Old-School Rule: Your wedding dress has to be white.

The New Twist: You don't have to go all out -- you could still wear a white or ivory dress -- but don't be afraid to add a pop of color with a sash, cardigan, pair of shoes or piece of jewelry. You could also do a lightly colored skirt with a white or ivory overlay for a barely there hint of color. Truly brave? Champagne, black, blush and pastel-hued dresses in mint, lavender or cornflower blue are on trend right now, adding an understated uniqueness to your ensemble.
