Our Favorite Wedding Dresses with a Pop of Color!

Our Favorite Wedding Dresses with a Pop of Color

Did you happen to catch last month’s round-up of our favorite black wedding dresses? We thought it was about time to add a pop of color! And, for those that are curious as to why wedding dresses are typically white, well, that’s all Queen Victoria’s fault. We kid, we kid, but almost ALL wedding dresses worn before 1840 were actually colorful, not white. Blue was a popular choice, and many brides opted for dark colors—better for hiding stains + imperfections, so the dress could be worn again.

Whatever the reason—whether you want to stay away from trends and traditions, or simply because you want to incorporate your favorite color into the big day, we’re all for mixing things up and rocking a colorful wedding dress! From those that are dip-dyed, made of airy tulle, or simple and striking in all yellow, we’re sharing our favorite colorful wedding dresses! Oh, and make sure you don’t miss the hand-painted rainbow gown (the most popular gown we’ve ever shared!!).
