Throwback Thursday: Coloured Wedding Dresses!



Hi Dolls,

I am a lover of the classic white wedding dress and I will be choosing exactly that when I find my perfect dress, but did you know that it was Queen Victoria who made the iconic white wedding dress so fashionable. Before that it was actually more common to be married in a a bold coloured gown or even just their Sunday best what ever it was that they could afford. 
White was actually considered a colour of mourning for French Queens.
In a lot of Asian cultures it is still common for a bride to be married in red, the traditional colour of good luck.

I thought it would be interesting to take a look at some celebrities that branched out and opted for a coloured gown rather than the normal white.

Dita Von Tease in the most out there but stunning wedding dress for her marriage to Marilyn Manson.

Jessica Beal sporting a perfect pink gown at her wedding to Justin Timberlake.

Gwen Stephani in her iconic ombre pink gown in the wedding to Gavin Rossdale.

Reese Witherspoon in her perfect pale pink gown for marriage to Jim Toth.

Liz Hurley sporting her Indian gown for the wedding to Arun Nayar.

Kaley Cuoco in her beautiful gown for wedding to husband Ryan Sweeting.

Elizabeth Taylor in a iconic 60s dress for the marriage to Richard Burton.

Avril Lavigne in a very rocker looking gown for her marriage to Chad Kroeger. 
Sometimes people just are made to be different and I think each coloured gown worn by each celebrity showed their personalities perfectly.

Would you ever consider a coloured wedding dress? 
If so what colour?

Take Care Dolls and Love!
