See Amber Tamblyn's Lacy Yellow Wedding Gown

Here comes the bride … in a burst of color.

When Amber Tamblyn and David Cross exchanged vows on Saturday, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants actress opted for a non-traditional wedding dress.

Instead of the customary white frock most brides wear, Tamblyn, 29, wowed guests in a lacy mustard-colored, form-fitting dress — and no shoes. She finished her look with a yellow bouquet and flowers in her hair, too.

Cross, 48, bucked tradition as well, wearing a sweater vest and white button-down for the occasion (for the ceremony, he added a jacket, bow tie and boutonnière).

As the bride walked down the aisle during her outdoor ceremony (she arrived to the nuptials in a canoe!), her dress fit right in with the changing colors of the fall foliage. Guests, including newlyweds Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, and Traveling Pants costar America Ferrera, also dressed in somewhat casual fall clothes for the autumn occasion. Tell us: What do you think of Tamblyn’s dress? Would you ever wear a wedding gown that wasn’t white, ivory or cream?

I know there will be plenty of people saying negative things about her dress. So to those people, I say…get over yourselves!!! It works for her…and is completely her style!

This is honestly the best she’s ever looked! Gorgeous!

Did all of the guests arrive via canoe or just the bride?

Yep on

How annoying. Some other sites keep saying her “unusual wedding dress” like women can’t have their own style on their wedding day. She looks beautiful. And I love the outdoorsy, simple wedding. It looked like people had a blast. Looks like a party/celebration of a couple and that’s how it should be.

I love it. I think she looks beautiful. She was probably very comfortable and felt like herself. I wore a white strapless wedding gown (got married on a gondola on Lake Las Vegas) and while I loved it I also felt like I was going to a costume party. I wore a gorgeous slinky black dress for our wedding dinner and felt more comfortable. To each their own. :-)

I like it !! Nice color on her. Your wedding should be what you want not what everyone else does.

Gorgeous photo, the dress is beautiful on her! Very beautiful! Perfect for a Fall Wedding!

I have absolutely no idea who she is but the dress looks pretty especially with the beauty of the natural backdrop. I have no idea who he is either but apparently she’s into older men. I mean that guy looks much older than 48

She looked gorgeous! Congratulations!!

Yes, I would wear a color other than cream, ivory or white (even though I did get married in white). I really liked Sharon Stone’s wedding dress from years ago; it was the most beautiful shade of pale pink.
