Is a white wedding dress just not right for you? Increasingly brides are opting for beautiful bright alternatives to the more traditional white gown, sometimes because it reflects their personality or the style of the wedding, but also because the dress can be worn again afterwards!
Happily there have always been brides who have embraced beautiful colors on their big day, in fact some of the biggest Hollywood stars have married wearing unconventional colors: Elizabeth Taylor married Richard Burton wearing canary yellow with flowers in her hair, and Marilyn Monroe wore a brown suit for her marriage to Joe DiMaggio, and a pale pink gown when she married Arthur Miller.
More recently Dita von Teese wore an amazing purple Vivienne Westwood gown when she married Marilyn Manson and who can forget Gwen Stefani's pink dip-dyed Galliano dress?
Happily this means that we have a stunning collection of vintage colored wedding dresses ranging from this stunning red 1940s satin wedding dress (below), through dramatic gold to the prettiest pastels. Which color best reflects your personality?
