As the old adage goes, rules were made to be broken. Though cliché, this saying rings true for a number of seemingly rigid wedding traditions. In reality, these rules are more guidelines than anything else.

Modern brides know they have many more options, such as ivory, blush, or even a patterned gown. Still in search of your “something blue”? Make it your dress, like the stunning Oscar de la Renta number pictured below. In a fusion of traditional lace and a contemporary color and silhouette, this choice has the potential to strike many a bride’s fancy.
