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 love that she chose something different for her wedding, whatever the reason. She looks great and I hope they are happy. I plan on wearing a color other than white when I get married as well.

Not my cup of tea but not my wedding if it makes her happy than that’s what’s important

What a lovely dress! I really like it. My opinion is that, on such a special day, the bride can wear whatever she thinks is going to make her day outstanding and wonderful and comfortable. The memories, the way the dress looks and feels, the atmosphere of the occasion…all up to the bride and groom. If she wants to wear mustard yellow, go for it. In the photo above, she did look stunning with the autumn leaves turning gold. So beautiful!

I love her dress. I wore hot pink on my wedding day, and I’d do it again in an instant!

She can wear what she darn well pleases. It’s her wedding. As for the ? – would I? If I was getting married out in the wilderness, & it was a glorious autumn day, and I had hair the color of hers….I just might! She looks gorgeous!

I didn’t wear white, ivory, or cream. I opted for a more affordable bridesmaid dress in my wedding colors of brown & raspberry. It suited the occasion and us quite well. My husband wore khakis with a soft pink button down and his brown suit jacket. Lots of people in my family have since followed in my footsteps by choosing more affordable options in non-traditional colors.
