“Adding color to your wedding is one of the hottest trends in bridal,” says Amanda Sheronas, director of public relations and special events for bridal attire design company Alfred Angelo. “For brides wanting to celebrate their heritage through Celtic or Irish theme weddings, Alfred Angelo offers many beautiful options in its Alfred Angelo, Alfred Angelo Sapphire, and Alfred Angelo Bridesmaids and Flower Girl collections.
“In the Dream In Color collection, brides have several silhouettes to choose from, where they can select one of eight different shades of green or ten shades of blue (the Irish believe blue is a lucky color) for the trim and/or back panel of the Dream In Color dress. This allows them to personalize their gown to their own taste or with the family’s colors, as well as coordinate the wedding party.
“The Alfred Angelo collections additionally offer beautiful gowns, with intricate lace and beading, similar to Celtic patterns, if they choose an all white or all ivory gown. These gowns’ subtle details are in keeping with the craftsmanship of the Irish lace workers, and create drama through the beautiful hand-workmanship on each dress.”
