Of the long list of wedding traditions, the most widely practiced is that the bride must be in white. But what if white isn’t your thing? Maybe you’re more drawn to color or perhaps love the chic simplicity of black, even for your big day.
We’ve got nothing but encouraging words when it comes to breaking free of the white dress mold. We love a classic ivory bridal moment, but are enthusiastic proponents of expressing individuality in whichever way you see fit, including a unique gown choice. Iconic bridal designers like Vera Wang, Jenny Packham and Monique Lhullier are also champions of colour, and have sent stunning hues down their bridal week runways for seasons.
Still not convinced? Celebs like Kaley Cuoco Sweeting, Jessica Biel and Shenae Grimes Beech dared to dabble in non-white dresses, and looked absolutely breathtaking on their big days. Peep their pictures, and get inspired to wear whatever your heart desires down that aisle. After all, it’s your day, bride!
