Myth #1: Being a Bride Means Wearing White
Lots of brides these days wear dresses in off-white, ivory or even blush shades (hello, Reese Witherspoon!). But it's perfectly acceptable to do something completely different and opt for a gown (or a cocktail dress) that's a color you love. You can also add a dash of color to your bridal look by wearing a colorful shrug, bolero or satin belt.
