White wedding? Forget it!
White has become the norm for wedding dresses, but it wasn’t until Queen Victoria donned a pure white gown in 1840 that the tradition began. Not everyone wants to stick to the status quo when it comes to their big day, and prefer to express themselves with color as well as style on the happiest day of their lives. These celebrities took inspiration from the rainbow as they chose not to wear white on their wedding day…
The Hollywood icon married three times in her life and each wedding dressed was drastically different. When 16-year-old Marilyn wed her childhood sweetheart, Dougherty, in 1942, she chose the traditional white dress, but for her second marriage was to baseball player Joe DiMaggio, she went for something totally different. Monroe attended the San Francisco courthouse wedding in 1953, wearing a black jacket with a white fur collar and a pencil skirt. For her final wedding to Arthur Miller, she wore a mid-length, figure-hugging gown with chin-length veil.
When Elizabeth Taylor married her ‘Cleopatra’ co-star Richard Burton for the first of two times in Spring 1964, Elizabeth proved she was ahead of her time in a buttercup yellow, knee-length number. The sunny look was designed by Irene Sharaff and was set off by an elaborate ponytail by Alexandre de Paris laced with orange blossom. The dress wasn’t the only step away from tradition, the couple had not yet selected an engagement ring for Taylor, so she wore a brooch given to her by her sweetheart.
Sarah Jessica Parker
Sarah Jessica Parker’s character in ‘Sex and the City’, Carrie Bradshaw is a certified fashionista and it seems the fashion inspiration rubbed off on SJP for her wedding. When she married Matthew Broderick in 1997, she ruffled some feathers in a black Morgane Le Fay ruffled gown. On their 20th wedding anniversary in 2017, the actress shared a photo of their big day on Instagram.
Julianne Moore kept it simple for her 2003 nuptials to director Bart Freundlich, but not when it came to color. The ‘Still Alice’ star opted for a stunning purple Prada number and posed with her daughter Liv, who was just a baby at the time.
Kristen Bell didn’t waste her hard-earned cash on a thousand-dollar wedding dress she would only wear once. In fact, the entire wedding cost the Hollywood couple a grand total of $147, the actress told The Knot. When she tied the knot with Dax Shephard at a Los Angeles court house in 2013, Bell kept it low-key in a simple black dress with a chunky necklace. The ‘Bad Moms’ star shared a touching congratulations to her hubby on his 14-year sobriety birthday along with a throwback picture of their wedding.
The model-turned-actress broke the internet when she got hitched to Sebastian Bear-McClard in a yellow two-piece suit in a New York City courthouse in 2018. Even more shockingly, the bold outfit choice was not an eye-wateringly expensive designer suit, but from high-street retailer, Zara. About her choice, Ratajkowski said: “I never loved the idea of wearing white for a wedding because I'm not a pure woman. I'm a woman with a lot of character and experience and life. I also just loved the idea of a suit, especially at City Hall because it's like you're taking care of business.”
Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra said their “I dos” their 2018 wedding stretched out over multiple days to respect their different cultural backgrounds. While the Indian star did have a white wedding dress for her Christian ceremony, it was her multi-coloured dress and heirloom jewellery by Indian designer Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla for the pre-wedding Mehendi which was the most eye-catching. Her red lehenga choli by Sabyasachi worn at their second, Hindu wedding ceremony was another stunning, colorful choice.
The ‘Candy’ singer was a tasteful vision in pink in her pale rose tulle Rodarte gown for her wedding to musician Taylor Goldsmith in 2018. In their private ceremony, Moore matched the beautiful gown with a pink veil and we’re so happy she shared pictures of the happy day with us on Instagram later.
The No Doubt star said: "Wow Vera! Thank you so much for the gorgeous flowers, but the dress ... like, it was literally a dream come true to be able to work with you and get married to Blake in your gown. I love you so much. Thank you!"
Which A-list actors played your favorite royal roles?
Netflix has released the first look of Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana and Dominic West as Prince Charles in the fifth season of 'The Crown,' which explores those fraught early '90s. Fans on Twitter are unsure about the casting of West as the Prince, however, with many claiming West is just much too attractive for Charles. West, who recently starred in 'The Pursuit of Love,' takes over the role from Josh O’Connor, and we'll just have to wait and see if he was the right choice to fill those royal shoes. From 'The Crown' to hit movies, viewers sure can't seem to get enough of their royals. Indeed, members of the British royal family in particular have been brought to the screen many times.
Gwen also shared a video which seemed to show one of her wedding dresses stored in a large white box with the words "My Wedding Gown" inscribed at the top and "Fragile. Handle with Care" on the side.
Wang's two creations were inspired by Gwen's personality and music.
The wedding dress that the 'Hollaback Girl' hitmaker wore on her big day when she said "I do" was a custom lily-white silk georgette gown with a plunging neckline, cut away back, fitted bodice and high low hand tumbled tulle skirt.
The dress that Gwen wore at her reception was a lily-white Italian silk crepe and hand tumbled tulle strapless mini-dress which featured a pair of hand-sewn love birds symbolising Gwen and Blake's love for one another.
Gwen and Blake, 45, tied the knot in a chapel set up in the back garden on the country singer's Oklahoma ranch on July 3 in front of 40 of their closest friends and family members, including her sons Kingston, 15, Zuma, 12, and Apollo, seven, who she shares with her ex-husband Gavin Rossdale.
