Tutus, bubble gum, a piggy bank, some breeds of unicorn, and now...Reese Witherspoon's wedding dress. While everyone's still guessing as to the style, we can report that Reese's strapless Monique Lhuillier gown was pink—and not ombre hot pink ala Gwen Stefani, but a head-to-toe pale hue.
Designers like (clockwise from top left) Oscar de la Renta, Jenny Lee, Romona Keveza, and Claire Pettibone often look to blush tones as a soft, romantic alternative to white. There's no rule barring second-time brides like Reese from wearing white (and we'd ignore it if there were), but brides looking to change things up from the first dress can't go wrong with pink. As with white, the range of pink options offers subtle variations to best match different skin tones. Was pale pink right on fair-skinned Reese? Unless she leaks (or sells) her wedding photos, we'll have to closely eye those paparazzi helicopter shots to find out. To see more pink gowns, visit our Wedding Dresses gallery. —Phillip B. Crook
