Celebrities who wore unconventional wedding dresses

Here comes the bride, all dressed in… well, not white, that’s for sure. While we love a tulled-out ivory wedding gown, we’re not opposed to unconventional dresses in black, pink or even yellow — and sometimes we might even prefer it. Long gone are the days of white, white and more white. There are about a bajillion other colors and silhouettes out there that are a lot more interesting than your run-of-the-mill snow-colored ballgown.

While we hear Solange wore a whopping six (!!!) outfits in the entirety of her wedding to director Alan Ferguson in November 2014, nothing took the cake more than the gown she wore while taking her super-badass wedding photos with her family and bridesmaids. Not only did the dress, which was designed by Humberto Leon, cover her up to her neck, but it also had the coolest twist on a traditional train: a floor-length cape.

Instead of white, the Glee actress went nude (for her dress color, that is) when she tied the knot with Mumford & Sons member Winston Marshall in Morocco in October 2016. The sequined chiffon Valentino gown cost her $20,500, but judging from how good she looks, we'll say it was money well spent.

If you can't decide on your wedding gown, why not have the best of both worlds and choose two? That was the thought process of the older Delevingne sister, who sported a more traditional frock to her first wedding to James Cook in 2014 and an untraditional one when she wed him a second time. Plus, if you think Delevingne 's boho-floral Emilio Pucci dress was atypical, take a look at her maid of honor (and little sister) Cara Delevingne's badass white suit.

The 90210 star went to the complete opposite of the color wheel with a black V-neck halter gown by Vera Wang when she wed musician Josh Beech in 2013.

While her fiancé, professional tennis player Ryan Sweeting, sported an all-black tux, The Big Bang Theory actor also kept it untraditional with a strapless bubblegum-tinted wedding gown that can only be described as delicious. Though Cuoco, who wed Sweeting in the custom-made Vera Wang gown in December 2013, filed for divorce three years later, we think her wedding is still something to smile when she looks back on. (Because, come on, that dress!)

No shoes, no problem. Along with going barefoot at her wedding to Arrested Development actor David Cross in 2012, Tamblyn also sported a yellow (marigold, to be exact) wedding dress with a cream train in the back. "There's nothing really traditional about me," she told Us Weekly.

So long white, and hello frothy pink. Biel kept it untraditional with a dreamy Giambattista Valli gown at her wedding to Justin Timberlake in October 2012. While her hubby is one of the biggest names around, Biel def stole the show with her drool-worthy wedding dress.

Like her character on Sex and the City, SJP is always switching things up with her style. When she wed actor Matthew Broderick in May 1997, the actor opted to match her fiancé's black-tie tuxedo with a black Morgan le Fay wedding gown. While she admitted on Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live that she regretted the look, at least she got to sport two wedding gowns on screen as Carrie Bradshaw.

When the Arrested Development star walked down the aisle with now-wife Ellen DeGeneres in August 2008, she opted to go off-white — super-off — with a pale pink-tinted wedding gown designed by Zac Posen.

Ombré fans, this one's for you. While the former model's custom Christian Siriano gown looked pretty traditional up top, things got more interesting when you saw what was below. At the bottom, Hearst's dress flared out with the prettiest pink ombré tulle. She wore it when she wed television host Chris Hardwick in August 2016.

If you're looking to show some leg while keeping a traditional train, you might want to opt for The Hills star's super-adorable high-low wedding gown. Port wore the dress, designed by Mohammed Ashi, in November 2015 when she tied the knot to television producer Tim Rosenman, whom — fun fact — she met while filming the MTV reality series, which Rosenman was an associate producer for.
