There are myriad factors that come into play when choosing your wedding gown—the dress silhouette, length, fabric… Oh my! So forgive us for throwing yet another consideration into the mix—we couldn’t help but wonder… Have you considered breaking the mold with a non-white gown?

Read on to see which other colors you can wear on your big day!

Nudes and Tans

The perfect in-between if you want to ditch all-white but prefer to keep with a classic neutral, a nude or tan dress will add just the right amount of warmth to your gown. When matched with your skin tone, these linings make your lace pop!

Pastels 

Pastel colors allow you to get the best of both worlds because you get to break away from white while wearing a hue that is just as soft and romantic (and technically, a pastel color is a tint which means it has white in it!).

Bellini

If a summer sorbet and a wedding dress got married, this is what you would get. It’s a warmer take on the blush, with golden undertones that make it perfect for a midsummer wedding.

Blushing Bride

It’s the epitome of romance and charm. Become a blushing bride (quite literally!) in a blush dress with feminine accents for a result that is unapologetically princess-like.

Vintage Rose

Vintage Rose is softer and more muted than it’s Blushing Bride counterpart, making it one of our most popular options!

Stone Grey

This moody, yet sophisticated-chic option is perfect for fall/winter weddings. Because grey is a neutral, it pairs well with almost all florals and bridesmaids dresses.

Blue Belle

First off, it’s your “something blue”—a clearly convenient aspect that’s impossible to ignore! But a light blue dress is also much more than that; it’s unexpected, collected, and awfully cool (like, winter-wedding-level cool).

Lilac

Torn between blush and light blue? You might just be a lilac kind of gal. Infuse your wedding look with this refined tint and say yes to all the spring-forward vibes it brings.

Orchid 

This purple doesn’t skimp on elegance or charm. This richer shade walks the fine line of femme and bold and it’s ideal if you want to make a stronger statement with your gown.

Black 

This one is for the gals who have always walked on the path less traveled. Bold, black elements on a wedding gown definitely bring the drama and demand attention.
