See Amber Tamblyn's Lacy Yellow Wedding Gown

Here comes the bride … in a burst of color.

When Amber Tamblyn and David Cross exchanged vows on Saturday, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants actress opted for a non-traditional wedding dress.

Instead of the customary white frock most brides wear, Tamblyn, 29, wowed guests in a lacy mustard-colored, form-fitting dress — and no shoes. She finished her look with a yellow bouquet and flowers in her hair, too.

Cross, 48, bucked tradition as well, wearing a sweater vest and white button-down for the occasion (for the ceremony, he added a jacket, bow tie and boutonnière).

As the bride walked down the aisle during her outdoor ceremony (she arrived to the nuptials in a canoe!), her dress fit right in with the changing colors of the fall foliage. Guests, including newlyweds Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, and Traveling Pants costar America Ferrera, also dressed in somewhat casual fall clothes for the autumn occasion. Tell us: What do you think of Tamblyn’s dress? Would you ever wear a wedding gown that wasn’t white, ivory or cream?

My dress was actually black, and no it was not on Halloween LOL It was a second wedding for both of us and I wore what I liked… not what society says I should wear.

A bride can wear whatever she wants to at her own wedding. It’s nobody’s business but hers. Its perfectly fine to buck tradition if it suits you.

Eva, that was probably her father, Russ Tamblyn, who’s about to turn 78.

Good for her for doing something different than the usual – she looks beautiful and the setting looks lovely. Congrats!

That’s her dad, Russ Tamblyn. He’s in his 70s.

Is she on her Dad’s arm or is that the groom? I’m not being a smart alec. I just don’t know.

Beautiful setting and unique choice. She looks great! For those of you commenting on the man in the photo, that’s not David Cross next to her, probably her father. Google it if you don’t know who he is. You might know him best as the weird guy with the coke bottle glasses who lives in his mother’s attic in Men in Black 2. He was in the first one at the Morgue using the fly swatter to smoosh bugs.
