Though most brides will have already made up their mind about color -- white -- have you considered other colorful possibilities? Here we explore some unique and beautiful dresses that brides have chosen!

Blue 

Representing the sea and sky, blue is a unique color choice in comparison to the usually snow white bridal attire. The color is often associated with feelings of calm and relaxation. Often said to be the most expensive pigment back in the day because of how difficult it was to create the color, it gives dresses a very royal and unique feel.

Pink

The “cute” variation of the bolder color red, pink is often seen as softer and more gentle. The color brings out the youthfulness of the bride and gives a princess feel. This gentle hue is great for those looking for something a little different to the traditional white, but who don't want anything too intense.
