7 Not-White Wedding Dresses for Brides Who Don’t Want to Look Classic

Latest news

    The decision about what you’re going to wear for your big day can be tough, especially if you want something less traditional. But have you ever considered a coloured wedding dress? True, they’re not exactly new—Elizabeth Taylor wore a yellow frock for her nuptials to Richard Burton back in 1964—but they can be a more exciting alternative to a white gown. So, what colours are okay for your big day? Well, anything, really. You shouldn’t be dictated by trends or what other people think. Remember the moment is all about you.

    However, there is one tiny snag when opting for this type of frock: There’s a possibility of a guest turning up in the same look. To avoid this, we suggest mentioning on the invitation that guests should avoid this colour. Problem solved. In the meantime, to give you some inspiration, keep scrolling to see our pick of the best coloured gowns you can wear for your wedding. In keeping with the less traditional vibe, we’ve looked at more interesting silhouettes too.

    Don’t forget to pin these to your wedding board. 

    While this isn’t the boldest of pinks, the tulle and the asymmetric style give it a contemporary edge. Not to mention it’s been created by one of the coolest designers around: Virgil Abloh.

    Dark blue or light blue is such a great choice for a coloured wedding dress. Try a designer like Jenny Packham for a great embellished style (prices upon request). Or, for the less expensive option, Needle & Thread has some gorgeous styles too.

    Ah, red. We’ve told you before that this is the colour that suits everyone, so why wouldn’t you opt for the hue on your big day? Try a Solange Knowles–inspired cape from the likes of Elie Saab for an understated yet still dramatic bridal look.

    Temperley does offer bridalwear, but it also has some great coloured dress options that would be perfect for a bold bridal style. This green dress gives you sequins and bright colour in one. What more could you want?

    Liz Taylor was well ahead of the game when she wore her yellow dress for her nuptials to Richard Burton. Right now, yellow is one of the hottest colours around. Self-Portrait has this incredible tiered gown that would look gorgeous in the sun at a destination wedding. Just make sure no guests turn up in the same frock.

    Bridal dress designer Charlie Brear does offer made-to-measure wedding gowns. However, you don’t want to miss out on the brand’s coloured dresses. This copper gown is ideal for the minimalist bride.
