I have only seen a select few weddings where women did not wear a white gown, maybe a red or a blue gown. Once a black gown, for a gothic themed wedding.
Do you believe in the tradition that a bride should wear a white wedding gown?
Do you think a bride could wear a red, or blue gown?
Or even better,
Would you as a woman wear a suit to your wedding instead? And men, how would you feel about your girlfriend wearing a suit to your wedding? :D

A bride can wear whatever she wants. Colors are vastly meaningless (Except in certain cultures, like India, where they wear red to weddings and white to funerals (I believe)). But, at least here in America, the color of a gown is not only meaningless, but completely misunderstood. As I said below, white is not about purity, it was just a statement started by Queen Victoria.
If you can rock a suit, why not? If that's what you're comfortable in, why not? If your groom doesn't get that it's what makes you feel beautiful and sexy and perfect on your big day then is he really worth it? It's not up to any one else what you want to wear, all that matters is that you feel stunning and comfortable and beautiful and like a bride. And happy, most importantly happy.
So show cleavage, wear black, hell wear hunting camo and orange vests for all I care! All that matters is that you're happy. If the man has a problem with what she's wearing then maybe they're not so great together after all? If I got married and my man, in all seriousness, wanted to wear the dress and wanted me to wear a suit I'd go for it. It's all about what's going to make you happy.1
