20 Dreamy Blue Wedding Dresses

Bend the rules with one of these non-white gowns.
by Andrea Fowler

Thinking about straying from the usual white wedding dress? We're all in favor. Some of our favorite dress designs feature offbeat bridal elements like bright multicolor details, edgy appliqués or sexy nude details. Wedding dress designers are getting on board too; expanding their collection to appeal to the modern bride with her eye on a light pink, blue or otherwise nontraditional wedding gown. 

To help you find your perfect style, we rounded up our 19  favorite blue wedding dresses from real brides and the runway (and the designers!).
