Go bold or go home.
Rocking bold red, pink, or purple lips for the big day makes a big statement. There's nothing like a bright pop of color against a white wedding dress to elevate a bridal beauty look. And as these celebrity brides prove, there are so many ways to wear shades that stand out: Go classic, like Grace Kelly, smolder like siren Bianca Jagger, or play up your own signature style like Sofía Vergara. Get inspired by these bold brides, who chose equally eye-catching lipstick for their weddings.
