White Christmas, White Wedding

I can’t help it, I’ve been dreaming of a White Christmas. Maybe it’s because white, always an important wedding color has become THE wedding trend of the year. First there was Pippa Middleton’s white Maid-of-Honor dress, then Kim Kardashian’s instructions that guests should wear white to her ill-fated wedding, then the Knot declared White as one of the top luxury trends of the year.
