It might be traditional for the bride to wear a white wedding dress, but it wasn’t always the case.
In fact, before 1840, most brides would wear their Sunday best in any colour - it just depended on what they had in their wardrobes.
So we think it’s high time that brides brought back that ‘all things bright and beautiful’ vibe, ditching pure white gowns for something bold and full of personality.
And, if you’re not too sure about going TOO bright, you can keep things subtle.
It may just be a case of adding a little dip-dye to your hemline, a layer of patterned tulle, or the slightest hint of blush pink.
Whatever your heart desires, this bumper post is packed full of colourful inspiration - so there’s a hue here to suit every single bride.
