Show off your true colors with these dazzling rainbow wedding dresses, perfect for the modern soonlywed! From subtle hints of color to full-on rainbows, find the perfect dress to make a statement at your wedding.
I love seeing more and more soonlyweds opt for colorful wedding dresses, like Melanie's ombre pink and orange dress, Elaine's rose-covered dress, and Jill's bright pink wedding dress. The age-old “rule” about having to wear white only applies if you want it to, and if you're looking to make a statement, rainbow wedding dresses will certainly add a wow factor to any celebration.
Whether your style is bohemian, decadent glam , or a classic romantic, there's a rainbow dress out there that's perfect for you. Not only are rainbow dresses visually stunning, but they also carry a deeper meaning with a nod to Pride. And what better time to celebrate #loveislove than at your wedding?!
