Gone are the days where virginal white is the only choice in the color of bridal gowns. These days, individuality is the key to having a special wedding.
Online PR News – 22-August-2012 – Valparaiso. IN – Gone are the days where virginal white is the only choice in the color of bridal gowns. These days, individuality is the key to having a special wedding. Brides are also more mindful of budget, given the current economic climate. Choosing black as their bridal party color, or even for themselves, can help a bride to feel unique and save money at the same time.
Even the best known designer of bridal couture, Vera Wang, now offers beautiful wedding gowns in black. In a testament to how popular bridal black is becoming, Wang now offers not just one or two but nine different wedding gowns that are mostly black. Even Martha Stewart – the standard of mass-marketed traditionalism – suggests “black and cameo” as a wedding theme, juxtaposing the severity of the color against the softness of a classic cameo, the image of sophistication and femininity.
For brides on a budget, black is an especially savvy color choice.
Black means that many of the most expensive wedding components do not need to be purchased at a specialty retailer. Little black dresses for bridesmaids can be purchased at nearly any department store instead of a bridal salon, and the ladies are almost guaranteed to wear them again.
The same goes for décor items like candles, table linens, and trinket boxes. They can be reused to decorate the marital home, or sent home with guests as a gift. Brides who hope to save money on invitations can do so by making their invitations with black card stock from CutCardStock.com.
“Black is becoming more popular for weddings, partly because it’s diverse and chic. Brides can look back at the wedding photos years later and still enjoy them, unlike those who might regret choosing a trendy color. Also, choosing black gives the couple a chance to save some money without sacrificing the look they want,” said Cindy Croats of CutCardStock.com. “We have customers who have purchased black card stock from us to make wedding invitations, and end up using what’s left over for birth announcements a few years later.”
In addition to black card stock, CutCardStock.com also offers discount card stock in various sizes and specialized services, like paper scoring and personalized cutting.
CutCardStock.com began as the brainchild of Cindy and Darrell Crots, a hardworking American couple with a love of crafting. After searching for cardstock in smaller than standard sizes, Cindy saw a hole in the marketplace and began selling smaller sizes of cardstock that she had cut by hand. Since beginning in 2006 at the couple’s dining room table, the business has grown to fill a 2000 square foot warehouse.
