Avril Lavigne Wears Black to Wed Chad Kroeger

If you thought that Avril Lavigne lost her edge sometime between "Sk8r Boi" and "Girlfriend," think again. The "Here's to Never Growing Up" singer donned a black gown to wed Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger this week. But she's hardly the first to forgo the traditional white gown. Here's a rundown of celebrities who didn't wear white on their wedding day.

We wonder if Carrie Bradshaw would approve. The Sex and the City star looks fierce standing next to her husband here, but during her wedding day, the bride made what she considers a fashion misstep. Parker famously wore a black gown when she walked down the aisle during her wedding to Matthew Broderick. Unfortunately, she has some regrets about wearing such a dark ensemble: "I'd wear a beautiful, proper wedding dress like I should have worn that day," said Parker when asked if she'd wear black again.

Jessica Biel

Sometimes white just feels a tad overdone. Jessica Biel married everyone's '90s dream husband Justin Timberlake in a lovely pink gown instead of the traditional white.

Amber Tamblyn

Anyone else know that The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants star Amber Tamblyn was dating Arrested Development star David Cross? Well, the two eventually got hitched and Tamblyn wore this bright yellow number to their outdoorsy wedding.

Pamela Anderson

Leave it to Pamela Anderson to sport as little as possible on her wedding day to Kid Rock. Before the ceremony — which was held on a boat — Anderson stripped down to a bikini. But, hey, at least the bikini was the traditional white, right?

Mama June

Here comes Mama June! Mama June's wedding to her baby daddy Sugar Bear was long overdue — maybe because she had to take her time making her own camo wedding dress?
