5 Unconventional Wedding Dresses for the Modern Bride

If a classic white ball gown just really doesn't feel like your thing, there are an abundance of alternatives out there, and we're here to give you a few ideas on how to style them!

Short & Sweet

Who says your dress has to be long to be fancy? Whether you are opting for a more casual event, or just want to make a bold fashion statement, short dresses are an excellent option for the trend-setting, modern bride. Let the dress speak for itself and pair with something a little retro like the Eloise Bandeau Veil and the rhinestone Althea Earrings for a touch of sparkle.

A Flair for the Dramatic

Instead of a veil, why not wear a cape? The Solene dress is fierce but sophisticated, perfect for the chic modern bride wanting a bit of a royal edge. Keep it simple with the earrings with the delicate Crystal Threaders, and top it off with the Lucia Headpiece for major Greek goddess vibes.

Pretty in Pink

The classic white wedding dress will always be in style, but opting for a pink wedding dress adds a little extra fairytale romance to your big day. You can go with a shade of pink as bold or as soft as you see fit, but we personally love this beautiful ballerina pink dress. Accessorize with the Cerelia sash and Aurae pins for a little touch of sparkly sweetness.

The Jumpsuit

Jumpsuits come in a wide variety of styles, but whichever one you decide on, you are sure to look amazing while also being comfortable. Ditching the skirt allows for more freedom to move and groove, while also making a chic statement. If you still want a touch of tradition, pair with an asymmetrical veil like the Rue veil and add a touch of sparkle with a starry sash like the Edrea.

Simple & Sustainable

Planning a low-key backyard event, a simple elopement, or just simply wanting a more affordable and eco-conscious option? There are plenty of sustainable brands out there that make stunning dresses for the minimalist bride, who may want to buy a dress they can repurpose, or wear again and again. Pair with the lovely floral Marilyn Headpiece, and Orchid earrings for an ethereal cottagecore vibe.

What are you planning for your wedding? Are you traditional all the way, or are you leaning towards something a little different? We'd love to know!
