Have you ever wondered why even the most bold women choose to dress conservatively on their wedding day? If you take a look at the wedding pictures of your friends, it is likely that you will find them to be similar and safe. Weddings are the occasion when nobody wants to take a risk.
Why don’t you do something different and surprise everyone, for a change? It doesn’t take too much to make a statement, and here are some ideas to make sure your wedding look is unique and memorable.
For those of you who are really bold enough to defy tradition, choose a colored gown. Or if you aren’t fond of white, don’t settle for it on your wedding day. You will find stunning wedding gowns in every color of the rainbow, so pick the color that suits your skin tone the best. If you do not want to go all the way with color, how about choosing a white gown with a colorful print on it instead? There are plenty of white gowns with contrasting black details, but you can also find ones with embellishments in different colors.
Unique hair accessories
Pep up your bridal ensemble with one or two oversize accessories. The obvious choice is to use a large, but beautiful hairpiece or you could switch it for a large flower or a floral headband. Other options include chunky necklaces and colorful waistbands.
Two-piece wedding dresses
Replace the traditional long flowing wedding gown with a two-piece ensemble. My Lady Designs bridal collection, for example, allows you to mix and match any skirt with any bodice from the collection to create your own unique dress.
For the bride who wants something really different, you can even switch out the wedding gown for a pant suit instead. With this choice, your guests will always remember you unconventional, not to mention unusual look.
A hat and a veil
Replace the traditional tiara or headpiece with a hat over your veil. Wondering how you will turn out in it? You will undoubtedly be a picture-perfect bride. Perfect for an outdoor garden wedding, consider this option if your wedding style is casual or semi-formal.
How about stepping out of those uncomfortable heels and wearing a pair of comfy sneakers to your wedding? Or pair your wedding dress with a stunning pair of knee high boots. It is up to you to choose whether you would like to show off your shoes or keep them hidden under your wedding dress and keep your guests guessing what it is that you’ve chosen to wear.
A shorter hemline
The traditional wedding gown is long and white. But, you can always step up the drama by choosing a shorter hemline. The length of your dress can range from knee length to ankle length, and you can even pair it with a colorful underskirt for a vintage look. An asymmetrical hemline like you see in this Mori Lee gown would render you the epitome of style. With a shorter wedding dress, you can be certain of one thing—it will be practical, stylish and unique.
