If you're a traditional kind of gal, you've probably always pictured yourself strutting down the aisle in a beautiful white or ivory gown. Am I right? If I said mentioned the colours blush, pink, green, gray or black, would you reel in horror? Blush gowns in particular have been stealing the show for a couple of years now and still on trend in 2013, in fact any coloured dress is. I wish I had know this was coming when I was choosing my own dress in 2011 and my mum politely explained "unfortunately white or ivory just don't do anything for your skin tone"!!

Although when photos were initially released of Reese’s 2011 custom Monique Lhullier, we were a little surprised it was pink, it turns out the now Mrs Toth was ahead of the game. Her look overall was so soft and so pretty.. very Reese, we love it.
