Wedding Dresses: Nine Colourful Gowns To Prove You Don't Have To Wear White

Are you a bride-to-be who doesn't want to wear a white or ivory wedding dress?

Non-white wedding dresses are becoming a regular thing (Vera Wang's bridal collections have recently showcased stunning icy grey, blush pink, lavish red and smouldering black gowns) because for some, sticking with tradition just isn't important.

The best thing about choosing a coloured wedding dress? You don't necessarily have to shop in bridal boutiques to get one. Especially if you're just not the meringue ball-gown type.

Take Net-a-Porter, Harvey Nichols, Reiss, Whistles and Jaeger. All of these brands have endless styles to choose from whether you want something super understated (to then accessorise) or completely farfetched and fabulous.

You don't have to go designer, nor do you have to pay a small fortune on your look. Though, it is ALL about you and you'll want to remember feeling absolutely incredible in said dress for the rest of your life (no pressure).

And then there's the vintage option. If you're looking for something really glamorous (flapper-girl glitz, sparkle, sequin) or even a floor-length, breathtakingly classic ensemble - look to previous decades for inspiration.

Try using MyDaily's Find Me Vintage tool to locate a vintage store near you. London's Lucy in Disguise and William Vintage have some to-die-for styles.

Here are just a few of the best colourful wedding dress styles out there. Take your time choosing, go and try on and definitely make sure there's a glass of champagne to hand.
