These Are The Best Wedding Dress Colors If You’re Not Into White

Here’s the thing: girl, you’re a colorful woman. And colorful women deserve colorful wedding dresses.

White isn’t for everyone. Sure, it’s a classic and you can never really go wrong with a white gown, but is it the end-all-be-all? Absolutely not.

The past few years have seen a rise in bold wedding dresses: from vibrant yellows to cheeky pink shades, wedding dresses now come in nearly every color of the spectrum. A dress in a bright hue is a fun way to infuse a bit of color to your wedding, plus it allows you to showcase your personality in a non-traditional way.

Not sure where to start or whether your favorite shade can even be a wedding dress? Keep scrolling.

A bright yellow dress might not necessarily scream wedding, but the sunny shade is perfect for brides looking for a way to brighten up their big day. Yellow gowns are particularly striking in woodsy outdoor weddings and on a dress with a structured silhouette.

Blue — whether it’s a pretty turquoise or a royal blue — can look striking for any beachside wedding. It adds an ethereal vibe, plus it’s the easiest way to get your “something blue” off your bridal checklist!

Pink bridal gowns are a celebrity favorite for a reason. The hue is feminine yet packs a bit of a tough-girl edge — Gwen Stefani even wore a fuschia-dipped gown on her wedding day!

If you’re the kind of bride that isn’t afraid of a bit of drama, a black gown is for you! Keep your look from getting too goth (unless you’re into that style!) by opting for a girly silhouette in traditionally feminine fabrics, like tulle and lace.

While the words “red” and “wedding” might set off a few alarms in your head, there’s nothing more jaw-dropping than a red wedding dress. It lends a powerhouse vibe to your wedding that will be sure to stick in your guests’ minds for years to come.

Purple is synonymous with royalty, so you know you’ll look extra-regal on your big day! Opt for a soft violet if you’re looking for just a bit of girly flair, or a deep amethyst hue for even more drama.
