19 coloured dresses for brides who don't want to wear white

Coloured wedding dress
Wearing the big white wedding dress isn't for every bride. 
It could be because white has never suited your skin tone. Or maybe white just isn't 'you', or it's a colour not traditionally worn at weddings in your culture. Once upon a time, wearing a shade other than white would've been a gutsy, even scandalous, move. Now? Thanks to a slew of celeb weddings and colourful bridal collections, getting hitched in a dyed frock, whether it be a striking red, soft blush or an unexpected green, is just like polishing off a chocolate bar after your Pilates class: totally acceptable. So, in the name of all things bright and cheerful, we've compiled the ultimate rainbow of wedding dresses, right here.

Lady in red

If you've run through the colours of the rainbow in your head and remembered there's no pink, don't fret. We've taken it upon ourselves to usher pink dresses under the red wedding dress umbrella. You're welcome.

Orange you glad you wore colour?

Orange might seem an unexpected choice but if you really want to make a statement it's probably the hue for you. Coral is perfectly matched to a relaxed beach wedding, while rich copper or rose gold is a dream for ladies who want to get their A-list game on.

Mellow in yellow

If ever there was a colour for spring and summer, it'd be yellow. And so if your wedding falls in these seasons, a sunshine-hued dress just makes sense. Go bright and bold with a sunflower yellow, understated with a muted shade or embrace all things sparkly with gold.

Make them green with envy

Calling all red-headed brides! Pairing your auburn or fire-engine tinted locks with a green frock is a no-brainer, but green can work for brunettes and blondes too. If you think a vivid emerald gown could be too much, opt for a sea green or a mint.

Feeling blue

Blair Waldorf did it and that means you can too. A darker shade of blue like midnight or navy is perfect for a black-tie or formal dress code. If you're getting hitched during the day, go for a softer, lighter hue.
