Truth be told, for each Real BB Weddings bride who embraces pink for her wedding bouquet, there’s one just behind her who wants nothing to do with the color. Pink symbolizes compassion, femininity, love, and romance – everything you want on your big day. And because of this, it tends to be a bold color on the eye and emotions, thus, influencing the overall aesthetics and mood of a weddingscape. If your style is modern, refined, or understated, high-impact may not be what you are going for. Recently, however, we are seeing clients use pink in innovating ways that will make naysayers have a change of heart. Neutral, muted, soft blush, even nude are the adjectives that come to mind when describing these calming pink tones that are appearing more and more in bridal arrangements.

“I don’t think anyone thought I was going to be in a ballgown. I knew I wanted something that was form-fitting, a little bit sexy while also being traditional,” BB Featured Bride Dayna says. With her vision in sight, she set out to find a dress that encapsulated her sense of style – modern, feminine, and sophisticated. Here, Dayna shares all the details about her striking Pnina Tornai gown and personals.

Part 2: Dress, Bouquet, & Shoes

The process of finding a dress was still full of surprises for Dayna. She recalls, “I started pinning dresses right after we became engaged. I’m a shopping addict but trying on wedding dresses was a totally different experience.” Her mother came in from Boston to help and they devoted an entire weekend to the endeavor. The day before her official appointments, they did a trial run, stopping into one store to try on a few looks. “I recommend this to everyone – it was so helpful to see how the different styles looked and felt.”
