Well, to make the things slightly easier for you, let us give you one advice that will help you to decide the colour of your dress quickly. Always select the colour of your bridal outfit according to your skin tone. Right colour will always complement your complexion while the wrong one can spoil your entire look.

1) Fair complexion

If you have a fair skin tone, then you have a wide variety of colours to choose from. As most colours look good only on your skin tone, prefer the ones that will look best on you. So, opt for any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. And, if you are planning to tie the knot this wedding season, then let us give you some specific options in blue- scuba blue or royal blue. Among other favourites this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine. And, not to miss the colour of the year- marsala.

And, if you want to wear some soft colours on your wedding day, then colours like peach, light pink, mint green and light purple will suit you best. However, avoid soft shades of brown and grey as they tend to fade away in front of your complexion.
