Ivory is a timeless shade for weddings, but as much as it is loved in the western society (hint: white weddings), many frown upon the colourless theme in eastern cultures. In Pakistani culture, the very many shades of red have always been a favourite for weddings. Fortunately, the trend is gradually shifting and nowadays, more brides are donning ivory with a hint of gold on their big day.
The winning color combo goes well with any skin complexion; varying shades of white keep the sheen of gold grounded, while the subtle gold elevates the ivory. If elegance and poise are what you’re after and are planning to survive a hectic shaadi day during the current heat wave in Pakistan, then opting for an ivory and gold theme for your wedding dress is the right choice.
Let’s take a look at how some of our favourite celebrities wore the combination in their wedding festivities and won us over!
