Your wedding day is supposed to be one of the most important and more special days of your life, but there are certain expectations that come with saying “I do.” Over the course of history, wedding traditions have become a huge part of the planning process. The bride always has to wear something old, something borrowed, and something blue. The bride and groom are not allowed to see each other before the ceremony. Otherwise, they risk an unhappy marriage. The groom has to carry his bride over the threshold, and so much more. However, it seems as though many celebs are ditching one particular wedding tradition. These are the celebs that didn’t wear white on their wedding day.
Sarah Jessica Parker
SJP is known for her fashion sense. After all, she’s Carrie Bradshaw! While we’ve seen her tie the knot in SATC while wearing a gorgeous ivory gown, it seems as though she decided to go for something a little different on her own wedding day. When Sarah married Matthew Broderick in 1997, she opted for a black Giambattista Valli gown. Yes, she wore a black wedding dress! Of course, Sarah Jessica Parker could pull anything off, so it looked fabulous.
When Alison Pill married Joshua Leonard in 2015, they opted for a more casual affair. Instead of planning an event with frills and whistles, they decided to celebrate what the day was really about; their love. Because of this, Allison also wanted to wear something that would show off her personality and her vibrancy. So, she walked down the aisle in a bright yellow gown that perfectly complemented her hair and her bright smile.
Shenae Grimes is known for her role as Annie in the modern remake of 90210, and the actress has always played preppy and sweet characters. However, it seems as though she went for something completely different on her wedding day in 2013. When this brunette beauty tied the knot to Josh Beech in 2013, she opted for a black and grey number. This beautiful halter gown featured a black bodice with black and grey tulle snaking down the bottom.
Julianne Moore is arguably one of the most famous women in the world, and she could plan an extravagant and expensive wedding if she wanted to. However, when she married Bart Freundlich in 2003, they decided to keep things a bit more straightforward. While Bart and their son wore casual beige suits, Julianne opted for a lilac slip dress and one single flower in her hands.
You may know that Kaley Cuoco got married for the second time in 2018, but it’s her first wedding that really got everyone talking. Instead of wearing a white gown, Kaley married Ryan Sweeting in a sweet pink dress. This Vera Wang number was the talk of the wedding because it was both figure-hugging and floaty. With slightly tousled hair and impeccable makeup, Kaley Cuoco looked like a blushing bride.
So, it turns out that you don’t always have to wear a white wedding dress. After all, these celebs didn’t.
