Unique Wedding Dress Ideas for the Off-Beat Bride

You found the perfect partner by refusing to compromise about who you are and what you want. So, when it comes to choosing your wedding dress, why would you settle for something cookie cutter that doesn’t quite “fit” your beautifully unique self? 

Here are some wedding dress ideas for brides who want to accentuate their individual style on their special day.  

Add a Splash of Colour to Your Wedding Dress

More and more often, women are departing from white and off-white gowns for their wedding celebration. Many wedding designers are now incorporating colourful patterns into their dresses: Gowns may be dyed a vibrant or pastel colour to create floral or geometrical patterns. Or, the designer may incorporate colourful stitch work and embellishments that add pops of colour and texture to the dress. 

If you don’t just want a bit of colour, why not depart from the white wedding dress trend altogether? Many dress styles can now be ordered in gorgeous champagnes, blushes or even less traditional colours like red, blue and black. These choices will ensure you stand out as a bride, and they may be even more flattering than the palette-limitations of the white-ish norm. 

Transform Your Wedding Dress from the Reception to the Ceremony

It’s your big day, who says you have to stick to just one dress? A great idea for pleasing everyone (we know your mother-in-law may have her opinions) is to have more than one wedding dress.  

If you’re getting married in a more formal or church setting and need to be “covered up,” then a reception dress will give you the chance to show off your creative flair (and perhaps your curves). With a second dress, you can play with colours, length and bedazzle to make sure you have the perfect outfit to celebrate the night away in. 

A Wedding Dress by Any Other Length Can Still Be as Sweet

Floor length wedding dresses are beautiful, but they’re not your only option. Experiment with higher hemlines and dresses that are shorter in the front and then offer extra length in the back. Short dresses are great for a summer wedding in the vineyard; they are often more comfortable, let you move more easily and, perhaps most importantly, enable you to show off a show-stopping pair of shoes.
