Non-Traditional Wedding Gowns: Colorful Wedding Dresses for Westchester County Brides

White is traditional, but not required.

Time was, brides had only one color choice: white. White dresses, white diamond engagement rings. Now, bolder brides are ditching the standard wedding white and incorporating more color into their nuptials.

Did You Notice?

When Reese Witherspoon married agent Jim Toth this past spring, she walked down the aisle in a blush pink gown custom-designed by Monique Lhuillier. And, when Prince William finally popped the question to Kate Middleton, he did so with a dazzling blue sapphire ring (once Diana’s), which supposedly started a sapphire craze among the brides of London.
