 No need to adjust your screen, this gown is actually green. Elizabeth Taylor was a fan of coloured dresses, wearing green, yellow and purple at three of her weddings. Taking on the pastel trend, this shade is ideal for a spring or summer wedding and a bride with a bold sense of style.

This sleek, simple cut has an Edwardian feel, but the beaded tulle overlay gives the capped shoulders and high neckline a new, modernised aesthetic.
