Bridal Chic: Amazing Alternatives

Bridal Chic: Amazing Alternatives

Alternative wedding dress material and designs

The ceremony of marriage is one that relies extensively on tradition. While many brides adore this aspect of the wedding, a growing number of women are moving away from the traditional and towards the thoroughly modern. An excellent way to break with tradition is with the wedding gown; here are three ways to make YOUR gown amazingly alternative!


Go Color Crazy

In recent seasons, bridal couture has incorporated a wider range of colours away from traditional white and ivory lace and towards a wider palette of colors (Vera Wang shocked the fashionista crowd when she didn't include a single white wedding gown in a bridal collection). Widening your horizons on the color question means that you have even more scope for creativity but if the choice seems top much then go for a color you know suits you, even if that colour is black, Red or Green!

Dare to be hold

That classic silhouette of a strapless dress is giving way more and more to asymmetric, off-the-shoulder designs so feel free to experiment with new, exciting necklines. If you're really daring, add sheer lace details to the bodice for dramatic effect; for a really racy and definitely non-traditional look, the 'naked' wedding gown is simply sheer lace from head to toe!
