Colourful wedding dresses can be as subtle, or as bold and bright as you like, and we have a gorgeous selection to show you.

Ball gown wedding dresses are a shape that will always make a statement and this design is no exception. The pale blue colour in this design by Elio Abou Fayssal is crisp and stylish, and we adore the sheer bodice. This will give style savvy brides a high fashion wedding style that is to die for.

Lace and tulle are a match made in heaven on this stunning red fishtail wedding dress from Pronovias. The neckline is so delicately designed and gives a really feminine feel with the soft lace pattern. You wouldn’t need much accessorising with this dress as its beauty really does speak for itself.

Looking for a dress fit for royalty? If so, this breath-taking gown by Paolo Sebastian definitely fits the bill. As if the dress itself wasn’t gorgeous enough with all its sparkly detail, the designer has added a Snow White style cape which is full of enchanting vibes and glamorous detailing - the perfect disney wedding dress. This would be the perfect choice for a winter wedding and you could even sport two looks: cape by day and then the dress alone by evening for a more relaxed feel.

What a stunning shade of deep purple! A delightful gown from Karen George with feminine fringing on the hem, this is such an elegant wedding dress. It’s so perfect for brides who want a more gothic wedding look, especially paired with a dark lace veil and some chunky accessories.

We couldn’t stop talking about this incredible tulle gown when we set eyes on it. It really was love at first sight. The dreamy green colour is the perfect shade for the material and we can’t get enough of the pastel floral embellishment on the bodice. The deep plunging neckline is incredibly flattering and we envy any bride who gets to walk down the aisle in this design.

Modern brides will absolutely love this bold pair from Rami Kadi. We can’t decide which colour we love more, the racy blue and yellow combo or the warmer oranges and browns. Both designs are equal in style and will create such a unique bridal look.

This pink wedding dress is the epitome of beauty. Long sleeved wedding dresses have a certain elegance about them and this dress carries this same theme with its sheer sleeves and neckline. The shape is gorgeous and would look so flattering on any bride lucky enough to wear it on her wedding day.

If you want a wedding dress that has loads of character and summery vibes, then this design by Heidi Elnora could be the one for you. The beautiful neckline and A-line skirt balance each other out perfectly – such a girly gown. We could picture this worn with pink bridesmaid dresses and some feminine rose bouquets.

Pretty in purple? This dress definitely is. The lilac shade is exquisite, and don’t even get us started on the illusion neckline. A summer wedding could be completely brought to life with a gown as beautiful as this.

Brides looking for a high fashion look on their wedding day will fall head over heels for this feathered fishtail wedding dress. The kimono style top half is so unique and we absolutely love the miss-match of patterns and textures. It works so well in this rose gold blush colour and is so striking.

Elegance oozes from this royal blue lace wedding dress. The fit and flare shape is so pleasing to the eye and the subtle texture on the tulle skirt is a fabulous finishing touch. The longer half sleeve is sophisticated and classy – just how we like it.

Anyone looking for a ball gown wedding dress with a twist need to see this insane design. The classic shape and style is totally brought to life with the quirky applique detailing. The funky shapes and pictures added remind us of the iconic dress that Angelina Jolie wore for her wedding – so lush.

Floral finishing touches are everything at spring weddings and what better way to bring the feminine flower theme into your wedding than in your wedding dress. This sensational design is extra playful with its sheer skirt and ombre applique detail.

If you're having a winter wedding, you need a true winter wedding dress to mark the occasion and we couldn't think of one better than this eye-catching design with unique waterfall detailing on its side. The deep V-neck and strapless style leaves lots of room for accessorising which is always a bonus for brides who love their jewellery.

Glamorous weddings wouldn’t be complete without a dress like this. A glitzy gold design is what every dazzling bride needs to wow her guests and her partner on the big day. The unique shape and cape sleeves are so striking.

Having a colourful wedding dress doesn’t have to mean boldness. This super subtle dress couldn’t be more stunning and its light colouring in the skirt is more than enough to complete this design. We love the gorgeous sheer bodice with bird detailing, it’s so cute.

Here at hitched, we don’t think we’ve ever seen a more regal, breath-taking gown than this one. The exquisite design is unbeatable in so many of its elements and the rich gold colour couldn’t be more suitable. The cathedral length train is what makes this gown so royal – it needs to be embraced by a true princess bride.

What a gorgeous silhouette this dress gives! The long bodice and full skirt is everything we could have wished for and more. Making this design in a pale pink colour was genius as it really brings out the texture in the skirt but is still soft enough for a feminine look.

This tea length wedding dress is so gorgeous we have been struggling to find the words. The high neck and cap sleeves, alongside the slightly dropped back hem gives this emerald green beauty the modern twist it needs to impress 21st century brides. Any bride having a vintage wedding who wants to add some sparkle to the day will adore this design.

Floral wedding dresses look so gorgeous with some colour on them and this patterned design by Amy Mair is no exception. The grace and cuteness it has is unquestionable and we would love to see it worn with a braided wedding hairstyle and some floral accessories to really embrace the summer wedding look.

Taffeta is such a gorgeous material – the gorgeous shine of it really embraces the deep, rich colour and the floral spaghetti straps are a stunning addition. We love the shape as it really enhances the waist area, attracting the eye to the smallest part of the body and creating a desirable silhouette.

This blue and silver heavily laced dress is a dress that is full of class. Its high end look is modest and flattering all at the same time and we love the rounded neckline, it really gives it a feminine edge. This design could be your something blue, and something new.

After bringing you the rose gold wedding guide, there was no way we could deprive you of this incredible illusion neckline design. The layered skirt is totally unique and nothing can beat the rose gold trimming that covers every inch and detail of the dress. Planning a glamorous wedding?

This colourful wedding dress has detail that almost resembles the beauty of tapestry and we love it for that. Its individuality is something that brides who want to surprise their guests will love and the shape is stunning as well. The blue shade can fit into a winter wedding for its tone, but also a summer wedding for its cutesy patterning which gives you no excuse not to get it!

We have been obsessing over this unusual wedding dress for far too long now. Since the moment we set eyes on it we couldn’t switch off. Feathered wedding dresses are a new trend which modern brides are loving and we can totally see why. The sheer bodice is super sexy and the shape is so fashionable. The warm rust colour is perfect for showing off every ounce of incredible detail in this design and we need it, now.

Stunning and unique, this baby blue design really is something special. The cape detail is so elegant and also makes for a really nice veil alternative for brides who want some sort of sheer accessory but are opting for no headwear. The multi-coloured detail has stolen our hearts completely and all it needs is a gorgeous wedding up-do to complete the look.

Sparkles are a wedding dress’s best friend, we all know that… But sparkles in an ombre pattern on a wedding dress just takes style to a whole new level. This A-line style is incredible in every way. It will totally dazzle your guests and have you feeling like the most important woman in the world on your wedding day, which is exactly how you should be feeling. There is no better way to embrace colour in your wedding dress than with this plush gown.
