For some brides traditional style just won’t cut it. Even a few of Hollywood’s glamorous “It” girls have given the “white wedding” a swift backhand to the face (complete with chunky rings to make sure it leaves a mark).
The famous bride-to-be times eight, Elizabeth Taylor, dropped the white in favor of yellow in nuptial number five to actor Richard Burton.
Trend-setter Gwen Stefani found her dream dress in a touch of traditional mixed with an ombre pink wash.
For sultry stripteaser Dita Von Teese, a darkly romantic deep blue was only natural.
If “go big or go home” is your motto, then put down the white gown and sashay right in to the wide world of colorful wedding dresses. For the truly daring, forget labels and shop the prom section to score creative treasures like a peacock-style dress. Take modern sophistication to new levels in a steel gray gown or go big and flouncy in soft pastels for the ultimate in feminine allure.
For rule-breaking brides, the first step in moving away from tradition is finding a gown in anything but pure white. Go ahead, it’s easier than you think!
