Wearing a traditional white dress and veil is something that many of us have dreamed about since we were little girls. But as more brides decide to break from tradition, a new era of alternative brides has surfaced. From colored dresses to going barefoot, these alternative brides are all about making their wedding day truly their own. If the thought of wearing a traditional dress or long train don’t appeal to you, you are probably an alternative bride too. To help you give your wedding day styling a personal and unique edge, follow these style tips.

Look at dress alternatives

Many brides can feel pressured into wearing a wedding dress, even though it’s not their usual style.

If you are a bride to be who prefers wearing trousers to dresses, why should your wedding day be any different? You could wear a beautifully tailored suit or a glamorous jumpsuit to walk down the aisle. Separates are also becoming a popular wedding trend with brides opting for lace crop tops with long skirts or palazzo pants. Or if you want to wear a dress, go for something shorter rather than floor length. You’ll feel far more comfortable and relaxed in something that is more your usual style. It’s also likely that you will be able to wear these items of clothing, long after your wedding is over.

You don’t have to wear heels

Again, if you aren’t used to wearing high heels then why wear them on your wedding day. You can spend a lot of money of a pair of incredible heels, only to find that they feel uncomfortable and rub your feet. Many alternative brides have started using their wedding shoes to add personality and color to their outfits. You could wear brightly patterned Vans shoes or diamante covered Converse. Dr. Marten boots are also a popular option. If you do want to wear heels on your wedding day, you can try brands such as Melissa or Irregular Choice. They have mid and high heel options while also being decorative and fun. Whichever you decide, make sure they are comfortable and suitable for your wedding venue.

Be bold

There are no rules that state you have to wear a plain white dress if you don’t want to. For a truly unique wedding dress, why not try one that is patterned or in a bolder color. You can find dress designs with colorful floral patterns. Or ones in more contemporary colors such as peach, mint, and lilac. If you really want to make an impact, why not go for a bold neon green or yellow dress. You can even have a white dress but style it with a bold statement necklace and bracelets. Wearing such an attention grabbing dress will ensure that everyone’s attention stays firmly on you.

There may be people who try to discourage you from veering away from tradition. But remember that this is your big day. If you feel comfortable, beautiful and like yourself, then whatever you choose to wear to your wedding is the right choice. So have fun and choose something that suits your style and personality.
