It's about time brides colored outside the lines. White wedding dresses will never not dominate the bridal runways and wedding aisles, but more and more brides are taking on the rainbow with fanciful frocks in an array of saturated shades. From blush, champagne, and even bold blues, colorful wedding dresses add a touch of personality and tons of modernity to an old-school tradition and prove to be a serious standout in a sea of white. But with only the racks upon racks of ivory-colored gowns you see in most bridal boutiques, it's often even more difficult a task to say yes to the colorful dress than it is normally. That's why we rounded up a slew of vivid, graphic gowns brides can buy right now.
