Here comes the bride, all dressed in…well, not white, that’s for sure. While we love a tulled-out ivory wedding gown, we’re not opposed to unconventional dresses in black, pink, or even yellow—and sometimes we might even prefer it. Long are the days of white, white, and more white. There are about a bajillion other colors and silhouettes out there that are a lot more interesting than your run-of-the-mill snow-colored ballgown.
No shade if you like going the traditional route (we all do from the time to time), but for the wild brides out there looking to experiment, you might want to draw inspiration from these 12 celebrity brides who wore uber-unconventional wedding dresses while still stunning down the aisle. See them all, ahead.
What do you expect? Of course the "Complicated" singer was going to wear black to her wedding. The punk-pop star took her wedding's gothic theme to an entirely new level when she walked down the aisle in a stunning black Monique Lhuiller gown to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger in July 2013. Though the couple split a year later, at least Lavigne kept it true to her wedding style.

While we hear Solange wore a whopping six (!!!) outfits in the entirety of her wedding to director Alan Ferguson in November 2014, nothing took the cake more than the gown she wore while taking her super-badass wedding photos with her family and bridesmaids. Not only did the dress, which was designed by Humberto Leon, cover her up to her neck, but it also had the coolest twist on a traditional train: a floor-length cape.

Instead of white, the "Glee" actress went nude (for her dress color, that is) when she tied the knot with Mumford & Sons member Winston Marshall in Morocco in October 2016. The sequined chiffon Valentino gown cost her $20,500, but judging from how good she looks, we'll say money well spent.

If you can't decide on your wedding gown, why not have the best of both worlds and choose two? That was the thought process of the older Delevingne sister who sported a more traditional frock to her first wedding to James Cook in 2014 and an untraditional one when she wed him a second time. Plus, if you think Poppy's boho-floral Emilio Pucci dress was atypical, take a look at her made-of-honor (and little sister) Cara Delevingne's badass white suit.

The "90210" star went to the completely opposite of the color wheel with a black V-neck halter gown by Vera Wang when she wed musician Josh Beech in 2013.
While her fiance, professional tennis player Ryan Sweeting, sported an all-black tux, "The Big Bang Theory" actress also kept it untraditional with a strapless bubblegum-tinted wedding gown that can only be described as delicious. Though the actress, who wed Sweeting in the custom-made Vera Wang gown in December 2013, filed for divorce three years later, we think her wedding is still something to smile back on. (Because, come on, that dress!)
No shoes, no problem. Along with going barefoot at her wedding to "Arrested Development" actor David Cross in 2012, Tamblyn also sported a yellow (marigold, to be exact) wedding dress with a cream train in the back. "There's nothing really traditional about me," she told Us Weekly.

On wedding day, we wear pink. So long white and hello frothy-pink. Biel kept it untraditional with a dreamy Giambattista Valli gown at her wedding to Justin Timberlake in October 2012. While her hubby is one of the biggest names around, Biel def stole the show with her drool-worthy wedding dress.

Sarah Jessica Parker
Like her character on "Sex and the City," SJP is always switching things up with her style. When she wed actor Matthew Broderick in May 1997, the actress opted to match her fiance's black black-tie tuxedo with a black Morgan Le Fay wedding gown. While she admitted on Andy Cohen's "Watch What Happens Live" that she regretted the look, at least she got to sport two wedding gowns on-screen as Carrie Bradshaw.

Portia de Rossi
When the "Arrested Development" star walked down the aisle with now-wife Ellen DeGeneres in August 2008, she opted to go off-white—super off—with a pale pink-tinted wedding gown designed by Zac Posen.

Ombre fans, this one's for you. While the former model's custom Christian Siriano gown looked pretty traditional up top, things got more interesting when you saw what was below. At the bottom, Hearst's dress flared out with the prettiest pink ombre tool. She wore it when she wed television host Chris Hardwick in August 2016.

If you're looking to show some leg while keeping a traditional train, you might want to opt for "The Hills" star's super-adorable high-low wedding gown. Port wore the dress, designed by Mohammed Ashi, in November 2015 when she tied the knot to television producer Tim Rosenmann, who—fun fact—she met while filming the MTV reality series, which Rosenmann was an associate producer for.
