Colorful Wedding Dresses & Funny Invitations

Wedding season has arrived in India and my high school BFF is getting married in less than a month's time! Indian wedding outfits are always traditional and in bright colors (predominantly red or magenta) but when it comes to the rest of the world,  its mostly white wedding gowns. White will forever be classic and beautiful, but there's something undeniable about the appeal of an unexpected hue in a sea of ivory. If you want to be perfectly bridal while injecting your personality and individual style to your wedding, the best way to do it is with a colored wedding dress. It can also become a wedding centerpiece and dictate the entire style and color palette of your wedding.

I'm not the only one who thinks so, bridal fashion guru Vera Wang's Fall 2014 wedding dress collection had vivid shades of grapefruit, fuchsia, and lilac. Even celebrities like Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Biel, Gwen Stefani, Avril Lavigne, Anne Hathaway, Elizabeth Taylor and other favorite famous brides wore colorful wedding dresses. Shades like blush pink, mint green and baby blue are perfect for a fresh and romantic look while shades like champagne, gunmetal and wine give a sophisticated and luxurious look.

Love the idea of a wedding dress that's bold on color? Here are some beautiful wedding dresses in living color I loved on Weddingbasa.com, a site that specializes in bridesmaid dresses, wedding party dresses, special occasion, plus size dresses, cocktail dresses, homecoming and many more. Since you all loved my pink dress outfit post so much, I coincidentally ended up picking a few pink gowns!

This beautiful chiffon wedding dress has a diamante detailing on the neckline

I love the one shouldered detail on this coral pink wedding gown

The cowl neck back of this wedding dress is just so elegant

Similar to the first one, but I like this one better as it cinches the waist

Weddingbasa has loads of fabric and color options for every single dress on their site and even show you a swatch of the color you choose in each fabric before you place an order, so its a great way to determine what the dress would look like, so if you are on the lookout for a unique and stunning dress for a wedding or special occasion, you must check it out. I also found some really funny, innovative and creative wedding announcements and invitations -

Here's an invite inspired from the popular sitcom How I Met Your Mother
Meme lovers will totally relate to this one!

Here's a cynical wedding announcement, which my BFF and I kinda relate to!
This adorable wedding announcement is just perfect for dog lovers!
Geeky gamers like me would love a Save the Date announcement like this one!
Here's a candid mugshot with a Save the date announcement
Hollywood buffs and noir cinema lovers, this Sin City style announcement is just for you

So, do you like the idea of a colored wedding dress? Which dress and which invite do you like the most? Let me know in your comments below!

  15. All the pink gowns you chose are beautiful but for weddings, I love the 1st and last ones as the ones in between looks more like evening gowns. The wedding invitations are so cute. I like the doggie and mugshots ones.

  21. I like all the invitations, but the last one is totally my style :-). As for the color of a wedding dress, I still like a white or off-white dress the most, but these wedding dresses are lovely too (the one with the open cowl back would go perfectly with the invitation I like the most, very old Hollywood :-) ). x
