Do wedding dresses have to be white?

To put it simply, no, you do not have to wear white on your wedding day if you don't want to. And choosing not to wear white doesn't make you any less of a bride! Gone are the days when white was the only option for colored wedding dresses. Today's to-be-weds are breaking away from tradition and exploring a rainbow of wedding dress colors to make their big day even more special. "There's a tradition of wearing white that has been made popular through movies and television shows, but the color of your wedding dress has no bearing on the success of your marriage," says wedding planner Jove Meyer. "Wear what makes you feel fabulous—be it white, patterns, colors, long gown or short dresses." Your wedding is a chance to showcase your style and personality, and the right dress can do just that.

The world is your oyster when it comes to colorful wedding dresses. There are certain hues, though, that are predicted to dominate the colored wedding dress scene, adding a touch of uniqueness and personality to bridal fashion. Let's explore the popular wedding dress colors for 2024–2025 that are set to redefine the bridal landscape.

Blue Wedding Dresses

Ranging from soft, ethereal pastel shades to deep, regal navy tones, adding a little "something blue through your wedding dress is always a good idea (Then again, I may be biased; it's my favorite color.) Since the color is associated with loyalty, elegance and calm, blue wedding dresses make the perfect choice for a serene and sophisticated wedding atmosphere.

Pink Wedding Dresses

Soft and romantic, pink wedding dresses add a touch of femininity and grace and are one of the easiest wedding dress colors to come by. From soft blushes to barbiecore hot pink, these colored wedding gowns offer a unique and romantic twist to traditional bridal looks. We'd be tickled pink to see this hue worn for a romantic outdoor ceremony or a whimsical garden wedding.

Black Wedding Dresses

On the other end of the color aesthetic spectrum, there are black wedding dresses. These aren't just for the alternative bride, but also for the fashion-forward bride who wants to exhibit the epitome of chic sophistication. It sets a dramatic tone that exudes confidence and style.

The Best Colorful Wedding Dresses in Every Hue
