Sex and the City star and fashion icon Sarah Jessica Parker made the risky decision to wear a black ruffled designer gown when marrying her husband Matthew Broderick in 1997.

Sarah Jessica Parker has since admitted that she regrets taking the unconventional route on her wedding day, saying that if the couple were to renew their vows she would "Wear a beautiful, proper wedding dress, like [she] should have worn that day."

The actress and mother-of-three said she chose to wear black at the time so as to not draw attention to herself but it seems that this was a fashion decision that will haunt her for years.

Greys Anatomy actress Ellen Pompeo also opted for a black wedding dress to recite her nuptials to music producer Chris Ivery. The couple had a small and private wedding in New York's City hall in 2007. Ellen wore a little black dress by Yves Saint Laurent that she brought in Paris the previous summer.

"I get to dress up all the time. I completely understand women wanting a wedding, because most people don't get to dress up in gorgeous dresses and have their hair and make-up done" she told Allure Magazine. "I, however, am fortunate enough that I get to put on beautiful dresses and make-up and jewels all the time."

The most recent actress to stray from the traditional white wedding is 90210 actress Shenae Grimes who married British Model Josh Beech on 10th May in a small unconventional ceremony just outside London.

Shenae wore a black Vera Wang gown from the designer's fall 2012 collection as she walked up the aisle in the countryside Tudor Manor while house music was played throughout the ceremony. The couple said their vows to a remix of the Beastie Boys and Led Zepplin.

"We're just kind of taking it easy, doing it our own way" said Grimes when asked about her wedding a few months before the big day.

Vera Wang's fall 2012 bridal collection features a number of stunning black gowns for anyone who wishes to follow in the footsteps of these unconventional celebrities.
