5 Celebrities Who Wore Nontraditional Wedding Gowns

Continuing on the theme of nontraditional wedding gowns, we thought it would be fun to take a look at some celebrities who turned up on their big days in something a little unexpected. Last month, we talked about how white wedding dresses first rose to popularity after Queen Victoria’s marriage to Albert of Saxe-Coburg. These celebrities didn’t feel the need to become a part of that fad:

  1. Sarah Jessica Parker married longtime love Matthew Broderick in 1997. But instead of white, Parker wore a black non-traditional gown. She says she didn’t want to bring attention to the wedding, but today regrets the decision. “I’d wear a proper wedding dress [if we ever renew our vows,” she said. “Like I should have worn that day.” 

  2. Gwen Stefani married Gavin Rossdale in 2002 wearing a pink and white ombre dress. And unlike Parker, Stefani did it just to be different and “over the top.” But that’s no surprise coming from the pop star. 

  3. Ellen Pompeo wed hubby Chris Ivery in 2007 wearing a black Yves Saint Laurent cocktail frock. The ceremony took place at New York City Hall with only Mayor Bloomberg in attendance. 

  4. Amber Tamblyn and comedian David Cross got married in 2012, with Tamblyn sporting a bright yellow lacy wedding dress. The dress color complemented the wooded location of the ceremony perfectly, a low-key wedding to be sure.

  5. Dita Von Teese married Marilyn Manson in 2005 wearing a royal purple Vivienne Westwood gown. Made of an ample amount of taffeta, Von Teese was truly a sight to remember.
