Celebrities are known for breaking and bending style rules, so it should come as no surprise that several skirted tradition on their wedding day and wore a colored wedding dress. From saffron yellow to lilac and shades of black, a vibrant color is one of the best ways to make a wedding dress stand out. Unsurprisingly, big personalities like Gwen Stefani and Amber Tamblyn went the way of a non-white gown. The bold hues speak volumes about personal style — and that's one of the things we like the most about them.
But it's not just daring trendsetters choosing to say "I do" in a colorful gown: Stars who are known for their signature classic style — including Reese Witherspoon and Anne Hathaway — also walked down the aisle wearing a non-white wedding dress.
Most recently, Alison Pill wore a retro yellow dress to her Memorial Day wedding, while Kaley Cuoco Sweeting donned a custom pink Vera Wang gown for her wedding, and it perfectly encapsulated her bubbly, outgoing personality. And fashion maven Jessica Biel shocked everyone when she married Justin Timberlake in a petal-pink Giambattista Valli wedding dress in October 2012.
These brides are just the latest in a series of women walking down the aisle in vibrantly-hued wedding dresses, a trend arguably popularized by the yellow chiffon frock Elizabeth Taylor wore to marry Richard Burton (the first time) in 1964.
