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

A white wedding dress is not the only choice

 This lavender Vera Wang macramé lace mermaid gown with dramatic skirt can be the perfect choice for a trendy bride. 

Choose a jump-suit for your wedding 

If you are worried about dragging a heavy wedding dress around all day, a wedding jumpsuit is the ultimate alternative. This elegant off- shoulder long sleeve jumpsuit by Carolina Herrera is as elegant and as formal as a wedding dress.

Be daring by creating a transparent effect 

Brides marrying in an exotic location often chose to say” I do “ in a shear wedding dress from head to toe with touches of lace. For an ultra delicate sheer dress that can be both breezy and light we have chosen this floral embroidered Oscar de la Renta sheer gown which is both romantic and sexy at the same time.

Be comfortable and effortlessly chic in a short dress

A long wedding dress is not the only choice for many brides ; with modern weddings being less about getting married in a chapel and much more about comfort and personal style , short dresses are becoming more desirable every season. ¿why not dance the night away in this gorgeous Oscar de la Renta short dress with artful drippings?

Mix and match your perfect bridal look 

Separates are defiantly one of the best alternatives to the traditional white wedding dress. You can mix and match skirts and tops from the bohemian style Catherine Deane bridal collection to create your unique bridal style.

Wear something blue

¿Why not choose a blue wedding dress for your “Something Blue” ‘ and ditch the traditional white dress for a more statement dress? This blue non-traditional  Anne Barge mikado ball gown symbolizes stability, security and lifelong loyalty. 

Beautiful Bridesmaids Bouquets

 Complement your bridesmaids with coordinating flowers  that will make a special impression and dazzle up their outfits. The flowers need not to be perfectly matched with your bridal bouquet or flower arrangements as long as a common element unites them together.

Antique 

Since one is never quite like another, a vintage ring has the advantage of being yours and yours alone. Delicate Edwardian Designs from the early 1900s are as popular as the sophisticated art deco looks from the twenties and thirties.

Prong Setting

This iconic engagement ring is characterised by a round brilliant cut stone in a prong setting. Designed for the first time by Charles Lewis Tiffany in 1886, the silhouette works on nearly every bride, regardless of her personal style.

Emerald Cut

Worn widely in the art deco era, this rectilinear stone takes its name from the traditional cut for emeralds. Yet no other shape so well deserves diamond’s other name; ‘ice’. This beautiful gem stone can be worn alone or with side stones

Emerald Cut Ring

Three Stones

Symbolising a couple’s past, present and future, this style features three stones of roughly the same size and shape that are most often round. Three-

Micro Pave
Invented in Paris about 20 years ago, this technique involves setting many tiny stones on a ring. The gems can appear everywhere, from the band and prongs to around the main stone.

Micro Pave Setting Ring

Eternity Band

In the 1950s, Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn popularised this look, featuring an endless circle of diamonds. Because it relies on a collection of relatively small stones to dazzle, it can be an affordable alternative to a diamond solitaire.

Eternity Band Ring

Alliance Ring

The simple alliance ring, in gold or platinum is favoured by both minimalists, who love it for its simplicity, and jewellery loving brides who want a ring that goes with everything.

Alliance Ring

Wide-Band Solitaire
Bold, sleek and modern , this style is ideal for brides who prefer not to wear an engagement ring with a wedding band. Its strong enough to stand alone.

Wide-Band Solitaire Ring

Side Stones

A favourite from the 1940s on, this ring uses two smaller stones, such as baguettes, to flaunt the main stone by flooding it with light and making it sparkle even more.

Pulled Back

Side Bun

The side bum is a flattering style that suites most brides A beautiful and delicate hair accessory makes this off-centre chignon party-ready. To create a fuller bun add extra volume to the hair at the base of a low ponytail before twisting it into a knot.

Side Bun Bridal Hairstyle

High Bun

An elegant and classic up- do that looks great with a tiara or headband. Start this look with a french twist instead of a ponytail. It’s easier to form the bun when the hair is already twisting from its base. If you begin with a ponytail, the hair tends to hang straight down rather than twist up.

High Bus Bridal Hairstyle

Long Waves

For a hair-do that is polished yet natural, try these loose waves . Use a thickening spray on damp hair before blow-drying and wrapping individual sections around a curling iron. The spray is a great addition to the hairstyle because it helps keep the finished curls from wilting before the evening is over.

Long Waves Bridal Hairstyle

Low Chignon

A sleek, low chignon accessorised with a single comb on the side of the head gives this otherwise demure style an air of drama. Work a silicone serum through damp hair before blow-drying to boost shine and control flyaway hairs.

Low Chignon Bridal Hairstyle

French Twist

A voluminous french twist with a Swarovski hair comb creates a hairstyle that has an au-courant feel while maintaining a classic and elegant look. Back-comb your hair before attempting this look because then you will be able to achieve the required volume.

Choosing Your Wedding Gown

Whether you have a clear idea of your ideal wedding gown or are not sure about the style you want to chose, it is vital that you get the professional advise you need in plenty of time to make sure that you look your best on your big day. It is very important to consider the time of the year you are planning on getting married. Bridal dresses in lighter materials such as tulle, chiffon and other soft and floaty fabrics create a light and delicate style which are ideal for a summer wedding whereas Satin, Lace or heavier fabrics are the perfect choice for winter weddings. If you are concerned about being cold in the evening consider wearing a matching warp or bolero to complement your dress.Wedding gowns can de made in different shades of white, cream, champagne and Ivory so before deciding on the colour consider your venue or the theme of the wedding. A traditional church ceremony is the perfect setting for a more classic and traditional gown but if you are getting married on the beach or having a open air civil ceremony you can opt for a more extravagant and less formal.

You should remember that whatever style of the dress you go for, should feel comfortable and reflect you as an individual, giving you a look that not only accentuate all the best bits of you, but one in which you will feel a million dollar.
