10 Celebrity Brides Who Didn’t Wear White Dresses
A traditional wedding calls for the cutting of a tiered cake, a romantic first dance and, of course, a beautiful white wedding dress. Although these traditions may remain true for some, the celebrities of Hollywood have proven that this isn’t the only way to celebrate the big day! Many celebrities have proven that, with their choice of bridal attire, bending the rules and breaking traditional wedding expectations can result in a seriously epic fashion moment. Follow along for 10 celebrity brides who opted against the traditional wedding gown and wore a different color dress on the big day:
10. Sarah Jessica Parker
Although many may remember Sarah Jessica Parker’s biggest wedding moment from the Sex and the City movie, her real-life wedding actually looked the complete opposite of the glamorous Carrie Bradshaw! The dress definitely made quite the stir back in 2009 and at the time she claimed the reason behind her dress was to avoid drawing attention to herself. In 2016, however, she admitted that if she could get married again she would have done it differently. “I’d wear a beautiful, proper wedding dress, like I should have worn that day,” she told the Today show.
9. Gwen Stefani
Despite their decision to go separate ways, when Gwen Stefani married Gavin Rossdale back in 2002, the rocker couple definitely lived up their edgy reputation. Gwen broke from the traditional white wedding gown and wore a custom Christian Dior gown designed by John Galliano. The dress incorporated traditional aspects by featuring a princess-style voluminous skirt but broke expectations by featuring a hot pink dip-dyed bottom. Gwen was definitely one of the first brides to wear a colored wedding look and arguably started the trend that many nontraditional celebrity brides followed in the years to come.
