We all know I'm a sucker for a colorful wedding, but my eyes almost fell out of my skull when Zahra emailed me about Anya's full-spectrum Australian rainbow wedding … the rainbow dress! The rainbow ribbon veil! The rainbow ribbon-flower bouquet! The RAINBOW EVERYTHING! Of course, it should surprise no-one that Anya runs a website called

Behold, the kissing of the hottie groom:

Behold, the bouquet made from rainbow ribbons:

The bouquet, in case you were wondering, was made by the bride's mum and her friends. Here's a little video of them working on it:

Behold, more kissing:

Wait can we talk about the dress?

Well, here's the news that may disappoint some of you: ANYA'S DRESS WAS CUSTOM-MADE. If you want one like this, you'd need to have it made for you. Click here for our list of custom dressmakers who specialize in stuff like this. (I think Wedding Dress Fantasy could rock this style especially hard.)

Here's what Anya said about having the dress made for her:

In answer to the question about how the dress was made: it was custom-made for me. I had a friend who is a burlesque dancer and she recommended her friend who is a wedding dress maker by day and a burlesque costume maker by night!

We met up and when I said "rainbow dress," she was not so sure. But after showing her my drawings of what i had in mind and talking my ideas through she was sold and totally pumped about it!

She made the it all from scratch, and had a hard time finding all the colours of netting i wanted. But she blew me way with the result!
The body was all boned and a proper corset (no bra needed!) and the back laced up. The inside was all silk so not scratchiness from the netting.

When we first put the rainbow colours against the dress we decided that it very bright and didn't blend in with the dress to well and so came up with the idea of using a white piece over netting it to tone the colours down and help it blend into the rest of the dress better. I think that's what really helped to pull the colours together!

And yes the veil is simply ribbons tied to a slide comb. Simple and easy!

  1. I so want this dress, my son has Autism and I wanted a colour wedding dress 😉 to celebrate our family.
    Can you direct me on how to get one and where from?
    Thank you

  2. The gown's gorgeous but so is the bride herself! I love that last kissing shot, she has such a shy, sweet face.

  3. Absolutely LOVE it! And totally reinforces my idea of rainbow bridesmaids…maybe I'll do a rainbow petticoat under my dress now because this is STUNNING!! 🙂
