While there will always be wedding-dress trends that make their mark on the bridal world — minis, co-ords, jumpsuits, backless cutouts, oversize bows, and sheer illusions are just a few from recent history — the most unique look is one that caters to your personal style. If you love sequins, feathers, or a specific color, why not extend those preferences to your special day? Even casual details, such as zippers and stripes, can be worked into your wedding ensemble if you want them to be. Feeling like you during your walk down the aisle (or the signing of a marriage license at the courthouse) is incredibly important, after all. And for brides with more nontraditional taste, there are plenty of choices suited to your liking.
If nothing else, these spins on more classic silhouettes may lead you to a new idea, a specific fabric, a wedding-dress designer, or an outfit accoutrement that you wish to work with. From the metallic shimmer boasted by modern brands like Retrofête and The Vampire’s Wife to the recognizably avant-garde silhouettes from Danielle Frankel, Rosie Assoulin, and Andrea Iyamah, we have delivered a handful of unique bridal looks that will have you in the running for the most creative wedding ensemble your guests have ever seen. Keep reading for our unconventional bridal-style selections, and discover fresh fashion ideas at a range of price points. You can start shopping budget-friendly labels like Reformation and Eloquii, along with luxe couture pieces from the likes of Carolina Herrera, Galia Lahav, and Monique Lhuillier.
