Wedding Dresses That Aren’t White

When ModEmployees Alyssa, Styling Manager (left), and Danielle, Photo Director (right), recently got married, they both wound up opting for wedding dresses that aren’t the traditional snowy white hue. That got us thinking — who says your wedding dress can’t be black or pink anyway?


Check out our personality-packed picks for both brides who want to retain tenets of tradition, and those who want to march down the aisle to the beat of their very own drum.

    I love the non-traditional wedding dress colors .. off white, peach, pink, cream – – but not black, not even if it’s your “thing” not even if you’re goth .. 😛

    I got married in red – although not #marriedinmodcloth (in my defence, I hadn’t discovered you at the time and I’ve done plenty in Modcloth since!) x

    I actually eloped and ended up wearing a Little Black Dress. We are doing a vow renewal next year (6 years) and I plan on wearing non-white to it as well. Maybe I’ll stick with MY tradition and wear black again! 🙂
