Pretty, pastel, perfectly bridal pink is the new white when it comes to wedding gowns this season. From dusty rose and cherry blossom to barely-there nudes and bubblegum, there’s a shade out there just begging to be worn on the first day of your happily ever after.
Feminine ribbon detailing is girly and sophisticated all at once.
