You’re getting married (congratulations!), you don’t want a traditional white gown and you want to be something of a maverick statement on your big day. So you’ve decided to get hitched in a pink wedding dress. One thing’s for sure—you’ll be in good—if limited—company. A sprinkling of stylish celebrities who have set the bar for pink as an off-beat but memorable bridal colour instantly springs to mind. First and foremost: Gwen Stefani, who dazzled in a showstopping couture gown by John Galliano, which was sprayed bright pink along the hem and train. She loved the dress so much she wore it twice to marry now ex-husband Gavin Rossdale in 2002 (once for the church ceremony in London and two weeks later in Los Angeles to renew their vows). It was subsequently exhibited in the Victoria & Albert Museum in 2014.

Actresses Anne Hathaway and Jessica Biel followed suit, both choosing softer, more sugary tones of pink in custom-made creations by their go-to couturiers, Valentino and Giambattista Valli, respectively. There’s no denying that pink wedding dresses are still niche and harder to come by, but there is a surprising number of off-the-peg options—you just need to know where to look. And this is the bit where we tell you we’ve done the looking for you, so browse through the instantly shoppable pink wedding dresses in the gallery below.
