We're Blushing: 9 Pretty-In-Pink Wedding Gowns

Don't get us wrong — we're fans of the traditional white wedding dress. But, these days, there's way more wiggle room on what's considered a "proper" gown...and that goes for the color, too. Call it blush, call it champagne, but a pink wedding dress can be as beautiful as it is unexpected.
In the spirit of doing a little something different, we've rounded up nine stunning options for just about every style of wedding. From short to long, strapless to sleeved, these blush gowns make a strong case for thinking pink. Read on to see our picks.

And, if a dress just isn't your thing, may we suggest a Spanish lace and rose-gold ensemble? A corset and ball-gown skirt look sweet on the big day — and after the wedding, we know you can rock these separates, too.
