Traditionally, brides wear white on their wedding day, but there is no rule saying that your wedding dress must be white. In recent years, several celebrities have worn wedding dresses in non-traditional colors. For example, Jessica Biel wore a light pink wedding dress, Amber Tamblyn got married in yellow, and Avril Lavigne wore black.  Other celebrity brides have also gone the non-traditional route when it comes to their wedding dress color. If you are considering wearing a non-traditional wedding dress color for your ballroom wedding, there are three questions you will want to ask yourself.

What Color Do I Want to Wear?

If you have already started considering wearing a non-white wedding dress, you have likely also considered colors. Really bright or dark colors will stand out more, but you may not feel like you are wearing a wedding dress. That’s fine if that’s the look you want to achieve. If you are going for a traditional wedding dress look with a bit of a twist, a light blue, yellow, or pink might be a better choice.

Will This Cause an Argument?

If you come from a conservative, traditionalist family, not wearing white could cause some arguments. You may want to consider if it’s worth the potential argument. You may be able to come to a compromise by wearing a lighter colored dress, which may even appear white in certain lighting.

Will I Regret It?

This is perhaps the most important question. If you have only recently started considering non-white dresses and you dreamed of a beautiful white wedding dress growing up, you may want to consider if you will later regret not going with the traditional white dress. Trying on several dresses may help you to make this decision. When in doubt, go with a dress that you know you will not regret wearing.
