There are exactly two things you need to know about The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco's wedding to tennis pro Ryan Sweeting, which took place New Year's Eve in Southern California. One, Henry Cavill is officially still on the market THANK HEAVENS. And two, her dress was pink.
According to Us Weekly, Cuoco's poofy strapless princess gown was designed by Vera Wang. The embroidered silk dress appears to be Look 7 from Wang's Fall 2014 bridal collection, which, you may recall, was made up entirely of rosy-hued confections. And of course, being a Vera Wang and all, it was beautiful. But... I think it's enough.
There, I said it! ENOUGH with the pink wedding dresses, celebrities. As people who basically get to dress up in fancy ball gowns for a living, you'd think that on the one day of their life it's totally appropriate to wear a white one, they'd take it. But no. They need to be *different*. But here's the thing: Wearing pink on your wedding day isn't exactly controversial or intriguing anymore -- it just feels kind of tired and, dare I say it? I do: try-hard.
Sure, when Gwen Stefani did it in that stunning dip-dyed Dior way back in 2002, the concept of wearing a non-traditional color on your big day felt fresh, new and fit for a rockstar -- but it's been losing its cred ever since. Nearly a decade later, Reese Witherspoon picked a pale pink Monique Lhuillier dress for her second marriage. Anne Hathaway revived the look in October 2012 with her custom Valentino gown, followed a few short weeks afterwards by Jessica Biel in couture Giambattista Valli -- who actually dressed her bridal party in white.
Which brings us back to our newly betrothed Cuoco, whose dress was more impossibly Pepto-hued than all the others. I've seen enough episodes of Say Yes To the Dress to know how important it is for a bride to feel unique and special on her wedding day -- but at this point in time, wearing pastel pink isn't going to land you any magazine covers.
So please, future Hollywood brides (here's looking at you, Kim Kardashian, Lauren Conrad and Olivia Palermo), I beg of you: Can we leave the big pink dresses to prom queens, Gwyneth Paltrow circa '99 and Molly Ringwald? Stefani's Dior has been stowed away in a museum for more than two years now -- ergo, it's pretty much ancient history. I say, let's retire this trend once and for all.
