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?

For those who are wondering who the older man is with her… That’s not the husband, it’s the actress’ father.

While it’s not something I would personally wear, I LOVE it when people do things at their weddings that express their individuality personalities! It’s their special day, so they should enjoy it any way they want to. Congrats to the newlyweds!

David Cross is a hardcore atheist, and probably wanted nothing to do with the traditional image of a Christian marriage. This is as much a statement about politics and religion as it is fashion, probably moreso. Gotta love the oblivious media.

Uh, the man she is with in the photo is not David Cross. I would assume it is her father or a similar figure.

Also, you all know that David Cross is a devout atheist right? This isn’t just some fashion statement, they probably wanted as little to do with traditional Judeo-Christian imagery as possible.

I like this girl, she always seemed a bit unconventional and older than her years. She looks gorgeous in her wedding dress with the fall colors in the background. Good luck to both of them, hope they have many happy years thinking outside the box together :))

Eve – did you even read the article – it was short? David wore a WHITE shirt, etc.. This is her father, Russ (look him up -West Side Story) wearing a YELLOW shirt, etc. I am surprised they didn’t mention him by name. Probably a very young reporter who doesn’t know their Hollywood history very well.

ok, I’ ve read both articles that are up on A.T.’s wedding, but I can’t find anywhere WHERE they got married. Somewhere on the East Coast I presume?? C’mon, PEOPLE. Get with it!

I don’t like the color at all but that’s her style and it’s her wedding. Wearing white on your wedding day meant something WAY DIFFERENT years ago that I doesn’t at all today unless you’re one of the Duggars ;) so I really don’t care what brides wear!

She looks beautiful and everyone has their own individual unique style, especially for their wedding day. My dress is black and people think it’s ridiculous but it’s mine and I don’t care.
