While some brides are drawn to beautiful and forever classic bridal white, ivory and cream, others may envision themselves in shades of blush, blue, mint, or red on their wedding day. If you fall into the latter category, you're probably on the hunt for the perfect colorful wedding dress.

Before you start your search, you should determine what shade will best celebrate your personal style and complement your wedding color palette. While blush is fast becoming the new take on the white wedding gown, there are many other colors out there to choose from. If you're a bride who prefers a hint of color, consider shades of soft gray, lilac, and powder blue. If you're looking to make a dramatic statement, opt for high-impact colors like emerald green, red, and even bright pink.

Whether you're having a black-tie or casual beach wedding, we've rounded up the best colorful wedding dresses fit for every style, budget, and color palette.
