Colorful Weddings: Not All Bridal Gowns Are White

Here to help you along your way is a short guide to the latest wedding color trends with weddings, photographers, sellers and know-it-alls where you can find inspiration.

For myself I definitely prefer the traditional white, but these ladies all look beautiful in their dresses and gowns. I especially like the vibrant colors of the saris in the first picture.

Love it. I hate white so much, and I look horrid in white. I'd probably go with green or blue or purple. Or even pinkish maybe. Cool stuff.

These are cute. I always thought that if I ever get married, I'd want to wear yellow because it's my favorite color and shouldn't I be wearing my favorite color on my wedding day?

Being an Indian, our weddings are always anything but white!! i always admire the white gowns in catholic weddings :) Indian weddings are always colourful and loud. I love that too.. its fun to be flashy occasionally ;)

I love when wedding dresses are white with a little splash of colour. I don't think I could part totally from the white dress, for me it just doesn't feel like a wedding without it, but a little colour adds a ton of character, imo :)

I love the white dress with red trim.

I especially like the colourful saris of the first wedding picture. This appears to be a picture of a Sikh wedding. A nice collection of wedding photographs across continents and countries.

Ooh, all these are so beautiful! I'm gonna have some colour in my wedding, I think traditional white looks horrid and rather boring.
