Alternatives to the Traditional Wedding DressWritten by d'Italia
These days, personal style is all about originality. What’s ironic, though, is that so often originality of style incorporates rehashing older styles in new ways, or just being bold enough to bring them back around with confidence. And wedding dresses are no exception. For your wedding, be sure to be yourself, and if tying yourself down to the traditional norm for dresses isn’t you, consider these factors.
Color Gone are the days when white is the absolute for a wedding dress. Simple, understated, elegant hues are now more common, including pale pastels, champagne and lavender, but it’s increasingly more common to even see stand-outs like black incorporated. Length The ideal for wedding dresses has always been long and flowing, but practicality/simplicity has been wining out more and more. Consider anything from a standard gown to a knee-length dress to even a short, slim, edgy one. Era More and more it seems the modern thing is to be retro, and wedding dresses are perfect for that. If you have a favorite era, you’re sure to be able to find beautiful dresses to match, from Victorian to jazz flapperto fairy tale-inspired and beyond. And sometimes the best dresses simply incorporate elements of any of these into a modern fit and look.The bottom line is, don’t let expectations or norms hold you back from wearing exactly what you want when your big day arrives.
