Amber Tamblyn's Wedding Dress: Actress Reveals Why She Wore A Yellow Gown

Amber Tamblyn bucked tradition when she wore a yellow dress at her wedding to actor David Cross in October. Now, the "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" actress is explaining her unusual fashion choice.

"It was marigold, and it had a train in the back that was cream," Tamblyn told Us Weekly recently. "There's nothing really traditional about me."

Tamblyn arrived to the ceremony, held in an undisclosed wooded location, via canoe and remained barefoot as she walked down the aisle. The wedding was attended by stars including Amy Poehler, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, and was DJed by Questlove. Tamblyn, 29, and Cross, 48, got engaged in August 2011 after dating for two years.

Tamblyn isn't the only celebrity bride who chose color on her wedding day. Click through the slideshow below for photos of more stars' non-white wedding dresses.
