The decision about what you're going to wear for your big day can be tough, especially if you want something less traditional. But have you ever considered a coloured wedding dress? True, they're not exactly new—Elizabeth Taylor wore a yellow frock for her nuptials to Richard Burton back in 1964—but they can be a more exciting alternative to a white gown. So, what colours are okay for your big day? Well, anything, really. You shouldn't be dictated by trends or what other people think. Remember the moment is all about you.
However, there is one tiny snag when opting for this type of frock: There's a possibility of a guest turning up in the same look.
