13 beautiful coloured wedding dresses

A look at the best coloured wedding dresses for those that are bored of white or ivory.

The appeal for something different follows a celebrity trend for coloured wedding dresses. Jessica Biel wore pink when she married Justin Timberlake in 2012, as did Gwen Stefani, Anne Hathaway and Keira Knightley. And who could forget the short yellow chiffon frock that Elizabeth Taylor wore when she married Richard Burton in 1964?

Keep it colourful

We don’t all want to walk down the aisle in a traditional white wedding dress. If you’re considering opting for colour – good for you! Many designers incorporate colour in to their collections, from delicate muted shades of mocha and dusky pink to deeper shades of red and gold.

Whatever your style or budget, we think these talented designers will inspire you…

Temperley London

It’s no surprise that Alice Temperley’s bridal collection is monumentally stylish. We love the elegant Tamir dress from her Summer 2016 collection – just perfect for a contemporary wedding, moving effortlessly from day to evening.

Claire Pettibone

With a vision to combine vintage romance with an enchanted bohemian spirit, it’s easy to see why the Claire Pettibone collection has been so well-received. For a splash of colour, look no further than the breathtaking Raven gown – black tulle embroidered with pink and red roses over silver sequins. If you want to make an entrance… this is how.

Ivy & Aster

Brides looking to move away from the pure white wedding gown to an equally delicate shade should look no further than the romantic collection by Ivy and Aster. We love their soft shades of ivory and cream, in particular the Roman Holiday gown with its hint of gold.
