Topic: wedding gowns
Remember when we (very facetiously) declared that white wedding gowns were for basic bitches this year? That instead, the season’s fashion forward brides would be wearing baby pinks, pastel blues, dove grays and… other stuff?

The Spring 2014 bridal collections have shown and the big surprise is… more nontraditional wedding dresses. We see this pretty regularly (dove gray, pale pink, mint green and the like), but it’s still always a surprise how polarizing it is. We’re of the opinion that no woman should feel required to wear a long white dress (or, uh, get married, for that matter) but the sight of a nonwhite gown sends others into irrational frenzy.
So, for those of you interested in/horrified by nonwhite gowns or other variously nontraditional wedding dresses, here are the latest from the Spring runways, featuring Vera Wang, Marchesa, Monique Lhuillier and more. More

Post your own theories in the comments if you like, then click over to Refinery 29 to see if either of us is right (as well as the rest of the photos). More
