Mainland Mod features styles and trends coming out of North America
Some women are choosing to amp up the romance on their wedding day by forgoing the innocent bridal white colour palette and literally being a blushing bride.
This season's wedding dresses have taken on a colourful hue, so you too should consider saying 'I do' to blush, lavender, purple and other rose-coloured bridal gowns like the Alfred Angelo wedding dress pictured at left!
Fashion Tip: Pair this fashion-forward bridal look with a beautiful bouquet that's grounded in romantic traditionalism (think old-fashioned garden roses)! Check out these enchanting English garden rose bouquets for ideas!
When actress Reese Witherspoon married Jim Toth, she wore a Monique Lhuillier blush-hued bridal gown and carried a bouquet of cream-coloured English garden roses that were wrapped in silk ribbon to match her satin ribbon belt.
Belts and sashes in blush and other colours are also popular bridal trends.

Fashion Tip (for those of you who dream of being a classic bride, but are nevertheless intrigued by the use of colour): Choose a white wedding dress that has a coloured sash like this gown from Vera Wang's Spring 2012 Collection.
Hope we've given you some useful ideas for your upcoming wedding. Congratulations to your groom and best wishes to you!
