Can Wedding Dresses Be Dyed?

So, what's the number one question that brides continue to ask? - "Can you Dye your wedding dress?"  Here's our answer, "it's  definitely possible."

Brides are now looking for different ways to personalize any or all parts of their wedding that are in accordance with their styles, personalities, and swagger. 
It's not about the cookie-cutter look anymore. It's about an expression of one's self.  
Brides are running the gamut as to where their wedding colors should be. So, instead of just adding their color(s) to only the ceremony/reception (inside, possible outside), brides are now looking to add their wedding color(s) to their dresses. 
Here's the caveat to this, it all depends on the fabric of the dress and the embellishments of the specific gown. For instance, silk will stand up to dying while satin, polyesters, and lace are less permeable, they will not take the color.  Therefore, choose a dress that will accomplish what you are aiming for. 

4 Tips To Keep In Mind: 

1. Do not attempt to do it yourselves
2. Make sure you dry clean your dress before proceeding. Stains will affect the dying process and might even be emphasized in another color
3. Check with the boutique you purchased your dress to see if they offer this option. Or, see if they can give you referrals.
4. Bear in mind that any beading or embellishment on your dress will remain white when dyed, so don't go ahead with it unless you want the contrasting look!

Below, we have put together a few looks to give you an idea of different ombre styled dresses, that are made to turn heads at your wedding:

  1. This is an interesting development in the wedding dress arena. I am not too sure how I feel about dying a wedding dress. The last dress does look pretty.

    1. We like that brides are personalizing their wedding and walking away from the traditional dresses. The good thing about this ideas, you are able to wear this dress again - vow renewal, anniversary night out, date night, etc. Thanks for visiting and sharing your feedback. Please share.

    1. We have been talking about this since last year... Surprisingly, we found a bride (the last photo) who thought the same and did this...Her dress coordinated with her bouquet, the cake and her wedding was outdoor. Everything looked so wonderful.

  3. The dip-dyed look of those dresses is really different. I actually love the black one, I guess you would worry less about the bottom getting dirty as well as it wouldn't show so much haha!

    1. Every bride has her own style of personalizing her dress. If you are not bold enough, you can opt for dresses with a touch of color or complete color. We have written a few articles on this idea on our blog, you are welcome to check them out. Thanks for visiting and sharing your feedback. Happy holidays. Please share.

  5. Oh gosh. What a lovely idea. It's a great way to repurpose a wedding dress, or to make a traditional gown stand out at a wedding. Loved the pictures where the flowers matched the dye.

  6. This is definitely a unique technique to use on a wedding dress. It looks pretty but seems more fitting for other dresses and not a wedding dress as far as adding color, and the style is more relaxed.

    1. It all depends on the kind of wedding - formal, simple/chic, rustic, vintage, etc. Also, it's about brides showing their style throughout their wedding. Why limit your tastes to your bouquet, centerpiece, food invitations, etc. Thanks for visiting and sharing your feedback. Happy holidays. Please share.

  17. Oh my!I had never thought about dying a white gown before but it definitely happens. But trust me, I wouldn't do it myself or else I'll destroy the whole gown. From the collection, I love the pinkish one.
