While traditional white wedding dresses may not yet be a thing of the past, a barrage of blush-, cream-, and café-au-lait-colored gowns are breathing new life into bridal wear. “Colored gowns are starting to become more mainstream, and modern brides are more than ready to take the leap into nontraditional tints,” says Lindsey Principi of Maddison Row. Still afraid to stray too far from tradition? Try a gown that layers lace over colored satin (like the Legends by Romona Keveza gown above) for the best of both worlds.
