11 Celebrities Who Didn’t Wear A White Wedding Dress [+Photos]
Celebrities Who Didn’t Wear A White Wedding Dress – When one thinks of a wedding, there are many things that come to mind: the vows, the bouquet toss, the cutting of the cake, the horrible songs the DJ plays. Of all of the things associated with a wedding, a woman wearing a white gown is probably the most popular tradition.
Wearing a white wedding gown only came into traditional after Queen Victoria walked down the aisle sporting a white gown herself, even though red was actually the most popular color of that time for brides to wear. Though other royals had in fact worn a white wedding gown before Queen Victoria, she is credited with starting the tradition of wearing a white wedding gown.
For most women, searching for the perfect wedding gown is an essential part of the wedding planning experience. Most of these women will go with a traditional white wedding gown. Only 5% of David’s Bridal’s sales are colored wedding gowns, meaning 95% of the dresses sold at the largest wedding gown retailer in the United States are traditional white gowns.
Considering the fact that celebrities are always doing things just a little bit differently, it should come as no surprise that some female celebrities have chosen to forgo the traditional white wedding gown and wear something else on their special day. Be it pink, black or red, here are eleven celebrity brides who went with something other than white during their trip down the aisle.
11. Anne Hathaway – The Bride With A Touch Of Pink
Oscar winning actress Anne Hathaway is often a favorite of the fashion world. Her slender physique can seemingly pull off anything. Anything just so happens to include a custom Valentino gown with a pink hemline. During her low-key nuptials to the actor/jewelry designer Adam Shulman, she choose to forego a traditional all white dress and rebelled with just a touch a pink at the bottom. Perhaps she had already had her fill of an all-white wedding gown after wearing one in Bride Wars. To accessorize the gown, she skipped the jewelry but wore a 1920s-esque headband.
