The best alternatives to a traditional wedding dress

Queen Victoria set the trend of marrying in white on February 10, 1840, when she wore a white dress instead of traditional red at her wedding to Prince Albert. From that moment the wedding dress industry changed for centuries to come until the early 2010s when bridal designers started to introduce dramatic colours and silhouettes. Vera Wang ’s Spring 2012 collection featured only one white dress.  If you are looking to get married in an alternative outfit at your wedding, you can break the rules and chose to say ‘ I do’  in one of the below alternative options
