The Bride Didn't Wear White! 8 Celebs Who Walked Down the Aisle in Nontraditional Wedding Dresses

Avril Lavigne wore black when she married Chad Kroeger, but she wasn't the only star who chose an unconventional gown!

Many little girls fantasize about their wedding day and picture themselves walking down the aisle in a beautiful white, princess-like dress as their future husband watches them with her awe in his eyes. But for some celebrities, that fantasy has a unique twist.

Avril Lavigne decided to go against the grain when she married Chad Kroeger in France -- she was decked out in a black gown by Monique Lhuillier. But the singer is just the latest in a trend of celebrities who decided against traditional white for their big day.
