Did you know that wedding dresses were not originally white? For many years, blue was actually considered the purest of all the colors and was favored by ladies walking down the aisle. Things started to change in 1840 when Queen Victoria ditched the traditional blue and decided to wear white instead, leading to a fashion revolution that continues today. After coming across that random fact online I started checking out colored wedding dresses for fun, which lead me to the realization that so many celebs have actually walked down the isle in colored wedding dresses, more specifically pink ones! While I don’t think I would dare to wear pink on my big day it was still fun to check out the pink dresses.
Gwen Stefani was one of the first celebrities to walk down the isle in a pink wedding dress, sporting this one of a kind ombre creation by John Galliano. I don’t know if I would pick this dress, but the hot pink definitely gave her otherwise traditional gown a dash of rock n’ roll when she married Gavin Rossdale in 2002.
Before Gwen walked down the isle in pink, there was of course Sharon Stone who wore this Vera Wang wedding dress. Though Sharon certainly wasn’t the first starlet to ask the designer for a wedding gown, she was the first to don the pink. Vera Wang continues to provide brides with pink creations available at her store, as well as in her White diffusion available at David’s Bridal.
American Sweetheart Reese Witherspoon has always been spot on with her fashion choices, and the wedding dress she chose to wear when marrying Jim Toth was no exception. A pale but evident pink, which added some girly rosiness to her fair features while still giving her a classic look.
Of course, a post on pink wedding dresses just wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the extra girly Giambattista Valli gown worn by my fave Jessica Biel when marrying Justin Timberlake. While there were many aspects that were oh-so-right about this garment, we love the fact that the addition of pink was able to add a playfully contemporary look to a voluminous gown that might have otherwise seem prim.
I feel like it was totally out of character for Jess to wear pink but I love that she took the risk. After all, your wedding day is all about you so I love that these ladies owned it! So, are you a fan of non-white wedding dresses? Let me know in the comment section below!
