Traditional wedding dresses are all good and nice, but they’re getting a bit old, aren’t they? Aren’t people sick of wearing long white gowns to their wedding and looking like any other bride in the best case scenario and a puffy marshmallow in the worst? We’re glad to see that there are 10 celebrity brides who definitely agree with us. These 10 ladies said “no” to tradition and instead wore very unconventional dresses on their special day. Are you intrigued? Then go ahead and take a look.
1. Solange Knowles
Why even wear a dress if you can wear a gorgeous jumpsuit and a cape and look freaking regal. Solange Knowles wedding outfit was made by Humberto Leon for Kenzo, and all we can say is she absolutely slayed.
2. Keira Knightley
Keira Knightley didn’t even bother buying a special dress for the wedding. Why spend a fortune for something you’re only going to wear once? Instead she wore a lovely Chanel dress that she’s been seen in multiple times before. She did look absolutely lovely and chill in it. According to Keira it was her “something old” and she just wanted to wear something she had had fun in several times in the past.
3. Kaley Cuoco
Kaley Cuoco decided to be extra girly and wore a petal pink strapless dress by Vera Wang. It definitely was eye-catching and looked hella fun. After all, when in doubt, wear pink. It’ll make a statement and look adorable at the same time.
4. Jessica Biel
Jessica Biel also went for the pink. But hers was more of a frothy pink. Her dress, designed by Giambattista Valli looked very feminine and romantic. Jessica says she was never really into white dresses, so when the designer suggested pink she took a leap of faith and the result was better than she could’ve expected.
5. Cynthia Nixon
Few people think of green when choosing a wedding dress but Cynthia Nixon proved that it’s a valid option. She didn’t really want to wear a wedding dress, she was thinking more along the lines of “Don’t think of me as a bride. Think of me as a grown-up woman who needs a dress to get married in.” And since she was so used to playing the red-haired Miranda on Sex and the city, she knew green would look good on her, so she just went with green. We’ve got to admit she did look amazing in that green dress.
6. Julianne Moore
Julianne Moore is also famous for being a redhead, but for her wedding dress she chose to wear a simple slim pale lavender dress by Prada. It doesn’t scream “wedding” or “bride”, but it looks very classy and sophisticated, which is perfect for a lovely woman like Julianne.
7. Poppy Delevingne
Poppy Delevingne actually got to do both. She wore a white wedding dress for her London wedding ceremony, but when she went to celebrate the second part of her wedding in Marrakesh she chose an incredible gown by Emilio Pucci that was covered in intricate flower embellishments in yellow and pink. It was the most amazing combination of hippy and classy.
8. Sofia Coppola
Sofia Coppola is a woman of impeccable taste and she wasn’t going to wear a poofy white dress for her wedding. Instead she went with a lovely lavender gown by Azzedine Alaïa. Clearly she knew what she was doing, cause she looked like the picture of elegance and grace in it.
9. Shenae Grimes
Shenae Grimes made every rock girl’s dream come true by wearing black to her wedding. Her Vera Wang dress with a V-neck cut, distressed organza and multi layered crinkle skirt looked badass and so did she. And let’s be real, who wouldn’t want to look badass at their wedding?
10. Pamela Anderson
Unlike the rest of the ladies on this list, Pamela Anderson didn’t even bother by choosing a non-traditional dress. She just chose not to wear a dress at all and instead wore a white bikini for her beach wedding ceremony and a captain’s hat. That’s Pamela Anderson for you!
