If there's one important thing we've learned about wedding planning, it's this: you don't have to follow all the rules. White gowns may be the standard, but as the bride, you're entitled to wear any color gown you want. Opting for something like a pink wedding dress is a fun way to add some color to your look, show off your own personal style, and make your big night a little bit more unique.

Choosing a pink dress is the perfect way to take a traditional staple, like a wedding gown, and make it feel more fresh and modern. It's also surprisingly versatile! If you want a more classic look, stick with a light pink or a blush shade. If your goal is to be bold and stand out, then search for gowns with deep or bright pink hues. And although there are plenty of pink pieces out there, you don't have to get one that was made with a bride in mind. There are tons of stunning pink formal gowns that can work for any bridal look.

Below, we've put together a list of beautiful pink wedding dresses you can buy now and love for years to follow.

What to Look for in a Pink Wedding Dress

Pink wedding dresses are a great choice for brides who want to stand out but don't want to stray too far from the traditional. If you're looking for the perfect pink gown for your big night, first decide what kind of statement you want to make. For those who want to go big and bold, opt for a dress that is bright and, at first glance, doesn't appear too bridal. However, if you want to keep the color subtle, look for a blush shade that feels romantic and soft. Like any other wedding gown, be sure to stay true to your personal style.

FAQ
  • How do I style a pink wedding dress?

    Since your pink wedding dress is really going to be your standout piece, you can keep the rest of your look more minimal. Think clean, subtle jewelry (gold looks particularly nice with pink) and simple heels.

  • Are pink wedding dresses less formal than white wedding dresses?

    White wedding dresses may come off as more formal, but that certainly doesn't mean pink can't be ceremonial. A rule of thumb is to always consider the exact shade of pink, as a blush gown may be more appropriate than fuchsia for a black-tie wedding.

  • What color shoes do I wear with a pink wedding dress?

    A nude shoe is probably your best option with a pink wedding dress. Simple and versatile, nude will look good with almost any shade and can even be worn for other events. You can also look for something off-white or ivory.
