The Coloured Wedding Dress: Spring 2013
Amber Tamblyn, one of my favourite actresses from the (so very good, don't judge me) Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants was recently married to comedian David Cross. I kind of love this couple, they're cute 'n quirky and oh-so adorable. One of the reasons I love them so much is because of Ms. Tamblyn's choice of wedding dress. Instead of going with the same ol' white dress, she threw everyone for a loop and walked down the aisle in a sunny, yellow gown. Amber isn't alone in her decision to incorporate colour into her big day. Reese Witherspoon wore a rose dress and trend maker Gwen Stefani donned a white and hot pink ombre gown.

While the coloured wedding dress may not be for everyone, you have to admit it's unique and makes a statement. A coloured gown can be a great alternative for the non-traditional bride, for a renewal or for a more casual and laid back setting.
For all the brides-to-be this spring, I'm inviting you to take a look at some of these coloured gowns. Here are ten picks that we thought were a great start to thinking outside the box.

Would you ever walk down the aisle in something a little different? Perhaps you've thought of adding a bit of colour as an accent on your dress?

I just read that Jessica Biel wore a pink wedding dress down the aisle!
I've never liked the white dress expectation. I've always wanted a black dress.
personally, I like white for a wedding dress
I would definitely wear a coloured wedding dress. I am not very traditional, and I just look better in colour. White gowns have only been the the tradition since Queen Victoria wore one when she married Prince Albert. For centuries, and in many other cultures, women have worn a variety of colours on their wedding day. I'd choose a colour that made me look and feel beautiful.
This is really an colorful wedding idea. I liked the gowns for the wedding.
Forget tradition, these dresses are awesome and speak to the individuality of the bride. LOVE!
I like the Isaac Mizrahi and the Romona Keveza Couture. I've been looking at wedding dresses for my own wedding and I found one in red that I absolutely LOVE!! But, I don't think I could really wear it... the traditional white dress is too ingrained my my brain, and I don't think I'll be able to stray from the traditional.
I am engaged and wouldn't dream of a colored dress. Traditional all the way!
That red dress is incredible! Wow. Gorgeous much? Loveeee it.
