Can You Pull Off a Colored Wedding Dress?

Published on Nov 6, 2012 by April Knobles


A colored wedding dress is not for everyone. It is a way to set yourself apart from tradition and do something daring for a change. Colored wedding dresses have become a wedding trend recently with pink being the most common choice for an alternative color to white. Celebrities such as Reese Witherspoon, Gwen Stefani, and most recently Jessica Biel added a splash of color to the wedding gown. They all pulled off the color beautifully, but can you?

It takes a special bride to wear a color other than white on her wedding day. You have to have a bold personality, and be willing to shrug off those who might gasp at something so different. Gwen Stefani wore a Christian Dior white gown with pink accents during her wedding with Gavin Rossdale in 2002.


Once you choose the color of your dress, you can coordinate the color scheme of your entire wedding to match. Things like centerpieces, wedding favors, table cloths, and chair covers can all be matched to your color of choice to make your wedding day come together beautifully. These "Elegant Orchid" Tealight Holders would make an elegant addition to a pink themed wedding.


As long as you are truly happy with your color choice and you feel beautiful in the gown, that is all that really matters. So go for it! Try something different, and stand out on your wedding day.
