One trend that has gained popularity in recent years and one we will be seeing more of in the coming year is wearing a red wedding dress on the big day. The Pantone colour of the year 2023 is called Viva Magenta. An unconventional shade of red that represents empowerment. 

According to Pantone, “It is a new animated red that revels in pure joy, encouraging experimentation and self-expression without restraint, an electrifying, and a boundaryless shade that is manifesting as a stand-out statement.”We can’t wait to see brides in 2023 express themselves without restraint and experiment with this bold shade.

Red is also a significant colour in many cultural traditions around the world. While it’s tradition for most Western countries to go for whites and lighter colours for their wedding dress, it’s quite the opposite for Indian brides. For them, the colour red has a religious significance, it represents Durga Mata who is associated with protection and strength, or Mars’ colour which is an important planet of marriage in astrology. The red colour may also represent passion, love, and prosperity.

Similarly, the Ao Da or qipaoi, a traditional Vietnamese and Chinese wedding dress is often made in shades of red to represent prosperity and good fortune for the newlyweds. The colour red is very powerful and significant to Vietnamese and Chinese culture. It is believed to symbolise luck, joy, and happiness. It also wards off evil which is why brides wear red on their special day.
