Every girl dreams of what her wedding dress will look like one day, but finding the perfect one is often easier said than done. The hunt for that perfect dress also tends to require tons of time and patience! But, when you find a wedding dress that meshes perfectly with your personal style, your special day is that much more memorable. Here is a list of nontraditional wedding dresses you should definitely know about:
Nowadays, strapless gowns with tons of tulle and volume are all the rage. So if you’re looking for something a little more unique, why not try a vintage (or vintage-inspired) dress with feminine details like a delicate lace overlay and sleeves? Kate Middleton’s awe-inspiring wedding gown gave way to a flurry of duplicates and lookalikes—and for good reason! Vintage dresses are eye-catching and classic, and are pretty much guaranteed to leave a lasting impression.
If you dream of finding a gorgeous, unconventional wedding gown, then color is an important variable to take into consideration. Many brides prefer a traditional white gown, so wedding dresses in shades of beige, taupe, or even pale lavender hues are a great alternative to the ceremonial white dress. You’ll have a variety of options to choose from if you decide to go with an off-white gown for your wedding day look.
Up until Audrey Hepburn’s famous wedding to Andrea Dotti and the new fashions of the 1960’s, no one thought to wear a short wedding dress. Today, even though short dresses still carry a non-traditional reputation, finding shorter designs that are beautiful and appropriate is a piece of cake. On the other hand, if you already found a stunning floor length dress that you wish was just a tad shorter, get a good tailor who can alter the gown to a different length. It’s a great way to add a personalized touch to your dream dress!
