Our Favorite Celebrities in Colorful Wedding Dresses
Traditionally, it was frowned upon if the bride wore anything other than white. Colored gowns are not just for second weddings anymore. Today’s brides however are more creative and original. They are daring and choosing other colors besides white to wear on their wedding day.
