We are feeling awfully patriotic here at WeddingWire HQ this week, and wanted to share a little red, white, and blue wedding dress inspiration. Of course, there are an abundance of white wedding dresses out there, but we found it interesting that two of the most popular non-white wedding dress colors from the most recent bridal market were red and (pale) blue.

Red: Vera Wang‘s entire collection (including the dress at top, left) was in shades of red and burgundy, while the finale gown at Romona Keveza (top, right) was a rich shade of crimson.
White: Layers and layers of white tulle on these ballgowns by Maggie Sottero (center, left) and Kenneth Pool (center, right).
Blue: Pale blue wedding dresses appeared in several collections, including Oscar de la Renta (bottom, left), and Angel Sanchez (bottom, right).
What do you think of these red, white, and blue wedding gowns? Let us know in the comments!
Vice President Joe Biden’s daughter Ashley married Dr. Howard Krein over the weekend in Delaware. She wore a custom ivory silk mermaid gown by Vera Wang, accented with draped tulle and an organza petal skirt. The illusion v-neckline and fitted silhouette are right on trend, but the look still feels traditional and feminine. If you’re a fan of Ashley Biden’s wedding dress, check out these two similar styles, straight from the Spring 2013 runways:

At left, the Alvina Valenta gown features the same illusion v-neckline and detailed skirt, while the Isaac Mizrahi for Kleinfeld gown pictured at right, has a v-neckline and fitted silhouette, but adds black floral details for a little edge. Which gown is your favorite?
