Breaking the rules on white

Rules were made to be broken right? Well I think so and I love these brides who agree.

The white dress is a symbol of all that is pure and chaste and whilst the tradition and symbolism is non-negotiable for some brides, there is a growing trend of brides who are straying. With the range from the subtle off-white to the ‘knock ’em dead’ orange, I have put together some of my favourite  non-white wearing brides to inspire.

Some of my all time favourite weddings are those where the bride is wearing her most coveted designer dress because ‘why the hell not?’ and like my love for non-bridal shoes, I love the non-bridal dress attitude. It’s not like we mere mortals get to grace the red carpet in show-stopping frocks so why not treat your day as the red carpet. If bridal isn’t doing it for you then, ‘why the hell not hey?’

Bridal or not, this is a collection of stunning dresses.

Would you break the white rule on your wedding day?
