With traditions taking a backseat, we LOVE seeing more and more couples creating one-of-a-kind weddings tailored to their one-of-a-kind love stories. And, as much as we adore a chic white wedding gown, there’s something so cool about rocking an unconventional dress!

If you want something unique but still gorgeously bridal for your big day, why not try a pretty in pink blush wedding gown? They’re feminine, flirty, and perfect if you’re all about the balletcore aesthetic!

For a more daring look, a black wedding gown is a MUST. With dark wedding ideas trending big time right now (we have Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker to thank for that!), you can expect to see gothic glam EVERYWHERE in the coming years. Now’s your chance to make this statement look your own.

As you saw with these rainbow wedding dresses, no hue is off the table when it comes to creating a wedding look you love. From sunny yellow to that something blue, we’ve rounded up the most gorgeous colorful wedding gowns for every style.
