If you are a bride-to-be who has an unconventional taste, you can skip the more traditional colours like white, pink, and grey in favour of the striking and flattering sapphire blue colour. It looks especially good when paired with adorable sparkles!

7. Dress #7

Red is another interesting choice for a wedding reception gown – it highlights your already high status as the bride. Red can be paired with many colours, but silver sequins create a particularly interesting combination.
