Every wedding that you've attended or seen photos of, more than likely had a bride in a traditional white gown. Yes, it's tradition and yes, all these ladies look stunning, but it's 2017.
You can stick to the rules if you want, but keep in mind, they don't necessarily have to be followed. Many brides out there have walked down the aisle in the most non-traditional of wedding dresses and they all looked equally stunning.
