Wedding Alternatives: Dresses
We love bridal traditions, but we also adore brides who go against tradition, and who trust their own instincts of how a wedding should be. It’s this notion of individuality that inspired our on-going blog series Wedding Alternatives, and today we’re pulling dresses into the spotlight to highlight some of our favourite ways of breaking away from traditional bridal fashions.
Whether it’s a slinky Jenny Packham number or a fiery Aurelio Costarella gown, channel your favourite bold colour into the design of the most important dress you’ll ever wear.
If only dresses were made of diamonds… Failing that, head-to-toe sequins are a wonderful way to look and feel your sparkly best on the big day.
Nothing says drama more than black, but you don’t have to follow in the footsteps of Sarah Jessica Parker to achieve this look – introduce a touch of noir into the lace bodice or the net overlay, and you’ll be just as eye-catching.
Your dress can become an extension of your bouquet by choosing a design which incorporates delicate floral embroidery.
Taking inspiration from the botanicals trend (which you may have already jumped on for your stationery and décor) this Dolce & Gabbana dress is nothing short of mesmerising.
Ever been to a wedding where the bride’s “something blue” was the dress itself? Nor have we, but this dreamy little number has us seriously re-considering the all-white look.
