White is slowly being drowned out in favour of black while some prices are going down to help budget brides designers at Barcelona Bridal Week have said.

Rosa Clara, who has hired Mischa Barton to walk down the catwalk and the designer who is pioneering black, however is ignoring bride’s hopes of cheaper dresses.

She told Spanish paper Eitb: “As for 2011 we have completely ignored the crisis. We continue with our collections. Today we introduced much more innovative collection. It is very new. We have even introduced other colours like black, which is very revolutionary. So I think we have to forget about the crisis and start to look forward. A period of crisis means a period of opportunities. And we need to know how to be there.”

However Estanislao Solsona said that when the economic crisis hit he decided to lower his prices to attract clients.

“A girl who wants to get married will do it anyway but with a much tighter budget. So we have tried to adapt to this situation. We are offering our services these days at a lower price, ” he said.

With such mixed views we’re not sure what next years pricing will be like, but one thing is for sure. Black is no longer a frowned upon colour when it comes to your wedding dress.
