns in Hues of Nude to Champagne

Classy not trashy wedding gowns in nude

Wedding dresses in colors other than white have been on the scene for some time. But we seem to note a growing trend now for brides to choose gowns in hues of nude, including champagne, taupe, and sometimes matte gold. These are a break from tradition while remaining classic, elegant, and sophisticated—as proven by these gorgeous bridal creations we are showcasing here. Fabrics range from silk to tulle to daintily or elaborately embellished lace. Just as the designs and looks vary, too. Come survey the possibilities of a non-white wedding gown in different nuances of nude!
