How to work it: Shades of grey
You can add ethereal or edgy glamour with this season's crop of metallic and dove greys. Gown by Modeca

The cool way to channel your most sophisticated self, grey adds a sharp or ethereal twist to bridal dressing

Words Libby Norman

This season designers are offering gowns in shades ranging from steel and dove to gunmetal. We love this fresh twist on traditional bridal dressing because grey can create so many effects. Blended with whites and blues it becomes ethereal, while polished steel and silvery shades add sophistication. If you want to stick to white, add accessories in bright or burnished tones to add a sharp and contemporary edge.
